Kyle Busch Earns Eighth NNS Season Win with Raybestos Brakes
Stays Out Front for 92 of 100 Laps
McHenry, IL — August 30, 2013 - Kyle Busch nabbed his 8th Nationwide win at Saturday’s Indiana 250 NASCAR® Nationwide Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Under the stopping power of Raybestos brakes, Busch drove his No. 54 Toyota to victory lane… and into the record books.
The victory was Busch’s eighth of the NNS season in 15 starts and the 59th of his career, extending his own series record. Earlier in the day, Busch won his 31st NNS pole, breaking a tie with Mark Martin for the all-time lead in that category.
The Raybestos Racing brake package, used by NASCAR® teams like Joe Gibbs Racing, combines ample stopping power with a considerable weight savings advantage on tracks like the Indianapolis 2.5-mile Speedway.
Raybestos racing brake pads are the ultimate high-friction, high-torque racing pads. The famous Raybestos “ST” series racing compounds provide superior stopping power for championship-caliber race teams.
Raybestos Racing calipers make up the strongest and lightest caliper package currently available in all of NASCAR. They have an optimized structure caliper architecture design and a mono-block aluminum alloy construction. They also include integral crossover cooling and progressively sized titanium pistons.
Raybestos Racing two-piece rotors are engineered to withstand the high-heat torture of short tracks and road courses; delivering the effective lightweight operation required for qualifying and superspeedway runs. Winning features include an S-groove slot design, a racing-specific vane configuration and optimized metallurgy.
For reliable performance, all 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.
The lessons learned on tracks like Indianapolis are continually translated into product improvements across the entire Raybestos product line, which includes racing, street performance, police patrol/pursuit vehicles and heavy-duty trucks.
