This Sunday, NASCAR goes to the two mile track at Michigan for the Pure Michigan 400. Kyle Busch getting closer to the Chase... Remembering the "Gentle Giant"... And, Tony Stewart reaches out to help a grieving Iowa family.
FOX News Radio's Marghiee Teshineh reports in "FOX in the Fast Lane":
As drivers return to Michigan this weekend, Kyle Busch can finally say:
(Busch) "For us to be in the Top 30 right now that obviously allows us to change our mindset maybe a little bit here going forward."
Busch now has enough points to be considered Chase eligible by NASCAR, as long as he remains in the Top 30 by the start of the Chase.
Busch admits he second guessed some of crew chief Adam Stevens' calls especially on fuel mileage, but now...
(Busch) "I'm with Adam 100 percent of the way all of the time. You know, he's doing a great job right now so, we've obviously got some things clicking and, and he knows what he's doing."
NASCAR mourning the loss of racing legend and broadcaster Buddy Baker who died from complications from lung cancer at age 74. Baker, known as the "Gentle Giant", was inducted into both the National Motorsports Press Association Hall of Fame and the International Motorsports Hall of Fame.
And, Tony Stewart donates $1,400 to help an Iowa family, who lost three sons last week in a car accident.
