02:24 PM ET 07.17 | NASCAR Driver Ryan Newman had some strong words to say about competitor Kyle Busch after Busch referred to Newman as an "idiot" and an "ogre." Newman appeared on Sirius XM Radio's NASCAR Channel and shared his less-than-flattering thoughts about Busch. "I'm just afraid if I re-arranged his face I might fix it. He's frustrated finishing third or wherever he was after hitting me first and then getting a little rub down the straightaway. Just imagine how I feel. It is what it is. We know that he's not very bright. He's a heck of a talent but he's not very bright. And I'll leave it at that." The feud between the two began when Newman drove aggressively during Sunday's Camping World RV Sales 301, causing Kurt Busch, Kyle's older brother, to crash. The mini-wreck also involved Matt Kenseth.

I can't understand why any of these scrawny wimps ever talks about fighting at all. How big is Newman? Maybe 5'8" and 150-160lbs? Has he ever been in a real live fight in his life? Probably not. Does he scare anybody? No.Just shut up and drive Ryan, you had an opportunity to take the high road and let Shrubby look like the fool, but instead you joined him.

But one of the meanest animals on earth pound for pound is not very big but kills things three times it size a wolverine.........and a Warthog ain't very big either but you get him cornered you better have God on yer side or a big gun or he's gonna rip you to shreds seen it happen before.

Got to love how Newman is blamed for the Kurt Busch wreck when it was Busch and Kenseth driving aggressively.

Some of the most entertaining comments in many moons ... LOL Is Michael Buffer available for the Indy Race?

Can anyone here imagine driving to work everyday with the same cars (and drivers) around them doing the same stupid things everyday? Yeah they get paid a lot but to live in a trailer, deal with all the car exhaust and really have nothing that compares to normal life.

Not for me, more power to the drivers for not killing one another.

I can. Silly logging trucks and lowbeds going too slow too.

And I don't get buckets of money to do it either....

Kyle should not be calling anyone an "ogre"......he's the oddest looking driver out there.......but who cares about childish name calling in the heat of the moment.......His comment about Newman being jobless was a low blow..

Seriously though, can you imagine racing without any of these heated moments......it would be even more boring.

"We know that he's not very bright. He's a heck of a talent but he's not very bright."

Pretty much sums it up.
