Kyle Busch rumbled with Joey Logano after the two got into a tangle on the track at the end of today’s NASCAR race in Las Vegas.
The good ol’ bump and run is alive and well in NASCAR. This time, it gave us the first last-lap pass ever at Richmond International Raceway, with Carl Edwards nudging Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch out of the way for the win.
Contact can be a rare occasion on your standard 1.5-mile NASCAR track because fields often become single file, meaning pit road can turn into the main source for traffic jams. One of those jams occurred early on in the Duck Commander 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, roughing up two favorites to win in the process.
It seemed as if more wrecks than actual racing occurred in Saturday’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Martinsville Speedway, culminating in two red flags during the final 15 laps. But the red-flag wait time must have brought everyone to their senses, and the field survived “overtime” without a scratch.
Look at this tight little pass. Look and marvel. This is how Kyle Busch got back on the lead lap after being stuck a lap behind. Busch was on fresh tires, but the leaders were not. Since Busch had more speed, he just threaded right on through and got back on the lead lap.
Kyle Busch found one of the remaining hard barriers on a NASCAR track that isn't covered by an impact absorbing SAFER barrier during today's Xfinity Series race at Daytona. Busch hit the concrete wall inside Turn 1, suffering a right lower leg compound fracture and left mid-foot fracture from the impact.
The most evocative car races in history were when racecars competed on public roads. Monaco. Le Mans. The Carrera Panamericana. Those all featured wimpy sports racers, though. What happens when you put a Nascar on public streets?
On lap 121 of Sunday's Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte, a cable supporting an overhead camera snapped and fell across the track. Ten fans were injured, three hospitalized, and the race was red-flagged for nearly a half-hour after several cars were damaged. It could have been much worse, and the eyewitness video is…
The cable, which belonged to FOX, snapped and struck several cars at lap 124 of the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Kyle Busch was in the lead, and presumably driving upwards of 200 miles an hour when the cable snapped and struck his car and others', causing the race to be red-flagged.
Kyle Busch took the checkered flag today in California, but attention quickly turned to Denny Hamlin—whose crash sent him to the hospital and which let Busch take the lead on the final lap—and Joey Logano, who tangled with Hamlin and eventually found himself the target of Tony Stewart's fists.
NASCAR yanked Kyle Busch's keys after his reckless attack under yellow on Ron Hornaday during Friday's Camping World Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway.
We know, it is awfully hard to believe that some guy who drives expensive cars around at 150 mph for a living would get caught driving an expensive car at 128 mph. Where could he have learned to do something horrible like that?
This is how we like our Sprint Cup: on a road course, and at a time we're supposed to be working.
Your morning roundup for May 1, the day after Seth Meyers said Weekend Update stuff to people's faces.
Fistfights on the track, drivers flipping officials off, flying car parts crashing into skyboxes, and monkeys. Not just another night at Texas Motor Speedway. Monkeys!
