"With this being a family operation, and then building up from scratch just six, seven years ago, it just feels like it's home right away with the family atmosphere,"  commented Busch at the team's media day.

Kurt knows what family means in NASCAR.  He's raced against his younger brother Kyle for years and keeps a watchful eye on other siblings in the pros.

"Absolutely, the Williams sisters, I always root for Venus because she's the older one," says Busch, "and Peyton being the older one in that scenario.  The sibling aspect of professional sports, there's so much we can teach each other that it's almost two heads thinking as one."

Busch isn't planning a move to Denver just yet, after all, he lives in a motor home for 180 days out of the year.  He does plan to get around town, however, as long as he dig out when he comes to visit.

"I stay at Todd's house, the crew chief's house, in the kids room," he laughs.  "There's a lot of pillow pets I have to move around so I can get rest.  Just in and out of the shop here will be very easy with west coast races.  Phoenix, Vegas, Texas, Kansas, then we're out to Sonoma in June.  So there's a good schedule of being in and out of here all the time.  You'll probably see me at a few Rockies games.  I'm a baseball nut."
