When Kyle speaks I turn the TV off,and if he's leading the race I watch something else.

Kyle is the best driver , better than any of them. just because JJ has won championship, he is not the best. He can not drive in traffic.
but Kyle can drive anything, anywhere. he can wheel those race cars. go Kyle.

Kyle is a good driver, but not the best. No championship and 26 wins. His best finish in the points is a 5th and that was 6 years ago. Kyle is still young and he can get up there with the best, but he is not there yet.

I didn't know JJ couldn't drive in traffic. Just a few weeks ago he drove from 43 to 6 at New Hampshire. You don't seem like the type of person that believes in any reality that doesn't suit your argument though.

Not a fan of either driver but both are talented.

He can't drive in traffic? How many times has he had a bad start to a race only to get it improved and start passing cars left and right? You're a bit clueless.

I agree that Kyle is a good driver, but great drivers know how to win championships. Kyle has none (yet). He's got a million dollar foot, but I got a good idea about that 5 head of his.

Hate to say it but Shrub did better back a couple or three years ago when he was a tempermental idiot than he does now. He just doesn't wheel the car with that reckless abandon that he use to. Gibbs needs to put him and Denny on the trade list. It might motivate them a little.

No way.. Both are hard-wired to win...
Denny's injury is effecting his performance and confidence...A good finish will change that...maybe a win at Richmond

Kyle petty kinda through Denny under the bus, but they were never in the same league of talent

If JJ could qualify better imagine how many races he would of won. As for can drive in traffic thats just stupid. When you qualify 16th or 18th how do think he either WINS or at least top 5.Maybe nascar pays the other drivers to pull over and let JJ go by. What a dumb thing to say. Yes Im talking to you helloo.Kyle is the best in nationwide. Unfortunately hes got to race with the grown ups and win and that just isnt happening.

I wasnt going to respond to Hiltonhead or greenflag but I just had to. Yes that was Kyle on Sunday but heres what I have to say. Would Kyle have won Sunday if he had not run the same track on Sat. and got 80 more laps practice than the rest of the WHOLE cup field ? OR would him and Brad been on equal footing on Sunday. Brad was on him like hair on a gorilla and COULD have beat by driving like Earnhardt Sr. did. Im not saying at ALL that Kyle is not good but that is not the topic of this debate. Just think if Kyle started Sundays race the way he did Sat. OR did he learn something racing with the minor league drivers on Sat. that CUP drivers didnt have the same chance to. So to you 2 remember the topic and keep it in mind when you want to make your point. Kyle has the foot but does he have it between the ears to be 1 of the best of all time ? After all that was the topic. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

At the last rules change, I think "winning" is still the deciding factor at all Nascar levels of racing. I'm sure the Nationwide racing helps Kyle on his initial set-up at the cup race, but driving the 18 to victory lane takes talent and yes brain power. All teams use any and every advantage that they can, having raced on the same track one day earlier is only one advantage....at least it's not cheating.

Great! Very well spoken. People, we also have to remember that Kyle also drives a different car in each race. Sometimes three if he is in the truck race. I would think that this would take more "brains" than not. I only heard respect for his driving from the announcers and other drivers interviewed.

You are right its not cheating. But why not let the natiowide drivers race, and cup drivers race ? Just how many races have nationwide drivers won. Not many.But true its not cheating.

If cup drivers werent running nationwide races the drivers would race against the nationwide could race against people in their league. Not overdriving to try and beat the people in the cup series. Its like letting the major league teams playing against college teams for the world series.

Who would you compare Kyle with? There is no one that I know to compare Kyle with. I am seventy five years old,and been a fan of NASCAR since 1955, up until a couple a year ago. I stopped being a fan of NASCAR when they fine Kyle and barred him from running a race. I have very little respect for Helton or Robin pemberton.

In my opinion Kyle Busch for his age is the greatest Driver that ever drove for NASCAR. May be Tim Flock or Jeff Gordon were the closes. But they would be far behind.

For what Kyle has accomplish is his very short period of time. He should be inducted in the Hall of Fame. NOW!!!!!!!!!!
