Kyle Busch is one of the most controversial figures in modern-day NASCAR history, but he is also one of their toughest champions. In fact, he proved that back in September 2016 when he finished second at Richmond Raceway and took over the points lead heading into the first race of the playoffs. Keep in mind this was only months after severely injuring his legs in a crash at Daytona International Speedway and being out for months, making him a bit of a comeback story. Despite this second-place showing at Richmond and getting the points lead, Busch's battle had just begun.
