Kyle Busch acknowledged that NASCAR has been on his radar for quite some time, and although he was denied an entry early in his career when preparing spaceship contracts and commitments, he’s still in it for the Indy 500. He went on to say that he’s not that committed to Indy at the moment, adding that he’s happy for his old friend and foe Jimmie Johnson, who will be running this year’s race. He went on to say that he wasn’t surprised Jimmie Johnson was recording the timesheets at the Brickyard as he had always been fast in stock cars as well as everything else.

Yeah, I mean, you know, it’s certainly on my radar. The year I sold it and signed it and sponsorship was there and all that, I was told no. And then since then I haven’t necessarily tried to sell sponsorships, but there was an easy verbal yes answer. And obviously things have changed so I don’t have that anymore these days but overall I’m excited to be able to watch old pal Jimmie Johnson and cheer him on going out there and running good and doing good,‘ said Kyle Bush.

He’s always been quick on stock cars and everything else, so it’s no surprise to see him on the charts this time around. And I look forward to seeing him go next Sundayadded Kyle Busch.

Kyle Busch said Team Penske driver Ryan Blaney, along with some Toyota drivers, tested the next-gen car in Texas last year and was able to set some good lap times, despite the Toyota’s early retirement. He went on to say that while it might feel like they’re a little behind at 1.5-mile distances, their recent runs at such distances show otherwise. Kyle Busch claimed that he believes they got a strong and fast car in Sunday’s win as well.

I don’t know, at the beginning of the year there was a test here, a tire test and stuff like that. I think (Ryan) Blaney was here and he was really fast. Unfortunately, our Toyota squad crashed early, so we didn’t get a lot of data‘ said Kyle Bush.

So we might be a little behind on the eight, but the last mile and a half this year would argue otherwise. So we’d like to think that we’re going to get out of here and be fast and have good strong cars to go out here and try to win a million dollars. Kyle Busch added.
