GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Kurt Busch's professional drag-racing career might be a one-and-done venture.
Busch is making his Pro Stock debut at the NHRA Gatornationals this week. But with NASCAR having condensed its 2012 schedule by removing the early season off weekend, this could be Busch's first and final foray into the straightline sport - at least at this level.
If so, he wants to make it a memorable run.
Busch, the 2004 Sprint Cup champion who is tied for the points lead this season, got a small taste of drag racing last year in Gainesville. He spent four days at the track, but heavy rain and flooding postponed the Sportsman class and allowed him to make just two passes.
He responded by moving into a professional class, knowing those drivers won't get bumped.
