Ricky Stenhouse’s Perspective

Stenhouse shared his side of the story: “I felt like Kyle and I have always raced each other really hard back to the Nationwide Series when we were competing for wins week in and week out. Never had any issues. I wrecked him one time at Daytona, and he’s kind of badmouthed me ever since then.”

He continued, “So definitely just built-up frustration with how he runs his mouth all the time about myself, but I know he’s frustrated because he doesn’t run near as good as he used to. We’re a single-car team over here and working really hard to get better each weekend.”

Kyle Busch’s Reaction

Busch appeared uninjured by the punch, and it wasn’t immediately clear if Stenhouse’s fist made serious contact. However, the tension between the two drivers was palpable. Busch’s crew members made it clear they didn’t want Stenhouse’s team near their hauler.

In the end, Joey Logano won the race after leading 199 of 200 laps. But the real drama unfolded between Stenhouse and Busch, leaving fans buzzing about the intense rivalry.
