|Another guy who dominated lower series,|
its just that nobody hated him.
Fresh off his visit to victory lane tonight in the Go Bowling 400, Kyle Busch dropped a bombshell to the assembled media—he is officially retiring from racing in the Xfinity and Truck Series, effective immediately.
“It’s been a great run in the support series, but tonight finally proved it to me—I don’t need to run the race the day before to win in Cup”, Busch said in the post-race media center briefing. “All the learning, all the testing for different lines, all the honing my skills against the likes of Norm Benning and Mike Harmon, turns out its all unnecessary—I’m good enough on my own!”
Busch didn’t say who would be running his Xfinity and Truck Series races for the rest of the season, though it is expected that Joe Gibbs Racing will pull Drew Herring out of biostasis at least for the road course events.
“I’ll have all sorts of free time now”, Busch continued. “Finally I can work on my flag-catching skills, never really had the time to do that before. And hey—I won’t have to blow off post-race interviews anymore—well, unless things don’t go my way.”
Denny Hamlin then showed up in the media center and was penalized by Nascar for too fast entering.
