He started the race from the rear of the field twice and still managed to win the Lucas Oil 225 Saturday night at Chicagoland Speedway.
Kyle Busch passed 61 trucks throughout the race after having to start the race in the 32nd spot and charging to the front. A speeding penalty after the competition caution on lap 32 sent Busch back to the end of field but he was back up battling for the lead within 20 laps.
The racing surface, although one of the roughest on the schedule, provided many grooves for the drivers to find their way around the 1.5 mile track. At times there were drivers fanning out four wide for position.

A penalty has been handed down to the winning team in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCTWS) race Friday night at Iowa Speedway.
NASCAR officials found that the No. 51 for Kyle Busch Motorsports had a violation in that the race truck failed to meet post-race height requirements, the second such violation discovered in two consecutive races.
The infraction will cost crew chief Eric Phillips a $6,000 fine and he has been placed on NASCAR probation until Dec. 31. The driver of the truck for that race, Erik Jones, will lose 10 championship driver points and KBM Motorsports owner Kyle Busch will lose 10 championship owner points.
Jones won the Iowa Speedway race Friday night to launch the team to its seventh win out of nine races this season.

The crew chief of the Kyle Busch Motorsports’ No. 51 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the owner have been penalized after a post-race inspection found the truck too low.
The owner of the truck, Kyle Busch, drove it to Victory Lane after dominating Thursday night’s UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway.
The infraction violates the 2014 NASCAR rule book in Section 20B-12.8.1 (truck failed to meet post-race height requirements).

Miles the Monster should be afraid of Kyle Busch as he won the Buckle Up 200 presented by Click it or Ticket Saturday afternoon in the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway. He also won the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race Friday night. Can he win all three races this weekend?
Busch had to work in the beginning to get to the lead. Pole-sitter Joey Logano had a strong lead and Busch made his way to the second spot by lap 49. By lap 63, Busch gained on Logano and after a debris caution on lap 73, Busch was able to power his way to clean air. Trevor Bayne and Matt Kenseth attempted to get the lead from Busch on a couple of tries but the No. 54 was too strong to take any opposition.

Kyle Busch seems to know his way around a race track in a truck. He’s started in four truck races this season and has won in every entry.
He started on the pole and Busch won the Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on Friday night.
Matt Crafton gave Busch some good competition in the middle of the race. Prior to a caution that was brought out by a spin by Brennan Newberry, Busch came down pit road for service. He didn’t get the service as his crew chief pushed him on through as the yellow flag was displayed. He would get service when the other trucks came down pit road for tires and fuel. After that round of pit stops on lap 76, Matt Crafton took the lead.

It was a wild night in Concord, North Carolina for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series’ (NCWTS) North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
It was a no-brainer for Kyle Busch who had the pole for Friday night’s race and stayed out front for almost the entire race. Joe Nemecheck did not pit after a caution and restarted in the lead on lap 98 and led four laps. The rest was all Kyle Busch as he wins his third race in three starts in 2014 for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

Kyle Busch was able to hang on to win a caution-plagued SFP 250 at Kansas Speedway Friday night.
He started on the pole and a pole winner hadn’t won a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) since 2012, but it was done Friday night after Busch battled to win the race.
Busch started third on the final restart and raced Crafton hard as he moved through the field and Crafton held his ground. Lapped traffic played into Busch’s hand as he was able to get to the second position with 26 laps to go in the race. He would take the lead with 21 laps to go and he would grab the win.

Kyle Busch was good on restarts and proved that in a Green-White-Checkered finish in the Auto Club 400 race at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California on Sunday afternoon.
Busch displayed speed on restarts throughout the race but couldn’t make the charge to the front. That would change in the last three laps of the race. In the G-W-C situation, Busch started in the sixth position and had a chance to sneak by Tony Stewart and Kurt Busch who were challenging each other for the lead. Busch’s No. 18 brought Rookie Kyle Larson with him and they battled each other for the lead by the time the checkered flag flew. Larson nearly made it a weekend sweep at Auto Club Speedway.

It rained and delayed the race. The rain stopped and 124 laps were run before it rained again. It stopped and the race was able to go the distance, but with three laps to go, a caution was called and then a downpour erupted and the race was called. It was Carl Edwards with the win in Sunday’s Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
As if the rain didn’t cause enough drama, NASCAR’s Vice President of Competition Robin Pemberton stated in a press conference following the race that someone in flag stand leaned on the caution light switch and six seconds after the lights came one, the flagman saw that the lights were on and waved the caution flag with three laps to go. It was when the lights came on, Pemberton said, when they froze the field and that made up the finishing order. Just as the yellow flag came out, the sky opened up and started to pour on the racetrack.

It hadn’t rained in 70 days before Saturday’s race, but it was a wet mess in Avondale, Arizona by late afternoon. With only 32 laps to go in Saturday’s Nationwide race action at Phoenix International Raceway, rain entered the area and drowned the track with raindrops which caused the red flag to stop action during the Blue Jeans Go Green 200, presented by Cotton, the fabric of our lives.
Kyle Busch had just gotten back to the lead after he and Brad Keselowski sparred after a restart on lap 142 after the engine let go in Derrike Cope’s car that caused a caution. At that time, Busch had led all but 13 laps of the race at the time of the red flag.

Four feet was the distance between the winner and second place in the NextEra 250 at Daytona International Speedway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS).
Timothy Peters had the lead going into the last four laps but it was a move by Kyle Busch at the last second that enabled him to get past Peters and win the race by .016 seconds!
There were two lines of racing throughout much of the contest with not much movement throughout the race. The top line didn’t work as well as the bottom groove as far as aerodynamics so racing sort of stalled as the laps ticked down.
There wasn’t one green-white-checkered finish in Friday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race, but three and Kyle Busch led all three to win the Ford Ecoboost 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Jeb Burton was the cause of the first G-W-C when he got into the wall and cut a right front tire. Kyle Busch was able to keep the lead as Johnny Sauter spun to cause a second G-W-C and a great restart for Busch earned him the win on the final G-W-C.
Kyle Busch was shuffled back in the top ten a few times today, but found his way to the front again to cross the finish line first in the Servicemaster 200 at Phoenix International Raceway Saturday afternoon. This is his 12th win of the 2013 NASCAR Nationwide Series season.
Austin Dillon and Sam Hornish, Jr. are vying for the championship and the battle will go to Homestead-Miami Speedway. Hornish, Jr. was not happy with the car’s setup all weekend long, but was able to muscle out a fifth place finish. Austin Dillon was in the top ten all afternoon and finished third. Justin Allgaier passed Dillon on the last lap to take the second place finish. Dillon will enter the last race of the season with an eight point advantage over Hornish in the championship standings.
