Chase Elliott flips off Kyle Busch after wreck during Toyota 500

Chase Elliott was less than thrilled with Kyle Busch after a mistake on Busch's part resulted in Elliott unable to finish Wednesday night's NASCAR Cup Series race at Darlington Raceway. Elliott was in a good position, in second place behind the eventual winner Denny Hamlin, when Busch's No. 18 Toyota heavily tapped the No. 9 Chevrolet sending it into the boards.

Elliott was unable to finish the race after the contact and was visibly upset with Busch. Getting out of his car, Elliott waited for Busch so he could deliver a message to him, by way of the middle finger:

The Joe Gibbs racer took second-place before the red flag was brought out for inclement weather with 22 laps to go, but soon after, the race was official.

After the race, Busch was confronted by his former crew chief Alan Gustafson, who is now the crew chief for Elliott's team.

In an interview following the race, Busch admitted that he was responsible for the error:

"Obviously, I just made a mistake, misjudged the gap, sent him into the wall. That was entirely unintentional. Yeah, I mean, I'll definitely reach out to him and tell him I'm sorry, tell him I hate it that it happened. All I can do. That doesn't change the outcome of the night."

Busch also tweeted an apology to the Hendrick Motorsports driver:

Even after hearing Busch's explanation, Gustafson said it doesn't really change anything or "calm the waters."

Elliott earned 13 stage points after finishing seventh in Stage 1 and taking the second slot in Stage 2.
