Just like his brother Kyle, Kurt Busch is a head case.

It’s time for teams to put their foot down with drivers that only care about themselves (Like Busch) and make a stand.

After six years with Penske racing, immature actions have caused embarrassment for Busch himself as well as Penske racing as a team. That’s why both parties have agreed mutually to part ways.

A.K.A. Busch got fired.

After a season filled with berating his own crew member and crew chief as well as verbally assaulting several members of the media, the star has found himself on the outside looking in.

Roger Penske shared a statement on Penske Racing’s website:

I appreciate the victories that Kurt has brought Penske Racing and our sponsors over the past six years. While I am disappointed that Kurt will not be racing for our team in the future, both Kurt and I felt that separating at this time was best for all parties, including our team and sponsors. I wish Kurt the best in his future racing endeavors.

It’s time for NASCAR to show him a lesson.

All of the major owners in NASCAR should ban together to boycott Busch for this season at least in hope that he either doesn’t find a job or ends up driving a second-tier car for a mediocre team.

Busch needs to grow up fast in order to salvage his career. With the bad taste he left in the mouth of Roush Racing and the troubled end to his stay at Penske, Busch’s new reputation alone will keep him from getting any marquee jobs.

While it’s true NASCAR fans like the wild card, hurting your own team is not what people want.

The fans want a guy like Tony Stewart that will criticize his own guys in a way to improve the team. While Stewart can be just as arrogant as Busch, his honesty and straightforwardness makes people relate to him.

People just hate Kurt Busch.
