Kyle Busch wasn't very complimentary of fellow NASCAR driver Ryan Newman after Sunday's Camping World RV Sales 301 at New Hampshire. Busch called Newman "a big ogre" and "the biggest stupid idiot out here" before proclaiming he was glad Newman was out of a job.From the SiriusXM post-race show:“Ryan Newman is the biggest stupid idiot out here," Busch said. "He’s a big ogre and can do whatever he wants because he can probably kick anybody’s butt. So no sense getting in a fight with him. Glad he’s out of a job."Yahoo! Sports has more on the scoop:The topic of Newman came up when Busch started talking about older brother Kurt, who qualified second and ran up front until he crashed with Newman on lap 226. However, the wreck started when Kurt Busch passed Matt Kenseth low on the entry to turn one and slid up in front of Kenseth on the inside of Newman. With Kenseth right on Kurt Busch's bumper, the back end of Kurt Busch's car slid around and Newman got wrecked in the process.Newman said he was disappointed in what he referred to as aggressive driving immediately following restarts and subtly blamed contact from Kyle and Kurt Busch as cause for the accident.“We just got whacked by a bunch of guys,’’ Newman said. “(Kyle Busch) hit me first. (Brad Keselowski) hit me next and then I guess it was Kurt that went underneath ... clipped us and knocked us into the fence and took himself out. I guess (Matt Kenseth) had a little influence on it. We kind of were in a bad spot having a little bit older tires.’’Newman is currently without a team for next season after it was officially announced on Friday that Kevin Harvick would be driving the No. 4 car for Stewart-Haas racing in 2014. Kurt Busch doesn't have a team lined up for next year either, though, making him and Newman arguably the top two drivers with expiring contracts at the end of 2013.Kyle Busch and Newman don't necessarily have any bad blood between them, making the comments by Busch on Sunday a bit odd, but Kurt Busch and Newman do. At Darlington last May, Kurt Busch peeled through Newman's pit box, inciting his crew, and hitting Newman's car on pit road after the race. Those events led to a mini melee of sorts, with Busch screaming at Newman's crew and Newman saying after the race that Busch's "chemical imbalance speaks for itself."So, maybe Kyle is just sticking up for his brother here?
