KANSAS CITY, Mo. - When Kurt Busch showed up twenty minutes late to a master BBQ class at Jack Stack, the reason made the crowd erupt in laughter.
"We got pulled over!" he said.
Getting tips from some of the city's best BBQ chefs, Busch talked about the upcoming race at the Kansas Speedway, the fourth in The Chase.
"It could really hurt you if you do poorly," he said before talking about what The Chase has done for NASCAR. "It gave us a post season. It's hard to keep up that intensity for 36 races, but with these 10, you can."
