(AP) -- It didn't seem much could still go wrong this year for Kyle Busch until his engine blew with 22 laps remaining in NASCAR's opening playoff race.

Busch had dominated at Darlington Raceway and led a race-high 155 laps for what should have been a much needed victory. He's had a crummy season and the 10-race playoff stretch is probably the final days of his career with Joe Gibbs Racing.
