I was just reading one of the houseblogs I read everyday. This homeowner is talking about how he is painting his Victorian era house but didn't get as much painting done as he wanted to because he wanted to watch the race.

Well...it seems this guy is a Jr fan and he totally forgets about the house and goes off on a tangent about Kyle Busch.

Damn Kyle Busch pissed everyone off. Steven Wallace, Jr., and now a Victorian house restorer. Goes to show you how many people watch Nascar races and everyone has a favorite driver or two.

Nascar is loving every minute of this.

Time for a gratutious Goooo Smoke!!!

NASCAR is loving this. Every sports league needs a villain; like the Yankees in baseball. The more we get mad, the more NASCAR smiles, because we are going to watch next weekend to see if anything happens.

Someone will wreck him. Its not a matter of if but of when. I'll have a good laugh when that happens too.

Callahan, just because he is named Kyle doesn't mean you have to like him. There is enough greatness between all the Kyle's on MSTRC to love! lol.

WOW, the personnal attacks are more offending than what kyle did to Jr...
Kyle B sure did a poor job catching a car that was going out of control..
Too bad NASCAR don't use the spinner - spinnee rule.


Yeah isn't that a joke? The local tracks send you to the back for that crap and the big boys let it go seems backwards to me. But sometimes the spinner-spinnee rule isn't enforced correctly at the local track level but if they had multiple tv angles I'm sure they could get it right. The actions of KB have been out of control for a long time. Eventually somebody will put him in his place....how about roughing up Robby Gordon he'd dish it back.

Hey Kyle don't let them rattle your cage. I remember a certain driver doing all the stuff KB is doing
and nobody complained about it. I went to Bristol a couple years and sat there in aww. My driver was punted(getting his cage rattled)and crossed the finish line backwards with the win. The next time I went down there I got to see him get his cage rattled(PUNTED) with half a lap to go.
People just laughed and thought that was ok. You never seen the ICEMAN ever get heated over that.


BTW Theres different rules and standards for different CLOWNS!!!! stirthepot.gif



You don't remember the boos that echoed in victory lane when he got out of the car? And yes the "iceman" was a little ticked off about it as he should have been. Not eveything the black and silver car did was approved by all his fans. I didn't like it and I was a huge #3 fan. And besides those were both on the LAST lap for the win right? Does it matter what lap it is when Busch decides to punt someone or destroy his own car if it isn't just right. And it's not just the stuff he's doing it's the attitude that he has. He's not the first guy to have success in NASCAR or to use the old chrome horn.

Wow another Kyle Busch fan. I thought I was the only one. icon_smile.gif

I watched both races this weekend. First I dont see what Kyle did to Steven Wallace. Steven jacks him up 3/4 the way down the backstretch and anyone without great car control would have wrecked it. So I think Kyle saved a big wreck there. Then someone needed to get in Steven's face. When Tony got in Kyle's face last year it helped. So maybe it will with Steven too. If you haven't noticed he has wrecked alot of stuff for no reason in his career.

The Jr. thing didnt need to happen. Kyle drove in too deep which happens to everyone and sometime and when that happens there is nothing he could have done to stay off Jr. Remember though he is only 23 (this weekend) and was just racing against the guy who took his job. He was just trying a little to hard. It happens.

Nobody remembers when Jr. wrecked Kyle twice last year in the chase. But everyone will always remember when Kyle wrecked Jr. That is what I hate about Jr. nation. Jr can do no wrong but if anyone ever touches Jr. they are booed forever.

But with that said
Kyle Busch - 2
Dale Jr. - 0
In 2008 (but that is only because Kyle wrecks everyone i know)

Man I cant wait for MIS in June to here Jr. Nation Boo the hell outta Kyle while I am there with my #18 M&M's Hat on.

Go Kyle!!!!!!

Wow!!!

