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.

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.
