From 2010 to 2011, Busch accomplished 14 wins, eight poles and 24 top-five finishes. With Busch behind the wheel of his own truck, he won the 2010 Owner’s Championship.
The last time Busch paid a visit to Victory Lane was on Sept. 24, 2011, when the truck series last raced at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
In his past seven truck series races at Atlanta, Busch has won four and has seven top ten finishes.
