Hendrick Motorsports driver Kasey Kahne and Joe Gibbs Racing driver Kyle Busch got mixed up at Pocono last weekend, and while Busch attempted to send an e-mail and text, Busch says he is not interested. "I think he was having a bad day, and just loses it. But as far as us talking, we haven't. He did write me an e-mail, but I don't really care anymore," Kahne said. "I don't care to talk to him or anything."
Fantasy Tip: Kahne and Busch will be a tandem to watch Sunday at Michigan if they get into close proximity. While the two are two smart to intentionally wreck each other, they could race each other hard again and accidents will happen.

Joe Gibbs Racing drivers Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth did not show well in practice Saturday, June 7, at Pocono Raceway. Hamlin was 22nd in practice, while Busch was 23rd and Kenseth 27th.
Fantasy Tip: Don't put too much stock into the practice speeds. Hamlin is on the pole for Sunday's race, and he has four career wins at the track with an Average Finish of 12.6 in 16 career starts. Busch has struggled at Pocono, and he is one to avoid for fantasy purposes. He has just four Top 5 finishes in 18 career starts with four DNFs. Kenseth also has never won at Long Pond, but he has a 14.9 Average Finish in 28 career starts, ninth-best among all active drivers.

Joe Gibbs Racing driver Kyle Busch has struggled in his career at Talladega Superspeedway, the site of this weekend's Aarons 499 Sunday, May 4. In 18 career starts, Rowdy has one win with four Top 5s and he has led 155 laps, but he also has five DNFs and an Average Finish of 21.9.
Fantasy Tip: In fantasy formats which restrict the use of a driver to a certain amount of races, owners will want to leave Busch on the shelf this weekend, regardless of price. Save Busch for the short tracks and road courses, where he has proven to be much better over the years.

Goodyear brought a new tire combination to the Toyota Owners 400 at Richmond International Raceway, with its new multi-zone tire on the right side. Joe Gibbs Racing driver Kyle Busch was among the outspoken of drivers after the race. "It's just too hard and too hard of a compound for here," Busch said. "We were all basically on ice here, it was just like having a hard tire out there. The effort that they tried to gain with the left side tire softening it up, you could just take the left sides off, it didn't feel like they did anything."
