Kyle Busch finishes 13th in virtual IndyCar racing debut
Some people consider the number 13 an unlucky number.
But for NASCAR Cup driver Kyle Busch, 13 was not a bad finishing position considering it was in his first career virtual IndyCar race in the third IndyCar iRacing Challenge event, held Saturday at the Twin Ring Motegi track in Japan.
Busch started 25th in the 33-driver race and made steady progress in his Dallara chassis.
IndyCar regular and defending real-life Indianapolis 500 winner Simon Pagenaud won his second consecutive IndyCar iRacing Challenge event, followed by Scott Dixon and Pagenaud’s teammate, Will Power.
