I saw a different Kyle Busch this week at Bristol, and it's for the better. The sheer talent of the 24-year-old driver was still in full force with victories in the truck series race and Saturday night's Sharpie 500.

I've been trying to warn you guys. The other drivers are no competition for Kyle. He beats himself with his passion. Once he matures a little more and learns to harness that energy, the sky is the limit for his success in NASCAR. You think he dominates too much now? You ain't seen nothin' yet!

Pfffft!

He's lucky he had Mark racing him and not Carl or Denny or Smoke...his azz would've been in the fence, most likely.

I fully agree. The whole world has gone gaga because he behaved like an adult for one weekend. Any other driver on the circuit would have took him to the limit and then some. Mark is a good guy but frankly I'm sick to death of hearing how much he loves this and that, how wonderful everything is and lucky he is. I'd just love to hear him tell it like it is one time. If had made the pass on Shrub, Shrub would have put him in the fence in the next corner. That's really how much Shrub respects him, or anyone else.

The problem is you guys act like he wasn't sincere or anything.

While I wouldn't put it past Denny to do that, I'm not so sure Carl would have and I don't think Tony would have. Like Mark said, he gave him a whole lane. There comes a point when you're racing fair or you're playing dirty and frankly no one likes drivers who purposely take out the leader in order to win a race.

Kyle needs to show the maturity when he doesn't have the best day, not when he wins the race. Don't get me wrong. I thought he showed a good sign at Bristol, but I want to see the maturity when he's not flying high in victory lane. Not so much for the fans sake, but for Kyle's sake. A bad performance really gets to Kyle because of his passion to win. Unfortunately, that same emotion really affects Kyle negatively when he has a bad day. I'm fine with him getting angry and being being what some people would call, disrespectful. If that's who he is, than that's fine with me. I don't have to be a fan of his if that mentality doesn't appeal to me. Part of what makes any competitive even fun is the differing personalities. We pick to root for those who appeal to what we like and root against those who don't. People have different things appeal to them, hence the reason we have fans for very differing drivers. Anyway, all that aside. Kyle lets the bad performances affect how he races the next week it seems. That's where the maturity needs to come with Kyle. Once he learns to put a negative behind him and not affect his future performance so much, than we'll see what he's really capable of. It's not an easy thing to do either. A bad performance affects everyone to some degree, just as a good one does. Kyle, just needs to learn to shrug it off a little more and not let it hinder him to the degree that it does. The most emotional personalities usually have the hardest time learning that lesson.

I fully agree. So what, he acted like an adult for one weekend. Big whoop. One weekend before, he was causing all sorts of problems with Vickers. And we are to beleive he had a complete personality overhaul in less then a week??? and seriously, Mark you really think he would have raced you clean??? You are getting senile.....

Another thing to consider, is that Bristol is not the same track that he used to be. Drivers moved each other out of the way in the past, because you either moved the leader, or you had almost zero chance to win. Now that you can pass on the top or the bottom, that changes things up a bit. Kyle chose his line (the top) and Mark was left an opportunity to get by him on the bottom. It was racing, pure and simple. In the past you moved a guy up the track by bumping him, because there was only one line, the bottom. In those days you knew if you were up front, you were going to get bumped out of the way. Drivers were much more accepting of that back than. The guy in the lead didn't like it, as you would expect, but he would have done the same if he was riding second. I don't have a problem with moving a guy if you think you can do it safely. There's many little tricks drivers use to try and get around that leader and they all use them at times. I think Mark simply thought the risk was to high of them both wrecking. That shows the maturity of a guy like Mark. You do what you can to win, but you don't wreck the leader to do it and you sure as hell don't wreck yourself and the leader. Kyle opening up the bottom showed that he understood that. He gave Mark an opportunity, without Mark having to move him over to get it.

The point is he raced Mark clean and earned Marks respect. That's what matters is the drivers on the track not some disgruntled fans.
