All eyes on Busch in ‘Double’ attempt
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — All eyes are on Kurt Busch this weekend as he attempts The Double.
Busch will be the fourth driver to attempt the driving 1,100 miles in the Indianapolis 500 and Coca-Cola 600 on the same day. Only John Andretti, Tony Stewart and Robby Gordon have tried it, and Gordon was the last in 2004. Stewart is the only one to complete both races.
Busch has been auto racing’s cover boy for more than a month. His bid has been dissected, publicized and splashed on the main page of every major website and news outlet. Fox is all in on Busch with the Coca-Cola 600.
ABC will air the Indy 500 at noon Eastern time Sunday and Fox has the NASCAR race six hours later.
