Kyle Busch, the hottest driver
in the land is set to return for the 29th Annual Miller Lite Slinger
Nationals July 15th. Kyle will be driving one of his own Kyle Busch
Motorsports cars prepared by his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Crew
Chief Richie Wauters. Busch and Wauters have proven to be a potent
combination taking two of the three NASCAR truck races run this
season. Busch is hot is all three of NASCAR’s elite divisions. This
past weekend he won Friday night, led the most laps Saturday before
retiring with a chassis problem, and led the most laps Sunday while
taking the win! If he didn't have the chassis problem late in the
Nationwide race Saturday, Kyle Busch would be leading all three of
NASCAR’S top series championship point standings. He currently leads
the Sprint Cup and Truck Series standings.
In 2007 Kyle blistered the
speedway in 11.400 seconds and was the fastest qualifier among the
45 late model entries. Once the race started he drove straight to
the front in dominating fashion only to have cut tires sideline him.
Busch started 12th (inverted fastest 12) and used the outside lane
to rocket his way from his twelfth starting position to fifth by lap
four, Busch quickly tracked down Brad Mueller and worked his way by
to take the lead on lap 24 only to have his tire issues begin a few
laps later. “This thing was just bad fast, but you’ve got to
finish,” Busch continued. “I got the lead and I was running 70%.” If
Busch can keep the tires on the car this year he should be very
tough to beat.........but we'll see.
For a chance to meet Kyle Busch, Matt Kenseth and other Stars a
limited number of VIP Meet and Greet Hospitality tickets are
available. This year Slinger Speedway has added a Pit Pass to VIP
Hospitality tickets that also allow lucky fans the opportunity to
get an autograph and attend a Q&A session. Food, Drink and a general
admission ticket to the race will be included with the VIP Ticket.
