Kyle Busch drives the No.18 Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing as a full-time NASCAR Cup Series driver and also competes part-time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driving the No.51 Toyota Tundra for his own team Kyle Busch Motorsports and during his most recent outing at Nashville Superspeedway in the Ally 400, he struggled to keep with the pack and finished 21st and he grabbed everyone’s attention including NASCAR veteran who worked as a spotter for Clint Bowyer, Elliott Sadler, and Jeff Burton Brett Griffin when he called his car useless.
Brett Griffin also had in mind that Kyle Busch is a two-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion in 2015 and 2019 and also won the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2009 including wins in the Coca-Cola 600, Southern 500, Brickyard 400, and also in the iconic All-Star Race and he also happens to be the face of the sport according to Griffin after having acquired multiple victories in all three series, 60 in the Cup Series with one this season at Bristol, 102 wins in the Xfinity Series and 62 in the Truck Series.
Although Kyle Busch isn’t just famous for his skills behind the wheel, he is also known for his volatility in interviews and podcasts and what not, yet he speaks, in all honesty, is what spotter Brett Griffin thinks about the 37-year-old hailing from Nevada, and with the playoffs coming within a couple of months, Busch is safe with a victory but with the number of winners this season, it is pretty safe to have a second one under his belt to confirm his spot to qualify for the playoffs.
“I’ll give him props for telling everybody that,” Kyle Busch gets backed by Brett Griffin for his language on the team radio
Brett Griffin started off by calling Kyle Busch the best active driver and the face of the sport and also added that he is an amazing driver behind the wheel with his talent and love for the sport and also a racer who is pretty open about what he feels and goes through during the race and he also added that he does not hold himself back when talking about his races and during the Ally 400 at Nashville, he happened to be unfortunate with his car not being able to keep up which he conveyed in an explicit way to his team on the radio.
“I think that the best personality in our sport and for our sport is Kyle Busch. He’s one of the best race car drivers, he’s one of the best guys to give you good quotes. One of the best guys to tell you what he thinks. At that moment in time wall-riding at Nashville, he thought his car was the biggest piece of sh*t out there,” said Brett Griffin on Kyle Busch.
He further added by saying that for the kind of person he is, he wasn’t at fault for what happened on the team radio and also substantiated Busch by saying that in an intense race, which Nashville is pretty renowned for at this time of the year, people often tend to say things which they don’t actually mean most of the times and it is just said in the heat of the moment and no driver ever thinks about his words before he speaks while racing at high speeds in packs where endurance and physical agility are crucial to stay safe.
“So, I’ll give him props for telling everybody that. The thing is, what was said over the radio, we’re in the middle of a game. We’re in the middle of a competition and we don’t always have the ability to stop and think ‘What I’m about to say, a bunch of people are going to listen. A bunch of people are going to tweet it and want to talk about it,’” concluded Brett Griffin while corroborating for Kyle Busch.
Despite having a victory at Bristol Motor Speedway, Kyle Busch apparently requires a second win to reinforce his spot in the playoffs while standing 4th in the points table.
