KANSAS CITY, Kansas -

It's started with a wreck in practice on Saturday. Right then he should have known it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad race.

On lap one he almost got taken out by Dancia Patrick's spin. He should have know it was going to be a terrible horrible, no good very bad race.

On lap183, Busch spun after contact with Juan Pablo Montoya. He won't miss JPM. Kyle's car wasn't damaged badly, but he should have known then, it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad race.

The final blow came 17 laps later, when an accident with Carl Edwards and Jamie McMurray ended his terrible, horrible, no good, very bad race.

"I have no idea what happened on the last one," Busch told a group of reporters after the crash. "We are in Kansas, right? Apparently, everybody just run over the 18 car and get what you need."

Kyle Busch's Kansas rave definitely do not give him what he needed. A 34th place finish, dropped him from third in the standings 12 points back, to fifth and 35th points behind.

Busch will not be counting down the days til his Kansas return.

"The racetrack is the worst racetrack I've ever driven on," Busch said. "The tire is the worst tire I've ever driven on. Track position is everything. You can't do anything unless you're out front and then you get back in traffic. (Winner) Kevin Harvick couldn't pass me and he led the first 80 laps of the race so I would say it was pretty pathetic."
