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:
Nope, you really don’t need to know much about this story, other than the fact that Joshua Greene, 27, is from Parkersburg, W.Va., and was nabbed shortly after the race in Bristol, TN. Oh, and when the cops located him in his car after his dash in the nude, his girlfriend was in there with a live raccoon which she had “rescued” from a park.
No word if the grill outside was warming up yet or not.
According to cops, who for some reason let him off with a ticket to appear in court later, he was going more than 80 MPH over the posted speed limit of 45 mph. Think you’d be a free man at this point if you did the same thing in your neighborhood on the way to work today? Someone try that and let us know how it works out for you. At least Busch had a good excuse: he was test driving a new sports car.
