Joe Gibbs Racing’s Kyle Busch’s primary sponsor, Mars Chocolate North America who sponsor the No.18 through their M&M’s brand in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series issued the following the statement condemning the actions of Busch’s actions following his fight with Team Penske’s Joey Lagano at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday.

The recent actions by Kyle Busch are not consistent with the values of Mars Chocolate North America. While we are disappointed with the situation, we hope the drivers and team members involved learn from this experience and continue to grow as professional athletes representing the sport.

NASCAR officials have confirmed that they will take no action against either Lagano or Busch.
