Busch is looking for the Dover Triple Crown

Kyle Busch can race anything and win. If you doubt that then you have not been following the action at the "Monster Mile, better known as Dover International Speedway.

Over the past 48 hours ?he held off Trevor Bayne, Joey Logano, Matt Kenseth and Chase Elliott to win on Saturday in the ?Buckle Up 200, a ?NASCAR Nationwide Series race. Busch won that race less than 24 hours after his ?victory in the ?Lucas Oil 200? NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on Friday night.

So, if the star of the Joe Gibbs racing team can put his No. 18, ?Toyota in Victory Lane at the??FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks? NASCAR Sprint Cup today then he gets the Dover Triple Crown. The race airs on Fox at 1 pm and the challenge that Busch faces is that he will be starting from the 40th spot on the grid after he had qualifying problems.

Dover is a very tough track to handle under the best of conditions, so starting that far back is an issue. He also has ?to make up ground on Dover multi winners like Jimmie Johnson and Carl Edwards to name a few who has owned the Monster Mile, Busch clearly has his work cut out for him. ?That said no one has raced better at this track this weekend than Busch.

His two wins thus far marked the first time a driver has won both the?Friday?and Saturday spring races at the Monster Mile in the same weekend, and now it gives Busch the opportunity to pick up a weekend sweep if he can take the checkered flag in the June 1 ?Series race.
