Kyle Busch Admits to Pressure After Surprising Start to NASCAR Season

Share Via

Kyle Busch has had a slow start to his 2021 season so far. However, he is also aware that the year 2021 has been a bit unpredictable, as evidenced by four different winners. The JGR driver is yet to win a race this season, not including his Busch Clash triumph.

Busch’s form is definitely improving, as he finished 10th fastest in Homestead-Miami. He also followed it up with a decent  third-place finish at his home track at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, as he hopes to keep up the momentum.

The 35-y-o NO.18 driver even spoke about how many other teams are also under a bit of pressure. As it turns out, Kyle Busch and his Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) team are not the only ones suffering from a rough start to their campaign.

Busch said: “It’s definitely putting pressure on some of the other teams, some of the teams that have had a rough start like ourselves first few races being terrible.”

“I mean, yeah, it’s pretty interesting how this season’s laid out so far. Everybody is a different winner. It’s pretty cool for parity and for separation. I think that even adds to another different winner from last year. I think that’s 14 of 16 races or something like that.It’s kind of crazy to see all that going on.

According to the 2015 and 2019 Cup Series champion, he and his JGR outfit had to dig themselves out of a massive hole.
Kyle Busch is often forced to start the race near the back which is not helping matters. This ultimately costs the team valuable points during the first and second stages of the race.
