Top 10 Reasons Kurt Busch’s Car is Always Late for Pre-Race Inspection

News broke this week that one of the reasons NASCAR officials “held” Kurt Busch‘s car in pre-race inspection Sunday (Sept. 25) is the No. 22 Penske Racing Dodge had developed a history of being late. Well, after an unofficial Frontstretch investigation the Top 10 Posse has found some reasons behind this team’s “time management problem…”

10. Asked Joe Menzer and Jenna Fryer for directions to the inspection line.

9. Blocked in stall by a giant, red Lowe’s pit box filled with Kobalt Tools.

8. Team given a 15-minute timeout for cussing once Kurt accidentally mistook an official for Steve Addington.

7. Lost in thought reading Chad Knaus’s setup book: Coloring Around the Gray Area: Getting Away With Technical Murder Since 1996.

6. New “Monkey F$@#%/g A Football” scheme deemed inappropriate.

5. Miller Lite bottles disguised as “lemonade” and handed out by Brad Keselowski during lunch.

4. Fending off TMZ after Kurt had his tongue down his girlfriend’s throat … before his divorce went public. Oh, wait, that actually happened. Awkward!

3. Kurt late getting off the phone with Kyle, explaining how to talk yourself out of a speeding ticket. Again.

2. 20-minute, weekly delay to extricate agitated, half-employed Sam Hornish Jr. from the cockpit screaming, “This ride is mine! Mine, I tell you! I won the IRL championship 80 times, you know … and doesn’t the Indy 500 mean anything to you people?”

1. Crew busy signing contracts for tell-all book and Dr. Phil appearance after the season – spewing their tear-filled tale of verbal abuse to the world.
