Busch‘s first Xfinity Series win came in 2004 at Richmond Raceway on May 14. In fact, his first five national series wins all came in the Xfinity Series driving for Hendrick Motorsports. His 100 Xfinity Series wins are a dominant 51 more than that of the next closest driver — NASCAR Hall of Famer Mark Martin, who has 49 wins. Kevin Harvick is next on the list at 47 wins, followed by Brad Keselowski with 39 and Carl Edwards with 38.
The 100 Xfinity Series wins make Busch the third driver in NASCAR national series history to earn 100 or more wins in one series. NASCAR Hall of Famers Richard Petty (200 wins) and David Pearson (105 wins) have also accomplished that feat, but in the NASCAR Cup Series. Busch has 58 wins in the sport‘s top series —tied with Harvick for ninth-most entering Sunday‘s Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway.
Busch won the 2009 Xfinity Series championship before later winning the 2015 and 2019 NASCAR Cup Series championship — all of which have come while driving for Joe Gibbs Racing.
Last weekend at Texas, his 99th win in the Xfinity Series, also marked the 300th win for JGR with Toyota. He has three wins in as many Xfinity Series starts this season.
