Kurt Busch Gives High Marks To Gresham Motorsports Park
Sunday Cup Winner Tests at Short Track on Tuesday
Track PR Report
Coming off his NASCAR Sprint Cup win at Atlanta Motor Speedway Sunday, Kurt Busch made a stop at Gresham Motorsports Park Tuesday to test his No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge.
“This is a great place to test,” said Busch of the half-mile Gresham Motorsports Park oval. “The track is really repeatable. We’re using a Martinsville tire today, so it’s not exactly the right tire for this place, but we’re still getting a lot of good data. The track is new and it’s nice and smooth. It has a lot of grip. If you can run the bottom, it’s pretty fast. It’s going to be really fast in a year or two when it wears out a little.”
Busch, along with his Penske Racing NASCAR Nationwide Series teammate Justin Algaier, spent the day taking turns lapping the GMP track. During a break, Busch took time out to film a segment for Inside NASCAR for Showtime TV. That program is scheduled to air Wednesday, March 10 at 10 p.m. Eastern Time.
Gresham Motorsports Park will open its 2010 racing season this Saturday with a multi-division spectacular headlined by a Champion Racing Association (CRA) Super Series 125-lap Super Late Model event. Saturday’s GMP season-opening program will also feature Outlaw Late Models, Trucks, Renegade Street Stocks and multiple divisions of US Legends International Legend and Bandolero racers.
