A triple threat
Top five things that could derail Kyle Busch's "triple"
1. One of his race teams makes him pay for his own jet fuel.
2. Prolonged Victory Lane celebration in the truck race makes him late for his helicopter to the next venue.
3. He decides to jump into an IndyCar at Texas just to prove he can win in those cars, too.
4. Leaves his lucky underwear in Nashville.
5. His charter flight was being staffed by Continental employees.
