Richard ChildressRichard Childress, If team owner Richard Childress had issued an ultimatum, which was new to Kyle Busch. Asked on Friday if he understood why Childress was angry with him after the race weekend at Kansas Speedway Truck, Busch said, “I get hit Joey Coulter greeting is what tipped over the edge there.”

“I do not remember that at any moment – a conversation face to face with Richard (saying) I,” If you touch one of my cars, I’ll come find you. “I do not know if it has been said in the media, but never shown me.”

Childress, 65, and was fined 150,000 and placed on probation until the end of the year for repeatedly striking Busch in the garage after the race last weekend. Busch had beaten a side of the truck Coulter on the next turn to the final after the two fought hard for the last positions in the race.

“If he came to me and was so upset that he would have offered money to fix it,” Busch said. “I am the owner of this sport. I know it will be started the team here and there, sometimes.”

On Friday, Childress took responsibility for punching Busch, but apologized to the driver and said he disagreed with NASCAR not to take any action against Busch for his coup.

Safety first: Pocono Raceway, site of the spring today’s race of the Cup, is a safer track.

The facility underwent a project of several million dollars last year made significant security improvements, including a soft barrier wall and catch fence. The fence runs from the front end of the line and connects to the existing catch fence in Turn 2. The near 6,155 feet around the entire 2.5-mile track.

The SAFER barrier running the entire length of the inside of the track on the exit of Turn 1 at the entrance of Turn 3. Pocono and has soft wall barriers in each of three laps of the track. “That SAFER barrier is the next generation,” said track president Brandon Igdalsky. “It’s cool, independent stuff. It’s pretty wild.”

A series of wrecks in recent years fear Igdalsky made aware that it was time to act. NASCAR listened responses and drivers long complained about the issue of the triangle was not sure, but never forced NASCAR to security changes.

Greg Biffle blasted the track last year, saying: “They’re going to kill someone there.” The approved updates. “It’s probably 10 years overdue,” he said. “I applaud them for taking action.”
