Kyle Busch Tony Stewart Twitter: NASCAR on NBC

This past Sunday, Kyle Busch recorded his sixth win of the season following an impressive performance in the Ganders Outdoors 400 at Pocono Raceway. But, there was another more meaningful number to come as a result of the finish: 49.

It’s the amount of all-time Cup Series wins Rowdy has earned thus far in his career, tying him with Tony Stewart for 13th on the NASCAR win list.

Stewart naturally took note of Busch’s recent accomplishment and took to Twitter to congratulate him on the milestone.

When Busch got word of his place alongside Stewart on the prestigious wins list, he expressed his excitement over the achievement, while also, in typical Rowdy fashion, looking forward to reaching bigger and better milestones.

“That’s awesome,” Kyle Busch said. “And you keep reaching higher up the ladder and you keep reaching milestone drivers, and Tony Stewart is one of the all-time best — and one of the drivers that I was a fan of as well growing up so it’s awesome to be able to tie him.

“There’s many more. We want to keep going.”

Below, you can get a look at where both Stewart and Busch stack up against NASCAR’s winningest drivers. Of course, Busch has a long way to go to catch up to Richard Petty’s untouched wins record. Knowing him, he’ll be trying his damndest to not only reach that number, but surpass it. Even if he has to bump-and-run every NASCAR driver to get there.
