Kurt Busch’s neighbors offer a helping hand — a little too late

Just in case Kurt Busch ever finds himself in a position again where he 1. Has won the pole, 2. Has led a race-high 56-percent of the laps (108 of 193) and 3. Appears headed to a long-awaited first victory at Talladega Superspeedway, his kind neighbors offered a helping hand Monday.

Busch shared via Twitter that his neighbors know what might have helped him snag that checkered flag Sunday — something his Stewart-Haas Racing teammate Aric Almirola did, instead, as Busch’s No. 41 Ford slowed while it approached the finish line.


Yup, some extra gasoline.

At least Busch has retained his sense of humor — something that is probably a little easier considering he’s still ranked sixth among 12 NASCAR Playoffs drivers.
