After his sensational win in Las Vegas last weekend, Hendrick driver Alex Bowman seems to be enjoying his life ever so more now. After all, he has more Cup wins in the last year than any other driver except the defending champion.

However, there’s one thing that Bowman isn’t enjoying much currently – M&M’s.

This was what he revealed in an appearance on fellow NASCAR driver, Corey LaJoie’s show. LaJoie asked Bowman what his favorite flavor of M&M’s is, to which Bowman said, “I don’t know.”

“All the M&M’s I’ve been around lately have been salty.”

This is obviously a subtle dig at Toyota M&M’s Camry driver Kyle Busch, who, after the race result in Vegas, delivered a furious rant on Bowman for being in the right place at the right time.

Busch said of Bowman on his radio, “The same f***ing guy who backs into every f***ing win that he ever f***ing gets, backs into another f***ing win. Bull shit!”

“He wasn’t mad at me. I didn’t do anything to him. Kyle and I have always raced each other with respect. He was just mad that he lost the race and I was the one on the other end of the rant.”

Bowman described Busch as someone who is “passionate.” It’s just that he was caught on the wrong side of his passion in Vegas.

“I was in the fire on that one, but he basically said he was just mad about losing the race and didn’t mean to be so disrespectful to me,” Bowman clarified.
