Kyle Busch and Elliott Sadler clearly will not be joining each other for dinner and a movie anytime soon following their dispute during Wednesday night’s truck race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Busch and Sadler made contact several times throughout the night which is usual on the high banked half mile but it was contact on Lap 99 where the dispute reached it’s climax. Busch and Sadler were battling for third coming out of turn two, just behind the No. 23 of Jason White.

Busch slid up the track in front of Sadler to take over the third place position but wasn’t clear, sending his Toyota directly into the outside wall and destroying the right front.

“Where does his paycheck come from?” asked Busch in his interview with SPEED. “He ran into me three times today. My spotter told me I was clear at the time but he wrecked me anyways.”

An unhappy Busch slowed on the track as the race stayed green and retaliated by wrecking Sadler in turn two, causing damage to the rear of his Chevrolet.

Busch, who was leading the owners points coming into Bristol, took his truck to the garage and never returned to the track. Sadler ended up finishing ninth after repairs on pit road.