In reality I think there should be more names on the list. I'm pretty sure that Kyle has taken more people out in the last month than most of these guys do in a year. Here's what I don't get. I understand hard racing, have done it myself. But you watch Burton and Kennseth run side by side for how many laps, Kennseth and Jonson, Craven and Kurt Bush, the list goes on. Anytime someone gets next to Kyle and oooopps I didn't mean to get in to him. It 's just one of those racing deals I guess. At least Tony has the common fricken courtesy to say if it's my fault I'll take the heat. I'm not a member of Jr. nation. In fact I'm not a huge fan of any one driver. I'm a fan of good racing and at the end of that race I didn't see any. Kyle needs to use his head. If he would just back off a hair he would be really good. He's got no patience. I'm sure he'll win a lot of races and everyone will eventually cheer him on. But what I loved is all that attention on Kyle Bush. Kyle this, Kyle that, Kyle will, Kyle's gonna, and look who won the race. The guy no one was talking about. Patience!! Clint put himself in a position to win that race. Good for him.



Oh and what did Kyle do to Steven, well it was a few races ago where Kyle jacked Steven up in the air down the frontstretch. So I guess Kyle needs to start taking notes on who he's hit. That way when they hit him back he knows why. Man up Kyle and take the blame.

Jimmy Spencer will you please come out of retirement for just one race. I'm sure if you were out there he'd hit you too.

I'm with Fed-Up, about the 5th championship I'll start looking at him for real to take that crown. Hell he hasn't even hit Gordon status yet.

I lost the little respect I had for him on the last lap of the truck race at Martinsville when he took out Benson. And then in the post race interview shrugged it off like it was no big deal.

He has no respect for any other driver and his antics will get someone hurt eventually.

There is a difference between racing accidents and plain dirty driving. He has crossed that line multiple times.

Very well put BigRon87.

Actually, after reading through all these posts I was beginning to wonder to myself if anyone else watched the same 2 races over the weekend that I watched. It sure seems like they all saw things much differently than myself. **scratching head**

I was surprised that Shrub was as easy on Steven as he was after the ramming and jacking up that Steven had given to Kyle shortly before. I am sure Kyle wanted to wreck Steven bigtime.
I watched the replays over and over and I sure don't get why everyone wants to blame Kyle for that situation.

As for Kyle and Jr, that was simply good hard racing. They both had plenty of room and either one could have chosen to move up or down just a bit on the track to give a little more space or either could have eased on the throttle slightly but......they were racing for placement, racing hard.
Those cars do not like to be that close together side by side on the track, they tend to get loose and in turns it is worse. They were equally to blame and no one was to blame.

Good point that the fans never seem to remember the times that Jr has messed up and wrecked someone or caused a wreck over the years yet they never forget anyone that has messed up Jr.

For the record, I am a Dale Jr. fan, neutral on Kyle Busch and Steven Wallace, am a Jeff Gordon fan, and a HUGE Tony Stewart fan........Go Tony!!!!!

Then why did Kyle turn to the right before he got loose? He didn't get loose until AFTER he hit Dale and then he followed him up the track enough to make sure he'd wreck. A lot of times when you take someone out intentionally, the car get's loose as you try to get back down out of your own wreck.

Good point that the fans never seem to remember the times that Jr has messed up and wrecked someone or caused a wreck over the years yet they never forget anyone that has messed up Jr.

Don't need to remember or be bothered by any of that... The fans let it go immediately because #1 he doesn't do it intentionally, and #2 because he accepts responsibility for his actions and shows remorse. Kyle's only regret was not being able to take out Bowyer as well.

I do it because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

Yea,, I think at least JR. almost got an "I'm sorry" I'm not a Steven Wallace fan by any stretch, I think the only reason he is there is Daddy.. But I'm sure Benson wonders who is finally going to take him out,, Somebody needs to, or the coach needs to have a real talk with the boy, before somebody really get hirt by this goof,, I hope when he finally kills somebody he has something more to say than "I'm a racer,and that's racing"

IMHO, Kyle is the best thing to happen to NASCRAP since Smoke still had an attitude. Like it or not, the empty seats testify to the need for Kyle. When you don't have real competition, you need personalities to fill the seats.

