Aug. 22, 2011

Kyle Busch earned Joe Gibbs Racing and Raybestos Brakes & Chassis the team’s fifth 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup series season win at Sunday’s Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway.

After leading the final 16 laps, Busch, in his No. 18 M&M’s Toyota, crossed the stripe .568 seconds ahead of Jimmie Johnson. This secured his fourth series win of the season and the 23rd of his career. With this victory, Busch, the Cup points leader, becomes the first driver to clinch a berth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

The Raybestos Intermediate racing brake package, used by NASCAR teams like Joe Gibbs Racing, combines ample stopping power with a considerable weight savings advantage on tracks like Michigan’s 2-Mile Tri-Oval. The win at Michigan is JGR’s 93rd Cup victory.

For reliable performance, all the Joe Gibbs Sprint Cup racecars are also equipped with Raybestos Racing ball joints and tie rods. The premium-quality chassis parts help fine-tune each car’s suspension setup for optimal grip and handling.
