Kyle Busch Running 5 Truck Races in 2020

Kyle Busch will enter five NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series events in 2020, according to a tweet Tuesday morning from Kyle Busch Motorsports’ official account.

Similar to 2019, Busch is competing in the maximum allowed for full-time NASCAR Cup Series drivers in NASCAR’s tertiary series. Busch won all five of his starts last season, including a win from the pole at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. All of his wins came in the No. 51 Cessna/Beechcraft Toyota Tundra for KBM.

In 2020, Busch will compete in the races at Las Vegas (Feb. 21), Atlanta Motor Speedway (March 14), Homestead-Miami Speedway (March 20), Texas Motor Speedway (March 27) and Kansas Speedway (May 30).

Three of those tracks were the sites of Busch’s wins last year. Homestead-Miami and Kansas are the only two circuits different from 2019. Busch won at Martinsville Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway, but will not return to those tracks in 2020, as Martinsville lost its spring date to Richmond Raceway and Charlotte is now a part of the Triple Truck Challenge. Cup drivers can’t compete in the races that host the Triple Truck Challenge or the playoffs.

Busch begins his five-race stint in the first event following the season opener at Daytona International Speedway. He has 56 wins in over 17 years of competition in the Truck series, the most all-time in the series. Busch has at least two Truck Series victories per year since 2013.

Can’t wait to see if Kyle can duplicate last year. NASCAR’s rule is really putting a lid on what could be for the record books.
