BUSCH HOPES TO CONTINUE DOVER DOMINANCE
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (September 22, 2009) - 333 laps led in the last three races? Yes, that's gaudy, but it's also true in the case of Kyle Busch. In his last three races at Dover International Speedway, Busch has established himself as the "Dover Dominator" in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
Busch hopes that continues this weekend when he looks to repeat as the winner of the Dover 200. He is also looking to overcome a snap of bad luck-in two of the last three Dover races, Busch was involved in accidents while in contention for the race win. This Saturday afternoon, Busch will attempt to bring his NOS Energy Drink Toyota Camry into victory lane unscathed for his second time in Nationwide Series competition at Dover.
Busch currently holds a 201 point lead over rival Carl Edwards in the NASCAR Nationwide Series standings heading into this weekend's event.
Last weekend, Busch won at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series competition. With the win, NHMS became the sixth track that Busch has won at in each of NASCAR's top three divisions (Cup, Nationwide, and Truck). The other tracks include Fontana, Bristol, Chicago, Dover, and Phoenix.

The Dover 200 at Dover International Speedway will air on ESPN2 on Saturday, September 26 at 3 pm EST.
"Dover is a really unique place-from the surface to the banking to the pit road. It's a unique challenge for the teams to go there but it's a place where we've run pretty well in the past even though our results don't show that. Dover is a physical track that tests you in the driver's seat with steep banking and really severe transitions in and out of the corners but it does give you a lot of passing opportunities. There are multiple grooves there and you can find a place to make your car work.
"It should be a really fun race for us. Everything came together for us there last year and we got the win and in order to win again, we'll have to run a similar race. The 60 team (Carl Edwards) has got their act together and the 88 (Brad Keselowski) has been good, so it's important for us to go out and get the best possible performance we can get and hopefully get this NOS Toyota Camry a big win."
