Busch also added that winning in Michigan where two of the three manufacturers are based is extremely important to his team.

“We also come here to Michigan for bragging rights. I've always driven that way,” Busch said. “It really shines through when you see Doug Yates here, Mark Rushbrook (from Ford Performance) is here, everybody from all departments, the chief aero guy was here this weekend from Stewart‑Haas.

The list of winning NASCAR drivers so far this 2018 season has been underwhelming, to say the least. Really, you've got three tiers of winning drivers. Atop the pyramid are Kevin Harvick and Kyle Busch, whose five and four wins, respectively, pace the rest of the field. Then there's Martin Truex Jr. and Clint Bowyer, who each have a pair of victories (thanks to Bowyer's second last weekend at Michigan). And rounding out the field, you have Joey Logano and Austin Dillon, both of whom have a single win.
