Video: Kyle Busch Wrecks Ron Hornaday Under Caution, Gets Suspended

Kyle Busch is one of the most competitive drivers on the NASCAR circuit, and he’s not a good sport when things don’t go his way. After getting bumped by Ron Hornaday during Friday’s truck race at Texas Motor Speedway, Busch hooked Hornaday into the wall under caution. The wreck caused Hornaday to fall out of contention for the trucks championship. NASCAR also is forcing Busch to to miss the rest of the races this weekend to promote orderly conduct. Here’s a video of the incident:

“If I just lay over and give up everything for Ron Hornaday, that’s not Kyle Busch’s fashion. I’m out here to win a race just as much as anybody else is. When he races up on my inside, gets loose, and takes me up to the fence, I ended up losing my cool. I’ve been wrecked four weeks in a row and finally I just had enough of it.”

Man, Kyle Busch is one of the biggest jerks in NASCAR. But I love him. Can’t defend what he did, but if anybody hates losing more than him I don’t know who it is. Plus, he gets bonus points for going all Rickey Henderson in the interview.

Kyle Busch Has License Suspended and Will Pay Fine for Speeding

We all know that athletes and celebrities get special treatment in the world of legal matters. Let’s say — hypothetically — that Dustin Pedroia was walking around the streets of Boston hammered in the days before the World Series. That would qualify as public intoxication and would certainly be illegal, but what police officer is going to arrest the heart of the Red Sox before they begin a championship series?

One would think the situation is similar with stock car drivers, especially when dealing with speeding tickets.  Kyle Busch can tell you it is not.  From the Marbles pointed out to us on Tuesday that Busch has been ordered to pay a $1,000 fine, complete 30 hours of community service, and give up his license as a result of a speeding incident a few months back.

Busch will be able to keep his NASCAR license, so his racing schedule will not be affected.  On one hand I’m surprised to see a NASCAR driver lose his license for speeding when it is probably an instinct more than anything (kidding kind of).  On the other hand I realize you can’t drive 128 MPH in a 45 MPH zone and expect to just pay a fine.  Traveling at that speed is dangerous no matter who you are — even if it still felt slow to Busch.

Kyle Busch Did 128 in a 45 MPH Zone, Cited for Reckless and Careless Driving

NASCAR driver Kyle Busch doesn’t take crap from anyone on the track, and apparently he sometimes feels like he doesn’t have to answer to anyone off of it. How else can you explain the report saying he was cited Tuesday for driving 128 MPH in a 45 zone????

According to the Statesville Record & Landmark, “Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Chris Stone, a member of the Aggressive Criminal Enforcement (ACE) team, stopped a yellow sports car after he clocked it doing 128 mph in a 45 mph zone on Perth Road near Judas Road, between Troutman and Mooresville,” Tuesday in North Carolina.

Busch was cited for reckless and careless driving, and his actions make Jason Richardson look tame. My only question for you is this: if the man drives cars over 200 miles per hour for a living, is doing 128 on the streets really reckless or careless? Think about it. Oh, and by the way, was there any doubt his car would be yellow? I bet it comes with a peanut M&Ms dispenser built into the glove compartment box.

Shake and bake, Twackle

Video: Kyle Busch Crashes in Final Lap, Tony Stewart Wins at Daytona

The Coke Zero 400 at Daytona didn’t end as hoped for Kyle Busch on Saturday. He was leading down the stretch and was trying to hold off Tony Stewart who was angling to make a pass to win the race. Busch held him off at first but then had a problem the second time that Stewart tried to make a pass. Check out the video:

It’s hard to say who’s really at fault but it seems to me that it was just a case of bad luck for Busch. He had to try and stay in front of Stewart to win the race and the bump to the rear sent him into the wall. Even Stewart wasn’t happy with the result despite winning the race:

Kyle Busch Serves as Best Man for Landry Wedding After Vegas Qualifying

NASCAR’s in Las Vegas this weekend, and in addition to casinos, strip clubs, and brothels, Vegas is well-known for its walk-up wedding chapels. Well, Damon and Heather Landry of Laramie, Wyoming decided the racetrack would be a cooler place to get married than some trashy chapel. One problem — Damon didn’t have a best man to help out. Good thing Kyle Busch was there for the assist.

I guess Elvis wasn’t available.
