CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Kyle Busch has a message to those who have confused him with his brother, Kurt, in reporting about Kurt Busch’s recent court case.
“I think it’s stupid, I think people need to do a little bit more background before they write names or say names,’’ Kyle Busch said Monday during the NASCAR Sprint Cup media tour. “It’s not that hard to differentiate between two people that have the same last name. I think people need to do a better job and not be so slackish.’’
There have been some instances where Kyle Busch has been pictured or mentioned instead of his brother in the recent news about a hearing in a Dover, Del., family court involving Kurt Busch and his ex-girlfriend.
The case is a protective hearing order sought by Patricia Driscoll and gained national headlines after Kurt Busch said in court he believed Driscoll was a trained assassin. Summations are due shortly and a decision is expected soon afterward.
The Dover Police Department investigated Driscoll’s claim that Kurt Busch allegedly assaulted her in his motorhome in September at Dover International Speedway. The state Attorney General’s office has the report but has not yet decided if to pursue charges.
Kyle Busch was asked Monday how his brother is doing.
“Couldn’t tell you,’’ Kyle Busch said. “Haven’t spoken to him. Don’t know nothing. Trying to stay away from it all and let him handle his business.’’
Asked how feels about seeing his brother go through what he has, Kyle Busch said: “Obviously, it’s got to be painful for him. You don’t ever want to see anybody have to go through this sort of thing. Besides not getting too far involved in it, it’s about all I want to say.’’
