Kyle Busch apologizes for comment about Bubba Wallace at Kansas

Two-time champion Kyle Busch would love to get in and add a third championship to his trophy case but emotions can run hot when you are trying to run down the last playoff spot in the NASCAR Cup Series.

The frustration of last weekend’s disappointing performance and the pressure of the playoff spot came through on the radio directed at Bubba Wallace from Busch on lap 108.

Looking back on his reaction, Busch acknowledged he could have handled himself better in the moment and decided to make amends.

“I actually called him yesterday, we talked about it,” Kyle Busch told FanSided. “I was like dude I was in the wrong, you had a good car and a good day. I was frustrated because I was fading and going backwards. I’m not used to really racing him and so he had a good day and I didn’t have that good of a day so we met there.”

“He knows my mentality, he knows I will go off the deep end but all will be good on Monday,” Busch said. “We talked about the opportunities on restarts and trying to get single file before being able to fight each other. You’re drawing more cars in behind you that was kind of frustrating for me but it’s all good.”
