Video: Kyle Busch mockingly takes ride to the infield care center at Texas

Kyle Busch is known for his sarcasm. The 2015 NASCAR Cup champion, most recently known for his “Everything is great” comment after a meeting with NASCAR a week after a pit road tussle with Joey Logano, has never been one to shy away from saying what’s on his mind.

Friday at Texas Motor Speedway Busch did a bit more than make a sarcastic comment.

With 42 minutes left in the 2.5 hour Cup lone practice Friday, Busch got loose on the exit of turn 2, with the back of his Toyota just brushing the outside wall.  He made it back to the garage with very little damage. The team debated whether to go to a back-up car, eventually deciding to keep the primary car but electing to skip qualifying later in the day. Busch will start from the rear of the field.

With NASCAR’s new concussion protocol if doctors deem it necessary drivers must make a visit to the infield care center. Despite the relatively soft brush with the wall, Busch was ordered to visit the car center.  He obliged, leaving his garage stall, laying down on the golf cart used to transport patients, and took the ride to the care center. He was checked and released.
