Here we go again: Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski, Part Deaux(fus). What we saw in the Nationwide race at Kansas, and what Rowdy said afterwards is further evidence most NASCAR drivers should never take up acting; most are poor liars.
Did you hear or see any evidence Busch lifted or swerved to avoid Keselowski? No, I didn’t either (watch video). Perhaps it is with good reason Brad shared this sentiment concerning Busch (click here.) Of course, Busch says he was running tight, and made mentioned of another piece of past history concerning the two (here’s that race.)
Believe what you will about who’s at fault for their history, this is one distraction Kyle Busch does not need as he sits just points behind teammate Matt Kenseth and runner-up Jimmie Johnson. As it is, Busch will have to come charging from the back after wrecking his primary car in practice. Does he really need this now?
You’ll have to excuse me if I don’t buy Busch’s line about what happened Saturday. One could make the argument, and I’d agree that these two had not business being in the Nationwide Series race in the first place. Yes, I said it again. It doesn’t look from the empty seats that these two helped attendance much. Of couse, this could help ratings Sunday.
Kyle didn’t ask me, but I’d say this little dust-up won’t do him many favors. Most other drivers might overlook the offense, others might just exact revenge in the next Nationwide event. I wouldn’t have that confidence concerning Brad Keselowski.
Just when you think the better angels of their nature have prevailed, something like this happens. Looks like from here, a tiger can’t change his stripes- or more fittingly a jackass can’t refrain from kicking.
