Kyle Busch: 'How You Race is How You Get Raced'

He graduated from Ithaca College in 2006 with a degree in journalism. He also was a member of the IC Comedy Club and figures about half of the jokes he makes in his column are actually amusing.

After a strong start in Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Martin Truex Jr. found himself fighting back at the end to post a fourth-place finish. "And then the crew chief is like, 'He'll be gone by the time you get there.' And I initially thought that and then they were still hanging left-side tires and I was like, 'Oh no, oh no".

At the end of the second stage Sunday, Chase Elliott tracked down reigning Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion Martin Truex Jr. and passed him for the lead. "They gained us all those spots on pit road to get us out front to get us in that position to have a shot to go for the win".

Busch is still looking for his first win of the year. Let's count them up!

"When Denny Hamlin comes to (New Hampshire) and runs like he ran (Sunday), you look at him and say 'What's the problem?' " Kyle Petty said Monday on NASCAR America. "We were playing Go Fish and Candy Land in the bus [during the rain delay], and I don't even like losing at that to my 5-year-old and my 4-year-old". This hasn't quite turned into a full-blown feud between Harvick and second-place finisher Kyle Busch, but it has all the potential to the next time these drivers hit the track, which their fans are likely pushing for. But Harvick (who didn't win in 2008, by the way), doesn't want to see his season go exactly like Busch's 2008.

The Big Three were threatened in a race delayed by rain for more than three hours by Aric Almirola, who replaced Danica Patrick in the No. 10 Ford, for a portion of the race.

However, the fact that he just expected Harvick to race him clean and fair is interesting seeing as how Busch literally won a race just over three weeks ago by spinning out the leader in the penultimate turn on the final lap of the race.

Before that, the previous three instances all belonged to Dale Earnhardt, in his excellent 1987, 1990 and 1993 seasons. Stewart-Haas has 791 owner points, 53 behind Joe Gibbs Racing.

"To be able to lead that many laps..."

Turkey seeks closer cooperation with BRICS countries
The 10th BRICS summit, hosted by South Africa in the financial capital Johannesburg , starts on Wednesday and lasts through Friday.

Kyle Busch led the race for 36 laps and had Harvick in his rearview mirror the whole time. Truex eventually took the lead from Stenhouse after about 10 laps under green.

To compare, the Cup Series all-time wins leader, Richard Petty, had eight such wins.

But it was a banner weekend for SHR: Kurt Busch won the pole and finished eighth; and Harvick and Almirola placed in the top five.

Busch also didn't get a good restart late in the race. And it's not often that a 500 victor has to wait that long to win another race.

The good news? He could be like Harvick, who didn't win again for 115 races after winning it in 2007 but then rediscovered his mojo.

Then there's Aric Almirola, who had the self-described best auto in Sunday's race.

Leah Pritchett won in Top Fuel for her second victory of the season and seventh overall.

That trails only a 226-race slump by Bill Elliott from 1994-2001 and a 218-race stretch by Truex from 2007-13.
