Sadler is absolutely horrible. He is crazy if he thinks he will be back in cup someday.

Congratulations Kyle! You pulled out another awesome win. And thanks to you and Samantha for donating your winnings to help people with breast cancer and no insurance.

No other sports league acknowledges the accomplishments of their premier athletes in lower leagues. The don't because it's unseemly and frankly pathetic.

In baseball, imagine if Miguel Cabrera hit a game winner in a minor league game and stood on home plate taking bow after bow. He'd get booed out of the park.

Imagine if Peyton Manning played Arena Football in his spare time and scored 100 touchdowns. The league, fans, and Peyton would never stoop to that selfish level.

Imagine if Phil Michelson played junior league golf, just to pad his wins. How do you think he'd feel hoisting that trophy while up-and-comers watched shaking their heads. Pathetic!

What Busch is doing is pathetic and we as fans shouldn't allow it. And shame on NASCAR for allowing it just to fill more Nationwide seats.

And Busch's support of breast cancer? I don't buy it. It's simply an attempt by his PR handlers to improve his image. Surely we're smart enough to see that Busch is simply using that very important cause to advance his own reputation.(What? Next week, he'll be supporting orphans and puppies?) I hope most NASCAR fans are smart enough to see through this charade.

Im a Busch fan, but I will say that this is the greatest post ever. Something to truly think about.

I'm not a fan of Kyle's, but I could possibly be in the future. I think he has incredible raw racing talent. I also think he races NW and trucks because he loves to race. Good for him.

If he raced NW and truck series, won and then refused the trophy and prize money, then I think I could support that. If he said, "I just want to race. Give the trophy and money to somebody else," then that would go a long way toward building fan support.

But who would want to accept his trophy for second place...
