Kyle Busch wins, but disqualified when his car fails weight test

Kyle Busch thought he had another win.

He won the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup race at Pocono Raceway on Sunday, and less than two days later, won the Dixieland 250 at Wisconsin International Raceway on Tuesday.

Not so fast.

Busch was disqualified after a posts-race inspection found his car didn’t meet weight requirements, according to the Post-Crescent. On it’s Facebook page, Speed51 reported that Busch’s car was too light on the scales.

Casey Johnson was awarded the victory and, with the disqualification, Busch dropped from first place to 30.

Ouch.
