Kyle Busch was involved in an on-race incident with Kevin Harvick on the final Round of 8 race at Martinsville Speedway.
Harvick was edging closer to missing out on a place for the Championship 4 race at Phoenix. He was trying hard to pass Busch in the last lap but ended up spinning Busch’s car as he couldn’t pass him.
Speaking about the incident, Busch said:
“The fact of the matter was that he ran me down for the last five laps of the race! I was shocked because I was pushing as hard as I can go because I needed to stay ahead and not let him get to me.”
Well, it was not only the No. 18 driver shocked by No. 4’s move but Busch himself had some surprise for Harvick during the incident.
“He was on my bumper a little bit off of Turn 2 (on the last lap). If I go in on the bottom, he was just gonna root me out of the way and push me on the stuff. So I kind of went in high into Turn 3, and I think I shocked him.”
Ultimately, Harvick missed out on a Championship 4 race spot.
