Kyle Busch apologized Thursday for his tirade against Toyota after running low on fuel at Dover International Speedway.
“I made some remarks out of frustration on my radio at the end of last weekend's race in Dover that were very misguided,” Busch said in a statement. “I owe my friends at Toyota and TRD an apology. We have a great partnership with TRD and they built me a motor that helped me lead over 300 laps and nearly lap the field.
“It's just frustrating that the caution fell where it did and suddenly it became a fuel mileage race and we were set up for maximum horsepower. Obviously, that worked well for most of the day and you can't control when the cautions will fall.”
Busch had led 302 of 400 laps at Dover on Sunday before he needed to refuel late in the race, which may have cost him a victory.
