This is a tale-of-the-tape made for Texas Motor Speedway, whose staff always capitalizes on drama.
Brad Keselowski and Kurt Busch fired verbal daggers in each other’s direction after Sunday’s race at Martinsville Speedway, and who knows, this grudge match might boil over into this weekend’s race at Texas.
Never shy about speaking their minds, these two drivers have compiled an all-star list of feuding dance partners. Keselowski has verbally sparred with the likes of Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch; Kurt Busch, whose career extends a tad further back, has had on- and off-track bouts with names such as Jimmy Spencer, Ryan Newman and even current teammates Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart.
The interesting part: They’ll each back up their words with astounding success on the race track. Both are NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champions (Busch in 2003; Keselowski in 2012).
And both are strong at Texas. Keselowski enters the weekend with three consecutive top 10s at Texas, including a runner-up finish in 2012. Busch has a win at Texas – in 2009, while with Penske Racing.
