I would agree with you regarding Kurt Busch. He has issues, IMO.

However, I believe you are mistaken when it comes to Kyle Busch. JMO.

I think Kyle is far more mature than his brother and far more talented. He can drive a car no matter how its handling. He was doing things at Daytona that even Tony couldn't do. This kid has talent and if it is cultivated properly he's going to be one of the best drivers NASCAR has ever seen. And I think Tony is the one to help him get there.

Kyle does drive like a mad man, but that is why he can catch the leader at California or Daytona all by himself. Most of those guys are too old and experienced to drive like that.. I hope that Kyle can drive like that for the rest of his career. He is very exciting to watch race.. a lot like Tony was before the COT and DW making him out to be the bad guy until he decided that he had to play give and take

I agree with you but you know, in the end, his inability to stay in a single line is what ruined the draft for him and Smoke.. I told my husband he must suffer from ADHD because he just can't stay in a single line for a single second

The thing that is really cool for kyle is that he finally is not the third wheel.. he honestly has so much talent but he was stifled at HMS. Tony said last night that it was Kyle who insisted that the 3 JGR teams all get together to compare notes after happy hour.. that is cool.

I have to give credit where credit is due.. Rowdy is one heck of a driver.. Like DW said he's the only one that can drive all 3 groves at once. The dang guy is nuts. Possessed is probably a good word for him.

I just hope he doesn't get too rowdy and end up taking other drivers out.

See but think about it, when was the last time he took someone out?? I'm surprised at his age, he's what 23/24? I know he's younger than me and he has some serious discipline that most drivers that age lack. And I think he's doing so much better because he isn't the third wheel on this team, he really feels like he is part of the team. The nice thing is that he can bring a lot of the Hendrick philosophy to JGR and help make them the powerhouse that they can be.

Have you noticed Denny Hamlin isn't mentioned that much anymore unless he is in a wreck? Kyle is good and very daring. He ain't afraid of nothing.

I think he is only 22.. VERY YOUNG!! Well as far as taking drivers out.. A lot of the truck drivers think if it wasn't for his over aggresive driving that the accident w/Skinner may not have happened. To me it was hard to tell who was actually at fault or if anyone was really at fault.

The kid can drive though... I guess being that young you have no fear at all. Just like teenage drivers that think nothing can happen to them.

i think the best move kyle made was leaving hendricks.....he can show his talent as one of the best drivers out there.he doesn't have someone asking him to let one of his teammates go around.

He drives like he's on the thruway. To the right, to the left, down the middle. Except for the middle part (unless it's three lanes) to him it seems like he's driving a regular car on the highway.

Yes Kyle has mentioned that they did this at HMS. I must say though it is a no brainer! If I was in a race against Denny and Smoke HECK YA i want to here how they handle! I'm sure there is still a little no one needs to know going on! After all Kyle has loose lips! not all information needs to pass on to the media or other teams.

Your right he does. I Just can't get Last year when was Tony was doing that out of my mind and DW saying you just can't do that it is reckless! I think drivers will be okay with it till the 20th race or so and points are an issue and someone gets cut off or taken out! all heck will break loose! I don't think he is any better than any other top drivers on the track. He just doesn't know that it really gets you no were until the last few laps to drive like a maniac. intersting to watch but could be hard on your reputation in the long run!

I sure wouldn't want him on the highway next to me, it would scare the pants off of me. But then again, maybe it would be better having him next to me that some of the wackos that are on the highways around here.

I agree - Kyle is not like Kurt. Plus, he can outdrive his older brother.
