NASCAR America: Kyle Busch can’t afford mistakes like Watkins Glen accident in playoffs

Kyle Busch's crash with Brad Keselowski at Watkins Glen may have been a racing incident, but he may regret the points it cost him in the standings.

With his win at Pocono Raceway last week, Kyle Busch can afford to be even more aggressive in his driving than usual.

But NASCAR America analysts Slugger Labbe believes this attitude led to the Lap 45 accident between Busch and long-time rival Brad Keselowski at Watkins Glen International. Labbe also asserts Busch can’t have more accidents like this in the looming playoffs.

“As we approach the playoffs I’m sure Kyle Busch is going to rethink some of the moves he’s made,” Labbe said. “He won’t be able to make those mistakes because it’s going to knock him out.”
