The only thing that made Tony angry was what Busch did on Pit Road cuz he could've injured a member of his crew. In fact, Tony stated that Kurt slamming into his car on pit road didn't really upset him. It was the fact that one of his crew was standing there and could've been hurt. So the title of this thread is bogus cuz out of his own mouth he stated that he wasn't mad.

As I have said before, I am fricking sick and tired of Tony being called a cry baby. So what the f^^^ are you crying about? Quit your belly aching.

"Tony is too fat"???? Uh, you don't follow NASCAR much, do you? Things are different this year. Did you recycle your comments from when Jimmy Spencer punched Kurt a few years ago?

Look for Kurt to get a huge fine, suspension, and a lecture from his team owner and sponsor. He'll do the full Swaggart, just like he did after messing with Jimmy Spencer. If your sponsor drops you, then you're done racing.

Busch did the most moronic thing I've seen in a long time in Nascar. It's one thing to use your car as a weapon on the track against other cars (not that I'm condoning that) there are men rushing around trying to do their jobs and unprotected to boot. That was so cowardly on Busch's part.
In my opinnion, Busch just won the Tool of Week award and he is darn lucky someone on the 20 crew didn't drag him from his car by the scruff of the neck and lay a thumping on him....darn lucky.
Nice to see Nascar step up and bannish him for the rest of the race as well.

al i can say, if I had been the crew member that was alomst hit, Ipull kurt out of that car and kick his ass for sure. What he did on pit road was just wrong , im not a fan of either, but you dont do things like this in pit road where people could be hurt or worse. Glad NASCAR sit him down right away. He needs a few weeks off for that

Has anyone seen the replay on NASCAR.COM ? Kurt was rolled up along side of Tony. He was not going fast enough to hurt anybody.

Just curious. Were Tony's fans outraged and applauding his probation when he did virtually the same thing that Kurt did yesterday? Like I said, just curious.

nothing was rolling up along side he hit the #20 then slid to where Jason Lee was standing moments before he Jump on the hood. and when you have a 3400lbs cars sliding around you can hurt someone who does not have anything to protect them ,but a helment firesuit and boots. What if he was crushed between the cars or his leg was traped. Wake up it was a stupid play in Kurts part. He could have hurt someone really bad.

He almost took out one of Tony's crew members. Not going fast enough has nothing to do with it. It is called a time and a place for certaim things and this was neither the time nor the place for Busch's little tantrum. He is lucky he didn't get his skull beaten in....really.
Someone could have been hurt period and it wouldn't have been Busch cause he had his car protecting him.!

Tony didn't take his car and ram it into another car endangering another teams crew member. Tony just voiced his fustration. Big diffrance I applaud Tony for voices it we have had clean races sence then. far less Debris Cautions then we have had. Truex gettting a 4 second lead and no flag to round them back up. Also if your talking about tony driving rough its on the track. when the driver has the armor of a car around him not metal vs skin but metal vs metal. They plan for the cars to get beat up and wrecked why do you think we got the newer cars now safety but you cant go after a crew member with nothing to protect him.

I remeber that and your are correct there was no crew member in the way or around. I think it was Dover 2001 he did that if I am not mistaken but there is alot to remember about Smoke you are right about that.

I watched the video on NASCAR.com about 5 times last night and I have yet to see where Tony didn't give him enough room. Tony followed the line he was on through the turn and got tapped by Busch in the left rear and then Busch pulled up beside Tony and took him to the wall. Getting hit by a car at 10 miles an hour still breaks bones and injures people. Busch's conduct on pitroad was inexcuseable. Sitting out a few races will give him time realize that for every action there is a reaction to be prepared for. Think before you act.

Totally agree. The only issue that needs to be addressed is the sliding into pit road. He doesn't have to be going fast to hurt someone. Nascar parked him, but that only cost him a couple of spots at best. I can see another 100 point penalty here. A suspension would also be in order just to make it really hard on him to make the Chase. You can't mess with the safety of people not protected by a roll cage and 3400lb car.

It was in 2001 at Bristol, not his rookie year nor at Dover. Jeff pulled a bump and run on Tony on the last lap and Tony's response was to spin his car as they came into the pits after the checkered flag. And there were plenty of people in the area...officials out to inspect the incoming cars, crew members celebrating and coming over the wall to congratulate the winner. Is that really any different than what Kurt did yesterday? Both incidents could have injured those not involved in the "dispute"...
