Kyle Busch Blasts Atlanta re-banking

Labeling the reconfiguration of Atlanta Motor Speedway as brainless, an angry Kyle Busch vociferously joined a chorus of NASCAR stars miffed they weren’t consulted about the 1.54-mile oval’s makeover.

In closing a blistering news conference Saturday night after winning at Atlanta (in likely the final start of his Xfinity career), Busch asked Speedway Motorsports executive Don Hawk for a chunk “of the real asphalt, so I can cherish what the real Atlanta is like” in one of several digs he took at management.

“I sure am glad to win the final Xfinity Series race on a real Atlanta racetrack,” Busch said.  NBC Sports
