Kyle Busch said that he feels like crap for having won at Texas since it came at the cost of Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Martin Truex Jr.
Busch finally got his 2020 win, protecting his streak of at least one win throughout his Cup career. However, he has already been eliminated from the 2020 Playoffs. As for Truex, who finished second, a win would have meant a place in the Championship 4. Speaking in light of the situation, Busch said:
“Yeah, I mean, it’s really cool. I take that back. I feel like crap.”
“The 19 needed to win a race, obviously, in order to move on and punch their ticket to the Championship Round, and I’m that guy that spoils it for them.”
“You know, I’m thinking of that as we’re coming down to the finish, too, but I’m like, I’ve got to win, man.
Busch said that while he would like his JGR teammate to win at Martinsville but he would also be competing for a win there.
“Hopefully they can go out there and do well, maybe win again. I’d like to win Martinsville. It would really suck again if he finishes second to me, but that would be 2020, wouldn’t it?”
