Just when I thought that either one of the controversial Busch brothers had learned to keep their feet out of their mouths by keeping their mouths shut, I was proven wrong once again! After the Camping World RV Sales 301 yesterday Kyle Busch called Ryan Newman out by calling him an idiot!
The following was an interaction between brother Kyle Busch and an ESPN reporter.
Furniture Row Racing driver of the #78 Chevy, Kurt Busch kept his cool after being involved in a wreck with Ryan Newman that ended his chances of winning Sunday’s Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire, but his younger brother didn’t.
Kyle Busch took several shots at Newman, who earlier in the week learned this would be his last season with Stewart-Haas Racing. “I really hate it that Kurt got tore up and I felt like he had the best car here today,” Kyle said to ESPN of his brother, who led a race-high 102 laps. “He was definitely good. He could definitely roll the long runs for sure and I was proud of those guys, but man just stupidity.”
“I mean Ryan Newman is the biggest stupid idiot out here. And he’s a big ogre and he can do whatever he wants because he can probably kick anybody’s butt, so no sense in getting into a fight with him. But glad he is out of a job” (emphasis added), Kyle continued.
The incident occurred on lap 226 of 302. It turned a potential win into a 31st-place finish that dropped Kurt from ninth to 14th in the standings. Kurt didn’t mention Newman after the incident, but said he got hit from behind. The driver behind him was #20-Matt Kenseth. Newman, who finished 39, said Kurt took himself out.
“I guess [Kenseth] had a little influence on it,” Newman said. “We were kind of in a bad spot having a little bit older tires. … Just a lot of disrespect from a bunch of guys on restarts. What comes around goes around.”(ESPN)
This is a little early for either of the Busch’s to begin to unravel. Usually, “the leaves fall off of the Busch’s” in early Fall!
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
