Kyle Busch is on a roll as of late. After a winless streak of 36 races, Busch broke through with two wins in the last four races. The win to break the losing streak was at at Pocono, then he won again at Bristol. At Bristol especially, he couldn’t be beat, as he swept the entire weekend getting three wins in four days. After a historically successful weekend, Busch reflected on the darker times when it seemed he couldn’t get a win for anything.
“We’ve had really strong cars and had really good opportunities to win a lot of races this year. We just haven’t gotten it, for whatever reason,” Busch said via Autosport.com.
“[…] Luck was probably the biggest thing we were missing out on. It’s just starting to turn around a little bit. Things are going a little bit better in our direction. Some of those lucky breaks are kind of floating our way rather than somebody else’s way. Take them when you can get them is my mentality.”
Busch said that winning relieves a lot of the pressure, but even though he has enjoyed consistent success throughout his career, those near misses and winless stretches still get to him.
“It’s so frustrating, though, for this season to be as fast [and] as competitive as we’ve been, the opportunities that were there for us to be able to score the victories, and to not get those. It just makes you really literally want to pull all your hair out.” He said.
Busch may have gotten a lot of boo’s after sweeping Bristol, but no one can say he doesn’t cherish every single win.
