Chase Elliott goes nuts, Busch has 'rare' trait and Logano warns Byron

Chase Elliott goes nuts, Busch has ‘rare’ trait and Logano warns Byron

I see we’ve reached the “Wow, Kurt Busch won, didn’t see that one coming” portion of the NASCAR calendar. 

Frankly, it’s a little early this year, too! Kurt usually doesn’t check in until around July.

But, I guess that’s what happens when you drive for Michael Jordan … in a car with the iconic Jordan brand shoes plastered on the front. 

“I didn’t want to have to make a phone call to MJ afterwards on why we did not win,” Busch said after the race. “When I switched from Roush to Penske we won in our sixth race together. When I switched over to SHR, I think it was, again, like our sixth race, won at Martinsville. 

“This one took a little bit, but here we are. We’re winners. It’s a process. The Ganassi car, we won mid-summer when I switched to them. Early in my career it was all about me, me, me, and now I’ve understood this is a team, and every element is super important.”

Preach, Kurt!

Kurt Busch won for yet another team Sunday at Kansas.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. praises Kurt Busch’s “rare” quality 

Before we dive into Kansas, let’s pay attention for a second to what Kurt just said. 

Actually, let’s let Dale Earnhardt Jr. have a shot at it, first, through Twitter.

“@KurtBusch takes bad teams and makes them better,” Junior tweeted Sunday. “He takes teams that didn’t even exist last year and makes them better. It’s a rare quality even some of NASCAR’s greats didn’t possess.”

Big statement, Dale. But, it’s probably true. 

Busch has won everywhere he’s gone: The championship back in 2004 with Jack Roush; 10 races with Penske from 2006-11; six more times with Stewart-Haas and then one race per year from 2019-21 with Chip Ganassi. 

Let’s be honest, though … this one was the most impressive. 

Not only did Busch put 23XI Racing in Victory Lane for just the second time, it took him just 13 races to do so and he did it at a 1.5-mile track.
