he is still the best driver in the series. not too agressive but can drive the wheels off any vehicle. all the other drivers are jealous of him & his career. The other drivers always compare to Kyle & use his name,. he is in their heads to lose too. they are soooo obvious when they compare. but I do admit this has not been his year but he will rebound. he is the greatest & really really really loves to race. he has my family votes. & no we are not dumb, but we are entitled to our opinion just as other on here.

I agree with everything Duh1 wrote. It will be a good day when Kyle gets back to himself. And it wouldn't hurt if all of the drivers were judged by the same standards. Kyle always seems to get the brunt of Nascar's decisions. Here's hoping he and Kurt are able to do what they need to do to get going this season. Kyle is the reason I started watching racing; it is so much fun to see how a good, talented, intelligent driver can make watching enjoyable.

I love younger men. I have dated only men at least 5 years younger and as much as 10 years younger than me for many years. I love the energy and a nice tight bod. Older men just aren't the same, different mentality. I seem to have more in common with younger guys. They're actually more fun and are usually more interested in me. I'm flattered. I think younger men like cougars because they have no agenda, don't usually want to get married and are usually very independent and don't need a man to take care of them. I meet younger men on the site named cougarloving.com
This thread is about stock car racing not how much you enjoy young men, you sound like a gray haired hooker hahaha!!

What are you smokin' besides Lil Busch's pole? Best driver? Hardly. He's a legend in his own mind never winning a Sprint Cup championship. You gonna miss him when he's not going to be in the Chase this year. Let him drive his own car and get pulled over for speeding. He can do that. LOL

^ Not a Kyle Bush fan here by any means...I sure don't count him outta the chase ,just yet.
The kid is one heck of a driver no doubt about that. Only this season, it's plain & simple to see, this has been one of those season's.. If it wasn't for bad luck, Kyle would'nt have any at all!
I hope to see him make it in. jmo.

Being himself is what got him a hairs breadth away from losing his gig.

I admit as a fan, I was interested to see what he was going to do next, get into it with a driver, someone from the media, etc, as the next guy... But even his biggest fans should realize he was very close to have his wheels taken away, as well as the sponsors.

He needs to find the happy medium someplace that will still make him a fiery competitor, while not showing the traits that almost got him kicked out of NASCAR. JMHO.

Very nice post!!!! Kyle did just about lose it all by being himself. Hes growing up and realizing that the "Rowdy" personna he was making for himself was not the route to go. He is a very talented young man behind the wheel of a racecar. Im afraid if he goes back to being himself eventually nobody will want much to do with him. sponsors, Gibbs, etc, even NASCAR, they have told many drivers that they didnt need them, but that they needed NASCAR. I think after Richard Childress put his "Rowdy" butt in a head lock and popped his jaw last year reality started settling in and Kyle realized that folks just wasnt going to put up with him attemting to be something he wasnt........rowdy!!!!
