KYLE BUSCH #51
TEAM: Go Nitro
DATE OF BIRTH: May 2, 1985
HOMETOWN: Las Vegas, NV
A NASCAR legend, but can he transfer those skills to rallycross? Busch’s talent behind the wheel is undoubted, but loose surfaces and 600BHP AWD cars make RX an altogether different proposition, one which even the likes of Sebastien Loeb and Petter Solberg took a while to get a winning feeling in. One advantage Busch certainly has over the aforementioned rally legends is his experience of close quarter racing and contact, which will stand him in good stead come turn one!
Kyle made his debut at Wild Horse Pass for the 3rd race of the Nitro RX season in the Go Nitro car. This motorsports legend drives in all three NASCAR national series and races full time in the NASCAR Cup Series. Busch is the 2015 and 2019 Cup champion and has made the Championship 4 from 2015-19. Busch's 59 Cup wins are most active drivers. He now ranks ninth on the all-time wins list. Busch is the all-time record-holder for wins in both the NASCAR Xfinity Series (102) and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (61). He also is the 2009 Xfinity champion. Busch has 222 victories among all three NASCAR national series.
