American racecar driver Kyle Busch was born on May 2, 1985, in Las Vegas, Nev. At age 6, he had his first driving lesson in a makeshift go-kart, driving around his cul-de-sac. He grew up learning to build and repair race cars. By 10, he was a full-fledged mechanic and served as crew chief of his older brother Kurt's dwarf car team. He officially began his driving career in 1998 at age 13. From 1999 to 2001, he earned more than 65 wins in legends car racing including two track championships at Las Vegas Motor Speedway's "Bullring," before moving to late models, where he had 10 wins at the Bullring in 2001. At 16, he began competing in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series. He debuted at Indianapolis Raceway Park in ninth place. In 2001, he was ejected from the California Speedway because people under 18 were prohibited from participating in events sponsored by tobacco companies. After this incident, NASCAR imposed a minimum age of 18 starting in 2002 to prevent future incidents from happening again. That prompted him to switch from NASCAR to the American Speed Association. He returned to NASCAR at 18, after graduating high school a year early. His first full-time season began in 2004. He won the Rookie of the Year award in the series. He won five races that year, making him the record holder of most races won by a driver in his rookie season. He went on to win the 2005 NEXTEL Cup Rookie of the Year award. He is the youngest pole sitter in NEXTEL Cup history after winning the pole for the 2005 Auto Club 500. He returned to the Craftsman Truck Series in 2005, winning his first career truck series race at Lowe's Motor Speedway, becoming the youngest driver to in a Truck Series race. Busch is the youngest driver to make the NASCAR NEXTEL Chase for the Cup. He was the first NASCAR NEXTEL Cup driver to win in NASCAR's Car of Tomorrow at the 2007 Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway. He scored Hendrick Motorsports their 200th NASCAR win and Chevrolet's 600th NASCAR win. In 2008, he took the lead in points for the first time in his career. That same year, Carl Edwards tapped Busch's rear bumper to take the lead at Bristol Motor Speedway. After the race, Busch pulled up alongside to bump into Edwards repeated, who responded by spinning out Busch. The following week, NASCAR placed both of them on probation. Busch's hopes for his first championship were destroyed after two consecutive did not finishes, wiping out his 20-point lead and dropping him to 12th place. He finished the season in 10th. He made NASCAR history when he won two NASCAR touring series races in the same day – San Bernardino County 200 in the afternoon and the Stater Brothers 300 in the evening. In 2009, he won both the nationwide series finale and his first NASCAR championship, becoming the first driver since Sam Ard in 1983 to win the both in the same year. In 2010, he became the first driver in NASCAR history to win all three NASCAR tour events in one weekend. « Show less
