|Reuitmann Not Proud of Wrecking Busch at Kansas
|MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) -- David Reutimann says he's not proud of intentionally wrecking Kyle Busch at Kansas Speedway.
But Reutimann also says he feels he had to defend himself after Busch ran into him early in Sunday's race.
Busch accepted fault for the first accident. But he said the contact was unintentional and unavoidable because Reutimann's car got loose in front him.
Reutimann hit Busch's car roughly 100 laps later as payback. Busch was running seventh at the time, finished 21st and dropped from third to seventh in the championship standings.
Reutimann has been wrecked in three of the last four races, and felt he had to send a message that he won't be run over on the race track.
