Winless in the 2020 season, the 2019 NASCAR Cup Series Kyle Busch admits that he is frustrated with the lack of practice after the season resumed.
Since NASCAR resumed its Cup Series season on May 17, it has been organizing races without any practice sessions. Still looking for his first win, Kyle Busch says that he could have performed better if the team had more practice. Speaking to Beyond the Flag, the Joe Gibbs Racing’s driver said:
“Absolutely, I know what I’m capable of and what Adam [Stevens] and our team can do. It’s certainly been frustrating and wish we had just a little bit of practice to be able to work out some of the things. But that’s not the case right now. I know everyone is working as hard as they can right now and we’ll keep digging.”

Kyle sits 11th on the NASCAR Cup Series Standings with 477 points.
While the driver of the No.18 Toyota might be having a hard time with no practice sessions, two drivers who have done exceptionally well during the same period are Kevin Harvick and Denny Hamlin, who have four wins each. Kyle attributes these two drives as the best since the season resumption in May.
“Since the season came back in May, Kevin [Harvick] and Denny [Hamlin] certainly have been running the best. We’ve had some other guys mix in here or there, but those two teams have really stood out. There’s a lot of season left and things change as far as what teams and organizations competing for wins, so there’s way to much racing left to be able to predict what the end of the season is going to look like.”
