23XI Racing Team’s No. 45 driver Kurt Busch had a day to forget in the rescheduled race at Dover Motor Speedway.
Busch’s first season with the 23XI Racing team is not going as expected as the veteran is struggling to make his mark in the Cup Series with his new team. The rescheduled race at Dover proved another miserable finish for the No. 45 driver.

With a slight touch from the No. 16 car of A. J. Allmendinger from behind, Busch lost control of the car and made heavy contact with the inside wall on lap 188.
Angry Busch was then heard screaming:
“We got fucking turned; everything is f**ked up.”
Busch’s form has gone from bad to worse in the last six races of the season, finishing under 30 for the fourth time in the last six races. He finished 31st in the race at Dover.
Tough stretch for Kurt Busch continues. If they can't get it fixed, this appears it could be the fourth finish of 32nd or worse in the last six races.

The good thing is that it is only the 11th race of the season and Busch has a lot of time to bring his season back on track and prove his team that he still has something to offer in the NASCAR top tier.
