4: The number of consecutive spring races at Richmond International Raceway won by Kyle Busch. Since Busch first triumphed at Richmond on May 2, 2009 (his 24th birthday), Joe Gibbs Racing drivers have won six of eight races at RIR, and Toyotas have won seven of eight. Busch got his Richmond weekend off to a fast start Thursday night, winning the charity short-track showdown hosted by teammate Denny Hamlin for the third time in six tries. Busch claimed his first two showdown victories at Southside Speedway in nearby Midlothian, before the event moved to RIR in 2011.
