Kyle Busch: Is Rowdy Going To Own a NASCAR Team of His Own?

Jen PrestonSenior Analyst IMarch 6, 2009

If only we could bottle talent like this. But soon, drivers may get to drive in just as good equipment.

While the 23-year-old superstar called "Rowdy" admits these talks are in their infancy, Kyle Busch doesn't deny that he'd like to eventually buy Billy Ballew Motorsports, who he drives for—and dominates with—in the Camping World Truck Series.

Busch, who has already won a Truck Series event this season, is already sixth in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series points, and will be running full time in the Nationwide Series.

The driver also has counted out leaving NASCAR for Formula One if he wins a title "in the next year or two" and then "coming back by the time I'm 28."

No one can blame the Las Vegas native for dreaming big—he absolutely dominated the circuit last season, winning a combined 21 races in the top three series.

"There might be a day when Billy wants me to take over the operation," Busch said of possible ownership. "We're still in the talking stage about all that, so who knows when that will happen."
