Ahh, nothing like a little NASCAR name calling to spice up the week.
Kyle Busch called Ryan Newman an “ogre.” Newman threatened to rearrange Busch’s face and “fix it.”
All that’s missing is the principal to come break things up.
Busch and Newman are the latest drivers to feud following a dust-up at New Hampshire. Newman was involved in a pair of incidents with the Busch brothers that triggered the verbal sparring after the race.
Newman was part of a crash that took out race leader Kurt Busch. Later in the race, he made contact with Kyle.
“I really hated that Kurt got tore up,” Busch said. “I felt like he had the best car. And was proud of them guys but, man, just stupidity. I mean Ryan Newman’s the biggest stupid idiot out here, and he’s a big ogre and can do whatever he wants because he can probably kick anybody’s butt. ”
Stewart-Haas Racing is giving Newman the boot at the end of the season to make room for Kevin Harvick.
Newman responded the next day on SiriusXM .
“I’m just afraid if I rearranged his face, I might fix it,” he said. “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.”
But wait, there’s more.
It’s 2013. So that means there’s only one way to settle a score: Twitter.
“I’m not sorry for how I feel in those moments, but could have expressed it better and certainly my comments about someone’s livelihood went too far,” he wrote.
