Kyle Busch, younger brother of Kurt, is one of the most successful and versatile drivers in NASCAR history. A perennial winner, he is happy to compete in multiple NASCAR classes over the same race weekend when he's been known to complete a clean sweep of Truck, Xfinity and premier class Sprint Cup Series victories.

His greatest achievement came in 2015 when a broken leg and ankle, sustained during a second-tier NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Daytona International Speedway in February, threatened to sideline him from that year's Sprint Cup campaign. 

11 points-paying races came and went before Busch returned to the cockpit ahead of schedule, albeit with his hopes of a first title in tatters. A waiver granted by NASCAR offered a glimmer of hope, though, and Busch took full advantage by claiming four wins in five mid-season weeks to fight his way into the championship-deciding Chase. 

The rest, as they say, is history.

Kyle made his ROC debut in Miami where he and brother Kurt (Team USA NASCAR) finished second to Sebastian Vettel's Team Germany in the ROC Nations Cup. He also reached the Race Of Champions quarter-finals where he was knocked out by David Coulthard.
