Kyle Busch has added another chapter to the rivalry between himself and the sport’s most popular driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr. On Friday morning, reacting to the news that crew chief Tony Eury Jr. had been fired from the No. 88 team, Busch said, "It’s never Junior; it’s always the crew chief."

In other words: Earnhardt’s struggles are his own damn fault.

Busch said new crew chief Lance McGrew will have "his hands full," and added, "And if Junior doesn’t run well, then he (McGrew) is going to be the problem again."

Dale Earnhardt Jr. – you just got called out.

Video from Busch’s Friday morning press conference is below. Busch starts talking about Earnhardt around the 1:20 mark.
