Rumor: 2021 Busch’s last year in Xfinity Series?

Kyle Busch won his 100th Xfinity Series race Saturday at Nashville Superspeedway. He previously has said on a number of occasions he would retire from Xfinity after reaching 100 wins.

Busch is scheduled to drive in just five Xfinity races this season.

In the post-race press conference, Busch said he doesn’t think Joe Gibbs Racing has sold any Xfinity race sponsorship yet for him in 2022 and so this year could be his last running his allowed five events a season.

“Why should I return? Did you hear the crowd? Nobody likes me,” Busch said.

“I get beat up, whether it is the fans or (media), like ‘Why am I doing it? What am I doing it for? Why am I beating on the little guys?

“I love winning. If I can’t win on the Cup side, hell, I may quit that and come back and run Xfinity full time.”
