Kurt Busch

He won the 1998 Auto Zone Elite Division Southwest Series Rookie of the Year, followed by winning the 1999 series championship. That led to a tryout in a Roush Racing "Gong Show," which he won and earned a Craftsman Truck Series ride. In the championship standings, he finished second and won Rookie of the Year. Busch had a breakout year in 2002, winning four races, had 12 top fives and 20 top tens, leading to a third place finish in points. In 2003, at Darlington Raceway, he and Ricky Craven were side-by-side around the track. Craven crossed the finish line 0.002 seconds ahead of Busch, making it the closest finish in NASCAR history. His 2005 season was cut short after being pulled over in Arizona for suspicion of drunken driving and cited for reckless driving. Roush Racing suspended him. He was sentenced to serve 50 hours of community service to be completed within one year. In the February 2006 edition of GQ magazine, he was number three of its list of top ten most hated athletes, behind Barry Bones and Terrell Owens. In the 2009 Kobalt Tools 600, he gained his 19th Spring Cup Series win, leading more laps in the race than he did in his entire 2008 season. In 2010, he won the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race, and the next weekend, he won the Coca-Cola 600. He won the first competitive event of the 2011 season, the Budweiser Shootout. Busch is the third driver to cross over between NASCAR and the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA), which he started in 2011. « Show less
