Races won in 2009:
Las Vegas, Bristol (twice), Richmond
2010 outlook: After watching his win total drop by half from 2008 and missing the Chase for the first time since his rookie season, the ultra-talented, ultra-tempestuous one returns as a bit of a broken pony -- perhaps. Broken in a good way, that is. Busch is the owner of a new truck series team (though sponsor woes are likely a worry), and he's settled down and newly signed to a long-term deal. None of his previous employers (Roush, Hendrick) had ever actually given him a new contract. Busch is too good not to thrust himself back into the championship hunt for Joe Gibbs Racing.
