Racing Weekly: Kyle Busch resurgence in Sprint Cup in 2013

Last year Kyle Busch found victory lane just once on his way to a 13th place finish in the Sprint Cup standings, but this year, Kyle is back and ready to battle for a title.
This past weekend deep in the heart of Texas, Kyle swept the events on the track winning the Nationwide and Sprint Cup races. For Busch, it's his second win of the season and continues his resurgence after missing the chase last season.
Kyle Busch says, "It feels good, especially, Dave just mentioned this is my 300th start. So not a bad way to celebrate it, of course, sitting on the pole with a new track record and going to victory lane."
It was a surprise to many that Busch missed the chase last year, but this offseason his crew at Joe Gibbs Racing recommitted themselves to not only making the chase, but running for a Sprint Cup title.
Busch says, "I say that the expense that Joe put in out of his own pocket this off-season to build us some really cool cars, we appreciate. If it was for getting two wins last year, we would have made the Chase. That's what our year is all about. You have to be able to execute through the first 26 and get yourself a playoff spot and be able to go battle with the rest of the guys to be able to win a championship.
This week the drivers head to the heartland as they head to Kansas.
