Kyle Busch left Darlington a bit annoyed after he was eliminated early in Sunday’s Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.

The incident was sparked after Kyle Busch made contact with Austin Dillon, which sent the No. 18 car sliding hard into the wall.

However after exiting the infield care center, The Joe Gibbs Racing driver said the fault for his night was not on Austib Dillon, but rather it was on his team JGR for bringing a car that wasn’t very good to compete.

“Wasn’t [Austin Dillon]’s fault,” Busch lamented. “Just take our lumps. We’re running like shit and we got wrecked. So, that’s what you get when you run like shit. Just shouldn’t be there. I don’t know what our problem is.”

“We were running like (S***),” he said after his 35th-place finish. “We got wrecked. It’s what you get when you run like (S***)”

“I don’t know what our problem is, but every time I go to sim and use sim and think we had a good sim session, we go to the race track and we suck,” he said. “So, I’m done with that. We’ll have to use some other tools on figuring out how to be good.”

“The car was dead-dog tight. Couldn’t do anything with it. You don’t deserve to be wrecked. When you’re running with the S*** you get S*** on.”

Kyle Busch was the second playoff driver to see his race end after a wreck. after Michael McDowell finished last in the 37-car field when he was wrecked on Lap 31.
