At the beginning of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series defending regular season champion Kyle Busch was the most impressive driver. Rowdy posted three wins in his first eight races. But since those strong betting on NASCAR results Busch has slowed down. At least by his standards. Consider that he has finishes of eighth, tenth, and tenth in his last three starts. Most drivers would kill for such results but Rowdy wants to win every race. That is why he is the most loved and hated driver in all of MENCS. Saturday he’ll run at one of his best tracks.
