NASCAR sends Kyle Busch to sensitivity training to use R-words during interview

NASCAR driver Kyle Busch has been ordered to undergo sensitivity training before the start of 2022 to use an insensitive expression during an interview after Sunday’s race in Martinsville.

Busch complained about being hit by Brad Keselowski when his rival made a desperate move to pass him on the final stretch.

“I mean, where was he going? What was he going to do? Spin me out? He was trying to make a Harvick, is that what he was trying to do. For what? To second place? For what? He did not want to go on with it. Freaking retarded, man, ” said Busch.

None of the playoff drivers were in a position to advance to Championship 4 at Sunday’s final in Phoenix, but a second-place finish would have put Busch through if race winner Alex Bowman had been penalized for any violations during the overtime inspection.

Busch later tweeted, “In one of my post-race interviews, I used a word I should never use and I would like to apologize for that,” but the series said the language violated its guidelines for behavior.

Busch was not fined and will be allowed to compete in Phoenix on Sunday, November 7th.
