Considering the fact that Kyle Busch made the record books last season when he won the race in all three series in the same weekend. I guess NASCAR is afraid that, given the chance, he could sweep the championships in all three series. Wow! Wouldn't that be a grand record breaking feat?

But, since that would cast such a dark shadow over NASCAR's golden boy who we all must fantasize as being a legendary driver because his performance doesn't support the image NASCAR wants us to remain focused on, the opportunity to excel across all three NASCAR series is taken from those with talent.

I enjoy all the races, but it seems to me that the Camping World races are a lot more exciting than the Sprint Cup and Nationwide races. I know all these drivers want that Sprint Cup championship, but I would rather see Kyle race the truck anyday.

The fans spoke and Nascar listened finally.

I love it, I think they should run for one championship. give the newer, younger drivers a chance.
