Kyle Busch was not happy with the way Talladega Track President praised the winning truck during a playoff race.
Busch was watching the Truck playoffs race at Talladega, keeping an eye on the performance of John Hunter Nemechek. Given the nature of the superspeedways, anything could happen in such tracks. In fact, multiple trucks crashed across the finish line, which included the car of Nemechek as well as that of the winner Tate Fogleman.
However, Fogleman was not able to do the customary post-race interview because he had to be taken to the infield care centre for the crash during the race.
The track president, Brian Crichton, however, was pleased with how the race went and even made a comment praising the destroyed car of Fogleman. He said:
“That’s the way a truck should look when it finishes a race at Talladega Superspeedway.”

Busch was very displeased with the comments made bhttps://twitter.com/jeff_gluck/status/1444394668238704644y the track president and made his displeasure public by tweeting:
“That’s a pathetic way to sell it.”
While crashes are a part of this sport and especially superspeedways but to praise the crash is something else. Whatever fun and excitement crashes add to the sport, the most important thing is the driver’s health.
Busch is only trying to emphasize this point with his tweet and should be rightly heard.