The last restart i thought mild manered Mark Martin was going to pit him in the wall but he couldnt catch him.


Mark Martin started all this didnt he get brother Kurt a ride in the 97.

I heard a radio interviwew that had Rusty Wallace, as a guest towards the end of his career. He said he would take a fast driver and slow him down any day for his race team, than take a slow cautious drive and try to speed him up. Maybe Rusty should be Kyles coach what a team that would be.

Well if Rusty is taking a FAST (?) driver like Steven and slowing him down (?) (something that shouldn't take a lot of work for that team) They might as well put it on the trailer and save there $$$. And maybe we should update this post and call it idiot o the year not week,, any guess as to who next week's victim will be??

Kevin,

I'm still liking

"MaleSexualAnatomyWood of the Year" as opposed to idiot, that is too nice a term for young Kyle.

have a good day,

What about this angle Kurt Bush, Kyle Bushes older brother now drives the Miller Lite #2 , that use to be driven By Rusty Wallace. this is llike one big soap show. I think the people that are loving this is all the sponsors involved. This could all be a big conspiracy, contrived by Nascar and their sponsors. biggrin.gif

I guess not everyone thinks it was Busch's fault. Check out this story.

Had to laugh over the police escort needed for Busch to get out of the track because of the PO'ed Jr Nation fans.

Chris



By Scott Serrano PA SportsTicker Auto Racing Editor

The only mistakes Kyle Busch made Saturday night was raising the ire of Junior Nation’s vast legions - and then apologizing for it.

With three laps remaining in the Crown Royal 400 at Richmond International Raceway, Busch wobbled in the third turn while racing Dale Earnhardt Jr. for the lead, sending NASCAR’s most popular driver into the wall.

Busch went on to finish second while Earnhardt, seeking his first win in two years, was relegated to a heartbreaking 15th.

“It’s just a part of racing,” Busch said moments after climbing from his race car and being confronted by one of Earnhardt’s angry pit crew members. “I probably could have moved down a little lower getting into the corner and he probably could have moved up higher - it’s just a product of good, hard racing.

“I apologize to those guys - they had a great race car tonight and they probably could have finished, if not winning the race, probably second.”

Why did Busch apologize even if he did nothing wrong?

All he did was what anyone would do with three laps to go - race hard for the win, regardless of who he was battling. The two were fighting for the lead and Earnhardt, who now hasn’t been to Victory Lane in over two years, got the short end of the stick.

“I mean, everybody probably is racing around the race track scared to death of wrecking Dale Earnhardt Jr., so why wouldn’t I be any different?” Busch said. “You know that was just a product of good, hard racing.

“I apologize that’s that happened, and I hated that it did. Fortunately he didn’t get hurt and nothing like that happened, so he was able to continue. He’ll see another day of racing.”

Again, there is no need to apologize.

If anything, the incident will only add spice to NASCAR, which has been sorely lacking this sort of passion and drivers’ overall commitment to winning instead of merely points racing.

The facts don’t lie. More and more, we are seeing it become more prevalent that races aren’t being sold out or that it takes until the final hours before race time to sell out an event.

This type of story line, the burgeoning rivalry between two young drivers - especially one that was fueled by Busch’s ouster at Hendrick Motorsports in favor of Earnhardt, will only add spice to the sport.

“There’s nothing you can say. Absolutely nothing,” Busch said. “If I apologized up and down, even though it may or may not be my fault, it wouldn’t make a difference.

“Dale Jr. got wrecked and should have had a win tonight, quote-unquote. It’s unfortunate circumstances for him because he didn’t get a win, and it’s unfortunate for me because now I’ve got to put up with it.”

Yes, the backlash towards Busch will be severe, as evidenced by his needing a police escort to leave Richmond on Saturday night.

The millions of Junior fans see Saturday’s result as a golden opportunity lost for Earnhardt to snap a 71-race winless drought.

The bottom line was that it wasn’t Busch’s fault, thus no apology was necessary.

You folks are aware that KB said in his post-race interview that this incident probably "ruined his career"

Just food for thought..
