Kyle Busch takes shots at Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

Kyle Busch explains why it should have been a busy Monday for Ricky Stenhouse Jr. after Daytona and adds that he "can't worry about people that far back in the field."

SPARTA, Kentucky — Kyle Busch had harsh words for Ricky Stenhouse Jr. a week after Stenhouse’s contact wrecked Busch at Daytona International Speedway.

Busch said Friday at Kentucky Speedway he was “disappointed” that Stenhouse did not reach out to him.

Asked why, Busch said: “He wiped out half the field. Pretty sure there would be a pretty busy Monday for him but there wasn’t. So, apparently he just doesn’t care.”

Asked if he this would change how he raced Stenhouse, Busch said: “I can’t worry about people that far back in the field.”

NBCSN’s Marty Snider reached out to Stenhouse before Friday’s final practice but Stenhouse said he didn’t have anything to add at the moment.
Busch crashed after Stenhouse came up to side draft him but hit him and sent Busch into the wall. Busch was eliminated in the crash that collected six other cars. Busch finished 33rd.

Stenhouse took the blame for the incident with Busch.

“I was just really aggressive, trying to keep my track position,” Stenhouse said after the race.
