Raybestos brakes help make Bristol victory look “EZ” for Kyle Busch
In his No. 18 M&M’s Toyota, Busch took the checkered flag in Sunday's Scotts EZ Seed 300 to sweep the weekend at the famed Tennessee short track.
This is Busch’s 5th Cup win at Bristol, where the driver also boasts three Nationwide victories and three Camping World Truck victories.
“As we've come to expect, the Raybestos brakes were there for us all day,” said Dave Rogers, Crew Chief of Busch's No. 18 M&M's Toyota. “It's great to be able to go into a short track race, knowing that Kyle can drive it hard to get the win, and the brakes aren't going to be a concern.”
With the benefit of more than 100 years of on-track development, the famous Raybestos “ST” series of racing brake pad compounds provided Busch with consistent, reliable stopping power needed to win at short track events.
The Raybestos Racing calipers used by Joe Gibbs Racing are engineered to provide a competitive advantage at hard-braking short tracks. With one of the most advanced caliper designs in all of motorsport, the Raybestos "Heavy Intermediate" brake package employed at tracks like Bristol can provide up to a 6-pound weight savings, as compared to similar competitive brake packages currently available in NASCAR. The Optimized Structure Caliper Architecture design for the Intermediate calipers includes mono-block aluminum alloy construction, integral crossover cooling and progressively sized titanium pistons.
Engineered to withstand the high-heat torture of short tracks and road courses, the Raybestos Racing two-piece rotors provide effective, durable operation thanks to the S-Groove slot design, racing-specific vane configuration and optimized metallurgy.
