NASCAR Nastiness: Kyle Busch Suspended From Race After Intentional Wreck

How bad a NASCAR driver would you have to be to NOT be able to make a wreck look like an accident? Pretty bad, we guess, but that’s what happened to veteran driver Kyle “Sideswipe” Busch, who had to sit and watch this past weekend’s Sprint Cup and Nationwide races from the pits after deliberating wrecking championship contender Ron Hornaday Jr. in the Camping World Truck Series race held on the same track Friday night.

Busch’ primary sponsor, candy company M&M Mars, issued a statement saying it was “disappointed” in the driver, adding: “The recent actions by Kyle Busch are not consistent with the values of M&M’s and we’re very disappointed.  Like you, we hold those who represent our brand to a higher standard and we have expressed our concerns directly to Joe Gibbs Racing.” Watch video of the incident below:
