Olathe, Kan. – Kyle Busch’s adventurous week continued on Wednesday when he was dumped hard by a fan during a go-karting event set up by Kansas Speedway.

One witness, who said he was behind the incident when it took place, said one of the fans sharing the track during the publicity event pinched Busch into the wall so hard that all four wheels of Busch’s kart came off the ground.

Busch parked his kart and left the indoor track. He left a bit early but event organizers said Busch’s alotted time had run out anyway.

Busch did not appear to be hurt and was friendly with a reporter as he left the event.

The event was attended by local media and a select group of fans. He signed autographs, posed for pictures and interacted with fans for almost two hours.

Busch became the first driver in history to win all three of NASCAR’s major touring series races the same weekend last week when he won the Camping World Truck Series, Nationwide and Sprint Cup races at Bristol Motor Speedway.

During the Nationwide race on Friday at Bristol, he had an on-track run-in with Brad Keselowski on the final lap.

Keselowski called Busch an “ass” during driver introductions prior to Saturday’s Cup race.
