During Saturday’s Nationwide race at Dover, Kurt Busch may have found himself a new nemesis in young driver Justin Allgaier. According to Busch, Allgaier thought Busch hit him to start the race and was trying to get back at him for it throughout the rest of the afternoon. The two exchanged words after the race before Busch went off on a Sporting News reporter for asking him about it.
As you can see from the clip above that Eye on NASCAR shared with us, Busch was not interested in discussing the day’s events with Sporting News’ Bob Pockrass after the race.

If you could talk about racing things, we could talk about racing things, Bob. You’re in this just to start stuff. That’s all you’re out here for.”
Busch had to be restrained last September after he went after NASCAR.com reporter Joe

Well that didn’t take long, Kurt Busch managed to get himself suspended from next weeks race at Pocono. It seems that getting fired from two race teams and being put on probation this season was enough to wake up Kurt Busch.

Kurt Busch is one of the most talented drivers in NASCAR. He's a former Series champion and winner of over 20 Sprint Cup races. However, he is also one of the biggest jerks in sports.
