Kyle Busch, the 2015 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion, took home some hardware at Wednesday night’s ESPY Awards, winning Best Driver – his second win in the last four years.
 
Busch, who also won the award in 2016, received the most votes in the category full of elite drivers including Formula One’s Lewis Hamilton, NHRA’s Steve Torrence and IndyCar’s Scott Dixon.


 
With Busch’s win, NASCAR drivers have now won the award in four of the past five seasons (Martin Truex Jr. – 2018; Kyle Busch – 2016; and Kevin Harvick – 2015). 
 
Busch won eight races in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2018, tying Kevin Harvick for the most in the series. He also logged 28 top 10s and 22 top fives across 36 total points races. Busch is poised for another title run in 2019 as he’s already logged four wins, 10 top fives and 15 top 10s in 18 starts this season. 
 
In March of this year at Auto Club Speedway, Busch picked up his 200th career NASCAR national series victory, the same track where he notched his first career Monster Energy Series victory in 2005. Heading into this weekend in Kentucky for the Quaker State 400, Busch will be gunning for his 56th career win in NASCAR’s premier series.
