Records are set only to be broken, it was not if but when would Kyle Busch reached the magic number of 200 victories set by King Richard Petty. The debate will go on as to how the number 200 is so magical as when Petty reached it or Busch.

Petty reached the milestone running only the top series of NASCAR. Busch has accumulated 200 victories running in the top three series of NASCAR.

Busch by the numbers:
53 victories in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series
94 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series
53 in the NASCAR Monster Cup Series

Has Busch already set another goal to be broken, ” I still have maybe 10 good years in the sport who knows, 5 wins a year is possible” It was 2005 when Busch captured his first Cup Series win in Fontana Calif.

Crew Chief, Adam Stevens

Crew Chief # 18 Adam Stevens
helped put the milestone in perspective.“Two hundred is just another number,” Stevens said. “He was going to get there — it was inevitable. But it’s an honor to be the guy on the pit box when he does it.”
