Chase Elliott gained some sort of revenge on Kyle Busch in Tuesday night Truck Series — and then let him know about it.
Chase ended Busch’s seven-race Truck Series winning streak and went away qith the $100k bounty at Charlotte Motor Speedway before mocking Busch’s victory celebration after the race by bowing to the camera.
“Hopefully nobody gets their feelings hurt over it,” Elliott chuckled.
Kyle Busch appeared obviously upset after the race, but it had nothing whatsoever to do with the bow.
He ranted in the interview with Fox.
The interview wasn’t aired live, but Busch said “it sucks when you start the race with broken pieces after you’ve been sitting for six months. There’s going to be some (expletive) talking when I get home.”
Kyle Busch was upset over a splitter problem that caused problems for his No. 51 Toyota all night long.
Later, on a Zoom call, he was informed about Elliott’s bow.
“Imitation is the strongest form of flattery or whatever it is. But, hmmm, that’s cute,” Busch said sarcastically.
“It was a spur of the moment thing,” Elliott said. “I thought we had so much fun with this with Kevin (Harvick) putting up the money and Kyle was a good sport. It’s not a dig at anybody. It’s just having fun. It was about beating him and we did and had some fun with it.”
