Two Championships, the record for the most race wins in a season, most all-time wins in all three of NASCAR’s national touring series, most overall wins in the Xfinity series, Kyle Busch has a lot of accolades to show for in his illustrious NASCAR career.
But his success in Superspeedways was always limited as he is yet to win the historical Daytona 500 with his solid superspeedway win coming at Auto Club 400 in 2014. In an exclusive interview with Toyota Racing Development, Kyle Busch has expressed his opinion on how he approaches superspeedway at this point of his career.

Kyle Busch acknowledged the fact that his teammate Denny Hamlin has been doing a good job in Superspeedways as he has won three of the last seven 500’s. Kyle Busch added that Denny Hamlin is getting the most out of the superspeedway races and his preparation is more fruitful than his so maybe he needs to change things.
“I feel like Denny (Hamlin) does a pretty good job of preparing the most. As we’ve seen, he’s won three of the last seven 500s. He’s getting the most out of it as well. I don’t know what his preparations are, but they are probably different than mine which has become more fruit for him than me, Maybe I need to change something” Kyle Busch said.
Kyle Busch went on to say that he feels that in reality winning races is more circumstantial pointing out to his previous crashes and wrecks in Daytona 500 when he was leading, which cost him the win.
“But in reality, I feel like it’s so circumstantial anyways, I’m like ‘What is the point?’. I was leading the Daytona 500 a few years ago and had a flat left rear, crash. I was leading the Daytona 500 with 13 laps to go and blew up. Running top-eight, top-10 most of the day, another year, finished second or third in that one. Whatever happens, happens. You could be rennin fourth going into (turn) three and win the race or be leading and get wrecked,” Kyle Busch added.
Kyle Busch will step into Sunday’s “The Great American Race” in Daytona hoping to have his win and not to feature in the list of legends such as Tony Stewart, Rusty Wallace, and Mark Martin who retired without wining the historical race.
