When teammates in the garage experience issues on the track, it usually doesn’t end well for either side. In the case of Joe Gibbs Racing, two teammates waited nearly a week before even talking again.
Carl Edwards pulled the bump-and-run move on Kyle Busch during the final lap to win in Richmond. Initial reports were not positive for the teammates, but it appears they’ve made up after an image posted by Busch on Wednesday.
So what prompted Busch and Mars to team up to congratulate Edwards on his win? Rather than celebrating a win at Richmond, Busch got to don a ring after winning a championship last year — something Edwards hasn’t earned in his career.
Let’s just say the day before gave Busch reason to move on from the Richmond loss.
Moving forward, both drivers have two wins heading into Kansas Speedway, a track where they have a combined six top 10s in the last five races (Edwards 4, Busch 2). The feud on the track may have ended for JGR, but the team’s dominance in NASCAR is far from over.
