Kurt Busch eager to try ‘The Double’ again
Question of the Day
“I would love to do it again,” Busch said Sunday night.
Busch was in an upbeat mood as he stood next to his broken down, still simmering No. 41 Chevy outside of his hauler. An engine failure on lap 271 of the 400-lap race ended Busch’s night early at the Coca-Cola 600.
Still, he refused to let it bring him down.
“All in all, I’m very satisfied,” Busch said. “I gave it my all. I trained very hard. I had a lot of people helping out. Thanks to Gene Haas, Tony Stewart, Michael Andretti and this whole group. Everyone worked hard on both sides. … I’m still really in awe of how well we ran at Indy,”
Busch said his feet and hands were sore.
But other than that he felt well and was planning to get a good night’s sleep and savor what was a long, but fun day.
“Today is a memory I’ll have forever,” Busch said. “Overall, I can stand here with a smile knowing I gave it my all for six months trying to get to this point.”
The NASCAR veteran was trying to become the second driver to complete the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600 in a single day - a grueling, 1,100-mile slog that included an airplane ride from Indiana to North Carolina.
He successfully completed the Indianapolis 500 earlier Sunday, then darted to the second race. The frenetic schedule didn’t faze him. He even hinted it might not be his only shot at the back-to-back races.
