Kyle Busch, Kasey Kahne place Super Bowl wager

1 Comment

Call it the first official rivalry of the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, even though it has nothing to do with anything on track.

Kyle Busch and Kasey Kahne are devout fans of the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, respectively. But while Kahne is from Enumclaw, Wash. and thus grew up a huge Seahawks fan, Busch has a Broncos allegiance despite not growing up in the Mile High City.

Anyway, with the two teams off to Super Bowl XLVIII at the Meadowlands next week, Kahne and Busch have a wager on the line for the winner.

Nearly identical tweets from the pair followed…

Game on, gents.

BAKU, Azerbaijan (AP) — Daniel Ricciardo says he would relish the challenge of having Lewis Hamilton as his teammate if he joins Mercedes next year.

Ricciardo is out of contract at Red Bull at the end of the season and expressed interest in joining teams like Mercedes or Ferrari to help him challenge for the championship.

The Australian says he would “love to obviously be challenged against the best and Lewis is obviously up there.”

He adds: “I don’t want to say it’s just Lewis I’m looking for but that would be a good challenge.”

Ricciardo says he won’t accept a faster car if it means playing second fiddle to an established star.

He says “there’s always been really good clarity and fairness (at Red Bull) … and I would expect that environment everywhere.”
