AVONDALE, Ariz. — Kyle Busch has now won at least one Cup Series race in each of the last 15 seasons.

Across the top-three touring series, Busch has amassed 199 total wins and leads the Truck Series (53) and Xfinity Series (94) on the all-time wins lists.
“I’ve been fortunate to be with a lot of great people, a lot of great sponsors, those that stick around me like Joe Gibbs, M&M Skittles, Snickers, Interstate Batteries that has always been behind me is what it’s all about for me,” Busch said in Victory Lane.
“To work with my guys, take them to Victory Lane is what it’s all about.”
Busch has totaled 52 wins in NASCAR’s premier series, good for 11th all-time on the Cup Series wins list.
