Kyle Busch Gets a Whipping — Literally
Following Saturday’s truck series Richard Childress is one of the few who can say he beat Kyle Busch – literally.
Childress grabbed Busch – put him in a headlock, and landed several punches before bystanders could separate them.
Childress was angry with Busch after contact with RCR driver Joey Coulter in the closing laps. The latest in a string of incidents between Busch and RCR drivers.
There is no doubt that Richard Childress intended to get Kyle’s attention. Just before the incident Childress was seen slipping his expensive watch into his pocket.
Childress was barred from pit road at Sunday’s STP 400 at Kansas Speedway. NASCAR also told him not to attend the pre-race driver’s meeting.
NASCAR President Mike Helton considered banning Childress from the speedway entirely before deciding that Childress should be allowed to stay as a team owner.
NASCAR officials have indicated that a statement regarding any punishment for Childress would be forthcoming on Monday – a day earlier than most penalties are announced.
What do you think an appropriate punishment would be?
