Kyle Busch battles his car and social media criticism this weekend in Nashville

It’s not easy to look meaner (and we’re not talking about Richard and Kyle here) than Kyle Busch some days, but Twitter users seem to be making it hard to do that.

The start of the second half of the NASCAR Cup Series season brought the drivers to Nashville, the immature to Twitter and the No. 18 Toyota to the garage for emergency repairs.

It’s just one more weekend in the life of the future Hall of Famer.

Keyboard warriors descend on Kyle Busch

Kyle Busch is intimately familiar with the expression that no good deed goes unpunished. In true Rowdy fashion, however, he’s not one to take the punishment by sitting down.

As the NASCAR Cup Series arrives in Nashville after a week off, Busch hosted an appearance at a Walmart area to promote the Rowdy Energy line of products. As part of this, the two-time Cup Series champion has arranged to sign autographs for the first 100 people to respond to the event.

Now, we have to point out here that while some racing fans despise the driver, he is popular with a large segment of the crowd. Thus, he tends to draw a crowd, so 100 autographs might have been too little. If the people running the event had thought, they might have splurged for running 224 color prints.

That would reflect his 224 career wins in all three national series. By signing and numbering them, he would have given lucky fans a keepsake. Even better, he could have signed 225, showing a certain arrogance in hinting that he planned to win on Sunday.

Alas, cutting the autograph count to 100 on a day when he had to hit the track for practice ticked off a keyboard warrior. And you can just feel that the keyboard is located in mom’s basement.

Kyle Busch fires back like only Kyle Busch can

Naturally, someone launched their Twitter account, where access is cheap and conversation is cheaper. A user with all 101 followers barked at Kyle Busch:

“Richard Petty would have stayed until anyone who wanted an autograph got one ~ Just signing for the first 100 people is a bigger jolt than when you smashed the Sam Bass guitar ~”

Busch crashed his windshield into this bug at 150 mph with his response:

“Cool. I’m just gonna stay and sign autographs for over 5,000 people and miss practice at 5 p.m. You should be my publicist so you can tell my team that my job isn’t as important as signing autographs.

Of course, another Twitter critic, this one with 88 followers and a bio entry calling pro wrestling “the most real thing in my life,” felt compelled to chime in, telling Busch, “lol crybaby kyle again.”

It was easy for Busch.

“Your biography tells me everything I need to know,” he shot back.

There may have been karma at work in Saturday’s qualifying

You could practically hear the cackle of Kyle Busch haters on Saturday during qualifying for Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race. While Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Denny Hamlin clinched pole position with a 160.413mph lap that edged Joey Logano, Busch did not complete his lap.

The #18 Toyota failed to hold its line out of Turn 3 and backed into the outside wall. This will send Busch to the back of the field for the Ally 400.
