300 Cup starts for Kyle Busch  
Kyle Busch
At just 27 years of age, it's difficult to believe Kyle Busch is considered by many to be a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series veteran. But as the Sprint Cup competitors head to Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth this Saturday night for the NRA 500, the driver of the # 18 Interstate Batteries Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing is showing veteran-like numbers to prove it, especially since the Texas start will be his 300th in NASCAR's top series. Along with his number of starts, the number in the career wins column also serves to belie Busch's age.

His 25th Sprint Cup win three weekends ago at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif. - ties him with JGR teammate Matt Kenseth, along with Jim Paschal and Joe Weatherly, for 24th in all-time Sprint Cup victories.

Also with the Fontana win, Busch became just the third driver to score 25 victories in both the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series (25 Sprint Cup, 54 Nationwide). Mark Martin (40 Sprint Cup, 49 Nationwide) and Kenseth (25 Sprint Cup, 26 Nationwide) are the only other drivers to do so. In Busch's 299 previous starts, he's also has notched an impressive 97 top-five finishes and 144 top-10s. Not too shabby for just 300 career starts. Joe Gibbs Racing
