I've been an Edwards fan for the past couple of years. Bravo to him for giving Busch a taste of his own medicine! It's funny, Busch can dish it out, but he sure can't take it~ whiney little pansy. He needs to pull up his big girl panties and deal with it. Edwards races fair, but he isn't a pushover~ he gives back what's given to him.

I support Carl Edwards. I recall Kyle bumping Edwards. nearly running Jeff Gordon into the wall, and several other wild driving episodes when he first arrived on the Cup Scene.

You nailed it...

The "History" of NASCAR is full of events just like this, if not worse. Busch needs to shut up and learn to deal with it like a big-boy...

Sure did turn Saturday night in to a great race...

Shot in the arm for this declining sport. Look at the numbers (Sponsorship) and this sort of thing gets the interest back. Hopefully the high ups in NASCAR have sense enough to let this play out. Now if Stewart could jump in and muddle this thing it could really be front page news.

Yep that would be interesting maybe if Tony gets his own team up and running next year he can catch them two to do battle Remember you cant hit what you cant catch. I watched the Nationwide race fri night and when they left two of Kyles lug nuts loose he had to come back in man he drove the rest of the race wide open reminded me of Dale Sr in days gone by. I have not been enthused since Sr got killed but this is starting to peak my interest again I wonder what Coach Gibbs would say if Tony and Kyle wrecked each other sorta like Darrell Waltrip and Neil Bonnett both driving for JR Johnson in the 80s done at Martinsville???

Kyle is no way like SR you can not even put those 2 in the same sentence! Kyle will never be able to hold a candle to SR!! Kyle will never be a true champion and he will never ever be as good as SR SR is in a league of his own!Hell Tony is even better than Kyle!!

Way to go Carl!! About time someone else besides one of the Bush brothers won! I sat in the stands Wednesday night and had the displeasure of watching one of the Bush boys win the truck race. Congrats Carl on your win! "It's Bristol Baby"!!!

I remember one of the last races Dale SR. won.He bumped,and ran on Terry La Bonte at Bristol on the last lap.He was embarrassed when he got to victory lane,cause the crowd booed him,and T LaBonte was a very good buddy of SRs....but as Sr. always said.Thats why they call it racing.

You haven't noticed the entire country is in a decline?
