2012 was one of Kyle Busch’s most miserable season to date in his young career. With a contract extension and some pressure off of his shoulders from his Kyle Busch Motorsports team, 2013 could be a break out season for Rowdy Busch.
Kyle Busch will return to the #18 Joe Gibbs Camry after signing a new multi-year agreement. That agreement also puts him back in the Joe Gibbs staple in the Nationwide Series, where Gibbs takes over the #54 previously owned by Busch. This agreement keeps Busch at Joe Gibbs Racing through the 2017 season.
Dave Rogers again will lead the pit crew from atop of the #18 pit box.
M&Ms, Snickers, DoubleMint, and Interstate Batteries all return to sponsor Busch in his Sprint Cup Series effort this season.
In efforts to get back into the Sprint Cup Chase for the Cup, Busch hopes to mark some milestones off his list. Including tracks he hasn’t won at such as Martinsville, Texas, Charlotte, Kansas, Pocono, Indianapolis and Homestead-Miami.
Another factor into Busch’s 2013 success is his love for the Generation-6 car. Busch was a very open and public critic of the Car of Tomorrow, but has said that he is a huge fan of NASCAR’s new sixth generation Sprint Cup Series car.
