Kyle Busch had strong words regarding the racing between he and Corey Lajoie at Martinsville. Busch, grabbing his second win at Talladega this past weekend, may be in a more forgiving mood now, but probably not.
- Kyle Busch says “He’s (Lajoie) been a pain in the D*** to race with.” After contact between he and Lajoie at Martinsville.
- Rowdy explained that Lajoie seems to race him 20% harder when he is a lap down while trying to get past him. Busch would also explain that he isn’t sure why Lajoie, who mentioned that he turned down into Busch on purpose on his Stacking Pennies podcast, didn’t get penalized like Hamlin did after he admitted to turning into Chastain on purpose at Phoenix on his Actions Detrimental Podcast.
- Busch is an outspoken driver, mentioning earlier in the season that the sense of respect was gone from the garage area. This is another incident to further his belief on that.

This exchange comparing Busch to Ryan Newman took a comedic turn.

It is interesting that Lajoie didn;t receive a penalty similar to Hamlin for doing essentially the same thing. Kyle Busch echoed the same sentiment from a lot of drivers in the garage about the “Consistency of inconsistency” when it comes to the governing body.
With KFB’s win at Talladega, surely he can’t still be mad about Martinsville right? That’s totally not how Rowdy rolls.
