Auto Racing megastar Kyle Busch, nicknamed Rowdy, has been named the Hickok Belt® Award winner for the month of March 2019. Voting was conducted by a select panel of members of the National Sports Media Association (NSMA).

His selection as the Hickok Belt® Award winner for the month of March 2019 recognizes Kyle Busch as “the best of the best” in professional sports for the month and makes him the third candidate eligible to receive the overall Hickok Belt® Award for 2019, joining Julian Edelman and Tom Brady.
