Kurt Busch’s first 12 races of 2016 have been very good, if mod­estly quiet. The 2004 se­ries cham­pion has 10 top-10 fin­ishes in the 12-race span to go with four top-5 fin­ishes. His av­er­age fin­ish of 9.2 is bet­ter than any full sea­son of his ca­reer to date, and he needs just 12 more top 10s in the re­main­ing 24 races to earn a new ca­reer-best for to­tal top-10 fin­ishes in a sea­son. Busch, 37, is third in Sprint Cup points and still seek­ing his first win of the sea­son.
