Yes they did, and I for one liked Juan's style of racing, sometimes did he drive with his ego instead of his brain yes I also think he did, but Tony also is a I will push you out of the way type of driver
I'm just glad we have racing back, lol. The off weak and family thing was too much. Especially since I spent it with my boyfriends family and not mine, lol. They actually do this thing every year where they take their blood sugar, eat a whole bunch and do it again to see how much it went up! I'm like are you serious people!!!!!!!!

Kyle Busch started from the pole and led a race-high 125 laps. But on Lap 162 of 225, Busch was battling Clint Bowyer too hard, lost control and slid into the No. 2 Chevy of Bowyer. Busch slid down the track and into the grass as Bowyer maintained control and took the lead.

A piece from an article on NASCAR.com . Like I said the boy is his own worse enemy.

I know I'm jt jumpin in here but I am just ying to say I am so glad the "Mars" car has finally got a driver! My dad hates him, he's a junior fan, and that's cool with me. I just think now he's (Kyle) got something to prove, gusty enough,and got the marbles to try. And I can't wait to watch!

hahahahah, The Late Great Dale Earnhardt Sr, is being compared to this japanese punk, u people r hilarious. Another stupid writer trying to stir up some reaction, because I guess there isnt anything else to write about at FOX Sports. Kyle Busch is a little punk, who never had southern roots, and was "given" a ride, not deserved like Dale Sr did. If it wasn't for Kurt.... Kyle would probably be in the East Series. And even though Earnhardt would shove people out of the way to win, he wouldve never ran up Jarret's bumper, when he was leading by 2 seconds on the last lap. I dont call it guts, I call it stupidity. RIP Dale Sr.

By the way I was referring to the Atlanta race three weeks ago, when Kyle, run up Jarrett's ass and wouldnt stop pushing him, even in the corners, when he was leading on the last lap by like 2 seconds. Shows what an arrogant pos busch is.

Kyle is one of only a few drivers in Nascar that is there to race to win. Most are there to gain points for as they say "the bigger picture". Gibbs has the best driver line up as far as teams go to be out there to win races not points. The point system Nascar now has totally sucks and favors drivers that are just there to point race. I dont think there will ever be another Dale Earnhardt. Love him or hate him the man gave us some exciteing races. If Kyle can give us half the excitement of Dale that is what the fans and Nascar needs to wake up the sleepers they have given us so far this year.

Oh, I agree with you completely. That was the tackiest move I've seen in a long time... Well that was until this past week when he was racing Wimmer like he was racing for the win when he was 2 laps down. He's good but he is going to get someone hurt or killed if he doesn't watch out.

You must be smokin' crack, son, if you think Kyle Bitch, I mean Busch, is of ANY resemblance on the track to Dale Sr., you must also think Davidson will win the NCAA basketball championship! Don't even speak about that topic, as Kyle has never even one ONE title. Fan base-wise, the kid will never measure up. He also has alot of growing up to do. Do I see Dale SR.-esque qualities? NO! Sr. was never a snot-nosed punk-a$$ jerk!

I have been following racing for 30 years now and there is no driver that ha compared or compares now to the Intimidator.

1)Kyle Busch probably is the closest driver right now to the personality and persona Dale Sr. projected---yeah right Dale coud sway nascar with his persona Kyle could never dream of such a thind , and handles a car like a rookie trying too hard to prove himself he lost control of his car and tore it up.

2)Parellel that to the Earnhard's third year in Cup and you get the same thing!-----Yeah right earnhardt won his 1st cup the year after his rookie year and the next year how does kyles first three even come close......hmmmm

I like kyle he is a good driverbut not the best wheel man he wrecks himself more than anyone and besides Earnhardt could race any car you gave him loose, tight, or sometimes even undrivable. Look at his IROC record Kyle dont match up. Sorry Kyle fans..........lmao

“Merry Christmas!!”

There is no way this driver could do that! There is only one number "3", Kyle would be lucky to even get close to him to talk to him if Dale were alive! What a joke!

Anybody can drive up on your bumper and push you out of the way. That is what made the Nr 3 guy famous. There were dozens of drives every bit as good as that Nr 3 guy.

Not much of a void to fill!
Wow! Chicago area fan that never was really into the whole racing thing growing up. This sport, and yes, it is a sport, and yes the drivers are athletes. Has changed so much in my short fan hood. My interest was sparked to fill the void between football and baseball in the 90's. The surround sound and soap opera crap trash talking between the old school and the new school made it so interesting and fun to watch. Never really had a favorite driver, just wanted to see the Big Dogs up front at the end of the race taking thier cars, talents, and lives to the brink of the end. It happened that day in Daytona. Never will forget Waltrip saying from the booth as he was trying to celebrate michaels win, "hope Dales ok?"

You mean the race that he took himself out? Hum, just lost complete control all by himself.
I'm not saying Rowdy isn't a good drive because he is but part of being a great drive is someone that has control of his car all the time and not over driving the way he does.
Right now Rowdy is on a mission and he is going to end up being his worse enemy. Just like Saturday night.
That's exactly the race I'm talking about. Any other driver on the track would have tore that car all to pieces. Had he not been as close to the wall as he was, he would have straighted it up without doing any damage. There isn't a driver out there that hasn't let one get out from under him occassionally including Johnson and Gordon. If I remember correctly both have thrown away a race themselves in the last couple of years the same way. The fact is after tagging the wall and another car he straightened it up and drove thru grass and back onto the track. If JGR doesn't want him to run the car to win, they better find another driver. Anyone that thinks this kid will ever play the lay around and wait game is just fooling themselves. It's not in his nature.

There are very few drivers in Nascar that are there to win. Most are points racers. Gibbs has two of theses guys who are out there to win Kyle and Tony. Kyle may very well be the best driver in the cup series. Love him or hate him makes no difference his accomlishments prove he is one of the best.
