Not quite the twin girls from the Shining, but equally as creepy.
Kyle Busch Motorsports announced earlier this afternoon that they have a new sponsor in Monster Energy for his Nationwide team. KBM also announced that both Kyle and Kurt Busch will be sharing the driving duties of the #54 Toyota Camry.
I’ll wait while you process all the jokes that “Monster” brings to the table where these two are involved.
Kyle is set to run 10-15 races while brother Kurt will take the rest of the season. It was “recommended” to Kyle Busch that he not compete in the Camping World Truck Series after his poor choices involving Ron Hornaday, Jr. He has not announced his intentions with the drivers or sponsors of his trucks.
As much as I hate to admit it, the combination of these two drivers in this car will be at the top of the leaderboard each weekend. The Busch Brothers may be hot-headed jerks, but I can’t question their abilities as drivers.
It look like the NASCAR Nationwide Series drivers will have work just as hard to get their cars in Victory Lane or even a slight bit of TV coverage this season as well.
No wonder why Carl Edwards turned down the 2012 Nationwide schedule in favor for (rumored) the ESPN broadcast booth. Even he knew this would be the only way to get on TV this season.
Welcome to the all Danica/all Busch Brothers media circus that NNS will become.
On the bright side, I cannot wait until Kurt and Kyle Busch go at each other in the pits or on the radio. Any bets on if Kurt Busch starts complaining right away about the equipment?
We can only hope.
