Kyle Busch was stripped of his NASCAR Xfinity win minutes after he crossed the finish line. His car was deemed illegal in the post-race inspection and he was denied his win after lifting the trophy.
In light of this incident, Austin Cindric who came in at P2 was awarded the victory. The race saw Xfinity Series points leader Chase Briscoe took the checkered flag behind Kyle and Austin.
After the race, Kyle Busch talked about the disqualification and the reasons behind it. Bob Pocrass of Fox NASCAR posted a clip of the interview on Twitter.
In the interview, Kyle said, “Too many levers, too many things too much bullshit that you gotta go through. It pisses me off, we come out here and race. Run and score a win and it gets taken away from you and it’s because of nothing we did.”
Additionally, he said, “There is nothing I could do about it. So you gotta move on.”
In the interview, Kyle explains some technicalities of the car height rules. After that, he explains what caused the car’s rear part to measure below the legal limit.
He said, “You start the cars in the green and then there is a levy I don’t know its 3/8th of an inch or something before you fall into the red(disqualify).”
He added, “The only thing that I can think of is when they are allowed to unhook the shocks they pull the front of the car up. And they overpull the front of the car which dipped the left rear.
“Because the spring of the left rear is kinda soft and that lowered the left rear spoiler height. it’s where they check all the way to the back of the car. And that made it low.”
He states his frustration and said that he doesn’t totally understand what happened there. And even suggested that NASCAR eliminate all car height rule from all the three top racing series.
