Busch’s All-Star struggles continue at Charlotte
Question of the Day
It was the fifth time in nine All-Star race appearances that Busch did not finish the event.
“I hate that we’re out this early,” Busch said. “But you’re trying to race hard and protect that average finish that you’re supposed to have for the last segment and trying to pass as many cars as you can. I was going to have two right there getting into Turn 3. Those are the opportunities you have to take in the All-Star race.”
Busch said being aggressive “bit me in the rear.”
Busch qualified second earlier Saturday and won the first segment, putting him in good position early.
But he might have gotten a little greedy.
He tried to make a run on the top of the track, but older brother Kurt slowed up, forcing him to the low side of the track. The younger Busch tried to get around Clint Bowyer but the two cars touched, spinning out Busch in a wreck that collected Joey Logano.
“The No. 41 (Kurt Busch) got in the fence on the outside and forced his hand and then (Kyle Busch) tried to push me,” Bowyer said on the radio. “I don’t know how I didn’t wreck. His brother forced his hand.”
“They were racing hard in front of me and the 18 car spun out there,” Logano said. “I thought he was going to stay up by the wall and I kind of committed to running that bottom and I was trying to slow up as quick as I could, but once he started coming down the race track I kept trying to turn lower and lower and hoped he would go back up the race track and never did.”
EARNHARDT’S DUMP TRUCK: Dale Earnhardt Jr. was frustrated all night with the setup of his No. 88 Chevy.
“Yeah, I’ve been driving a damn dump truck for two weeks, man. I don’t know what’s going on,” Earnhardt said.
