Count Jeff Burton among the drivers recently not pleased with Kyle Busch as the two traded angry words after Sunday's Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Still in the midst of controversy with teammate Denny Hamlin, Busch drew the wrath of Burton after Sunday's final restart. The duo made contact and Burton slipped from a potential top-10 finish to 25th and was not pleased when the checkered flag flew.

Burton confronted Busch on pit road and some angry words were exchanged before they parted ways.

"I like racing with Kyle," Burton said. "I do. I enjoy it. When he gets over-aggressive and I pay the price, I am not going to tolerate it. I'm just not going to put up with it. I don't mind racing with him or mind him being aggressive but I'm not going to be the victim of it."

Busch said Burton's Richard Childress Racing teammate Clint Bowyer was in the mix as well and that he wasn't the culprit of the incident.

"The 33 car jumped low after the start/finish line and pulled to my inside, so that forced me to the middle three-wide with the 33, myself and the 31," Busch said. "I didn't get a whole lot of room. I was pinching the 33 as tight as I could trying not to wreck him and I was trying not to get squeezed in the middle there with the 31 and get pinched and spin him out.

"It's the last restart of the race, it's time to go and you've got to make some bold moves. It wasn't me that made it three-wide, it was Burton's teammate so why don't you go have a chat with him? But if I did anything wrong, I would be more than happy to sit with Jeff Burton and talk with him about it and have him point it out on a replay with me."

Burton wasn't buying Busch's explanation.

"When he starts affecting me because of his aggressiveness, I just will not put up with it," Burton said. "I've been around here long enough, I just will not tolerate it."
