Busch vs. Busch: Michigan

Kyle Busch

Trucks: Kyle Busch took back the wheel of his truck this weekend at Michigan. He was sixth in practice and started eighth. After leading five times for a total 25 laps, he finished third to Aric Almirola. This is Busch's fifth top 10 in fives races at Michigan International Speedway and he leaves MIS 13th in points, two spots up from last week.

Nationwide: This weekend the Nationwide series was in Kentucky. Brad Coleman drove Busch's No. 18, qualifying second, finishing 13th and leading one time for two laps.

Cup: Busch's Cup weekend can be summed up in one word: frustrating. Finishing fourth, 10th and 32nd in practices, he had to start in the rear of the pack after qualifying 15th for an engine change. After making his way up to fourth by lap 140, he wound up on pit road with damage to the spoiler and finished the race in 20th. Busch still remains second in points, 22 points behind leader Kevin Harvick.
