Wow, from reading that article Busch sounds like a completely self-centered ****! What a jerk!!! JMO Does he think that because someone isn't in the chase they should just cruise around the track and not actually race? Puhlease..... At least Jr. was Man enough to apologize. Busch acts like he's God and that he NEVER does any wrong. What a Jerk!!! Just My Opinion!
He'll be over it in a day if he isn't already! The chase is a very important part of all this each wk they gather points ! and...well when you are knocked out that way it will piss ya off! LOL... There is to much respect for that to stick!!...I HOPE!! I feel Kyle is a better person than he is ever given credit for ,jmo, smiles... But I can understand also, that all aren't as calm, smart about their mouth as OUR BOY IS!!! LOL..But that is the dang truth , they can say what they want! Junior don't bad mouth,other drivers or race dirty! It was a race track wreck! LOL ...sh$% happens! LOL, MHO!...LOL

Hey has that Jr Nation lynch mob found it's way home yet?
Now what's to be said by all those "Fans" that were concerned about Villeneuve making a rookie mistake at Dega that would interfere with chasers? Looks like he just got a free pass to ruin someones day!
I think it was intentional, Jr' nervous about filling his shoes, especially if he leaves as champ!
I'm not even a big Jr. fan but common sense tells you it wasn't intentional, especially since he said he made a big mistake ! If you think people aren't talking about JVs Dega race next week you're wrong they are it's just another post.

Never heard near the whining that he had a right to.
Jr had no choice but to apologize, couldn't deny that he screwed up! It was more blatant than Hamlin on Petty!
Jr. apologized because he is a decent and honorable person. When the incident was shown fron the front it actually looked like Kyle came up on Jr. but Jr. took the blame. You're right, not much different than Denny and Kyle except Jr. was a man about it and didn't take a week to admit it was his fault. That's what really burns your silly ass isn't it?

A lot of people don't like Jr but when you thing about it Jr is always the 1st one to admit when he makes an error. They can't in all honesty say that isn't true. Not too many drivers will do that. They always want to blame it on someone else.

People don't wanna believe it, but Big Dale taught that boy well. Junior has more respect for other drivers and feels that he is priveleged to drive that car every weekend. When you are respected by the best in the business like Mark Martin, you gotta be doing something right. And this b/s about him apologizing because you have to really pisses me off. Big Dale would put you in the wall, take the win, and then stand on top of that race car with both fists in the air and never offer any apologies, and he was the best driver to ever grip a damn steering wheel. Any one wants to debate that, I'll be happy to take the time to do it.

This isn't my opinion, this is what I saw. Lil' Shrub gave the signal that he was staying to the bottom to let Junior by. Junior got the run and was going by on the high side. Lil' Shrub then drifted to the top and blocked the line. Junior wasn't riding a superbike where he could pass with only 5 feet of space.

You have to give JuneBug the credit for taking responsibility.

I think Denny Hamlin should see how Jr. handled the situation with class. I'm not a big Jr. fan but he has really impressed me lately with how he handles adversity. Maybe he could teach Mr. Arrogant Hamlin a thing or two.

ya know, I like dale jr, but Kyle had the right to be pissed off. Jr knows that the 5 is in the chase and ran over him. And Junior Nation kills me. Jr makes a stupid move and takes out a guy racing for a championship and ya'll will find some way to sugarcoat it, saying "well at least he was man enough to to admit he made a mistake". If the shoe was on the other foot, and KB took out Jr and Jr was in the chase, ya'll would not be singing the same tune. For the record, I think Kyle is a whiny little brat too, but int this case, I think he had a right to piss and moan for as long as he wanted.

And yall are even trying to say it was Kyle's fault! Newsflash....Jr ran STRAIGHT into the back of Mr. Busch and put him in the fence on the STRAIGHTAWAY! And he almost did the same thing to Biffle earlier in the race. Stop trying to dress the situation up and tell it like it is!

I respect your opinion, but that's not really fair if 31 Drivers have to tip toe around the track because the 12 chasers are on it. I think the 31 other Drivers should fight just as hard to get a win before the season is over. But your right, if the shoe would of been on the other foot, I would be mad as He!! today!

It is about time jr starts running like he should. He has run junk all year and is doing the best he can. Look at Kyle and you can understand why he thinks everyone is out to get him. How many DNF's has Kyle had this year, or last year? Sorry but it was funny.

Busch has been making crude remarks about Jr. since the Hendrick announced Jr. was joining their team and Busch was out. It was Hendrick's decision not Jr.'s to eliminate Busch. I am sure he is bitter about the situation but life goes on. I felt sorry for him when it first happen because I felt he got the short end of the deal. He has landed with a top team now but his attitude sucks. He reminds me of a child that has to stomp his foot and tattle on the other kids. Sure makes you want to wish bad luck on the guy or chuckle when things happen.

Dale Jr said in his interview that Busch had the right to be mad and he would be mad too.

You know after he saw Earnhardts interview Busch probably felt bad, you know alot of those guys give him hell so he probably starts to sound like them. I don't think the Busch boys are that bad but I bet he regrets what he said today. At least we hope he did.
