Rowdy holeshots The Sarge
Kyle Busch seems to be infallible. He has won 18 times in NASCAR's three national divisions and leads the Sprint Cup Series with eight victories this season. He is also quite the little drag racer.
Earlier this week, Busch, along with perhaps the greatest Top Fuel racer ever, Tony Schumacher, went to the new zMAX Dragway at Concord for a promotional match race before the NHRA event in two weeks.
Racing identically prepped Camry pace cars, Busch took the first heat over Schumacher in a holeshot, Schumacher then went red on race two. The event culminated with Busch's .102-second RT and 14.544 ET, which again resulted in a holeshot loss for The Sarge.
Had this been an episode of Pinks, Schumacher would have lost his ride.
