Busch parked for hitting official with bottle, disrespecting NASCAR
Story Tools: Print Email
JENNA FRYER / Associated Press
Posted: 5 hours ago



DARLINGTON, S.C. (AP) - Kurt Busch hit the wall on the first lap at Darlington Raceway. Then he hit an official with a water bottle, bad-mouthed NASCAR over his radio and ended up in a closed-door meeting with series officials.

"His actions were certainly not befitting of a champion," NASCAR spokesman Jim Hunter said after the Dodge Charger 500. "He said things that are not fit for print."
Busch, the defending Nextel Cup champion, finished 37th on Saturday night and dropped two spots in the standings to fourth. He now trails leader Jimmie Johnson by 229 points.

Busch knew it was going to be a bad night seconds after the race began. He had started 11th, but didn't even get a full lap in before he spun out coming out of the fourth turn and hit the inside retaining wall.

He took the No. 97 Ford into the garage so his crew could make enough repairs for Busch to continue racing.

Later in the race, NASCAR said Busch moved into the wrong position on the track under caution. Officials ordered him to stop and get in line where he was supposed to be, but Busch refused.

He was sent into the pits for a two-lap penalty, and NASCAR officials took offense to the language he used over the radio. They ordered him to turn his engine off, and he responded my revving it.

He also tossed a water bottle out of his window that hit the official in his pit.

Busch was then summoned to meet with NASCAR after the race. Although series officials looked less than pleased with the champion, Busch emerged from their hauler with a huge grin on his face, but nothing to say.

"What a great race," he grinned. "You guys see that race? It was great."

Best Radio Chatter:
Size 11’s ain’t big enough… During a caution period on lap 195, Dale Jr. registered some suggestions for his team. (Because of the team-swap at DEI, Dale Jr. is driving cars originally prepared for Michael Waltrip.)
Dale Jr.: “This car’s gas pedal needs to be moved down. I’m barely catchin’ it with the top of my foot and it hurts like hell. Y’all gotta move ‘em on all the cars. I’m not as big as Michael. It’s like the gas pedal is a foot off the floor… I need a board or a platform in here!”

Dale Jr. had a bird’s-eye view of a hard crash between two lapped cars on lap 242…
Dale Jr: “Ahahahahahahahah! That was trip! Gollllllllllllleeeeeee! I could see that comin’ from way back.”
Steve Hmiel: “Good job. We were lucky to miss that one.”
Dale Jr.: “Yeeeeeeeeoooooooooowwww! I hope nobody’s hurt. They hit hard there. CRASH! BAM!”

After the crash, there was an animated discussion regarding pit strategy.
Dale Jr: “I’m comin’ in…”
Rondeau: “The leaders are staying out… stay out! Stay out!
Hmiel: “OK, a lot of guys behind the 24 (J. Gordon) came in…”
Dale Jr.: “Awwww. DAMN! I shoulda come in.”
Rondeau: “It was only three laps on those tires.”
Dale Jr: “You don’t understand, man. Three laps here is like 20 anywhere else. I ain’t lyin’!”
Rondeau: “I believe ya. You’ll be OK. Nice job avoiding that wreck. I could tell you could see it comin’ the way you dropped back there.”

The car didn’t react well to a set of tires, and it was a relieved Dale Jr. when a yellow flag came out on lap 317 and saved him from going a lap down.
Dale Jr.: “The car is over on the right front (tire), I really need some help here. I know you hear me, and you’re probably tired of hearing me. I’m drivin’ this damn thing and I’m tired of hearing me too. But, let’s get it better.
After the pit stop…
Dale Jr: “Whhhhooooo! We gained a few spots there… We’ve got some work to do. (making up seemingly random numbers) That felt like 100 pounds of air pressure in the left front. I’d say the right front felt like… 22 pounds and the right rear, oh… I’d say… 45 pounds.”
Rondeau: (laughing) “Alright. We’ll get ‘em now. 50 laps to go…”
Dale Jr: “The stops have been so kick-ass all night, I can’t believe it.”

Today's Stats
Started: 39th
Finished: 8th
Led: --
Points: 9th place (-55 points behind fifth position)
Best Pit Stop: Stop #8 of 11 / 12.68 seconds / lap 234 / 4 tires and fuel [woohoo good job guys]

And people were worried about Smoke as a champ?

Sorry about missing last night; *&#@$#@% cold. (and it seems that if there weren't bad luck, Matt wouldn't have any at all).

In any case, here's the Race for 35th, Darlington Final Update (unofficial results, any penalties may well change this) -

I won't do the full Busch rundown for 30th, but Joe Nemechek didn't do himself any favors by skipping the Busch end of Darlington; the NEMCO #87 Chevy dropped out of the top 30, and he's last in the growing line for the Champ's Provisional there (unless Bobby Labonte decides to go Buschwhacking).

Hey there steve, I figured your cold got to you!! Missed your line-up recaps!!

Better try and get some of that Airborne stuff. If you take that when you feel something coming on it will get rid of it.

Thanks for doing the numbers for us. For the most part the race was kind of a snooze fest until the late stage wrecking started. Mikey and Kurt must have the same horoscope since they both got in trouble last night. Now that I read that article about Kurt I can see why he was so curt with the reporters after his oval office meeting!! I guess it's back to the Rousch charm school for him.

Thanks Pete.

I could use some help drafting. My picks sucked last night.

Thankfully Biffle saved me from going to the dreaded under 200 score with his win and leading most laps. I dropped from 16th to 20th.

Budweiser renews sponsorship with Dale Jr.
By Lee Montgomery, Turner Sports Interactive March 9, 2004
4:42 PM EST (2142 GMT)

Two days after one of the worst races of Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s career, he was celebrating with 7,000 Anheuser-Busch wholesalers in Orlando, Fla.


No, it wasn't a celebration of a 35th-place finish. Instead, Budweiser, Earnhardt Jr. and Dale Earnhardt Inc. announced the signing of a contract extension for the beer-maker to sponsor the No. 8 Chevrolet.

Terms were not announced, but Tony Ponturo, vice president of global media and sports marketing for Anheuser-Busch Inc. said it was a "multi-year" deal.

I saw you cracked the top 10. Congrats! You're flying now.

Ever since the short tracks, I've been doing OK. I've had the winner for 3 weeks in a row and 5 of the 10 races so far this year.

Took me a bit to get my wheels, being a rookie and all, and Texas really slammed me. Had to pick early because I went to the race and picked more out of withfull thinking than common sense. The 24 and the Texas boys did me no good at all.

Enjoyed this race. Was hoping Newman or Kahne would pull the win out. Didn't mind Biffle winning. ALso enjoyed the Waltrip/Green events. Can anyone tell me why Kurt Busch got black flagged for a lap??? I never heard anyone say.

Not sure I know why I voted.

Guess 'cuz you, my friend, asked me to.

No Bronco football right now......maybe I should get interested in NasCar. BTW, we now have four season tickets for the Broncos. Whoo Hoo!!! We just had our will changed to add the tickets to leave to whichever child treats us better. LOL!

Thank you RR!!

LOL on the Bronco tickets.

They are still my favorite team as well. Since we never had a decent team in LA they were my adopted one.
