Kyle Busch to Enter Kansas Cup Event
- May 17, 2004
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (May 17, 2004) - Kyle Busch will attempt to qualify for the Oct. 10 Banquet 400 at Kansas Speedway, adding a sixth points-paying race to his 2004 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series schedule in the No. 84 CARQUEST Chevrolets.
In another change to Busch’s calendar, Hendrick Motorsports has elected to not field the No. 84 entry in the May 22 NASCAR NEXTEL All-Star Challenge at Lowe’s Motor Speedway.
Instead, the 19-year-old Busch will remain in Nazareth, Pa., to concentrate on the May 23 NASCAR Busch Series event at Nazareth Speedway. The Las Vegas native is currently first in the Busch Series championship standings after 11 of 34 races.
Busch started 18th and finished 41st at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in his first-ever NEXTEL Cup start on March 7. He will next enter a Cup-level event at Lowe’s Motor Speedway on May 30.
