Kyle Busch finishes second in 25th annual Kalamazoo Klash
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Kyle Busch was back at Kalamazoo Speedway Wednesday night for the second time in the last four years.
The 2015 Sprint Cup champion competed in a pair of races Wednesday, including the speedway's signature event, the 25th annual Kalamazoo Klash.
It's an event lauded in racing circles as one of the most prestigious short track races in the country.
Busch was forced out of the 2014 Klash after just 30 laps because of an engine failure, although he did take the checkered in the race that immediately preceded the Klash.
Busch competed in the same two events tonight.
In Wednesday night's ARCA/CRA Super Series race, Busch--who is currently 6th in NASCAR's Monster Cup standings--was unable to duplicate his win of three years ago, finishing 13th--well behind tonight's winner Travis Braden.
He came up just short of his other goal of winning the Klash itself, finishing second.
