As you can expect, a ton of passionate Kurt Busch fans were rather peeved after their favorite driver pitted from the lead in Sunday’s Coke Zero Sugar 400, only to see the race end a lap later due to weather.
Busch and his crew chief Matt McCall mutually decided on the pit stop as NASCAR had given the one lap to green signal.
Then, a lightning strike halted the race. It never restarted.
Tuesday, McCall responded to critics of his decision to pit in a hilarious video posted to the Chip Ganassi Racing Twitter account.
