Kurt Busch tapped Jimmie Johnson with seven laps to go at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday, sending Johnson into what passes for an angry fit for the four-time champ. Busch claims he was not trying to spin out his rival, saying, "Driving into turn three, I had all intentions of passing him on the inside. Your motive is always to pass a guy clean … I just got into him in the left rear." Riiiiiiiiight. Somehow Jimmie found a way to win. Jimmie always finds a way to win.
