Busch: "We kind of had a hole that we had to dig ourselves out of."

Sunday’s race at Las Vegas could change Kyle Busch’s season. Busch was finally at the level expected and eventually achieved a third-place finish “It’s all about building blocks. I felt like today was a good building process for us.

I just always kept trying to give the best feedback I possibly could,” Busch said, as quoted by motorsport Busch is pleased with the feedback from his team which the crew did a great job this time and helped Busch achieve a good result “Being able to tell (crew chief Ben Beshore) what the car was doing, where we were coming from with the adjustments we were making.

“He was making good adjustments all day. Seemed like the first two or three of them really didn’t do anything. We started taking swings with wrenches in the back window, stuff like that. “Off on balance to start.

Got way better towards the end. Still there was room for improvement there at the end. Overall, our speed was a little off”.

Finding solutions

Busch and his team are trying to work as hard as they can and seem to be persistent in finding the right solution that could help the team.

Now they are also working on identifying certain errors “Last year, once we lost practice and everything like that, we knew we weren’t going to go back to practice, we would go to the simulator every single week,” he said.

“I spent five hours there working on things, trying to get us the right balance." “This week we came to the race track super, super tight. I mean, eight numbers tighter on the race track than it was in sim."

"Typically, when you’re good in sim, you’re about two numbers loose. I don’t know. It’s just a big deal. “I mean, a lot of it is tire. We have to figure out the tire model and try to make what we think is right there.

We’ll keep working on it. That’s the only tool we’ve got”. He hopes for better results in Phoenix "We kind of had a hole that we had to dig ourselves out of. We’ve been working on that each week, getting closer,” he said.

“We keep starting these races too far back or too far off on balance with the race car, we miss points in the first stage, and that’s just been killing us”.
