Frontstretch Podcast: Breaking Down 200 Victories for Kyle Busch & Richard Petty, Chris Buescher Chats Hot Start

In this week’s edition of the Frontstretch PodcastDustin Albino and Mike Neff break down the difference in the 200 race victories for Kyle Busch and Richard Petty with a pile of statistics, after Busch joined the 200 club last weekend at Auto Club Speedway.

Without necessarily comparing the two, we dig into what makes the feat incredible. How many wins will Busch end up with? Neff says he thinks Busch will get over 100 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victories, winning at least five per season for the next 10 years.

Then, we talk the aero package in Fontana, as well as the disaster that was the final round of qualifying on Friday (March 15).

Meanwhile, we hit on topics such as Team Penske being the best organization in the Cup Series, Kurt Busch being the best Chevrolet driver and Austin Dillon finally getting a much-needed result after showing speed all season long.

Finally, Chris Buescher joins the show to discuss his hot start to the 2019 season, what JTG Daugherty Racing has done to improve its program and expectations moving forward. The Texan is on a streak of four consecutive top-20 finishes, equaling his best at the Cup level.
