It's no secret Kyle Busch has won a lot of races in his NASCAR career, 199 of them to be exact.
It's mind-boggling to think about how many race trophies the 33-year-old driver has taken home. Busch tried to put things in perspective Sunday after he scored his 52nd career NASCAR Cup victory in the TicketGuardian 500 at ISM Raceway in Phoenix.
After the race, someone asked Busch: Did he really have to build a house just to store all that hardware?
"You're not the first person that's asked me that question, but it is a funny question," Busch said. "Yes, I did have to build a house. It's a 77,000-square-foot building in Mooresville, North Carolina, that houses Kyle Busch Motorsports and houses 199 (race trophies) plus all of the KBM drivers' trophies and stuff like that.
"We've gotten our fair share of trophy cases that we've gone through. Every time we build a new one we fill it up, so it's a good problem to have. It's been fun."
Busch also has 94 Xfinity Series victories and 53 wins in the Gander Outdoors Truck Series. Then there's the most impressive trophy in his collection: the 2015 NASCAR Cup championship trophy.
That's a lot of trophies.
In fact, Busch and his drivers are running out of room for trophies at the facility, which opened in 2010.
"There's actually a few trophies in a few peoples' offices, a couple of them sitting on the floor — they're all over the place," Busch said.
Like Busch said, it's a nice problem to have.
