Is Kyle Busch Having THAT Season?

Good morning, racing campers! You'll recall last week, this observer said that 200 wins by Kyle Busch in the combination of Cup, Xfinity and Trucks wasn't the same as Richard Petty's 200 Cup wins. You may also recall yours truly saying he hasn't yet had that one dominating, signature season, a la Petty in '67, or Jeff Gordon in '98.

It happened in a big way for Kevin Harvick, it happened for Clint Bowyer, it happened for Aric Almirola, and Daniel Suarez hopes it will be happening for him. Suarez is the latest addition to the team, succeeding Kurt Busch. Not unlike Almirola, one can't help but think that Joe Gibbs Racing may have given up on him too soon.

While they came up short, Kyle Busch and new JGR driver Martin Truex Jr. represented two-thirds of the "Big Three" in 2018. It doesn't end there for Joe Gibbs Racing, perhaps the deepest te ...
