MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) Three contenders for the NASCAR championship have already given Kyle Busch a good run for the money three days before the race.
Busch and teammates Martin Truex Jr. and Denny Hamlin were stuck in New York City traffic with Kevin Harvick and the Joe Gibbs Racing trio decided Busch couldn't run to the hotel faster than they could get there by car. There was $1,000 on the line and a videographer on hand to follow Busch's jog through Manhattan snow flurries.
Hamlin, the ringleader of the impromptu contest, joked Thursday that sending Busch out for the run was part of a bigger plan.
