Gilliland grills Kyle Busch in heat of the moment after Martinsville win

Todd Gilliland took a verbal shot at team owner Kyle Busch in the moments after Gilliland’s first career NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series win on Saturday at Martinsville Speedway. Gilliland yelled over the team radio that Busch could “stay in his (expletive) motor home.”

When asked about the comments afterward, Gilliland said, “It was just kind of heat of the moment really. Everyone has heard what he said. It’s true, we should have been running better. I probably wish I didn’t say it now. It is what it is. He said some stuff about me.”

He later tweeted:

Gilliland’s apparent frustration likely stemmed from comments earlier in the season when Busch called out Gilliland and teammate Harrison Burton, saying that if they couldn’t get the job done in Kyle Busch Motorsports equipment, that there wouldn’t be much left for them.

An attempt to reach Kyle Busch for comment was unsuccessful.
