Crew chief Adam Stevens pushes Busch's comeback along

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — There was little doubt that Kyle Busch and crew chief Adam Stevens could be successful together. The duo won 19 of their 52 Xfinity Series races, so chemistry clearly wasn't a problem.

Still, Joe Gibbs Racing couldn't guarantee that Stevens would immediately excel in his promotion to the Sprint Cup Series. And, when Busch was injured a day before the Daytona 500, Stevens was given a setback that could have derailed the No. 18 team for the season.
