For many of those that follow NASCAR action, they all know about how well streaks hold up. Typically, the talent rises to the top as the season goes on and guys that get to victory lane in the past usually find a way there at least once during the season. That more than likely is going to change for Kurt Busch this Sunday. Busch is the 2004 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion and has won a race in 10 straight season’s dating back to his first win in 2002 at Bristol. He has 24 career victories and if he doesn’t get number 25 on Sunday his streak will end at 10. He does have some sort of success at Miami though with having one win and four top fives, but with changing over to a new team and how bad Furniture Row Racing has been this year, don’t count of Busch extending his win streak to 11 straight season’s. Another streak that is likely to come to an end is the pole streak for Ryan Newman. Newman has 49 career poles, including at least one in 11 straight seasons. The only season in his career where Newman didn’t register a pole was in 2000 when he ran just one race all year. In 10 career starts at Homestead, Newman has yet to register a pole and only has three top 10 finishes. With his struggles in qualifying this year and not having a pole in the past in Homestead, I’d expect that streak to come to an end as well. Both of these streaks though are going to be watched with close eyes to see if they can be extended for another season.
