American Kurt Bush is well known NASCAR driver, who competed in the leading stock car series since 2000. He is the 2004 NASCAR Cup Series champion and winner of 34 NASCAR Cup races (as of June 2022). In 2014 Busch attempted to perform double duty racing in both the IndyCar Series Indianapolis 500 and the NASCAR Cup Coca-Cola 600 on the same day. Busch started 12th in the Indy 500, driving a fifth car for the Andretti Autosport team. After riding along throughout the race, Busch became more competitive. He finished sixth and received praise from his fellow NASCAR racers for his finish. However, his attempt to do the full 1,100 miles of both races ended 191 miles short when the engine on his Charlotte car blew on lap 273.
