Kurt Busch doesn't think he endangered anyone last weekend at Darlington Raceway, and he insists he accidentally ran into the back of Ryan Newman's car after the race.
And he's baffled as to why Newman has been leveling scathing attacks on Busch's personality in the days since last Saturday night's incident that earned Busch a $50,000 fine from NASCAR.
But the former series champion believes the entire episode is "WWE-type action" that is good for NASCAR.
Speaking Friday for the first time since his run-in with Newman and Newman's crew at Darlington, Busch seemed aggravated by the questions about his latest flare-up. It comes as NASCAR heads into Saturday night's no-holds-barred $1 million All-Star race, where tempers have been known to boil over.
