I'm pretty certain this article will get mixed reviews, but I really want you to take it at face value and put your personal loyalties aside for just a moment.

Truth be known, Kyle Busch probably is the closest driver right now to the personality and persona Dale Sr. projected. He's just as good a car handler as Dale was. Anyone doubting that needs to watch the Sat. Nationwide race.
Maybe he can drive, but I don't think he has the stamina. As soon a the going gets tough he bailed out on the Nationwide and likely the trucks also! Cry Cry Cry I didn't win feel sorry for me! he needs to suck it up and go back out digging. SR was always digging!

I wondered if Gibbs had a little talk about priorities.

I think driving in all three series took its toll. Flying cross country, getting into the car or truck, I think would be too much for any one person.
By the way, Kyle raced a clean race Sunday. And, contrary to what anybody says, there were cheers galore for him. I didn't used to like him, but he has grown on me.

No one can replace Dale. No one. Kyle may be a great racer but I don't see with how NASCAR is now, him lasting with his attitude.

Kyle has an attitude, but Dale didn't? Come on. Dale was ornery as hell. Kyle is more like Dale than any other Cup driver IMO.

This is the most laughable bullsh*t I've ever read. Kyle Busch wouldn't make a good pimple on Dale Sr.'s butt much less be a replacement for him. Sr. would have pinned this big eared kid to the wall and taught him a little respect real quick. Sr. always let you know he was coming and you had the opportunity to get out of the way or be got out of the way. Kyle just runs up and dumps people. He's pulled that BS in Truck and Nationwide lately till I think that's why he's laying on right now from those series. That doesn't work though, Ron Hornaday doesn't forget.

Kyle is doing his best to fill the void, but he has a ways to go. He can flat drive a racecar but he needs to back off the sarcasm and give the fans time to warm up to him. It will happen if he just drives and keeps his mouth shut. He has talent to spare, but his arrogance is making it hard to like him.

Just how did he let the other drivers know he was coming? As good a driver Kyle is, the other drivers must know he is coming.
I read in Nascar Scene that when Jeremy Mayfield knocked Sr. out of the way in one race and they asked Sr. what he said to Mayfield, he said he showed him he (Mayfield) was #l. Does that say something about the guy?
I can bet that a lot of these devoted fans of Sr., who didn't like him when he was racing, became his most devoted fans.

Just how the hell do you know? Are you one of his neighbors? Do you follow him around? Has he asked for your pity 'cause he doesn't have any friends? I'll ask again, how many friends do you have here or away from the Internet? I bet none.

Horse Hockey! Everyone is replaceable, even dale Sr. Dale's record isn't so great that he can't be overtaken, and with the drive and talent that Kyle has, he could be the one that folks are talking about for many years to come.

Kyle doen't drive a racecar any differently that Dale did. He goes to the front and races everyone like it the last lap. He pushes and shoves sometimes, but most do, and Dale did. So stop thinking that Dale Sr was the greatest ever... that is debatable. Time will tell.

What a load of crap! Kyle Busch wins a few races and he is filling the void left by DE???? This kid is a cry baby- whines when he does not get his way.If this pansy would have racr 10 or 15 years ago DE would have put him in the fence. I will say this, he has talent.

A few races? Where have you been? I think you are mistaken. You are confusing Kyle with Jr.
I don't remember reading anything about Kyle comparing himself to Dale, Sr. It's the media that has done that.
