Richard Childress and Kyle Busch Involved in Physical Altercation After Saturday’s Truck Race at Kansas Speedway + Links to All Statements and Penalties

June 6, 2011 1 Comment

Kyle Busch was confronted by Richard Childress following Saturday’s truck race at Kansas Speedway, where Busch finished in sixth just behind Richard Childress Racing’s, Joey Coulter. 65 year old Childress reportedly removed his jewelry and put Busch in a headlock, punching him three times and dropping him to the ground.

Childress wasn’t happy with what happened during the cool-down lap following the O’Reilly Auto Parts 250 on Saturday, where Busch tapped Coulter, damaging the No. 22 RCR truck.

This is the third off the track incident for the 26 year old Busch in less than a month. Busch was put on probation after an altercation with RCR driver Kevin Harvick following the race at Darlington Raceway and then caught going 128 mph in a 45 mph zone on a North Carolina county road.

    Every one at some point in their lives gets into a position where no matter what they do, they can’t win. Such was Kybu’s problem. Can’t hit an old man, but have to live with the fact that the old man whooped him. I don’t think it was fair for RC to put him in that position. Heck, the author’s mom could take Kybu for the same reason. (Actually, she could take him anyway). Even as I chuckle at his predicament, I feel his pain. I’m glad Kyle had the class to just take it, let it pass, and move on. Happy could learn a lot from this. Sometimes the classiest thing to do is nothing at all. Oh yeah, GO JR!!!!!!!
