Newman, Busch swapping barbs after New Hampshire
Ahh, nothing like a little NASCAR name calling to spice up the week.
All that’s missing is the principal to come break things up.
Busch and Newman are the latest drivers to feud following a dust-up at New Hampshire. Newman was involved in a pair of incidents with the Busch brothers that triggered the verbal sparring immediately after the race.
“I really hated that Kurt got tore up,” Busch said. “I felt like he had the best car. And was proud of them guys but, man, just stupidity. I mean Ryan Newman’s the biggest stupid idiot out here, and he’s a big ogre and can do whatever he wants because he can probably kick anybody’s butt. So no sense in getting in a fight with him, but glad he’s out of a job.”
Newman responded the next day on SiriusXM with some jabs of his own.
“I’m just afraid if I rearranged his face, I might fix it,” he said. “We know that he’s not very bright. He’s a heck of a talent but he’s not very bright. And I’ll leave it at that.”
But wait, there’s more.
It’s 2013. So that means there’s only one way to settle a score. On the track with fenders flying? With fists in the garage?
Busch tweeted a sort-of apology for letting his emotions get the better of him after a tough race.
“I’m not sorry for how I feel in those moments, but could have expressed it better and certainly my comments about someone’s livelihood went too far,” he wrote.

Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfills the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.
