Kurt Busch lets ESPN's Dr. Jerry Punch know how much he dislikes him

(By Reid Cherner, USA TODAY) - During Sunday's Ford 400 at Homestead, analyst Jerry Punch tried to interview Kurt Busch after the driver was forced out of the race with transmission problems.

What resulted was a profanity-laced tirade by Busch who didn't want to wait until the ESPN control booth threw it to Punch.

The language makes it NSFW but you can listen to it here. (Earphones definitely suggested)

In the end, Punch decided he had enough and walked away from Busch telling his producers, "never mind, never mind."
