The Kyle Busch Fan Club

Yeah, there actually is one. Actually, there's more than one, if you do a quick Google search. And it's understandable.

Drivers don't reach the levels that Kyle Busch has in racing by having no talent. Kyle has talent, and there are always fans that appreciate raw talent. I don't happen to be one of them, but there are some.

Kyle Busch hit the wall a ton twice last night, but managed not to hurt his car much. He still had more horsepower and better handling than the other cars out there. For that, I say congratulations. Kyle, you found something that nobody else in Cup racing has been able to find, and that's the magic car. You wrecked it twice, you burned up the brakes, but you won the race by a hefty margin, and whatever you and your team found, you deserve all the accolades that accompany such a dominating win.

Can you really win a race with pure, raw talent? Of course you can. What I saw last night was a guy that was wrecking loose all night, but he managed it. Does Toyota enjoy an advantage in Nascar? Nascar says they don't, and so far, mostly it's been Joe Gibbs Racing cars that seem to dominate not just the Cup series, but the Nationwide and Craftsman Trucks series as well. Michael Waltrip Racing runs Toyotas, and though they've been running better, they haven't been a threat to win a race. Bill Davis runs Toyotas as well, but Dave Blaney had a fast car, but never threatened to win last night. Tony Stewart drives for Joe Gibbs in the 20 Home Depot Toyota, but he is willing to give all that up just to go back to Chevrolet and his own team. Huh. I wonder why?

Tony has run well at times, and on Friday night, he won the Nationwide race at Darlington. In Cup, Tony has not enjoyed a lot of success. His new teammate Kyle Busch has won 3 times, and Denny Hamlin should have won Richmond, before a tire, and a bad decision took him out of the race. Is Tony experiencing the Dale Earnhardt Jr. syndrome at JGR right now? Maybe they know he's leaving, so he's driving the test car, much as Dale Jr. was at DEI last year.

Getting back to Kyle Busch. I once knew a man who hated Dale Earnhardt so much, that he became a Jeff Gordon fan back in 1995. He didn't like Jeff, called him a member of a certain sexual persuasion of which he was not a fan, but he didn't care too much as long as Jeff finished ahead of Dale on the track. Jeff is now happily married with a beautiful daughter, and the man I knew is still a Jeff Gordon fan, but he still claims that Ingrid and even baby Ella are Jeff's "beard." I think this is nonsense, but if you read carefully, I don't claim that this man is a friend, he's just someone I know. He now claims that he's rapidly becoming a Kyle Busch fan, because "everyone hates him, and I like that in a driver."

I guess that's reason enough.

I'm willing to rent out my old tree house from when I was a kid for the Kyle Busch fan club get together. I really am.

  1. How many Kyle Busch fans are a fan because of the M&Ms? The tiny tots who love M&Ms follow the car, not the driver. And if they do look up to him it's because they don't know any better. I have never been a fan of either of the Busch brothers. And to become a fan of someone simply because they are hated is the silliest thing I have ever heard. Oh, and tell that so-called Jeff Gordon fan to get a life. Beard my foot.

  2. Well, I'm guessing there are fans out there that like Kyle for a lot of reason's, and M&M's is possibly one of those reasons. I don't have a problem with anyone being a Kyle fan, if they truly appreciate his talent and his personality. I've yet to find one single person who can tell me that they do, though. I know there are some, and I hope they come here and tell me why.

    As for my friend the Gordon fan? He's an idiot. But that's not a crime. He reads this blog regularly, but he knows I think he's an idiot, so no harm, no foul! ;-)

  3. I have recently discovered the joy of nascar. My driver is Kyle Busch. My first race was this past weekend at the Brickyard. I was disappointed to say the least. I am not quite sure what the deal was with the tires, but that stupid 10 lap rule cheated alot of drivers, especially Kyle I just know he would have won. He is a very good driver and he proves it every race. I cant wait till the next race so he can take the checkered home.

  5. Ordinarily, I do not leave comments from people with garbage mouths on my blog, but the preceding post is a perfect example of the mentality it must take to be a Kyle Busch fan. Notice they didn't give a name as well. I apologize for this idiot's lack of brains.

  7. Kyle ROCKS and you all have ENVY!!! As Kyle matures you will look as dumb as all the rest of the haters. People forget how D.W. was hated at one time as well as Earnhart SR. Now their loved. That's just to name only a couple. Jimmie Johnson is the best today and will be until unseated and he is not the most popular driver. Why?

  8. Envy? Whiner envy? LOL.. Kyle is a little crying baby who can't stand to lose. As he matures? I hope that will be before he's 40 or so. When he loses, Kyle runs away like a little kid on a playground. Kyle Busch will be long remembered for his ability to be a tiny wimp longer than his racing accomplishments will be remembered. I remember DW. He was a little crying wimp when he started out too. They used to call him "Jaws"

  9. Thanks Jim for answering Brian's recent comment. I was so angry when it hit my inbox that I couldn't see straight and I wanted to spit.
    And then I forgot about the little twit (KB), until your answer hit my inbox.
    Vile Kyle used to be a skinny little boy. He has since packed on a few pounds leaving me to wonder why. Who is he afraid of that he needs that extra weight?
    BTW, he has always reminded me of the bully in a schoolyard.
