Kyle Busch finds himself at Richard Childress Racing (RCR), with three wins under his belt. The transition hasn’t been without challenges, though. Pit road penalties, on-track incidents, and personal mistakes have tested the team’s resilience. Yet, Busch remains optimistic, emphasizing the need to clean up those areas to unlock their full potential.

In one-on-one interview with FOX Sports’ Bob Pockrass, NASCAR driver Kyle Busch shared insights into his racing journey, the pursuit of victory, and the decision to sell Kyle Busch Motorsports.

While Busch’s focus isn’t solely on making the playoffs, he acknowledges that a Cup win holds a special place. It’s not about stress or points—it’s about personal fulfillment. Winning would validate his efforts and provide that elusive sense of accomplishment. As he navigates the challenges at RCR, Busch keeps his eyes on the ultimate prize.

Despite selling KBM, Busch doesn’t regret the decision. The distraction of managing a team could have hindered his performance. Now, unburdened by those responsibilities, he can focus on racing. The KBM legacy lives on, but Busch’s current chapter is all about the Cup Series.

Last September, Kyle Busch made the decision to part ways with KBM, a team he founded back in 2010. Spire Motorsports took over the entire KBM operation, including the assets of the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series team and Rowdy Manufacturing’s chassis building operation and CNC machine shop. The sale also included the 77,000-square-foot facility in Mooresville, North Carolina, where KBM and Rowdy Manufacturing were based.

Under Kyle Busch’s ownership, KBM achieved remarkable success. The team secured its 100th Truck Series win earlier in the season, a testament to their consistent performance. Notably, KBM fielded trucks for two series champions—Erik Jones (2015) and Christopher Bell (2017)—both of whom have since moved up to the Cup Series alongside Busch himself. Additionally, KBM served as a launching pad for promising young talents, including Bubba Wallace, William Byron, Daniel Suárez, Harrison Burton, and Todd Gilliland.
