White Out in Phoenix!
The frigid winter of ’11 has brought white-out conditions around the country (plus record battery sales). Another white-out is forecast for the desert near Phoenix. It’s not a freak snow storm but it is freakishly talented Kyle Busch who will take the white-hot No.18 Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry on its maiden NASCAR Nationwide voyage Saturday afternoon at the Phoenix International Raceway.
If Kyle looks at home in the redesigned Interstate Batteries ride in Phoenix, it’s because he has been in victory lane here multiple times in his career. That record includes the 2008 Nationwide win in Interstate colors! All told, in 11 Nationwide Series starts at Phoenix, Busch has been unstoppable as he has tallied three wins (November 2007, April 2008 and April 2010), three poles (November 2004, April 2007, April 2008) and eight top-10 finishes.
So tune in or set your DVR this Saturday at 4 p.m. CST for the Bashas’ Supermarkets 200 on ESPN2. You may see more history being made by TEAM INTERSTATE’s Kyle Busch.
