The incident took place in the last year’s Kentucky race. In the final laps of the race, Kyle was trying hard to take the lead and tried to squeeze Kurt to the left wall.

However, Kurt was able to find enough room to defend against Kyle and keep the lead to win the epic race. Kyle settled for second place after multiple attempts to overtake his brother in vain.

Talking about the fans attending the race he said, “To have the opportunity to race in front of fans again, that’s something all the drivers and teams have been missing.”

He added, “At the start of our races, there’s that feeling of energy from the fans. And it hasn’t been there. With Bristol opening up, I’m glad that a certain number of fans can come to see their favorite drivers in person and enjoy the atmosphere.”

Additionally, he appreciated the series and everyone for their combined efforts to protect the community from COVID-19. He said, “It’s been an incredible effort in the collaboration between the teams, owners, track officials, and the states, cities, and counties we can race in.
