Race car driver Kurt Busch works out at a gym in Ellicott City, Md., in this photo taken on April 24. On Memorial Day weekend, NASCAR's bad boy is trying to own the title of baddest man on the track by pulling off racing's version of an IronMan triathlon. In a single day, he'll try and race in the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600, with a race or two against the clock thrown in. - photo by Associated Press
