Kyle Busch wasn’t happy with the result at last night’s Cup Series race at Charlotte. He got into an incident with Aric Almirola and dropped to the back of the grid.

After the race, he posted his thoughts on Twitter. Kyle posts on Twitter, “When surrounded by squirrels you’re bound to get hit by a nut”. The tweet got mixed response from fans on Twitter. Some people even called him out on his Coca-Cola 600 incident with Chase Elliott. And many people supported Kyle’s stand and fired remarks at Almirola and Stenhouse.

Kyle was running at number ten before the incident and dropped down to the last place because of some issues with his left rear tire. At lap 63, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. made a bold four-wide move. Stenhouse’s move forced many drivers to make way and almost touch the inside line. However, Aric Almirola wasn’t able to control his car and went on the inside of Busch. He could not hang on and slipped into Busch’s No. 18 car resulting in a cut tire. After that, Busch lost two laps and dropped down to the bottom of the grid.
