In a recent video released by NASCAR, some of the top drivers reacted to ‘mean tweets’ aimed at them. Amongst them was the Joe Gibbs Racing driver, Kyle Busch, whose tweet suggested a wild plot including UFC President Dana White, Jake Paul, and Busch himself.

“Since everyone is piggy backing Jake Paul, if Dana White agrees to pay me $50K then I’ll retire to podcasting to fight Kyle Busch in a three-round bout,” the mean tweet read.

This led Busch to respond in an even more hilarious way as he gave a shout-out to the one NASCAR driver who has a podcast show.

“Let’s go, boy. I see you, Earnhardt, come on,” Busch replied.

“We have all but one time,” Logano said about his history of racing dirty with Kyle Busch. “But outside of that, we’ve never really had a bunch of controversy around us. I can’t say we like each other. But we seem to have respect for each other’s abilities, and the way we race.”

Logano emphasized that he and Busch race each other hard, that they’re not scared to bump each other, rub doors, or make some contact. But none of that is ever “outside the line”, at least at this stage of their careers. “I think because of that we run each other hard, we don’t give each other slack,” he continued.
