RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Kyle Busch has been one of the last four contenders standing in each of the NASCAR Cup Series' last three years, and now that he's secured his spot in stage two of the playoffs, he's approaching next week's race on an unusual and foreign layout at Charlotte Motor Speedway with a devil-may-care attitude.

That could be trouble for others who need to perform to advance.

The elimination race will be run on a combination of Charlotte's 2-mile oval and a road course in the infield. The "roval" is a layout that is narrow in spots and slick in others, one that vexed many teams even when they were just trying to practice on it.
