Kyle Busch’s wife blasts Ross Chastain over last lap clash with RCR star at Sonoma

The 2024 NASCAR Cup season has been marked with unfortunate moments for the two times champion Kyle Busch. He hasn’t been consistently in the fight for wins as he used to throughout his career and even, he is upfront contending one incident or another often ruins his races. This week at Sonoma was no different.

Kyle Busch was having a strong day with his Richard Childress Racing No:8 Camry and was comfortably in a position to secure at least a top-10 finish. But things went south as on the final lap, during an attempt to make a pass, Trackhosue Racing’s Ross Chastain’s tier got locked up and he spun Busch out.

The future Hall of Famer’s wife, Samantha Busch, was furious seeing her husband getting spun and eventually finishing P12 instead of a much deserving top-5 finish. She took it to X to share the frustration using a “Schmuck” gif. Samantha Busch is always active on social media and had often shared similar opinions.

“Locked up my tires” aka over drove the corner.

Samantha Busch captioned her post.

A couple of guys there at the end of the race had better tires than we did but we were going to have a good day. Unfortunately, one of those guys got into us on the last lap and ruined our day. It’s frustrating to not get the finish that we deserved.

Kyle Busch said.
