Fans Suspect Major ‘Beef’ As Kyle Busch’s NASCAR Driver Gets ‘Bob Pockrocked’

Beef is common in NASCAR, and especially in all sports. But sometimes we see drivers fighting against journalists. And that’s exactly what happened when Kyle Busch’s driver, John Hunter Nemechek of his Truck Series team, tweeted about a high-profile journalist.

And fans suspect there is beef.

KBM driver Nemechek had his race cut short after a wreck during the Texas Motor Speedway Truck race. And prominent NASCAR reporter Bob Pockrass interviewed the driver and reported that he felt Justin Allgaier ran him over.

But the Truck Series driver was clearly unhappy with what he wrote. He claimed he never even said someone ran him over. In fact, he didn’t even say the word “crush” when he tweeted back at the reporter to clarify.

It certainly sounds a bit passive-aggressive, and that’s understandable. It looks like a misunderstanding between the driver and the journalist, which is not too rare. But obviously, as a credible journalist, Pockrass has to defend himself and what he said, what he did.

And fans began to suspect there was some beef between the two.

Wow! Pockrass silenced Busch’s driver. Although he made it clear that there is no beef, he is just clearing the air.

Still, he certainly made an iconic moment in NASCAR Twitter history (if that’s even a thing). But as long as we’re talking about Kyle Busch Motorsports, we can’t get past it without addressing the elephant in the room.

Sure, KBM is a Toyota team, but Busch heads to Richard Childress Racing, leaving the Toyota family behind. So what will happen?

As you can see from the title, Chevrolet won. Busch announced that KBM will transition to an all-Chevrolet team in 2023.

However, this is not the best news for John Hunter Nemechek, who, being part of the Toyota family, must leave KBM and look elsewhere for new pastures. So what do you think will happen? Let us know in the comments.
