Could Kyle Busch run a Supercars event this year?

Talk of Supercars looking to lure a NASCAR ace for a one-off start surfaced late last year with Kyle Busch the driver, Erebus Motorsport the team and the Vailo Adelaide 500 the event at the centre of the rumours.

Given the turmoil experienced by the title-winning Erebus squad earlier this season there was an assumption that the plan was shelved, however a new wave of speculation suggests a version of the plan is still in the works.

According to the latest speculation, Busch is still the targeted driver while the season-ending Adelaide 500 remains the likeliest event should the plan come together. [The race will be Saturday, November 16, a week after the end of the NASCAR season]

The link to Busch comes through his Richard Childress Racing team, which ran Brodie Kostecki for his NASCAR cameo last year, and Will Brown at Sonoma last weekend.
