DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Former NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Kurt Busch says he's planning to run both Nationwide series races at Iowa Speedway this season.
Busch says he's slated to run both the May 20 and August 4 races in Iowa this season in the No. 54 Toyota for Kyle Busch Motorsports.
Kurt Busch, the 2004 Cup champion, has tested at Iowa but hasn't raced there. Busch says that Iowa's short oval reminds him of similar setups in Richmond and Phoenix.
Kyle Busch won a Nationwide race at the Iowa Speedway in 2010. Kurt says his brother has told him the key to success at Iowa is to maneuver the car through bumps in the track's first two turns.
