Kyle Busch Motorsports Sues NASCAR Chevy Truck Team For $325,000

Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) is suing NASCAR Chevy Truck Series team, Rev Racing, for alleged breach of contract in 2023, according to a recent report from Jayski.

KBM, which formerly fielded Chevy Silverado RST race trucks in the Truck Series, joined forces with Rev to support the No. 2 Silverado driven by Nick Sanchez last year. KBM alleges that Rev failed to fulfill numerous payments as agreed upon during the 2023 racing season, resulting in $325,000 in unpaid fees and leading to the lawsuit.

Rev issued a statement indicating that it is addressing the accounting matter and that it expects to resolve the matter amicably.

As a reminder, KBM ceased operations as a NASCAR Chevy Truck Series team after the 2023 racing season and sold its assets to Spire Motorsports. As a result of the sale, Rev was adopted by Spire, bringing Sanchez and the No. 2 Silverado on board alongside Rajah Caruth in the No. 71 Silverado and Chase Purdy in the No. 77 Silverado.

Sanchez recently earned his first win in the Trucks at Daytona on February 16th, 2024. Sanchez rode a damaged race truck to the end of the race, which finished under yellow after wrecks prompted Overtime attempts. Purdy, meanwhile, was a DNF after being involved in a crash, while Caruth salvaged a third-place finish.

While it is absent from the Trucks, KBM still fields race cars for owner Kyle Busch and his son, Brexton, in dirt racing and other motorsports events. Busch himself drives the No. 8 Chevy Camaro ZL1 in the Cup Series, which is fielded by Richard Childress Racing. He recently announced intent to compete in five Truck Series races during 2024, driving a third entry for Spire. Busch is currently the winningest driver in the history of the division.

  • If the guy is going to pay up amicably then why does Kyle have to sue him for his money? You shouldn't have to sue someone to get paid. I ran a industrial business for 34 years and I can tell you there's all kinds of dead beats and con artists out there! There should be a debtors prison like the good old days! You don't pay, tough luck in the can!

  • Where did it ever say he was going to pay?
    I think you just like to play devil's advocate and have your name in lights!Why don't you stick to things you know? Like being a dick!

    • In the 3rd paragraph 🤣 forget your glasses? Or just can't read when you're to worried about calling other people names while being one yourself? 😅
