Kyle Busch slams Ross Chastain: ‘This is your warning’

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (BVM) – Prior to his fight with Noah Gragson after the AdventHealth 400 at Kansas Speedway, Ross Chastain found a way to anger Kyle Busch during the race. 

The two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion made some less-than-friendly comments about Chastain on a radio transmission during the race.

“He’s pissed because I’m pissed that he races like a f—ing a–hole, and so I doored him twice down the backstretch like, ‘This is your warning, boy,’” Busch said on the radio during the race

Busch’s No. 8 car did make contact with Chastain’s No. 1 car around Lap 152 but that was the end of it. Unfortunately, Busch crashed on Lap 163, was unable to finish the race and ended up taking 35th at Kansas Speedway. Busch is currently ranked 12th in the Cup Series standings with 308 points, two wins and three top-five finishes. 

Chastain finished fifth at the AdventHealth 400 but is still atop the Cup Series rankings with 404 points and five top-five finishes. 

After the race, Busch said it wasn’t just Chastain that had upset him, it was the cars and racing in general that were making him mad Sunday. 

“Yeah it wasn’t just him, it was a lot of guys,” Busch said after the race. “It’s just a problem with the cars, a product of the car. You’re three-tenths faster than a guy, you run him down from half a straight away back and you just stall when you get there and you can’t maneuver and you can’t pass so then all they do is block you and pinch you and make you make you burn your tires up and then you get passed by the guy who’s behind you. It’s not what it once was, it’s just terrible racing.” 

Busch’s comments and his moments with Chastain during the race were overshadowed by Chastain’s fight with Gragson after the AdventHealth 400. However, more drama could be on the way with the Cup Series heading to Darlington Raceway this Sunday.
