RFK Racing driver Chris Buescher was not at all happy with John Hunter Nemechek during Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR Cup Series race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C.

Buescher’s No. 17 Ford Mustang apparently got blocked by Nemechek’s No. 42 Toyota Camry as the former entered pit road. Buescher let his anger be heard over his team radio.

“F—ing 42 car [John Hunter Nemechek]. Piece of s–t,” said Buescher.

Buescher finished 23rd in the NASCAR Cup Series race, while Nemechek placed 30th.

Buescher started 39th on the grid after facing adversity earlier in the weekend. A left-rear tire issue during Saturday’s Cup Series practice sent Buescher’s Ford Mustang spinning into the SAFER barrier. The damage forced Buescher to use a backup car, which his team worked on tirelessly overnight to prepare for Sunday’s race.

On Saturday, Buescher sounded emotional after wrecking his original car.

“From where I was inside the car, it was as hard a hit as you want to take. … It’s not good either way. Rebuilding this car or going with a backup. Neither is a good place,” said Buescher.

The Coca-Cola 600 was red-flagged on lap 246 due to inclement weather and called official after 249 laps. Joe Gibbs Racing driver Christopher Bell, who led for a race-high 90 of the 249 laps, was declared the winner. Brad Keselowski finished second, while William Byron was third in the rain-shortened event.
