Kurt Busch’s tumultuous career took another twist Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway.

In his last race for Phoenix Racing and owner James Finch, Busch looked to be in great shape to go to victory lane running inside the top five and taking the lead on lap 97. His time at the front was brief however as only two laps later, Busch’s Chevy ran out of fuel. Busch spun coming out of turn two and hit the inside wall hard. “I am out of fuel and got wrecked,” Busch said on his team radio.”How can we be out of fuel guys?” he said as the car came to a stop on the backstretch.

From there Busch’s day only got stranger.

After safety personnel rolled up on the scene, Busch exited the car, removed his helmet and began to survey the damage. He then jumped back in the car and while surrounded by safety workers and NASCAR officials Busch, re-fired the car and left the scene, a medical bag on the top of the car tumbling to the ground as he left.
