On Sunday, Kyle Busch will make his Joe Gibbs Racing debut in position 20.
While there is considerable discussion about the No. 18's future, the here and now is considerably easier.
Busch is presently 11th in the playoff hunt and very much on the verge of quitting.
He qualified about six tenths of a second slower than Tyler Reddick's pole performance. Busch had a fantastic vehicle in the spring.
In the individual stages, he finished first and second, but third overall. Does it correlate to some of the rear tyre wear concerns we saw in practise on Sunday?
As Busch advances up the field, the current belief is that it might. That provides some solid DFS opportunities.
