I am Pickswise's NASCAR expert, also make picks on MLB, NHL, and both college football and basketball. Very passionate about sports, especially college football and college basketball. I have followed NASCAR since I was little. I am a 2018 graduate of Michigan State Universities School of Journalism.

NASCAR is back and better than ever, and so is defending Cup Series Champion Kyle Busch. He was able to finish second in last Wednesday’s Toyota 500, but en route to that finish he had a bit of a dust-up with a fellow driver. That driver was none other than NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver Chase Elliott. Both drivers have had a talk, but it’s just another example of the many times Busch has had a run-in with other drivers. Kyle has a history of dust-ups throughout NASCAR. Here’s a look at some of his most memorable run-ins.

The Hornaday-Busch Rivalry

Kyle Busch is no doubt one of the greatest drivers to ever climb behind a wheel, but he hasn’t always gone about racing in a smart and safe way. Which brings up one of his most memorable rivalries. His run-in with NASCAR Hall of Famer and multi-time Truck Series Champion Ron Hornaday Jr. was one of his lowest moments.  The incident occurred at Texas Motor Speedway in 2011, and it certainly didn’t sit well with NASCAR or the fans. It’s not only resulted in multiple fines, but he was also suspended from the rest of the Truck races that season. He nearly lost his ride at Joe Gibbs Racing in the cup series.

Busch-Team Penske Rivalry is always around

Kyle Busch has had plenty of major rivals over the years. There is one that remains constant and that is against Team Penske drivers. Whether it was his run-ins with Brad Keselowski or even battling former teammate Joey Logano for championships. The Busch-Keselowski story has many chapters. It has been written across all three NASCAR series. Brad Keselowski once called Busch out for being a dick during his introduction at Bristol Motor Speedway, all the way back in 2010. They have had plenty of battles, and this story is far from over.

Run-ins with NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver

Busch and Chase Elliott had a nice talk about Wednesday night’s incident. Which is better for the long run, but in the fan’s eyes, he definitely won’t have any love from the Elliott faithful. That wasn’t his first dust-up with the Most Popular Driver in NASCAR. Flashing back to 2008 at Richmond, and Busch in his much younger days wrecked Dale Earnhardt Jr. That was a day Earnhardt fans will never forget. It just seems to be in Busch’s nature to have run-ins with some of NASCAR’s most popular drivers. Elliott wasn’t happy after the race and showed his displeasure, but hopefully, he can move on from the drama, and this Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 can be a special night for all of NASCAR.
