Stenhouse even threw a punch, igniting a scuffle that involved both drivers’ crew members. The tension had been building up, fueled by past encounters and Busch’s ongoing criticism of Stenhouse.

“I wrecked him one time at Daytona and he’s kind of badmouthed me ever since then. I feel like we get along with each other OK outside the race track, I talk to him quite a bit and I’m not sure why he was so mad that I shoved it three-wide but he hit the fence and kind of came off the wall and ran into me and I don’t know, when I was talking to him he kept saying that I wrecked him.”

During the race, on a high-speed track like Daytona, every move matters. On Lap 2, Kyle Busch and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. found themselves in a precarious situation. Stenhouse bumped Busch’s car, and in retaliation, Busch made contact with Stenhouse’s No. 47 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. The impact sent Stenhouse into the wall, effectively ending his race.
