Kyle Busch has been one of NASCAR’s most polarizing drivers for years, and he was involved in several controversial incidents this past weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway. During the race, he accidentally crashed Martin Truex Jr., and after the event, an angry fan reportedly confronted him.
Yet Busch has always had his fans, and he always will. Count NASCAR President Brent Dewar among Busch’s supporters.
Busch, who is active on social media — he has almost 900,000 followers — got tagged in a tweet Sunday from someone who embedded a video of Joey Logano giving an Interview at Bristol.
“@KyleBusch this is how you give an interview,” the tweet advised.
Busch responded to the tweet, “And if all of us r the same then aren’t we Vanilla and boring?! Sport needs characters. Careful what u wish for.”

That prompted Dewar to weigh in on the matter.
“Keep being yourself and wheeling it like you can!”

Some fans can hate Busch’s style, but they can’t argue with his results. He currently leads the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup standings and has six victories this season.
