Kyle Busch calls Ryan Newman an Ogre

After the NASCAR Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Kyle Busch called Ryan Newman a big Ogre. Kyle was asked about how strong his brother was and if he would have been able to race him for the win if he hadn't wrecked. Kyle finished the race in second place.

Kurt Busch had led a race high 103 laps and looked to be a contender for the win before getting into Ryan Newman and Matt Kenseth.

Kyle Said, “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. So no sense in getting in a fight with him, but glad he's out of a job."

Where did that come from? Apparently, Kyle thought that Ryan wrecked his brother even though no one else that so.

It is odd that Kyle would come to his brothers defense especially since Kurt and Matt Kenseth who were both involved in the incident didn’t think Ryan had anything to do with it. It was a racing incident between them not Ryan.

Well an Ogre is a mythical large, hideous, humanoid monster having a large head, abundant hair and beard, a voracious appetite, and a strong body.

Well since Kyle Busch opened the door, in the name of good fun, here are the five biggest ogres in NASCAR. What do you expect during an off week when someone floats something as bizarre as calling someone an Ogre. Enjoy!

Jeff Gordon, not an Ogre, went all Ogre on Clint Bowyer last year. He showed us that everyone has a little Ogre in them.

Kurt Busch showed that he was the biggest Ogre of them all when he disrespected Dr. Jerry Punch of ESPN. Kurt went to an Ogre psychologist and had the Ogre removed. Some people don’t believe that the Ogre is gone and are patiently waiting for it to return. It looks like it might be a long wait.

Tony Stewart matches the description of an Ogre more than any of the other drivers. Tony is not an Ogre unless of course you are blocking him or he thinks you are.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is not an Ogre. Some people think he, of all the drivers needs to let his inner Ogre out from time to time.

Kyle Busch went all Ogre on Ron Hornaday Jr. at Texas a few years back. He had to sit out two races while attending Ogre reform school. Now he is apparently the designated Ogre patrolman.

Besides his boss Tony Stewart, Ryan Newman looks a little like an Ogre but Ryan generally shaves. Ryan is now planning on when he can let his inner Ogre out on Kyle Busch.
