HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. - Kyle Busch has his 2011 NASCAR racing plans in place and will once again take part in a busy schedule across all three of NASCAR's top divisions.

During Thursday's NASCAR Sprint Media Tour visit to Joe Gibbs Racing, Busch outlined his schedule for the coming year which will include another assault on the Sprint Cup Series championship behind the wheel of the JGR No. 18 Toyota.

Busch will also run fifteen races in his Kyle Busch Motorsports NASCAR Camping World Truck Series entry. He plans on trying to run another truck in selected events with a driver to be determined if sponsorship can be found.

The former Nationwide Series champion will run a JGR Toyota in 20-22 events in NASCAR's number two series teaming up with Cup teammates Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano, who will split driving duties in the No. 20 JGR Camry. The team will also field a full-time Nationwide effort for former truck series driver Brian Scott.

The visit to the Gibbs headquarters included a celebration of the team's 20th anniversary in NASCAR. Former JGR Sprint Cup champions Tony Stewart and Bobby Labonte were on hand to commemorate the occasion which also included a video presentation from Dale Jarrett, who gave Gibbs a victory in the Daytona 500.

The JGR stop was the final event of the 2011 Media Tour.

That comment was with you in mind Spikes....just trying to get under your skin, with great success i might add.  Its not like you don't give it right back to Jr. fans, so just take it easy a little bit.  I didnt say anything about the next 15 years, i'm not sure where that came from.

And once again, Cryle chokes in the Chase and misses out on the grand prize while dominating the minor leagues.



What do you want him to do. Kyle Busch is a race driver, he races cars, trucks, he dont want to sit around Friday and Saturday nights playing video games or sitting at a bar drinking with his buds watching sports.

This comment is not understanding doing what you Love to do. I ask you? what is your favorite driver doing on Friday and Saturday nights?.....

"Rowdy" is only 25 years old and to think he won't win one Sprint Cup Championship in the next 15 years is kinda naive on your part, I guess you would rather have him play iRacing or go to a bar than actually drive a real race car 2 or 3 times a week. You just arent making any sense if you claim you Love racing the way I do. I'd go to the races everyday of the week if I could and so does Kyle Busch. Sad you don't understand really loving to do something and can't get enough of it. I have met "Rowdy" twice in person, he just Loves Racing and to actually drive real race cars, he is ate up with it and it shows everytime he gets behind the wheel. And to call him out on this is ridiculous and you just make yourself look bad while your favorite driver is doing what again?....Thats what I thought. Spikes.
