Kyle Busch's doubleheader Saturday proved to be historic. By 10:30 p.m. Busch had won twice in the same day in two of NASCAR's top series—a feat never accomplished in 61 years of racing.
Busch first won the Camping World Truck Series' San Bernardino County 200—not just winning the race, but leading all but five laps and being totally dominant.
He drove the No. 51 Miccosukee Resort/Tundra Toyota for owner Billy Ballew and took over the points lead in the series after a second-place finish at Daytona last week.
After his Victory Lane celebration, Busch jogged to his Sprint Cup car to make Happy Hour final practice in preparation for the Auto Club 500 on Sunday.
After all of this, Busch then jumped aboard his Z-Line Designs Toyota for owner J.D. Gibbs in the Stater Bros. 300. Busch dominated again—leading 143 of the 150 laps in the Nationwide Series event.
What was really shocking is that I heard plenty of fans cheering for "Rowdy" Busch—usually not a fan favorite. I also heard Busch thank the fans and he had nothing negative to say in the post-race interviews—I was shocked!
Maybe, just maybe, "Rowdy" has had an attitude adjustment. But why?
Will Busch make more history as he goes for three in a row? Could he win three NASCAR races in two days and sweep every event at Auto Club Speedway?
Did I mention "Rowdy" leads the points in both the Camping World Trucks and the Nationwide Series?
