Busch's historic Indy chase includes hope for 500-600 double

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indianapolis is quickly becoming Kyle Busch's favorite racing venue.

Ten years ago, he met his future wife, Samantha, at the 2.5-mile oval.

Last year, he pulled off a rare sweep by winning both poles and both races on Brickyard 400 weekend. It's the last time Busch celebrated a Cup win and now that he's back at the historic 2.5-mile oval, he doesn't want to wait until next September to make a return trip. He'd like to add a May stop to his already full 2018 schedule ad attempt the fabled double bill of the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600.
