Known for his talent and intensity as a driver, Busch is one of NASCAR's most popular and prominent competitors. And with a combined 105 career victories in NASCAR's three top touring series – which puts him third behind Hall of Fame legends Richard Petty (200) and David Pearson (106) – Kyle Busch is one of the most successful drivers in the history of the sport.
One week after his appearance at the Canadian Motorsports Expo, Busch will be at Daytona International Speedway to take part in qualifying in advance of the season-opening Daytona 500. Compared to his lofty standards, Busch had a relatively difficult season in 2012 and he's looking forward to returning to his winning ways in 2013, and that includes challenging for his first career NASCAR Sprint Cup title. Prior to signing autographs for the fans, at the CME, Busch will be on stage to discuss his career and the upcoming NASCAR season. The 27 year old has raced in Canada several times and appreciates how passionate Canadian racing fans are.
"Every time that I've raced north of the border – whether it be Late Models at Delaware Speedway or in the Nationwide Series at Montreal – I've been really impressed by the enthusiasm of the Canadian fans, so I'm looking forward to being a part of the Canadian Motorsports Expo in Toronto next month," said Busch, who is a five-time qualifier for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship. "Although the Sprint Cup Series doesn't have an event in Canada, most weekends you see Canadian flags flying in the camping areas, especially at the Northern tracks – Michigan, Watkins Glen, New Hampshire – where they draw a lot of Canadian fans, so this will be a good chance to meet those folks and let them know that we appreciate their support."
Discussing Kyle Busch's appearance at the Canadian Motorsports Expo, show co-promoter David Weber said, "We are extremely excited to announce that Kyle Busch will be our headline star on Sunday, February 10 at the CME. Over the years, the show has presented some of racing's biggest personalities and having Kyle Busch as this year's featured guest continues that tradition. We're very pleased with the way that the 7th annual CME is coming together and we're confident that with the support of the fans and the racing community, it will be the best CME yet."
Details surrounding Kyle Busch's appearance at the CME will be announced shortly. For updates on this and other CME news, visit the website at www.CanadianMotorsportsExpo.com.
