It seems that Kurt Busch's temper got the best of him again after his transmission failed and he was forced out of Sundays final race of the season at Homestead. Kurt went off on an apparent "profanity laced tirade" when ESPN analyst Jerry Punch tried to interview Busch afterwards. Punch took one too many low blows from Busch, and decided the interview was not worth it, and walked away.
Penske Racing made an almost immediate response to Kurt Busch's actions saying "Penske Racing extends its apologies to Dr. Jerry Punch, our media partners and our sponsors and fans for Kurt Busch's inappropriate actions in Homestead on Sunday. These actions do not represent Penske Racing and are inconsistent with the company's standards for behavior, respect for others and professionalism. This matter is being reviewed internally with no further comment at this time."
Later that night, in trying to make amends for his actions, Kurt Busch made the following statement. "Unfortunately, our result in the season-ending race at Homestead on Sunday was not what we had hoped for as a team. In my frustration with the loss of my transmission early in the race, I let my emotions get the better of me. I regret having done this and apologize to the sponsors of Penske Racing , to NASCAR, its fans, to the media and in particular, Dr. Jerry Punch."
Then to top things off, Steve Addington announced he will not be returning to be the crew chief for Kurt Busch in 2012. Is appears Addington too, got sick and tired of Kurt Busch's constant verbal assaults this year.
Does anyone see a pattern here? Seems the Busch brothers both have the same exact anger and temper issues, and both have had to learn how to apologize for their rude and boorish behaviors. What is the problem with these two, is it in their genes? Were they spoiled so bad as kids that this is how they turned out? Were they abused? Or are they just an anomaly.
To me it really don't matter what their problem is or where it came from. I for one am sick and tired of these two punks, and their antics. There comes a point when you just say enough is enough, and I am done with it.
Now, some people will say "Tony Stewart took care of his temper issues with anger management classes", and so can Kyle and Kurt. Well, while it may be true that some people can change, others cannot. And I do not see these two brothers ever changing from the mean, disrespectful, vindictive tyrants that they are. Now if I was the father of these two, I would have a serious sit down with my sons and read them the riot act and try to put some sense back into their thick skulls, if there was ever any sense to start with.
It's time to grow up Busch brothers, before you do something that will ruin both of your careers!
