One of NASCAR’s biggest names is unhappy with a rule change, and says he might be “done”

Kyle Busch is not happy.

In an interview on SIRUS FM Radio — and reported on MotorSport.com — Busch slammed NASCAR’s new rule that limits the number of races Cup drivers can participate in, in lower divisions.

Under the new rules, drivers with five or more years of full-time experience can run in a maximum of five races in the Camping World Truck Series, and seven races in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Here’s what Busch said:

But if we keep continuing to put the limits on it, I’m going to tell you right now, if the limits to the Truck Series go to zero, I’m done. So you wouldn’t see Kyle Busch Motorsports teams out on the race track.

His concerns center around losing sponsorship, but also losing the enthusiasm he has for truck races.

I enjoy going out and running Truck races and if I’m not allowed to do that, then why am I owning a team that I’m not allowed to race for? It just doesn’t make any sense. If I’m out there spending money for other drivers and whatnot to come up through the ranks, but yet, I’m getting beat up as not allowed to drive in it and it’s no fun for me, then why am I spending my money to continue to evolve talent that’s going to replace me one day.

This is an issue that doesn’t only impact Busch, and it will be interesting to see how other drivers respond.
