Y’all ready for some NASCAR beef? Driver Ryan Newman had some strong words to say about competitor Kyle Busch after Busch referred to Newman as an “idiot” and an “ogre.” Newman appeared on Sirius XM Radio’s NASCAR Channel and shared his less-than-flattering thoughts about Busch (via USA Today):
I’m just afraid if I re-arranged his face I might fix it. He’s frustrated finishing third or wherever he was after hitting me first and then getting a little rub down the straightaway. Just imagine how I feel. It is what it is.
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.
The feud between the two began when Newman drove aggressively during Sunday’s Camping World RV Sales 301, causing Kurt Busch, Kyle’s older brother, to crash. The mini-wreck also involved Matt Kenseth.
More from Newman:
I thought Kurt and Matt and my incident was strictly a racing incident. I admit to (hitting) Kyle down the straightway after he blasted me into the corner. I didn’t crash him. He didn’t crash me. I don’t know what he’s got to be mad about. Evidently he’s got a bone to pick for some reason.
If he’s going to run his mouth, he better be able to back up running his mouth.
