Edelbrock was proud to be a part of NASCAR history this last weekend when Kyle Busch achieved the first Triple Crown in NASCAR history at Bristol Motor Speedway! Never before has a driver won all of the NASCAR national touring events at the same track in a single week.
It all started on Wednesday night when Kyle Busch won the Camping World Truck Series O’Reilly 200. After starting the evening at the rear of the field because of a pre-race adjustment, Kyle fought his way to the front through several caution flags to take the checkered flag. Kyle Busch Motorsports’ Toyota Tundra is powered by a Triad Racing Technologies engine mated with an Edelbrock #2879 intake manifold.
He continued his streak with his 10th Nationwide Series race victory of the year, winning Friday night’s Food City 250. This was Kyle’s 40th win in the series and tied him with Sam Ard for the most single-season victories.
Busch then proceeded to complete his history-making trifecta with a victory in Saturday’s Sprint Cup Series Irwin Tools Night Race. Kyle worked hard to fight off strong challenges by David Reutimann and Jamie McMurray in order to keep his lead. Joe Gibbs Racing relies on the Edelbrock Victor Series #2876 intake manifold to power Kyle Busch’s Toyota Camry.
