Kyle Busch reflects on the 2017 season
Kyle Busch finished 2nd in the NASCAR Cup Series standings. He finished 2nd at Homestead-Miami Speedway to Martin Truex Jr. But, that was really the theme of the entire season.
Truex Jr picked up 8 wins in the 2017 season. Including the win at Homestead-Miami Speedway with which he clamed the Monster Energy Cup.
“It seemed like the 78 bunch was ready to go a lot quicker than we were,” Kyle Busch recently told NASCAR.com. “They were really fast early in the season. They won Las Vegas, they were really quick at California. … It took us probably until about May or June (to catch up).”
“There were races,” Busch said. “I mean we should have won Phoenix (where he finished third) back in March, but there were times were just kind of off and kind of slow. And our ‘off’ was fourth or fifth place.”
