Jeff Dickerson, co-owner of Spire Motorsports, reminisced about his time as Kyle Busch’s spotter during Busch’s early years in NASCAR. This was before Busch became the well-established driver we know today. Dickerson humorously referred to Busch as “2006 Kyle” rather than the more mature version we see now. He vividly recalled moments when Busch’s fiery temperament would flare up during races. For instance, during a race in Las Vegas, Busch was coming apart. He shared some moments on Dale Jr Download,

“I remember when I was spotting for Kyle. It’s not like 2024 Kyle, I had 2006 Kyle, it was crazy. I remember just being like we’re at Vegas or someplace and he was coming apart and I was egging him on. I was like, ‘you’re the man Kyle. This is stupid, like what the sh*t?'”

“On Sunday morning, I get a call from Ken. He goes, ‘come on in.’ So I walked in and he was just like, ‘you know who you’re spotting for?’ I’m like, ‘yes sir.’ He’s just like, ‘you know, he can be a little hot?’ He’s just like, ‘perhaps we don’t put fire on that flame.’ It was kinda that thing where it’s just like you don’t have to exacerbate a situation. You don’t have to dump fuel on a situation that’s coming apart,” he added.

Kyle Busch vs. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Wreck at North Wilkesboro Speedway

Kyle Busch Makes Major Announcement For Upcoming Charlotte Double Duty Weekend After North Wilkesboro Brawl

  1. Lap One Drama: On the very first lap, Stenhouse, Kyle Busch, and Denny Hamlin went three-wide through the middle of the track. Unfortunately, they ran out of room, and Busch bounced off the outside wall.
  2. Retaliation: On lap two, Kyle Busch drove deep into a corner and tagged Stenhouse in the left rear, sending him into the outside wall. Stenhouse’s car suffered major damage, and he had to limp it to the pit lane. He parked his car in Busch’s pit stall, and the situation escalated.
  3. Stenhouse’s Reaction: Stenhouse climbed out of his car and had a brief word with Busch’s crew chief. NASCAR then instructed him to walk to the infield care center. The incident was unexpected, as aggression usually doesn’t erupt so early in a race.
