Default Kyle Busch

Since it has taken FOREVER, for a Shrub thread to be made i decided to go ahead and post one.

From 1999 through 2001, Busch earned more than 65 wins in legends cars as he racked up two track championships at Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s “Bullring” before moving to late models. Winning seemed to come naturally as the youngster captured 10 victories in late model competition at the Bullring in 2001.[6]

In 2002 Kyle Busch graduated a year early with honors from Durango High School in Las Vegas, Nevada.

2004 Busch Series Rookie of the Year
2005 Nextel Cup Rookie of the Year


Career Win List:
1.) 2005 Sony HD 500 @ California
2.) 2005 Checker Auto Parts 500 @ Phoenix
3.) 2006 Lenox Industrial Tools 300 @ New Hampshire
4.) 2007 Food City 500 @ Bristol (First Ever COT Race)
5.) 2008 Kobalt Tools 500 @ Atlanta (First Ever Toyota Winner)
6.) 2008 Aaron’s 499 @ Talladega
7.) 2008 Dodge Challenger 500 @ Darlington
8.) 2008 Best Buy 400 @ Dover
9.) 2008 Toyota/Save Mart 350 @ Infineon
10.) 2008 Coke Zero 400 @ Daytona

I HATE KYLE BUSCH nuk nuk
well i'll say this. He should stop being a media player and focus on his driving, cuz he may miss the Chase this year. And "IF" he does, it's because of all of his "taking shots at Jr."
He isn't, never ever ever ever will BE Dale Earnhardt. I finally realize why Rick Hendrick let him go.
I'll end with this. one of these days a driver isn't going to take his crap on the track and will put him in the wall, most likey at one of the high speed track. And they will NOT say "i'm sorry." That person whoever it may be will say "the kid deserved it." He has talent but can't get his head out of his ass to use properly.

Kyle Busch has talent no doubt. He drives real hard and is an exciting race car driver. I just wish he would get rid of the cry baby attitude. He whines that it is the cars fault if he finishes second in Busch. His own teammate is kicking his but in the same equipment. It frustrates him so much. He doesn't seem like a team player always complaining about "It was a good points day" It will keep him from being truly great if he doesn't learn the word TEAM!

In the cup series he gets so irate when the car doesn't handle that mentally he is out of it. He is struggling to make the chase and does he care? Doesn't look like it trying to do a 10,000 RPM burnout leaving the pits. He tried to finish off the motor. If he doesn't have a chance at a win then he pouts and loses focus. This is a team sport and every point counts. He needs to grow up. Once he does that he should be fine. I do see why Hendrick got rid of him though.

Well then, let's start by saying I don't hate the guy, but liking him is something completely different. He's at the right place at JGR, at least as far as I'm concerned, since I don't like the team nor the other drivers. Got to admit he's a talented driver though, and I think his bow after a victory is classy, not cocky.
He'll win a championship, eventually.

Having watched Kyle Busch since his days in Legends at the LVMS Bullring, I can honestly say that I think he is the best raw talent I have seen since Dan Gurney. I really would like to see him take that F1 shot. Of course, I'ld like to see almost any of NASCAR's finest take on the big kids.

Now if I could just get over the Toyota thing
