Why not band Jimmy Johnson from racing period. He has no competion and gets all the right breaks from nascar. He makes racing look pretty boring!!!
Funny, the last few races were on the edge of fans' feet races and that was due to the chase AND because people are finally catching up to the 48 team in not beating themself. Denny and Harvick had a great chance to win but bad breaks, accompanied with the last race mishaps for each of them ruined it.

Looked like everything was as exciting as we could have wanted but I still see people bitching and complaining. Now we have morons thinking Kyle could sweep all three without ever having champ'd in CUP, as if he's likely to do that anytime soon. Well maybe that COULD happen, but give us a break with that BS already. The cup drivers can't even attend all the races in all three series. DUH!!

NASCAR will destroy the Nationwide series alone with the truck series with this dumb arse ruling. I will not watch or attend a race when your better driver cannot run for a championship. This is stupid!

Logano has to live with the fact that he sat behind him and let him win. I give Kyle credit for pitting at the end rather than riding the brake as per nascar instruction.

Pull your head out of your ass, you're not that special. Same page or not, and even if we are in total agreeance, your 'I'm the mighty TP' shit doesn't fly well in this zone. Check that shit at the door, bitch.

There is a old saying, before you can know where you are going, you must know where you have already been. But in your case, you have been nowhere and know nothing. You are an excellent example of what is wrong with with racing today, a bunch of big mouth stupid punks who know nothing and don't want to learn.

<quoted text> I see it kinda like a high school football team. You have your freshmen and sophmores playing JV and the juniors and seniors play varsity. You build your teams future on your JV talent, as one class moves out, another is ready to advance on to varsity. Its a simple thing. Thats what the lower two divisions are for, driver development. And this move will allow more new talent in on a regular basis. Just exactly what would Kyle Busch sweeping all three series do for the sport? And how could seeing someone dominate that much in one season be any fun to watch? Its hard enough watching the 48 team do what they do? I like for it to be anybodys race to win, not just Kyle or Jimmy. Multiple winners in a season would be much more fun....dont you think?
If records are made to be broken, then I think a lot of people would find it exciting to see one driver trying to burn all the record books by sweeping all three championships in the same season. It may not be mathematically possible, but the way Kyle was driving last season, he sure ignited the dream of that possibility and I don't think I'm the only one who would like to see a driver have the opportunity to not only chase that dream but to make it happen if their talent can take them that far.

If the racing is what you watch NASCAR for, then what difference does it make if one driver is dominating? It just means that driver is setting the standard to encourage all the others to compete that much harder to beat them to the finish line. In my opinion, that makes for better racing. A different winner every week shows me that the racing is boring because no driver is excelling so there is no excellence to set the track on fire. What a yawn.

Well, I dont see a lot of people posting this so who are you referring to as a lot of people, all I see is your lone post. And why Kyle? Just say it, your a Kyle fan, its cool, we all have our faves. Why not JJ keeping up his domination of being champ? Why not Dale Jr getting things turned around and dominating? Would you feel the same then? And a different winner every week being boring is absurd. a winner every week would mean that racing is even across the board and anyone could win. Not just JJ or Kyle. If one driver is dominating then the race wouldnt be for the win, it would be for second or third, that just defeats the purpose altogether. And as far as standards being set, well the 48 team has set them. They stand proudly at each race and chant to the other teams..........beat us if you can!!!! Nobody has in five years, so, thats enough domination. Dont get me wrong, I think Kyle is a talented driver, and this new deal that NASCAR has come up with just might put him in his best position yet to win the Cup championship. He has no choice but to focus on that one title now. Thats what he should have been doing all along. So sorry, I dont agree with you but I respect what you had to say, thats why its an open forum. And for the record, Im not a Jr fan, I used him as an illustration, if you want domination, then what IF Jr dominated, I dont think you would feel the same.

No, I'm not a Kyle fan, and even if I was why should it matter? The only reason I've mentioned Kyle in this discussion is because Kyle is the driver that was winning races is all three NASCAR series last season. I'm not pushing for Kyle, specifically, to make that happen, just saying that it would be exciting to watch a driver chase and break such a record. I'm sure I'm not the only NASCAR fan who feels that way, just because it's not being posted here doesn't mean others don't feel that way. Maybe they just don't wish to be attacked by someone like you who runs them down for having a different opinion and seems to be trolling the forum for the sole purpose of picking an argument with everyone they don't agree with.

What is your problem with Dale Jr? I never said anything about Jr in this discussion and frankly, if Jr could turn things around and be strong enough to be a threat to sweep the championship in all three NASCAR series, I wouldn't have a problem with that. As I said, I think it would be exciting to watch, I didn't designate a driver to do it. Kyle was only mentioned because he was the one whose performance last season ignited that dream.

We'll have to agree to disagree. Maybe you should stop trying to pick fights with people just because their opinion doesn't mesh with yours. Sorry to burst your bubble, but your opinion is no more important than the opinion of the others who post on here.

You're wrong. I'm not Barnabus. And I don't know Wang so I don't know how he could give me away, as you say.

It hardly shows that you respect a differing opinion when you add such a comment after a whole post where you're doing nothing but running the other guy's opinion down. What makes you believe that you or your opinion is so important?

I never said or acted like my opinion was important, I was just sharing my thoughts on the topic, for some crazy reason I thought that's what a forum was all about. It is you who starting running down what I said, acting like you and what you have to say trumps everybody else on here. You come on like someone who's just itching to start a battle with anybody you can antagonize. I've noticed you do that a lot to several of the posters on this forum, you seem to think you're superior to the rest of us. Forgive me, I fail to see what makes you so god-awful important, but maybe it's just me?

I commented on the topic, I was not out to pick a fight with you or anyone else, but I don't appreciate you coming on acting like you are some authority and you can speak for every other NASCAR fan and nobody's opinion matters but yours. Why don't you back off and let the fans speak for themselves and have their own opinions without your nasty backlash?
