Kyle will drive a car 180 on ice,and will win alot of race's. He need's to grow up"big time". Don't forget what he said after winning the first COT race. I can't see Teresa or Max having
to apologize to their sponser's on what he say's. Best of luck where ever
you wind up.

I wish Kyle Busch would just go away, I will just quit drinking Budweiser and try Coors ... yeah that is what I'll do, can't stand his brother either so nix the Miller Lite. Why would any team want him after his comments on TV after the Daytona 500 last year when he said "I hate this place and can't wait to get out of here" I am sure Kelloggs will not lose any sleep over the fact I stopped buying any of their products after Busch drove for them. He is a backstabbing unattractive arrogant driver who needs to find somewhere else to work. Hey DEI isn't their other great talent out there who are fan and sponsor friendly?

I think Kyle would be a great fit for DEI. Just think of all the headaches Teresa & Max would get with that one (tee,hee).

I'm sure DEI would love to have Shrub, then they would finally have 2 good drivers and half the whining!! L'iL Busch would prove definitively what Truex has started to,... there was never a problem with the equipment, Jr's big ole pout lip just kept getting in the way of the steering wheel!
Kyle would smoke Jr on any track in any type of racecar.

Kyle is a young fellow, with a lot of talent. He lacks self control. He will never be a great driver until he learns how to respect others.What he needs is a father figure to take a paddle to his skinny butt!
For him to even think of driving for Budwiser at DEI,is the biggest mistake Teresa will make. Fans will not tolerate it.

Hes only 22. Give him 5-10 years. He will be on top of the series. Think about how you all were when you were just 22, and then maybe y'all wouldn't be so quick to judge. He has raw talent ans once its refined, watch out!!

Did anyone see NASCAR NOW on Monday (7/16)? The question was asked, "What would you do as a team owner right now with Shrub running his mouth and behaving badly?" (Not exact question but that is the jist of it.) One commentator said, "I'd buy out his contract and send him packing.", the other one said, "I'd have a very serious talk with him about muzzles." Not their exact answers but you get it.

Again I reiterate he in still young. Give him a few years to wise up. He will be one of the best! I am not a huge Busch fan, but the boy CAN DRIVE! Just wait till he's a MAN! Show me one driver who started as young as Kyle and was mature right off the get go? Look who he had to look up to! lol. Kyle WILL BE the NEXT BIG THING!!! Give it 5-10 years. He's got a lot of driving time ahead of him. He will sparkle!!!

tamara no disa greeing with you. but when he was talked to earlier in season by hendrick (after stuff and by jeff and jimmy) and he still doesnt work well or listen, hello, at some point you need to.
and he wonders why his teammates wont work with him when he made that comment.
becoz he wont take their advice and suggestions.
and becoz he opens his mouth with comments like that.
granted he is young and in a few more years he may learn to control the mouth and what he says.
no one is saying he dont have talent. he does.
but he also opens his mouth and spouts off at the most inapproriate times or says the most inapprooriate things.....
and he can be the winningest driver with tons of records, but if he dont find the appeal or go to speech classes and media stuff like most drivers...he wont be the winningnesst driver at all...they have to be rounded in all the areas..not just wins and such.

he does have lots of talent we all agree.
and after this season, lets hope he listens to new owner, teammates and works better at his growth in other areas and that will make him eventually more likeable..
along with the talent...

some things do come with age, but there are many young drivers kyles age in truck, busch and cup who seem to handle it...he needs to start so too..

as far as looking up to other drivers, hes had teammates jeff, jimmy and casey. they are all good drivers and well spoken most of times.
he doesnt even listen to his brother who has ben there and done that....
so not sure what it would take to get him there.

reed sorenson, david regan, many others who are in his age bracket and starting out keep their comments in check and often say they learn from teammates or other vetern drivers.

again...lets hope he does learn..it would be a waste for him not too- with all his driving talent he has...

Kyle Bush is an angel compared to Tony Stewart and he is still at Gibbs. If you win races they don't seem to care if you are an asshole or not. It's when you don't win that it is a problem. Then they will use it as an excuse to get rid of you. Most all these drivers were raised in wealthy families and alot of them have been spoiled and need alot of work on their people skills. Many of them do Know what the word "humble" means. I do not mean all of them beacause there are many that are super people bue alot of the young ones are cocky as hell.

10 years from now fans will be saying Kyle Who? Remember Casey Atwood? yeah Casey Who? Sponsors want marketable drivers. His big mouth and irresponsible comments is not going to attract sponsors with money. It ain't just about talent, there are a dozen or more drivers who have more talent that
have never made it to the "Cup" series because sponsors don't want controversy. Kurt has learned to mellow out and I think if he was driving a "bowtie" powered car instead of the "mopar" crap he is driving he would have a whole bunch of wins. When a team or sponsor want to know if they want a driver they go out and look at the souvenir trailers at the track and see who is selling and who isn't. Why do you think Kurt left Roush? He was going to lose his sponsorship.It is called sales.Look at Biffle the ugly. He had the Subway commercials and didn't do diddly. Who is selling Subway sandwiches now? Tony Stewart. Anyway Kyle the shrub looks like he is an alien or something.

It's gonna be funny, when ya all eat your words. I know how I was at 22, and I was by no means mature enough to handle all of the pressure he has to deal with. Good grief people, give him a little room to grow and stop suffocating him, maybe then we'll see him turn over a new leaf!!
