Before the NASCAR playoff elimination race, Kyle Busch came dangerously close to wrecking, but he managed to pull off an incredible save.


Anyone who disputes Kyle Busch's skill as a NASCAR driver is most likely just unimpressed with the divisive racer.

One of the best in the business, Busch produced this incredible save during practise on Friday at Bristol Motor Speedway after his car spun and came dangerously

close to colliding with Austin Cindric. Busch, who announced this week that he will switch from Joe Gibbs Racing to Richard Childress Racing in 2023,

appeared to get a little loose in one of the Tennessee short track's turns and spun a little as he tried to keep the car from hitting anything during practise ahead

of Saturday night's postseason elimination race, the first of three in the 10-race Cup Series playoffs. Busch, however, was in a precarious position due

 to the banking and a lack of full control over his No. 18 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota. Just as Cindric in the No. 2 Team Penske Ford was passing him on the inside,

his car briefly began to slide back down the track. Busch undoubtedly used the brakes as firmly as he could to prevent totaling both his and Cindric's vehicle.

Seriously, the rescue by Busch kept both playoff drivers from a disastrous outcome.

He then explained what had happened and said that he didn't think the spin had harmed his car.
