You either love the Busch brothers or you hate them. There's no in-between.
Since Kurt came into the Sprint Cup series in 2000 and younger bro Kyle followed him in 2004, few other drivers have been as polarizing and both loved and hated by NASCAR fandom as the Las Vegas natives.
Let's face it, both brothers had significantly off years in 2012 for a number of different reasons. And ironically, it was the first time in their respective careers that the Busch family did not have a representative in the Chase.
But 2013 will be a far different season for KuBu and KyBu, unofficial nicknames that fans or haters like to refer to them as.
Given the humble pie both brothers had to eat in 2012—Kyle finished 13th and Kurt 25th—we expect them to have seasons in 2013 that will be 180 degrees different, and that means for the better.
Let's take a look at why both Busch boys will not only once again make the Chase in 2013, but also how they potentially could be significant factors in how the season and championship play out.
