Kyle Busch Apologizes After Using Slur In Post-Race Interview

Kyle Busch was one of many NASCAR drivers to air their frustrations after being wrecked during the NASCAR Cup Series Race at Martinsville this week.

Busch took issue with Brad Keselowski for wrecking him into the wall late in the race.

“He drills my ass coming out of (turn) 4 for no reason,” Busch said after the race.

“I mean, where was he going? What was he gonna do? Spin me out? He was trying to do a (Kevin) Harvick is what he was trying to do. For what? For second place? To do what, he wasn’t gonna transfer through with that.”

“It’s frickin’ (r-word), man. So stupid.” Busch added. “I don’t understand these guys. I should beat the s*** out of him right now, is what I should do. But, that doesn’t do me any good, either.”

After the interview went viral, Kyle Busch took to social media to apologize for using the r-word during his comments.

After the wreck, Kyle Busch missed out on the Final Four. And will look to next season to compete for a championship.

Across NASCAR, some issues with slurs and comments have occurred over the years. Just last season, current standings leader, Kyle Larson, sat out the year after firing off an N-word during a live gaming stream.

Hopefully Kyle Busch learned his lesson on Sunday.
