“I joined Joe Gibbs Racing in 2008, and I came here to win …. And win … and win.”
No driver embodies the term “relentless” quite like Kyle Busch. No matter his position on the track, he will do all he can to get to the front. And if he’s already there, he’ll fight hard to extend his lead.
Kyle first took the wheel at age 6, cruising around the cul-de-sac of his family’s Las Vegas neighborhood in a makeshift go-kart. By age 10, he was a full-fledged mechanic and served as crew chief on his older brother’s Dwarf car team. At age 13, he began driving competitively.
Today, Kyle is widely considered one of the best drivers in the sport. His strong personality is purely a product of his win-at-all-costs mentality.

Talent sometimes has the best eye for other talent, and that’s certainly the case with Erik Jones. Discovered by Kyle Busch after an intense and competitive battle they shared during a short-track late model race, Erik joins Team Interstate in a partial Xfinity Series schedule for 2015.
In 2013, Erik became the youngest winner in the history of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series when he won at Phoenix. He was just 17 years, five months and nine days old. In 2014, he won three more races in the truck series, helping Kyle Busch Motorsports secure an Owner’s Championship.
