Kyle Busch starts his season off the right way


Daytona may be a few weeks away, but that doesn't mean that Kyle Busch isn't already winning.

Busch easily won the Winter Showdown at Kern Raceway, besting several other NASCAR drivers, including Daniel Hemric, Ty Majeski and Noah Gragson.

"This means the world to me," Busch said on the MAVTV pay-per-view broadcast, and as reported by Short Track Scene. "This is something I'm passionate about. I love short track racing. I love the Super Late Model ranks. We've won everywhere, but I don't think I've won in California in one of these cars, which is cool to do here, because of the competition."


Now Busch -- who Vegas makes as a slight favorite to win the Cup Series championship this season -- can go to Daytona on a winning streak.
