Ladies and gentlemen, the competition may be tightening up in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
Kyle Busch told media members at Dover on Tuesday night that he plans on cutting back on his Nationwide schedule in 2010, saying he hopes the team can get his schedule down to as little as 22 races.
Though Busch would not come out with a specific reason as to why he plans on cutting back, a few hints were given. He mentioned that maybe racing in the Nationwide Series has “taken a little bit away from the Cup effort.” He also said that he only wanted to race companion events, and not “fly all over the place.”
Whatever the reason may be, it would be a relief to both the fans and the drivers of the NASCAR Nationwide Series to see a few Kyle Busch-free races next year. Maybe now somebody else will have a chance to win a few Nationwide races next season.
