I dont know much about NASCAR, but i know enough to say that Kyle Busch is usually a ****. I know that he is agressive and wants to win, but spinning out guys and violently bumping guys isn't cool. Not to be a puss, but he could really get someone hurt or even KILLED, like a certain Dale Earnhardt.

So I say keep booing, there isnt anything wrond with booing. If the boos convince him to drive the right way, then keep up the boos

Dale Earnhardt died because he was not driving agressive, he was blocking the pack even though Michael and Dale Jr. were way ahead of them. if he would have had been agressive instead of passive he would be out there on Sunday afternoons beatin' and bangin' with Kyle.

NASCAR needs a guy like Kyle to fill the seats with some excitement instead of this honkey doory lets just be nice and not race the fenders off like David Pearson and Davey Allison and
Cale Yarborough used to when racin' was racin'.

Also as a side note, NASCAR needs to bring back the traditional tracks like Rockingham and the Labor Day weekend Darlington race, not this night **** that they have at boring California.

You're right about the tracks. Michigan, California and New Hampshire, all with two races each, suck for good racing. they need Rockingham and Darlington back in their regular spots.

So you think NASCAR needs a guy that puts his life and others lives in danger every race? That makes you a killer......

NASCAR needs Kyle Busch's intensity and love for the sport. They want guys out their competeing and driving fast. But I doubt Nascar wants people wiping out guys on purpose, I mean come on. Kyle needs to keep the spirit but lose the attitude.

booing is always going to be with any enjoyable sport. Boos need to be heard! You are telling people to stop booing??? What are you talking about, a TENNIS MATCH?

"O look here comes the serve"
"Wow that ball had a fair amount of spin on it"
"O did you see that back hand?"
"Yes I did that was quite impressive"
"Well both players seem to be really kind to each other"
"Very true, I love broadcasting a sport with no boos"
"Yes yes, it makes for such a calm and peaceful atmosphere"
"Indeed, if someone were to Boo I might wet myself"

Come on dude? Ur telling me u have never bood before? Let people Boo who they want to, especially if they are booing BUSH

I don't know what races some of you guys are watching but I don't see Kyle bumping and shoving anyone out of the way on a regular basis like you seem to imply. It happens in every race with someone. Kyle is agressive like a few others and is not satisfied finishing 2nd.

Nascar is conspiring to weed out the veteran drivers and bring in the young guns that started a few years back. You see Dale Earnhardt Sr had the largest fan base. NASCAR didn't like the total control of the fan base. Now his son Dale Jr has total control of the fan base. NASCAR still can't stand it.

What they want is to have someone like Jimmy Johnson and Kyle Busch come in and show favoritism and make them look like they are "the best drivers ever". They want anyone to look better than an Earnhardt. That's the reason they always compare drivers to "The Earnhardts".

It started a few years back. NASCAR has been making unfair calls against Dale Jr penalizing him for things not even in the rule books but they let the same things slide with other drivers.

See NASCAR wants to brainwash those that don't know any better. That's why you have these few fans that think he is the best. They will never admit that NASCAR is showing favoritism to Toyota's teams this year. Heck, Michael Waltrip is now allowed to steal parts and NASCAR says "they will not get involved". Had Jr's team been involved in it then immediate suspensions.

There are a lot that is better than Kyle Busch. Kyle is just under NASCAR's wing as of now. It's all part of the "SHOW".

Uhh, Fontana doesn't have the labor day race anymore. We have the Columbus day race now. I think Atlanta has labor day weekend now.

I'm with you Barr, Kyle's not out of control and is the only reason I watch the races.

ITA 100%! I think they also need a road course and Bristol in the chase.

Just what unfair calls has Nascar made against Jr.? Oh, you mean the speeding penalty he was assessed and then rescinded. Other drivers should be so lucky. They get penalized for speeding on pit road and never has another driver had his penalty rescinded. What else are you going to ask for? That Nascar just let Jr. win a race?
I agree with Kyle Busch. A lot of Jr. fans (and, I don't mean all of them) are crazy. I think you fit the bill.
By the way, what are the penalties Jr. has been assessed with that are not even in the rules book? Give us that info.

Why all the comments about Kyle's driving style? This article was about the cars that JGR is putting on the race track. This year the JGR cars are not keeping up with the Hendricks cars and that should be a concern for all of JGR teams.

Good question. But I guess some people given the chance would rather bash Busch than talk about what the article really is about.

I was thinking, Maybe it's because they don't have Tony's feedback anymore???? Maybe they're just feeling the pain of losing their best driver.

Were you NASCAR fan in February? Then maybe you remember who started the season off by wrecking many of the top drivers by a dumb move. Clean ujp your own house before you start on someone elses!

I certainly agree with you. Kyle has given us a renewed interest in racing. He has the desire and ability to back it up!! I think he will learn to put a better spin on his disappointment when he doesn't win but I hope he never gets over it because that is what makes a winner.

I am not sure that it is because of Tony's departure. Hendricks can really build some great motors. Tony is doing great with his new team but Kyle is really not that far behind. Kyle has really had some bad luck this year and has still somehow won 3 races.
