I agree.. Love watching him on Trading Paint, he's a decent debater.

I would like to see AJ in his car.

I agree, sad but true he just never quite cut it as a Cup driver. I do like to watch him on TV.
Dill, you are right, he is easy on the eyes, at least on my eyes anyhow!!! LOL!

Sponsors like a guy that has a chance to win. Kyle Petty is not one of those.

Kyle seems to have given up. No fire left in the belly. Sad to not have a Petty in a car, but he needs to let someone else drive.

PS: I don't care much how he looks

According to Chocolate Myers on Sirius radio, Patti, Kyle's wife, said over the weekend that Kyle probably had run his last race, that he was being forced out of the car. Chocolate didn't elaborate on who was forcing him out of the car. Now, just to set the record straight, there was a time when Kyle was just as competitive as any driver on the circuit. In the late 80's and early 90's he owned the track at Rockingham, no one could touch him. Time takes toll though and it's time for Kyle to move into the booth and let us enjoy him even more than we have on the track. I think he's going to be this eras "Gentleman Ned". There's some great folks in the booth now but we're still missing something from Benny passing on that I think Kyle can bring to the air.

It will be a sad day when The Pettys are no more in NASCAR.

I love watching and listening to Kyle.
I hope he isn't being forced out as Whoyakidding said. I hate that for anyone. These drivers live to race and it has got to be the hardest thing to be forced out not just retire on their own.

I heard Patti on the Claire B Lang show on Friday say that Kyle wouldn't be driving the 45 anymore, but she said he's still hoping to find another ride. Doesn't seem likely, but she said he still wants to be a driver.

I agree on his commentating prowess, I also agree that it is time for him to move aside, let some youngster get in the car.

I also believe that something drastic needs to be done by Dodge to make their cars competitive!

I say if he comes with a sponsorship, Mikey needs to hire him. Wells Fargo is a strong company with plenty of money. If you ever borrowed any Money from them you would know why. GoooMikey!!!!!!!!

Good idea nasfan. If he ran one of those JAP-rides from POS racing, he wouldn't have to learn anything......."new" . He would be running just pretty much the same, as he has, for the past several years.......at the back of the pack and fighting to stay in the Top-35.
Maybe he could take over that #00.
10-4?
WOOF-WOOF!
How about Benito in his birthday suite behind the wheel of the #00?

Well, you know how it goes. Follow the Money!
Mabe Kyle would use some of his "old" talent if he was out of the comfort zone of his own company.

That must be the interview Chocolate was making reference to. Having to give up what you love doing when it isn't your choice is tough. I know, I did it. I was twelve years into a great Army career and lost a knee in a training accident. Giving it up was the toughest thing I ever did but I couldn't compete anymore on a stiff leg that was as good as it was ever going to be.

Better make a run for then. You might get flushed.
