Kurt Busch had made some promises to his adopted stepson, Houston, and the Sprint Cup driver had every intention of keeping them in a bonding experience they shared this summer.

But there was one request Busch was unable to fulfill during the 26-race regular season.
“He wanted to go to Victory Lane, and I didn’t win yet this year in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series,’’ said Busch, who also was winless in his three Nationwide Series appearances.
