In the aftermath of the COTA race, Ryan Preece of Stewart Hass racing was disappointed. While at the beginning of the race, it appeared that there was going to be no chaos, something completely different happened at the end of the race that changed everything.
Most drivers need to think about the consequences of their actions since they did not choose the means to achieve their goals. There is a sense of disappointment in Preece due to the lack of respect that was shown. According to him, many people should receive punishment as a consequence of their actions.
“Yeah, I got wrecked by a bunch of hacks. Well, you want to know what this is? This comes down to a lack of respect. Some pay their way, and they don’t respect cars. What happens going into turn one? They just run into everyone, and they ruin days, so someone needs an ass-kicking, that’s for sure,” Ryan Preece said.
Kyle Busch talks about the lack of respect
A few weeks ago, it was Kyle Busch who spoke about the lack of respect between NASCAR drivers. Busch believes that many of them are selfish, so they need to work on some things. “That’s where the problem lies.
Nobody gives two shits about anybody else. It’s just a problem where everybody takes advantage of everybody as much as possible. We’re all selfish, granted, but there was an etiquette that once did live here,” Kyle Busch said.
After the COTA race, Busch praised Tyler Reddick who earned a well-deserved victory. However, he did not forget to criticize Ross Chastain, who drove "dirty". “The biggest thing was I got alongside Reddick there on that restart into the esses, and I could have forced the issue and pushed him off or whatever.
But we ran each other hard. We ran each other clean and gave each other room. I respect the kid. He’s been nothing but great to me, so I give him respect back,” Kyle Busch said.
