Alex Bowman, Kyle Busch Talk After Las Vegas

Kyle Busch reached out to Alex Bowman regarding his comments toward Bowman’s Las Vegas Motor Speedway victory after the checkered flag dropped last Sunday.

Busch’s post-race frustration boiled over onto team radio communications. Said Busch: “Same (expletive) guy who backs into every (expletive) win that he ever (expletive) gets, backs into another (expletive) win.”

But following the Monday night chat with Busch, Bowman felt it was nothing personal and had everything to do with Busch’s tight grasp on victory being ripped away following a late-race caution.

“Everything’s good, everything’s fine,” Bowman told NASCAR.com “He was just mad to lose the race. I totally understand that. I didn’t do anything to him besides take the race away. I don’t think there’s an issue between him and I.”
