Kyle Busch Will be Back at No. 18 for the Sprint All-Star
Daytona left Kyle Busch in a dire situation after being considerably injured and out of the NASCAR for quite some time. Looks like the tables have turned and Busch will be back at no. 18 at the Joe Gibbs in a Toyota Camry during this weekend’s all-star sprint race. Busch tweeted about his return much to the applause of all his fans on the social network. The race will be at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, his first race after a long hiatus.
Busch’s injury was primarily on his leg affecting both his right and left legs with relatively serious fractures. The injury happened during an accident at the NASCAR XFINITY series way back in February 21st. The All-Star race carries no points but he is still looking forward to the race to get back in to the form he was.
His rush for points will begin the following week at the Coca Cola 600 where qualification begins for the major Sprint Cup. In order to get to the Chase, Busch will have to win one or more of the final races during the season. One issue hindering Busch for the Chase is the fact that he will need to be in the top 30 overall in terms of points which can be a difficult if not insurmountable task as he hasn’t raced for several weeks. The officials are willing to make an exception and waive off the rule considering his top tier overall performance apart from his injury and absence.
