NASCAR’s winningest driver will be bringing his talents to Southern National Motorsports Park on Saturday night.
Kyle Busch, the two-time and most recent champion in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, will race in the PRA Super Late Model feature of the Solid Rock Carriers Thanksgiving Classic – his first start in a Late Model as a driver at Southern National Motorsports Park.
The 34-year-old from Las Vegas, Nevada has fielded cars as an owner at Southern National. His cars have won races in the CARS Super Late Model Tour with drivers Christopher Bell, who will also compete in the NASCAR Cup Series in 2020, and Raphael Lessard. Busch himself was on hand at the inaugural CARS Tour race, which was held at Southern National in March 2015, after being injured in an accident earlier in the year at the Daytona International Speedway.
While Busch is known most for his NASCAR success, which includes 208 wins across the upper echelons of NASCAR racing, he is also one of the most successful drivers in Super Late Model racing. Busch has won the Snowball Derby twice and has won numerous times in CRA competition, which includes a victory in the Slinger Nationals in Wisconsin.
The PRA Super Late Model race will be the nightcap of Saturday’s portion of the Thanksgiving Classic which will see racing for nine different divisions. The green flag on Saturday’s Solid Rock Carriers Thanksgiving Classic will wave at 3:30pm.
