Busch, he said, "raced me like a clown all day."
Harvick, unapologetic, said that on several occasions during the Homestead race, Busch "cut me off and ran up in front of me."
"The last time, I just didn't lift," Harvick said.
"Three-wide, on the back bumper, running into me – I just had enough," Harvick repeated.
Busch's teammate Denny Hamlin, sitting next to Harvick in the media center, couldn't help but interject after hearing Harvick's words (Harvick's actions resulted in Hamlin being trapped one lap down, effectively ending his championship hopes).
"Sounds like how your teammates raced me all day," Hamlin told Harvick.
Responded Harvick: "I just parked yours."
Busch was obviously unhappy with the incident and said despite an attempt to clear the air with Harvick before the race began, he ended up wrecked.
"It's very unfortunate," Busch said. "It's just a guy that doesn't have his head on straight apparently today. I thought everything was good.
"I talked to him in the pre-race, in the driver's meeting and all of that, but he's such a two-faced guy it just doesn't matter."
