NASCAR is requiring Kyle Busch to undergo sensitivity training … after he used the R-word in a post-race interview over the weekend.
Officials announced the punishment Monday night … saying Busch will have to complete the training “before the start of the 2022 season.”
Busch used the offensive term after the NASCAR Cup playoff race at Martinsville on Sunday … while he was ranting about fellow driver Brad Keselowski‘s antics on the track.
“It’s frickin’ [r-word], man. So stupid,” Busch said of Keselowski. “I don’t understand these guys. I should beat the s*** out of him right now, is what I should do.”
“But, that doesn’t do me any good, either.”
Busch apologized for the remark hours after the race … saying in a statement on his social media page, “I used a word I should never use and I want to apologize for it.”
This is the second time in the last year NASCAR officials have punished a driver for using the word … Hailie Deegan was also ordered to undergo sensitivity training after she used the term during a virtual race in 2021.
