Kurt Busch has heated exchange with reporter

#51-Kurt Busch's troubles with the media continued on Saturday at Michigan International Speedway. Busch had a brief, heated exchange with ESPN reporter Marty Smith after Saturday's Nationwide Series race at MIS, a week after serving a one-week suspension for making threatening comments to Sporting News reporter Bob Pockrass after the Dover Nationwide Series race. Busch, on orders from Sprint Cup team owner James Finch, avoided talking to reporters upon arriving at MIS on Thursday. But when he finished third in the race won by Joey Logano on Saturday, he had to make a mandatory appearance in the media center. As he waited to be interviewed, an MRN Radio pit reporter said on the live broadcast that Busch left the top-five area without interviewing. Busch was told of the comment and replied, "That's what everybody says, don't they." Busch then left the room to cool off. Several reporters, including Smith, with a camera crew, followed. Busch then told Smith to come over with his camera. When Smith got there, Busch said he wasn't doing interviews there, adding, "You ever hear of sarcasm?" That led to a brief exchange during which Busch said, "You don't know how long I've been working on this."(see full post at ESPN.com)(6-17-2012)

He will never learn! They just need to park him permanently. He is such a sad excuse for a man...

Re: Kurt Busch has heated exchange with reporter

What part of the interview is over didn't Smith understand? Not a fan of Kurt and Smith is one of the few media members I like. But this smacks of TMZ type media! Ambush at its best. I suggest NASCAR suspend Smith for a race since he taunted a driver.

Re: Kurt Busch has heated exchange with reporter

he didnt taunt nobody, marty smith isnt that type of reporter. kurt called him over, and if you know anything about journalism whether it legit news or sensationalism a reporter is trained to follow a subject that can lead to a story, kurt has a fat mouth and cant control it, bottom line, he was looking to shoot his mouth off and he did, class A jerk, hence why they have no sponsorship, nobody wants a troll representing them. maybe SHR should sit you down from the site for a week, for not knowing or understanding what happened.

Re: Kurt Busch has heated exchange with reporter

I like Marty Smith, but they all smell the blood in the water. The elf has to know they're coming after him every chance they get. Why he doesn't just flash that fake smile and keep his mouth closed is beyond me.

SS14 Marty Smith didn't ask Kurt, Kurt told Marty to come out back and he would give him an interview. Watch NASCAR Now you will see a totally different story. Watch how Kurt acts during the post race after the NW race. It is really bad.

Re: Kurt Busch has heated exchange with reporter

Kurt was being sarcastic apparently. How are you going to expect someone to change when you keep poking and waiting for him to blow up? He will blow up if that keeps happening. He is only human. Put a drink in front of someone who is trying to quit drinking and he will fold. I thought professional reporters were always committed to stay out of the story? Not anymore. Now they want to be the story. I know NASCAR will take no action against this TMZ reporter but this was BS, and I am no fan of the bro's.

Just watched Matty's report on ESPN.com, no film how nice for Marty. One-sided reporting at best.

because he is #### bent on playing this bad a$$ role, and he is anything but, he threatens people when he knows he cant do anything, talks crap to other drivers only when his pit crew was around, he is a waste of space,

Re: Kurt Busch has heated exchange with reporter

There is no doubt Kurt Busch needs some help. I don't understand why someone won 't help him. An intervention of sorts. Can we all agree he is a phenomenal driver?

So....can you be grounded from the site for a week? Really? Like double secret probation?

Re: Kurt Busch has heated exchange with reporter

The media just needs to leave him alone.
For better or for worse they can make a driver's career.

phenomenal, i doubt it, they are maybe 3 or 4 in nascar who are, and they won multiple championships, he was suppose to get help over the off season, but we see how that went, most everyone here jumps on JPM because of how he acts, so its fair game for Kurt to be criticized, like it is said many of times the "drivers need nascar, nascar dont need them." there is always someone ready to take a place

Re: Kurt Busch has heated exchange with reporter

Kurt has won a championship (beat Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon), 24 races, and has won at least one race a season since 2002. That is phenomenal. He may be an ####. But he is as good as any driver out there.
