"In Busch's eyes, it was a cherished moment, a place where he can win a race and not hear boos. At this track, the fans love him" is a fantasy.
I was at both races and can promise you that the only thing louder than the boos, when they announced his name, were the cheers when he wrecked and was out of the race.
Maybe you or Kyle are not hear that form your location?

OH, grow up. Kyle is the best and I have been at the earlier races and they do cheer him. probably some nut job like yourself is the one booing.

I'm worried that I have gotten to old to watch racing because I think my eyes and ears are beginning to fail me. My ears keep hearing Kyle speak maturely and even graciously even after his engine has failed him in front his hometown fcrowd and my apparently failing eyes keep seeing him act rationally and reasonable. Could Kyle really be speaking and acting this way? One more week of this and I fear there'll be no vistage of the real Kyle left.

I lol'd when I heard the fans cheering when he fell out of the race sunday. It was so awesome. And that's his home track. LOL.

His home track where many out of towners show up on race day.

I pay more attention to the message boards than I do the fans in the stands and Kyle's fan base is growing. Not only that, many non Kyle fans speak well of him and even defend him.

Message boards give a better indication of a drivers likeability than fans in the stands. IMO
