Milestone Start at Home Track
CONCORD, NC (Sept. 22, 2021) – NASCAR Cup Series (NCS) veteran competitor Kurt Busch will make career start No. 750 this Sunday Sept. 26 at his hometown track, Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS). Busch is also the defending race winner of this weekend’s South Point 400 at LVMS.
The Las Vegas-native assumed sole possession of 12th on the all-time NCS career starts list last weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway with career start 749, surpassing Tennessee-native Sterling Marlin, who had 748 NCS career starts to his credit.
Busch’s versatile driving talent has helped him to score poles and race victories on every type of track on which the NCS competes (superspeedway, intermediate, short-track and road course). The 43-year-old driver has also won at least one race in 18 of his 22 years of NCS competition, including at least one win in the last eight consecutive seasons.
