Kyle Busch had the best car at Dover and yet was forced to make a late pit stop in order to finish the race. Despite leading the most laps, Kyle Busch finished seventh.
When Busch finished the race he let loose with a flurry of unkind words directed at Toyota Racing Development.
“Thank you, TRD,” he said sarcastically. “[expletive] us out of another one. Piece of [expletive], mother [expletive].”
Wednesday TRD president Lee White took issue with the words of Busch.
As Jim Utter of Thats Racin reports White had the following to say in response to Busch.
”We’re as frustrated as he was that he didn’t win that race considering how many laps he led, considering he and Denny (Hamlin) both literally dominated the race. We’re as disappointed as he was. However, we’ve got used to saying ‘That’s just Kyle, you know’ But this is a bit of a special case,” White said.
“We’re extremely disappointed in his negative comments and the tone of the comments after the event. It is under discussion as we move forward. We certainly are very disappointed, having said that, Kyle is an amazing talent in a race car and he takes it very personally when something goes wrong and he loses a race he thinks he should have won.
“I’m not going to aplogize for TRD. We went there and qualified three out of the top five. We led a gazillion freaking laps. We should have won the race but circumstances didn’t work out that way and I’m sorry. We don’t have anything to apologize for. The thing I am most disappointed in is TRD is not some separate entity – we are Toyota. We are a global company. Every person globally shares in our passion for winning and competing – and that’s hundreds of thousands of people. All those people and their families basically had their feelings hurt by those comments last week.
Busch is one of the most colorful drivers to listen to on the scanner. This is not the first time comments from Busch has ruffled the feathers of
White also said that he looks to talking to team owner Joe Gibbs about the comments of Busch.

To me, Sunday's race was kind of a typical Dover race. We had five cautions, but we had some long green-flag runs that equated to a couple of sets of green-flag pit stops.
The three big storylines that I took out of it:
1. We had a driver that led more than 300 laps of this race. If you look at the first eight years of the Chase, a Chase driver always won the Dover race. But...
