NASCAR driver Kyle Busch has apologised for using a slur in a post-race interview over the weekend.
Busch used the r-word to describe fellow racer Brad Keselowski in a post-race interview on Sunday, after making contact with his vehicle during the NASCAR Cup playoff race in Martinsville, Virginia.
“It’s frickin’ r***rded man. So stupid. I don’t understand these guys. I should beat the s*** out of him right now, is what I should do. But that doesn’t do me any good either,” he said.
