...and um Kyle got 8 before Carl did.
Doesnt matter who got what first. What difference does that make? I'll take 8 wins later, hopefully in the chase over 8 at the start of the season anyway.

Look at what getting those 8 early did for him!! The chase just chucked all his winning efforts when they evened up the points, except for the bonus. I guess its best he got the wins while he could.

Nobody is debating his driving skill. But since this is the guy you love so much, check his records and answer me this: Is Kyle being put in 3 series because he's a great driver, or is he a great driver because he races in 3 series? All that extra practice and participating in races only make you better, more experienced.

I thought I read somewhere that Hendrick cars tested more than the other teams. Is that what made Jimmie such a great driver? Also, Kyle has raced in the Nationwide and Truck series and he has done great. The one race where Jimmie raced in the Truck series, did he not wreck? Yeah, that's because he didn't have as much practice as Kyle, as Kyle did not do as much testing as Jimmie in the Cup.

Testing is not the same as practice and race experience. FAR from it. Thats like you saying if you take a firearm to the target range, more often, you can handle yourself well in battle.

Well, it would help. You can't tell me that testing doesn't help the drivers. Why do you think they do it?

Kyle may have done well in the beginning but couldn't pull it together in the end and frankly the Driver of the Year should go to someone who is consistent, not someone who does well for a little while and then just sucks the rest of the time. Being a great driver consists of being good more often than not.

Kyle is a great driver. Due to bad luck, He hasn't been able to show his talent in the chase. Look for him to come back next year.

Kyle ranks high under his own power, but its the 18 team as a whole that has to pull it together for a championship or even to stay consistantly competitive. He can't do it all by himself.

What I think ruins it for him is conflict and mistakes. He spins to a stop on the inside of the field, and then goes into reverse and backs up and takes out another competitor. What the hell kinda move was that?

jimmie wasn't consistant in the beginning of the year. frankly the only driver who has been consistant all year is carl edwards. he won throughout the year and stayed up front during the chase.
if you remember, jimmie and most of HMS was awful the first 7 or 8 races because they didn't prepare for the cot full time this year because they were trying to win the championship last year. that's why the 48 finished laps down at california and vegas at the beginning of the year and why jeffy hasn't won yet.
Well I didn't say Jimmie deserved it (my name has more to do with the championship than anything). Carl in my opinion is a great candidate for DOY. We'll see though.

There's the video. Judge for yourself. McMurray was already spinning but had no damage until Kyle drove his car up onto the track. At the very end, u see him put it in reverse to back up.

For the longest time, I always thought how come when somebody spins, they dont hurry up and get on the track quick before so many cars pass by, but I never thought "Hey I'll try it in reverse!"

LOL

I will say it's odd that he threw it into reverse. I mean there's no way he would have turned his car without going back onto the track and he was lucky McMurray hit him to keep him from going out onto the track.

Hey they're all entitled to make mistakes, they're human too. But people should accept their favorite drivers make mistakes without getting offended when people point them out.

And IMO people who do equally well but screw up more often should rank lower, have less praise, and fewer rewards. Driver of the Year should go to one of the top guys who run cleanly and respectfully. All that crybaby crap when Carl did a bump and run on Kyle was rediculous. He should have expected that.

Thing to do is give the low line, haul ass off the high line and give it to Carl in the next turn instead. Then run like crazy before Carl can make up the ground LOL Better to be on offense and strike than hope that faster car doesnt do it to you.

Yep, it's easy for us to sit here and criticize how a driver drives. Especially if it's a driver we don't like. I suppose you think you could have done better. I don't think so.

It's real easy for you to criticize him, when you probably can't even get your fat arse into one of those things.
