Today’s Sprint Cup race at Kentucky Speedway was marred by a large wreck caused by driver Kurt Busch. Competitors Greg Biffle and Brad Keselowski had their cars wrecked, but thankfully no serious injuries were suffered.

The wreck began when Busch hit the back of Keselowski’s car during Lap 48, a hit which caused Keselowski to spin in front of Biffle’s car. The two collided at full speed, resulting in a scary fireball that looked far worse than it actually was.

Busch admitted responsibility for the wreck over the radio to his crew. In what was an attempt at a classy act of good sportsmanship, he apologized to Keselowski and Keslowski’s team after the race. Even though Busch was apologetic, Keselowski till seemed peeved, venting about about aggressive drivers and saying that Busch should have been more aware of the track. As reported by ESPN, Keselowski said after the race:

“I know he didn’t intentionally wreck me. But this track has bad bumps down there and there’s no reason to go down there, but he [Busch] still did.”

Impressively, both Keselowski and Biffle returned to the race later despite the damage to their vehicles. Also involved in the wreck were Travis Kvapil, Dave Blaney, Paul Menard, and Landon Cassill.
