Ask anyone about NASCAR’s “bad boy” and they’ll talk about Busch’s talent behind the wheel with confidence. While his nickname raises some eyebrows, there is no denying the potential of the 38-year-old. With over 60 wins to his name in the cup series, Rowdy is indeed a force to be reckoned with.

In the exclusive interview, Busch details how he struggled to land a sponsor and how things went south.

With his fellow Cup Series driver, Kyle Larson joining Arrow Mclaren for his Indy 500 run for the much-anticipated run, Busch reflected on his spot being taken away from him.“Larson got the ride that I was slated to get, he’s got that locked up for two years, so I don’t know if it’ll ever happen,”


He added, I’m not going to be making calls and pushing for it. If somebody calls me and says that they’re ready to go and it all lines up right, so be it. We’ll go do it.” 

As NASCAR enthusiast, Bob Pockrass shared the short clip on his social media handle, KB fans rushed to the scene as they started to comment and share their sorrow to see Busch miss his dream run.

While he made sure that he dropped pushing for it, Busch also isn’t ruling out any options.
