NASCAR: What Can Kyle Busch Do from 30th at Infineon?

Matthew JeffrayCorrespondent IJune 21, 2008

Well, Kyle had a very odd qualifying yesterday afternoon as he could have a second crack at the whip after NASCAR officials realized they did not take off the tape off the hood of the Joe Gibbs car for his first run.

So Kyle went for a second chance and only ended up with a 30th starting place. History states that wining from that position is highly unlikely, but Juan Pablo Montoya came from 32nd last season at Sonoma to win on fuel mileage.

So can he make a top five finish to help his championship, or will the young driver from Las Vegas get hot headed trying to make up so many positions?

If he has a good strategy, I’m sure he will come into contention later in the race. It is a long race at 110 laps, so let’s wait and see.

How do you think he will fare in tomorrow’s race?
