RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Another on-track incident with Jimmie Johnson had Kurt Busch confident he's finally rattling the five-time NASCAR champion.
But Busch's actions said otherwise, particularly when he unraveled after Saturday night's race when asked about Johnson.
Busch twice argued with a reporter, denied ever saying he was in Johnson's head, then tore up the transcript that proved otherwise.
His behavior raised questions about his ability to maintain his composure over the upcoming 10-race Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. Busch goes into Sunday's first round at Chicago ranked seventh in the 12-driver field.
