The crowd showered Busch with boos because he's sandbagging in a junior race. It's not an admirable trait for any athlete to compete in an event below their skill level.

(verb: Sandbagging (grappling), competing in a skill-bracket or being ranked lower than one is deemed capable of.)

A race is a race is a race. You have mediocre drivers, good drivers and top of the line excellent drivers. Would you consider it sandbagging if a great quarterback played on the field with players below his skill level?(verb: Compete, to strive against others to win something; to vie with.)

"Skill-bracket" was the key term there.

Payton Manning playing Saturday Arena League games to pad his touchdown total would be as pathetic a Kyle Busch racing Nationwide. It would be like Phil Mickelson paying in a junior tournament. I could go on an on with these examples. The bottom line is, if you have the skill to compete at the highest level, don't sandbag in the developmental league.
