— Kyle Busch can't be beat at Bristol Motor Speedway. Busch beat Carl Edwards and Jimmie Johnson off pit road after the final stops He's now won five Cup races at Bristol , which ties him with older- brother Kurt in NASCAR's top series, and has 11 victories spanning the three national series.

BRISTOL, Tenn. – When it comes to piling up victories in NASCAR’s top series at Bristol Motor Speedway among active drivers, no one tops the Busch brothers.

NASCAR All-Star race going to be 'unbelievably competitive'

  NASCAR All-Star race going to be 'unbelievably competitive' If you haven't bought a ticket for the All-Star Race yet, you might want to. I think it was best said by Kurt Busch: “A clean format.

Busch has now won three consecutive Nationwide Series races at Bristol since last March, when he and Larson also went 1-2 to the finish. Of his 16 national wins at Bristol , five are in the Sprint Cup Series, seven are Nationwide and four are in the Truck Series. "I definitely like coming to Bristol

For now, they can’t even top each other.

Kurt Busch and Kyle Busch each have five wins at the .526-mile short track, more than any other active driver in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.

But while that means they bear close watching in this Sunday’s Food City 500 (live on FOX at 2 p.m. ET), it doesn’t mean either is a lock to get to Victory Lane for what would be the sixth time. Kurt’s last win at BMS came in the spring of 2006, when he completed a remarkable stretch of five wins over nine race starts.

“It’s definitely gotten tougher with the amount of options there are with the low lane, the high lane, the way that the tires have changed,” Kurt Busch said.

Kyle’s first win came in 2007 and his last came in the spring of 2011 – when he also completed a stretch of five wins over nine starts.

Although it's NASCAR's first of just two weekends off this season, it's also only April, so we're nowhere near the end - or even the halfway point - of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series schedule. But the first races of 2017 have not disappointed.

Family is family but racing is racing and Kurt Busch left no doubt what he would have done to eventual race winner and younger brother Kyle Busch if given the chance in the final few laps of the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Race Director David Hoots angry at spotters of #42 & #15 for driving through crash scene instead of driving up per NASCAR's command.

“I do remember watching when I was a kid – I wasn’t here (racing in the series) yet – watching Kurt win his first race here at Bristol and then having the epic battle with Jimmy Spencer,” said Kyle, who is seven years younger than Kurt. “That was a lot of fun to watch and see how Kurt was able to get his first win here.”

Even though it’s been more than a decade since Kurt Busch won at BMS, it’s not like he hasn’t contended. He finished third in the spring race last year – and was leading in the Night Race last August when he spun out after getting overaggressive in an area of the track where VHT adhesive had been applied.

“I tried to hook the VHT a little too aggressive on the bottom lane on one of the later restarts around Lap 400 and actually spun out while leading,” Kurt said. “I felt pretty low after that moment. That’s a thing that you have to learn from and adjust to and come back the next time around and apply a strategy that will help us get to Victory Lane.”

Kyle Busch , 2nd, and Brad Keselowski, 3rd, talk about their 500 laps in the Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway, including the their 30-lap battle as

Both brothers say that the concrete track at Bristol has changed so much over the years – with it being repaved once and reconfigured twice since 2007 – that what they did in the past hardly matters.

“Every time we come here it seems like there’s something changing,” Kyle Busch said. “With the bottom ‘grip strip’ let’s call it, it certainly makes for a unique race track – more unique than it was already.”

“When they first re-concreted this race track and did a new layout to it (in 2007), making it more of a bowl-type to where you can run all over the race track, I was a huge fan of that,” Kyle explained. “You could race and race cleanly and not have to knock people out of the way and you could run three-wide through the corners or two-wide most all the way around the race track.

“That’s boring apparently so they changed it again and ground the outside groove and that really through me and my team for a loop. We were never really able to find something that we could work with up there and get it to work the way that we needed it to win races here.”

He’s hoping that changes in this Sunday’s Food City 500. If Friday’s lone practice is any indication, he will be a contender. Kyle Busch was second-fastest in his No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota with a top lap of 127.090 miles per hour, trailing only the No. 77 Toyota of Erik Jones.

NASCAR driver adds decal to help teen score free chicken nuggets

  NASCAR driver adds decal to help teen score free chicken nuggets Carter Wilkerson's quest for free Wendy's chicken nuggets is getting a huge boost from NASCAR driver Michael McDowell. The 16-year-old Wilkerson from Reno, Nev., was initially joking when he asked the restaurant chain how many retweets he would need for a year's supply of nuggets, but is now determined to reach the fast-food chain's outrageous goal of 18 million.

But Busch , along with older brother Kurt, opted to stay out, along with Daniel Suarez and Paul Menard to restart first through fourth when the field went back to green with just 14 laps remaining. “It’s pretty awesome to be able to snooker those guys, get our win today here at Bristol ,” the younger Busch said.

Kurt Busch turned the 12th-fastest lap in his No. 41 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford at 126.170 mph. He said he knows he needs to run a different style of race Sunday than the ones he used to employ to win here earlier in his career.

“The races that I won had a nice, consistent pattern,” Kurt Busch said. “It was to be a bulldog on the bottom lane, move guys out of the way, and let the rough edges drag.

“The new Bristol and where we are now it’s a little bit more finesse and you have to find the lane that works the best to be able to get by the guy that’s already in the best lane. You can’t necessarily just move him because we’re all on that ragged edge … You’re right on the edge of slipping already, so you’re trying to get to the guy and move him and yet if you do one little extra step, you’re going to slide up into the fence. It’s such a large consequence when that happens, so it’s just a different way of going about it and I haven’t quite mastered it like I did before.”
