Richard Childress comments on Busch altercation

Richard Childress met the media Friday morning at Pocono Raceway and in a brief statement addressed his altercation with Kyle Busch last week in Kansas. Here is what the team owner said during the session:

Here's the deal: I'm going to make a statement on this deal. I appreciate everyone's patience on this deal in the last week when I couldn't talk to everyone. 

I guess the main thing is I take all the responsibility for my actions last week. I'm very passionate about this sport, I'm passionate about our race teams, our fans. And I let my emotions come in front of my passion. But that's behind us. 

I guess the next thing is the fine that was levied against me, I'm going to pay it personal. I agree that NASCAR should have done something with me.

I don't agree that they didn't handle the situation that happened on the cool-down lap. 

With that said, we had a lot of fans to send in donations last week toward our fine. I'm going to pay it personally. All that money that's been sent in that's still coming in, we're going to take it and donate it to the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma. At least in every bad situation, something good will come out of it. 

Hopefully, Kyle and myself will both end up learning something from this. 

Thank y'all very much, and talk to you later. See ya.

This is a simple case of assault and battery if it happened on the street. The only sorry part is Childress is a sorry excuse for a human being. At his age he knows better and should learn to control his emotions.

Best driver in NASCAR today??? Dude, get your hand out of the cereal box. Someone else already took the toy.

Childress was cool with it when Earnhardt Sr. wrecked people and now he's got a problem when the best driver in NASCAR today drives the exact same way.  He's a hypocrite and a pathetic old fool who dies his hair a ridiculous orange.  His grandkids must be proud.

Richard Childress comments on Busch altercation

How awesome would it be if a loose tire from Busch's car killed Childress?  Since these babies are above the law, karma will have to take them out.  And there is nothing NACSAR fans like more than gratuitous violence and a body count.  Its a win-win.
Obviously it wwouldn't be cool at all, but my point is when you advocate handling things like children instead of like a man, you ask for such absurd statements.

I find it very amusing that the crumb nibbling little idiot got his nuts handed to him by a 60 year old man.


That or he was the bigger man and choose not to mop the floor with him. Allowing Childress 3-4 punches and not retaliate shows a lot more class on Kyles part.

Those are gratitude checks for slapping the Shrub, not to help pay the fine of a millionaire.
