SPRINT CUP SERIES DRIVERS
Kyle Busch, #18
Kyle Busch - Driver

“I joined Joe Gibbs Racing in 2008, and I came here to win …. And win … and win.”

No driver embodies the term “relentless” quite like Kyle Busch. No matter his position on the track, he will do all he can to get to the front. And if he’s already there, he’ll fight hard to extend his lead.

Kyle first took the wheel at age 6, cruising around the cul-de-sac of his family’s Las Vegas neighborhood in a makeshift go-kart. By age 10, he was a full-fledged mechanic and served as crew chief on his older brother’s Dwarf car team. At age 13, he began driving competitively.

Today, Kyle is widely considered one of the best drivers in the sport. His strong personality is purely a product of his win-at-all-costs mentality.

“Relentless is that moment where you just keep fighting. You face adversity, but you persevere.”

Denny’s “never give up” attitude led the No. 11 team to the Championship round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup in 2014. Although he’s one of NASCAR’s biggest names now, his career started when he was quite little: He raced karts in the Junior Sportsman League at age 7.

From the kart tracks of Virginia to the superspeedways of NASCAR, Denny has proven he can succeed at any level.

Carl Edwards, #19

“If it was all easy, it wouldn’t be as much fun when you win.”

Carl’s NASCAR career comes down to two words: persistence and performance. Carl grew up watching his father race and was inspired to do the same. Before his big break, he would race at local short-tracks (usually running upfront) and spend his days as a substitute teacher. When he couldn’t find a ride, he’d pass out business cards to anyone who would take them: “Carl Edwards, Race Car Driver.”

Today, Carl is among NASCAR’s elite. He won the 2007 Xfinity Championship and finished second in the 2011 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship, missing out by a tiebreaker.

“No matter how good or bad things are going, never give up. Always work as hard as you can.”

Matt is known for consistency and intense determination. He began his racing career at age 16, winning his first feature event in only his third race. By age 19, he was a regular on the Wisconsin late model circuit. He entered his first Xfinity Series race in 1997 and quickly took the NASCAR world by storm.

Matt is one of only five drivers in the sport’s history to win a Cup Championship (2003), the Raybestos Rookie Award (2000) and the Daytona 500 (2009 and 2012).
