What is it with people getting the Busch brothers — Kyle and Kurt — mixed up all of the time? The latest to suffer from a case of the mix-ups is Indianapolis Motor Speedway, who sent a gift — the wrong gift — to Chip Ganassi Racing.
Last month, during the Verizon 200 at the Brickyard weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course, tons of streets around the speedway were given honorary NASCAR driver names of Cup Series drivers who were competing in the race.
After the race weekend was over, the speedway opted to mail these honorary street signs to the race teams.
Chip Ganassi Racing opened their package on Friday, and they were surprised with the Kyle Busch St. sign. However, it’s Kurt Busch who drives for Chip Ganassi Racing, not his younger brother Kyle.
CGR had great humor with the mix-up and sent a hilarious tweet to Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Friday:

Busch went on a full-on assault of ESPN, even producing a mock press conference announcing his faux move to 23XI Racing.
When Busch saw the latest case of his identity being mixed up with his brother’s, he couldn’t help but take another shot at ESPN:
