"The guys gave me a deep starting spot on the preparation. It was decent anyway," said Kyle, who swept both Cup road races two years ago and also won the Nationwide race in Mexico to set a NASCAR record for most road wins in a season. "I felt like I was losing a little bit there from where I was in 2008. But overall, I passed a lot of cars."
Busch's younger brother, Kyle, has said he'll make an attempt if he ever wins a Sprint Cup championship.
