 Rear View Mirror


 

The following storybook you’re about to look through was collected in and around Daytona International Speedway in the days leading right up to the running of the 2017 Daytona 500. Quietly confident and optimistic about his chances in what would be the 576th start of his career - and even though he had never won at Big Bill France’s 2.5-mile superspeedway - Kurt Busch knew he had a car that was up to the task. We all know what played out on Sunday at the 59th Daytona 500 so no real need to go into that here, but looking into the rear view mirror (even though he lost his during the final green-flag run on Sunday night) and into Kurt Busch’s mind’s eye in the days leading up to the biggest victory of his 17-year career makes for some compelling and interesting clairvoyance. Ex post facto the Great American Race, check it out.

 Based in garage slot No. 18 all week at Daytona International Speedway, day by day, minute by minute and second by second, Busch and the Monster Energy/Haas Automation Stewart-Haas race team ceaselessly and meticulously went over the No. 41 Ford Fusion inch by inch “We’re smoothing it out and looking for more straight line speed,” pointed out Busch on Friday afternoon. “Ultimately, there is a ton of technology that is poured into these cars.”
