Kyle Busch puts Truck team ownership plans on hold

   By Mike Mulhern

   Kyle Busch, who is off to another hot start in NASCAR, appears to be backing off plans to expand his own company to include a NASCAR Truck team.
   Busch, who won more than 20 NASCAR national events last season in Cup, Nationwide and Truck, comes to Atlanta Motor Speedway fresh off a win at Las Vegas.
   He said two weeks ago he was interested in expanding to ownership of a Truck team. But Friday he said he is reassessing his own company right now.
   "I need a better business model," Busch said. "We spent way too much money on our Late Model team last year, and we need to straighten that out.
   "To start up a Truck team would require at least $8 million, and to run it for a year would cost another $3 million. That's an $11 million investment right off the bat.
   "I need to start working on a retirement plan first."
