Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch tweet thoughts on Phoenix penalty
Kurt Busch got off to a rough start at Sunday's Chase elimination race at Phoenix International Raceway.
The driver of the No. 41 Stewart-Haas Racing Chevrolet beat pole-sitter Jimmie Johnson to the start-finish line on the initial start of the race and was forced to serve a pass-through penalty on pit road.
Ultimately, Busch ran out of time to overcome the setback and was eliminated from the Chase. On Monday, Busch tweeted his thoughts on the matter.
Johnson was also asked about the penalty. Here's what he had to say.
I guess he beat me to the line... He didn't jump it though. An unfortunate formality. https://t.co/q8O4iGkX41— Jimmie Johnson (@JimmieJohnson) November 16, 2015
