Kyle Busch isn’t just having a very good season, or even a great one: he’s having one of the best seasons in NASCAR history. He added another notch on his belt on Sunday by winning the Sprint Cup Centurion Boats at the Glen in dominating fashion. And definitely had a better day than everyone involved in this crash near the end of the race (although there were no serious injuries, just a lot of race cars turned to junk metal):
With the win, Busch clinched the No. 1 seed in the upcoming Chase for the Cup. He also became the first NASCAR driver to win three road course races in one season, as part of his 16 wins overall in all NASCAR national series. It’s pretty heady stuff for a 23 year-old once considered too hot-headed and unreliable to be a title contender. Joe Gibbs Racing took a chance on him this season, and the risk has paid off.
