Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski have an ongoing feud, and it doesn’t seem like the two drivers like each other very much.
Keselowski complained about the speed of the Toyotas and how they have an unfair advantage, and he said NASCAr hasn’t led a manufacturer get this far ahead since the 1970s.
Busch disputed the claim, and the two have been feuding on social media and on the track in recent weeks. Busch made an appearance on NASCAR Raceday, and he was asked about the feud by Kaitlyn Vincie.
“The root of it was somebody complaining about another team that’s worked hard and that’s found some stuff that’s made their teams fast,” Busch said. “It just comes from one guy, and it just needs to stop and it just needs to be moved on that it goes in cycles.
“We weren’t the ones complaining when we knew that the 2 car had an advantage over the rest of the field when they won their championship. We just had to go to work and try to figure it out, and we were too late when it was said and done when we finally figured it out.”
Vincie also asked Busch about the perceived notion that Toyota has been dominant down the stretch, and he said his and Martin Truex Jr.’s cars have been the fastest all season long. He also said other Toyota teammates—such as Denny Hamlin and Matt Kenseth—are also starting to catch up and run faster than other manufacturers.
Toyotas have certainly dominated this season, though it’s far from a foregone conclusion that a Toyota driver will win the championship. Truex and Busch are certainly the favorites, but drivers such as Keselowski and Kyle Larson both have a chance to win the title.
