The No. 18 Toyota driver was in downtown Grand Rapids when he needed a ride to the track and caught Uber driver George Berridge - who happened to be a longtime NASCAR fan - totally off-guard, according to an MLive.com story.

"I yelled, 'Rowdy Busch,'" said Berridge, a big-time race fan. "He said, 'Yeah, that's me.' And then I told him, 'Are you ready to get your a** kicked tonight?'

"He said, 'Dude, my Uber driver is going to start the ride like this? Seriously?' It was epic. I looked down and saw the name Kyle on my phone and said, 'Oh, man.' That wasn't a very good way to start the ride."

Busch finished third in the short-track late model event Monday, after coming in fourth in Sunday's Cup Series race and sixth in Saturday's XFINITY Series one.

Eventually, Berridge told Busch he was just messing around with him, and he ended up taking a selfie with the 2015 Cup Series champion. But he also said that after talking with Busch, his perspective has changed. More from the Uber driver, via MLive.com:

For Clint Bowyer, Sonoma Raceway is a lot like Martinsville .
Clint Bowyer had an immediate attraction to Sonoma Raceway because this track behaves like a twisted Martinsville.In fact, Bowyer enters the Toyota/SaveMart 350 with seven top-five finishes in 12 starts that includes a runner-up finish in last year’s Sonoma race. If not for a couple of misfortunes (crash damage in 2010 and an electrical problem in 2016), he might well have swept the top 10 since scoring that first top five as a sophomore.
