Is Kyle Busch Motorsports in trouble?

   Following Friday's NASCAR Truck Series qualifying at Talladega Superspeedway, Kyle Busch was asked about plans for Kyle Busch Motorsports in 2014. Busch did not sound very optimistic.

    This was his response:

    "No, unfortunately we don't (know our plans) and a lot of that comes from the unknown with what's going on in the world of sponsorship. For the Truck series it's very tough. For Kyle Busch Motorsports, it's been very tough. You know obviously without the support of Toyota that we get, we probably wouldn't be here, so we appreciate them as much as they do for us, as much as they do for JGR (Joe Gibbs Racing), MWR (Michael Waltrip Racing) and all the Toyota teams," Busch said.

    "It's a little frustrating to not have a better plan organized right now and I'd certainly like to keep it the same if not better than what we've got, but it doesn't look like much is materializing and it's really late in the game. Always is and Trucks especially, it's year to year whether you can keep yourself afloat."

   KBM is located in Mooresville, N.C.
