Kyle “Rowdy” Busch, among the most vocal drivers in the Cup Series stable, is well known for his brash criticism. Moving to Richard Childress Racing, Rowdy has been enjoying a stellar season behind the #8 Chevy. Earlier Busch had voiced his concerns regarding the rough surface conditions of the Chicago street circuit. The RCR driver’s concerns came true as multiple crashes and even a logjam plagued the Chicago Street Course event. Busch himself was the first major victim of Chicago’s unfavorable track during the Grant Park 220 race.

Seldom known to crack jokes, Rowdy recently posted a video on his Instagram page mocking himself, ultimately stealing Ross Chastain’s throne.

“Magic Man”: Kyle Busch hilariously mocks himself

Lap 1 of the Grant Park 220 Chicago Cup Series race saw two minor contacts, which slowed the race down for four drivers, including Brad Keselowski. Lap 2 saw Kyle Busch lose control in Turn 6. Crashing head-on into the tire barrier, the bonnet of the #8 RCR Chevy got buried leaving Busch stuck. Buried windshield deep into the barriers, Rowdy’s crash brought out the first caution of the day. With his concerns regarding the street circuit coming to life, Busch’s #8 Chevy had to be towed out from under the barrier. The remainder of the race was fairly uneventful for Busch, as he went on to finish a respectable 5th.

Recently, posting a video of the Turn 6 crash on Instagram, Kyle Busch hilariously mocked himself. The video shows Busch’s #8 Chevy losing control and sliding into the tire barriers, almost disappearing. Voicing over the video, Busch can be heard saying, “The magic man. Now you see me, now you don’t!” Mockingly coining a nickname for himself after his “disappearing act” in Chicago. Kyle Busch’s RCR teammate, Austin Dillon joined in on the hilarity. Commenting on Rowdy’s post, the #3 RCR driver expressed his amusement at his teammate’s uncharacteristic act.
