NOT – Kyle Busch

Kyle Busch has run into a touch of bad luck in two of his last three races. Busch ran outside of the top-40 at Michigan which is his second finish like that in the past three weeks. While the finishes may not be the fault of his own; this is clearly not the way that Busch and the No. 18 team want to be running. Luckily for Busch, he already has a win under his belt from earlier in the year. That win will most likely ensure Busch a spot in the chase. Moving forward Busch and the No. 18 crew need to try to win a few more races as they currently trail the likes of Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano in that category.
