Heading into Kentucky Speedway last season, Kurt Busch was still working out the kinks with his new team at Chip Ganassi Racing and was riding a 30-race winless streak that dated back to Bristol in 2018, but all that changed when he grabbed the lead in overtime and took the win. Now the Las Vegas native returns looking to defend his Kentucky win from last season and snap an even longer winless streak that has reached 33 races.
Busch is currently 11th in points, four points behind his brother Kyle in 10th. In 16 starts this season Kurt Busch has collected three top fives, nine top 10s and a pole.
Busch’s win last season was not only first victory for Chip Ganassi Racing at Kentucky Speedway but also the first for Chevrolet. In nine starts at Kentucky, Busch has put up one win (2019), two top fives and six top 10s.
