Las Vegas native Kyle Busch – also known as Rowdy – continued his winning ways in the Gander RV and Outdoors Truck Series on February 21.
Busch, like all NASCAR Cup Series regulars with five or more years of experience, are limited to just five races each season in the Truck Series and five races in the Xfinity Series. Except over the past couple of years, Busch has been making the most out of his opportunities.
Last season, Kyle Busch won the race at all five of his Truck Series starts and when he got behind the wheel for the Strat 200 race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, he picked up where he left off with a win of the race.
Busch’s winning ways has drawn quite a bit of attention on social media. Fellow NASCAR Cup Series driver Kevin Harvick has issued a challenge – the Rowdy Challenge – where he will give $50,000 to any fellow NASCAR Cup Series driver who can beat Kyle Busch and win in a Truck Series race.
Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis is also getting in on the fun and has pledged to match Harvick’s $50,000 for a total of $100,000 to any NASCAR Cup Series driver that can beat Rowdy to the checkered flag in a Truck Series race.
Busch owns his own Truck Series team of three trucks and picks one of them when he runs a Truck Series race.
The current NASCAR Cup Series champion holds the record for the most Truck Series wins with 57 and has a total career win list of over 200 races in the Truck, Xfinity, and NASCAR Cup Series.
