Continuing the momentum from his 2015 championship and breaking a string of bad luck at Kansas, Kyle Busch wheeled his No. 18 to Victory Lane for the third time this season, earning his first career win in the Go Bowling 400 at Kansas Speedway. With the win, Busch now needs victories at just Pocono and Charlotte to have won at every active track in the circuit.
The Fraternal Order of The Go Fast
Once again nobody selected the race winner and therefore this award goes vacant this week!
The Movers and Shakers

Straight From The Crapper
The news from this section of the report involves just one player! With a microscopic one (1) point scored this week Cole The On Demand Baseball Player wins uncontested “The Crappiest Pick of The Week” award. Additionally, with that subpar performance The On Demand Baseball Player plumetted back into being solely in charge of “The Outhouse Award” this week!
Next week NASCAR travels to the state of Delaware to race at “The Monster Mile” at Dover.
Well there is only one race left in this segment and the top five positionsl are really still up for grabs. There are only 16 points that separate the top seven players and this last race at Dover will have a lot of drama associated with its outcome. The players that end up in the money, the top five scorers, may need “a little help from their firends” to keep them up on the podium!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
