LEBANON, Tn. — Kyle Busch celebrated his win in the Nationwide Series Federated Auto Parts 300 at Nashville Superspeedway by smashing the Gibson Guitar given him for winning.
Busch said he made a promise to his team members last year that if he ever won a race at Nashville, he would give them each a piece of the guitar.
“I always said, ‘Man, if I win here, I’d smash that thing.’ I had to stick to my word. It’s karma or something, I guess. I won here, so I tried to smash it up.
“All them sorry saps (drivers), they take it home in one piece and put it on their shelf, man. I break that thing up and spread it within the team so everybody’s got a piece.
“It didn’t break according to plan. I was actually hoping to get more pieces for the guys on the team. We’ll go back to the shop and cut it up, and they can have nice, smooth pieces of it.”
