Kyle Busch surprised everyone with his comments last week after the Talladega Superspeedway race. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver made it clear to the reporter that the situation is quite murky about his renewal with the team. To top it all off, his principal sponsor, M&M, is also set to leave the sport at the end of the season.

In such a situation, Trackhouse Racing has a chance to rope in the 37-year-old driver. At least that’s what Ryan ‘Skip’ Flores thinks. The former Pit Crew of Team Penske believes Justin Marks has a good chance ahead of him. The chance is to take the no. 18 car driver in his team, Trackhouse Racing.

Talking about this, Ryan conveyed, “If you’re Justin Marks and if Daniel Suarez doesn’t win at the end of the year and Kyle Busch is on the table. I love Daniel, but like I feel like I was a good tire changer when Nico O’Dell was in front of the 18 and he became a free agent. He ended up going to the 9 car now. You know, they gained a lot of money but I was like ‘sh*t, this guy’s pretty good.”

“If I’m anywhere, and I may be slightly off from my teammate, or not performing exactly how I wanna be. I’m nervous, cuz this guy’s (Kyle Busch) is the best driver that’s on the race track right now. The most accomplished driver on the race-track right now.“, the former Pit Crew further stated.

Apart from the post-Talladega race interview, Busch has got his fans enthralled with the ‘clickbait’ t-shirt that he sported days before the Dover race. He expressed that the media made comments out of context, as he answered the questions and didn’t elaborate in the interview.

It’s not unknown to NASCAR fans how hard it is to get Kyle Busch to talk. Despite such a murky situation, it’ll be interesting to see what Justin Marks and his team, Trackhouse Racing, would do when Kyle’s contract with Joe Gibbs Racing expires at the end of this season. Only time will tell.
