SARATOGA SPRINGS - Kyle Busch has thrilled fans with his aggressive driving style in NASCAR sanctioned races all across the country.

Thursday, Busch took time away from his busy schedule preparing for this weekend's Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, N.H., to meet and greet fans at the Saratoga Convention Center.

His appearance was the third in a series of guest appearance sponsored by the Saratoga Auto Museum in conjunction with its Moonshine to Millionaires - NASCAR's History, Heroes and Technology exhibit.

Busch, drives the No. 18 M&M'S Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing in the Sprint Cup Series and owns Kyle Busch Motorsports, which runs the No. 54 in the Nationwide Series and the No 18 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

In 2010, Busch became the first driver to win in all three of NASCAR's top three touring series in the same weekend at Bristol International Speedway.

"I love Bristol, it is one of my favorite race tracks," Busch said. " To be able to go there and start out on Wednesday with the truck series race. We won the truck race. Then they brought in the Cup cars and the Nationwide cars on Friday and Saturday night.

"The Nationwide race was pretty cool and it was one race where I actually didn't have a pit road penalty. We ended up winning and the next night we went into the Cup race," he said. "There was a little bit of pressure there because you want to be the first one to win the triple of all three races in the same weekend. It was a really good weekend for us. I won the triple and am the only one to do it so far."

The trophy presented to him that weekend was on display in front of the sold-out crowd of fans along with his M&M's-sponsored Toyota.

Before arriving at the Convention Center, Busch hosted a group of kids at the museum through the Make A Wish Foundation.

The Moonshine to Millionaires exhibit, will continue through November. However, it was announced Thursday the Richard Childress-owned No. 3 Goodwrench Chevrolet driven to victory by Dale Earnhardt will be leaving the display by the end of September

Childress is scheduled to be the next guest to talk with race fans at the museum on Oct. 18.
