LAS VEGAS (AP) — Someday in the future, Kyle Busch would love to emulate his older brother's upcoming attempt to run the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 in the same day.

He just doesn't plan to give it a shot until he's got a NASCAR series championship in his trophy case.

He's excited about Kurt Busch's plan to attempt the double on May 25. He hopes his brother doesn't get "too wore out" by the grueling driving and extensive travel necessary to run both races a few hours and about 580 miles apart.

Kyle Busch says he has talked about doing the double himself for several years.

But Kyle always figured he'd wait until he has been NASCAR's series champion, as Kurt Busch was in 2004.
