Kurt Busch takes ugly car to Martnsville checkers

Great early battle between Kurt Busch and Brad Keselowski
MARTINSVILLE, Va. — Brad Keselowski said he will remember what Kurt Busch did Sunday afternoon at Martinsville Speedway.

Not Busch winning the STP 500 but making contact with Keselowski on pit road less than 50 laps into the race, damaging Keselowski's car and sending him to the garage.

Keselowski finished 31 laps down in 38th, and after Keselowski banged doors with Busch in retaliation for the Lap-41 incident, Busch told his team: "Well, I guess we get to get in a fight afterwards because I’m going to go (expletive) that dude’s (expletive) face up."

When told after the race that Busch wanted to rearrange his face, Keselowski had a response:

“Tell him to come here,” Keselowski said. “I’m right here. He knows where I’m at. Leave victory lane. We’ll go.”

Busch and Keselowski used to be teammates at Penske Racing, where they enjoyed a good relationship. Now? Not so much.

“He does awesome things for charity, and he’s probably the most talented racecar driver,” Keselowski said. “He’s also one of the dumbest. Put those three together.”

Keselowski wasn’t the only one interested in retaliation. Busch said in his postrace news conference that Keselowski over-reacted to a pit-road incident and vowed to retaliate for attempting to ruin his day by trying to flatten his tires.

“He targeted us,” Busch said. “He was aiming for us. He tried to flatten all four of my tires. That’s a no-fly zone. That’s a punk-ass move, and he will get what he gets back when I decide to give it back.”

When told that Keselowski pretty much said the same thing, Busch responded: “That’s great.”
