Kyle Busch earned Joe Gibbs Racing and Raybestos Brakes & Chassis the team’s first season win at Saturday’s Budweiser Shootout … just beating the defending champion to the checkered flag.
Busch had two incredible saves during the wild 75-lap sprint around the Daytona International Speedway. At 200 mph, Busch twice controlled his Toyota Camry with expert precision. When asked how he managed to pull off two huge saves, Busch responded, “Stab and steer … that’s what you do … and some braking. There were brakes involved, too. I was steering, stabbing, braking, gassing, everything in-between, trying to keep the thing straight and get it back under control.”
The Raybestos Superspeedway racing brake package, used by NASCAR teams like Joe Gibbs Racing, combines ample stopping power with a considerable weight savings advantage on tracks like Daytona’s 2.5-Mile Tri-Oval.
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.
The lessons learned on tracks like Daytona 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.
