Kyle Busch is obviously upset… and I’m not sure that I blame him for feeling that way, after himself and Joe Gibbs Racing teammates Martin Truex Jr and Denny Hamlin spun around on the seventh lap of Sunday’s Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, significantly damaging both of the top-two drivers in the running order.
The two-time NASCAR Cup Series Champion was clearly upset with the sanctioning body and the decision-making process, making contact with the pace car under the caution flag, driven by Kip Childress, which actually caused some damage to the left rear corner of the Toyota Camry XSE.
@ChuckTamato – on Twitter — was able to capture the clip of Busch’s contact with the pace car, and posted it to his social media account.

Further showing his immense displeasure with the entire situation, Busch decided to give the “one finger salute” to the person in the flagstand at New Hampshire Motor Speedway while under caution. The image of the act was captured by @lawnmowerpranks – on Twitter — who posted the image to his social media account on Sunday Afternoon.

Busch’s No. 18 Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry has already been loaded onto the team’s hauler, and will be taken back to North Carolina to start the two-week summer break a little but early, an extra day off that both the driver and crew didn’t necessarily want, considering the circumstances.
