NASCAR Requires Kyle Busch to Attend Sensitivity Training

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer

Kyle Busch will be required to attend sensitivity training before the start of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series campaign.

NASCAR announced Monday the 2015 champion must complete this after using the r-word which violated NASCAR’s conduct guidelines.

After failing to make the Championship 4 during Sunday’s Xfinity 500 at Martinsville Speedway, an irate Busch vented his frustrations on Brad Keselowski to the media bullpen.

Busch slammed Keselowski for racing him hard when he didn’t have a shot of fighting for the championship this Sunday at Phoenix Raceway. Especially in the final corner where Busch was turned around.

Thus, creating the latest chapter of their long and bitter rivalry.

“(Brad) drilled my ass coming out of (Turn) 4 for no reason. Where was he going? What was he going to do? Spin me out? He was trying to do a “Harvick” for second place,” Busch explained.

“He wasn’t going to transfer through with that! Just freakin’ r******* man. So stupid. I don’t understand these guys.

“I should beat the shit out of him right now, but that doesn’t do me any good either.”

Hours after the race, Busch would sent out an apology tweet:

Busch becomes the second NASCAR driver required to attend training for using such derogative word this year. Camping World Truck Series rookie Hailie Deegan had to complete training after using the same word during a Twitch stream in January.
