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.
