Kurt Busch

Where Las Vegas - - THE GUIDE -

Home­town hero Kurt Busch grew up ac­com­pa­ny­ing his fa­ther, Tom, to the race­track. By age 16, he was rac­ing him­self, and later worked for the City of Las Ve­gas while he raced on the week­ends. In 2000, NASCAR team owner Jack Roush in­vited Busch to au­di­tion for his team, and the rest is his­tory. He has won 25 Sprint Cup vic­to­ries and cur­rently drives the No. 41 Haas Au­to­ma­tion Chevrolet SS. Later this year, Busch joins fel­low Las Ve­gas leg­ends An­dre Agassi, Greg Mad­dux and Jerry Tarka­nian as an in­ductee of the South­ern Ne­vada Sports Hall of Fame. He re­turns to Ve­gas for NASCAR Week­end 2015, March 6-8 at the Las Ve­gas Mo­tor Speed­way. When we got back he said, “This is your car.” So I raced against my fa­ther when I first started out.
