‘He drills my ass coming out of [turn] 4 for no reason,’ Busch told reporters.

‘I mean, where was he going? What was he gonna do? Spin me out? He was trying to do a [Kevin] Harvick is what he was trying to do. For what? For second place? To do what, he wasn’t gonna transfer through with that.

‘It’s frickin’ r*******, man.’ Busch continued. ‘So stupid. I don’t understand these guys. I should beat the s*** out of him right now, is what I should do. But, that doesn’t do me any good, either.’

Busch later apologized for using the term, which refers to people who suffer from mental retardation.

‘In one of my post-race interviews I used a word I should never use and I want to apologize for it,’ he tweeted Sunday night.

NASCAR made its decision on the matter Monday night.

Alex Bowman picked up the victory Sunday at Martinsville Speedway in the final elimination race ahead of the winner-take-all season finale. Bowman wasn’t eligible to make the championship round and his overtime victory denied both Busch and Keselowski the final spot in the field.

The Cup will be decided next Sunday at sold-out Phoenix Raceway between favorite Kyle Larson and reigning champion Chase Elliott for Hendrick Motorsports, and Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. for Joe Gibbs Racing. It will pit a pair of Hendrick Chevrolets against two JGR Toyotas.

Despite being reprimanded by NASCAR, Busch will be driving on Sunday.
