Kurt Busch Says Marco Andretti Should Give Daytona a Try, Andretti Says “Sign Me Up”

Leeds, Ala – We may be in NASCAR country this weekend for the annual Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama, but that in turn is a great bonus for some comments made on Friday morning. The Barber Motorsports Park, the site of this weekend’s Verizon IndyCar Series race, is just 45 minutes west of the Talladega Superspeedway. But, a NASCAR driver, most notably this year’s Daytona 500 champion, as well as a driver who finished sixth in the 2014 Indianapolis 500, made some interesting comments 363 miles to the northeast of…

Daytona 500 Champ Kurt Busch Has Been Quietly Good at Phoenix

2017 has been about as good of start to a NASCAR season that Kurt Busch has ever had. He won the season opening race in the Daytona 500 on Feb. 26, then backed that up with a seventh place effort in the second race of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season at Atlanta.
