Kyle Busch scored the second win of his abbreviated Cup season tonight, but it was not all happiness in Victory Lane—on-track security and Joe Gibbs Racing team members had to restrain him from attempting to smash the Crosley Jukebox trophy awarded to the winner.
|I guess it only takes one person to|
think its a good idea...
“Oh come on, I love smashing musical trophies!”, a dejected Busch said while being held back by crew chief Adam Stevens. “We’re not even that far away from Nashville—come on guys, let me be cool again!”
Busch infamously smashed a custom Sam Bass-painted Gibson guitar trophy after winning a race at Nashville Superspeedway. The “celebration” was roundly criticized by fans and members of the sport alike, and seemed to only be truly enjoyed by Busch himself.
“Let me at least throw some Crispy M&M’s at it, come on, guys!”, Busch said. “I totally can pick it up—yes, even with my busted leg. Hey, I got injured and came back with two wins, maybe tweaking my back would make me indomitable!”
Upon being calmed down (and promising Joe Gibbs that he would stay put), Busch was finally able to enjoy his latest win.
“Well, if I don’t get to smash it, at least I’ll get to listen to some tunes”, Busch explained. “In fact, I’ll use it to drown out the media talk about a Danica-Dale Jr. rivalry.”
