Kurt Busch is not exactly known for being calm and rational. During Saturday’s race at Darlington, Busch’s rage was on display for the entire nation that happened to listen to him on the scanner. If you weren’t able to hear that, this video lets you into the troubled mind of Kurt Busch.
Good thing that thing is censored, otherwise I think a lot of people would be scarred for life. This is not the first time Busch has had a meltdown and it will not be his last. I honestly think he has some sort of disease. He is always irrational, always angry, and always in the middle of controversy.
I think the pressure of driving for an under funded team is finally getting to him. He has no shot of making the Chase or probably even winning a race. His best bet is to survive this season and hitch a new ride for next year. Maybe Jeff Burton moves on and Richard Childress needs a new driver if Austin Dillon isn’t ready.
Then again, Kurt Busch and Kevin Harvick on the same race team? That would either end with multiple wins and titles or a bloodbath. I think either one would be highly entertaining. There is no love lost between the two, so it would be something to keep an eye on.
As always, Kurt Busch is one of the most polarizing figures in NASCAR. He has all the talent, but can he ever control his temper?
