Legends are made over time, not a year, not two or three years. There have been many up and coming thought of legends to be, only to be disproved by fall off in performance, the loss of ability to charge 10 tenths by being in the big one and getting hurt and by any other number of things. I have seen Ernie Irvin come in with much hype and early success, only to be stopped by a bad wreck. Tim Richmond might have changed the stats put up by Dale Earnhardt if he had never have taken that trip to California with Hal Needham and contracted HIV, he had the obvious talent and drive to win. Davy Allison had his career cut short by being lazy and landing his copter too close to a chain link fence, rather than using the hela pad landing area and walking to the garage.
Kyle Bush has the talent, the drive and that all important edge of being a little rough around the edges and not minding making a few waves. Will he maintain a first class ride, will he get hurt, will he get an "Ultra Hot" girlfriend and forget that rim riding also means to drive the outside portion of the track?
I am pulling for Kyle, however, it will be about 2015 before anybody can say with any proof if Kyle has or has not become that legend that he seems to have the ability to become.

I don't think it will be 2015, maybe sooner than that.

He is a Legend In The Making. Brings lots of fun to racing once again. The fact that so many people say they don't like him is because they realize he is the biggest threat to their driver!!

He is a strategist, a great driver and wants to win. Period. You can label him anything you want.He has already excelled, esp if you compare him to 21st century drivers.Let him be the STAR he is.

Kyle needs to punish NASCAR truck series. After the way he was treated in the truck race @ Martinville. If Kyle stop driving in the truck race that would be the demise of that series. Nascar I think you have drove the nail in the coffin of the truck series. Because I think Kayle will stop driving in the truck series.

Are you kidding me. Kyle got just what he earned. A violation for crossing the line and then not pitting. Thats why the line is there. Rules are rules my friend. And the only thing kyle will be remembered for is his little rampages when things didn't go his way. Lets run off the track like a little 4yr old who didn't get what he wanted at the store.
