Kyle Busch Forced To Take Sensitivity Training After Using Derogatory Word

Following Sunday’s NASCAR Cup playoff race at Martinsville Speedway, driver Kyle Busch was doing an interview when the reporter asked him about the race, in which he finished second.

Busch didn’t like how Brad Keselowski made a move to pass him on the final straight, which you can see in the last few seconds of the video below. Alex Bowman ended up taking home the W that day.

He spoke of his frustration in the post-race interview, saying, “I mean, where was he going? What was he going to do? Spin me out? He was trying to do a Harvick is what he was trying to do. For what? For second place? For what? He wasn’t going to transfer through with that. Freaking [R-word], man. I don’t understand these guys. I should beat the (expletive) out of (Keselowski) right now, is what I should do, but that doesn’t do me any good either.”

Shortly after the interview, Busch took to Twitter and wrote, “In one of my post-race interviews I used a word I should never use and I want to apologize for it.”

Because of the derogatory term he used, NASCAR announced they are requiring him to take sensitivity training before the 2022 season begins.
