Kalamazoo Klash named in top short track races

Updated: Wednesday, August 13, 2014

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Kalamazoo Klash was recently chosen as one of the 5 best short track races in the nation, so with that in mind, it's not all that shocking that noted short-track enthusiast and NASCAR star Kyle Busch will be on the track Wednesday night at Kalamazoo Motor Speedway.

In fact, Kyle is at the speedway Tuesday evening for a practice session.

Busch is currently in 15th in the Sprint Cup standings, and will pull double duty on Wednesday, competing in the Outlaw Super Late Model race, and then jumping into his No. 51 Toyota Super Series car for the evening's main event.

Busch is not the only big name expected, either, as regulars David Ragan and David Gilliand have now confirmed as well.

Matt Kenseth will be there as well, but only to serve as crew chief for his son Ross.

The pits open at 9:00 a.m. Wednesday, with the first race at 6:30 p.m.

There are still tickets available, for $5 for kids ages 6 to 9, $15 for teens up to age 15, and $25 for adults.
