Kyle Busch becoming a problem?: Some of the NASCAR drivers are getting worried about how Kyle Busch has been driving. Are young drivers too agressive?

Jeff Gordon has no room to talk either. He will wreck anyone in order to win. He has proved that numerous times. But Kyle and his brother Kurt are both dirty drivers as well.

Ask Michel Jourdain who got wrecked by Busch last weekend, making a pass that really wasn't nessecary. He was on older tires and would have had to pit in the next few laps anyhow. Busch was just impatient, and the result was someone didn't finish the race.

Jeff Gordon is an extremely careful but competitive driver. Tony is the worst at aggression, send him back to anger management

As the saying goes- I admire the courage but, question the judgement! He still has milk on his breath. The team has to school da' boy! Or NASCAR needs to sit Him in the corner to think for a race or 2. It still bugs me to see the 5 car in the hands of a less than stellar driver. Terry was a Class Act in the 5!

"Jeff Gordon has no room to talk either. He will wreck anyone in order to win. He has proved that numerous times. " Well, I wouldn't say that Jeffy is a dirty driver, just a cheatin' one. One just to look at his teamate and driver JJ to see that. That and when Ray Evernham was Jeffy's crew chief, he was good at not getting caught.

Kyle needs to go to the Robbie Gordon school of offensive driving

Let's see....If you get caught cheating, your a cheater. If you don't get caught cheating, your a cheater that was good at not getting caught? What a load of crap! Some "fans" think if their driver doesn't win often but someone else does then the someone else MUST be cheating. As for the post, someone asks big brother a question about little brother kyle and somehow it gets twisted into Gordon cheated when Ray was his crewcheif, get over it! Gordon dominated for years because he was one of the best drivers, had one of the best crewcheifs, and was with one of the best teams in NASCAR.

Hey, lighten up Francis, It's not our fault your'e a Gordon fan.

I just can't understand why week after week Tony Stewart comes out and talks about how aggressive someone else is driving. This guy is one of the biggest problems in Nascar, but he cant' stop bitching about everyone else.

It is early in the season, and he is the current champion.
posted by volfire at 05:53 PM on March 11
I seem to recall that most of us enjoy the rough racing, and that is what wins, and why Jeff Gordon and Tony Stewart are champions

agree with phrank, seems a shame to give a great car like the five to an undeserving rookie
posted by Chrissy at 06:37 PM on March 11
I agree 100% with everett that is exactly what i think. Why can't Tony just SHUT UP?

That fact that Kurt Busch, was the interviewee in the story makes it laughable in itself. For Kurt to try and give anyone advice on how to act is ridiculous. To me it seems like a total family affair of arrogance.

Kurt makes the same admission in the story, stockman. Are Nascar.Com stories always this bland? This one reads like a puff piece.

News flash......the 5 isn't driven by a rookie, it is his second season in cup. :o)

Agressive driving in this sport comes from it's roots, it's nothing new and it won't go away. Rubbin is racing as it's been said...when of course it's your driver of choice doing it and it's dirty driving when it's not your driver of choice.. Welcome to the world of NASCAR

Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, and Robbie Gordon all learned to drive on the dirt tracks where bumping and shoving was expected. However, the speeds are a little different. The dirt tracks might get 60mph and the NASCAR tracks get 180mph. Not a good time to bumping and shoving.

"Are Nascar.Com stories always this bland?" No, they're usually worse. Seriously.
posted by mr_crash_davis at 09:31 PM on March 11
Aye, the stories on nascar.com are usually pretty bad. Look where the stories come from though, and you see why they're rather generic. NASCAR only wants to show the fans bits and pieces of the drivers, nothing in-depth or riveting. The whole site is basically just an advertisement with some (usually) feel good reporting. Before you flame me...I am a huge NASCAR fan.

Kyle is young and has a very good car to drive. He has made some stupid decisions on the track but then everyone has at some point. He will calm down in time. You can't teach experience. The only way to learn is to be out there and learn from the mistakes you make. Jeff Gordon was terrible his first year. I think he wrecked a dozen cars.

DON'T MAKE FUN OF TONY! He is a great role model for us Fat Boys!

Kyle isn't anymore of problem than any other driver that hungury for a win. It's just the racing been so boreing lately that they have to talk about something to keep the pot stired-up.

right on wrigley! it's just racing.it's just Kurt I mean Kyle isn't good ole boy enough to fit yet bein from Vegas and all

Man, there are some PLAYER HATER'S on this thread. Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon are the two best drives in NASCAR right now. Just look at the wins/cups. And Tony can drive in any circuit and win. As for Kyle Busch, he will be the youngest Cup winner soon. And Robby Gordon, the first American to win a stage in the Dakkar, a storied off road and open wheel racer. Owns his own team and is in the top 20! Just kick back, relax and watch these folks drive.

by cup winner you mean champ? he has already won a race, to be champ , he has to grow up , you cant win the cup if your wreckin each week, and if he keeps pushing around everyone they are going to push back!they should sit him like they did harvick to cure him of the "EARNHARDT" complex.when Dale died , that style of drivin died too.

Earnhardt was just good at "rubbin". I think that some of the drivers today just don't have that finesse that Earnhardt naturally posessed. He was born to race. While many of today's drivers are groomed for NASCAR, they just don't have that natural talent that Earnhardt was born with. If they are born with it, then they aren't taught how to use and harness it. I think Dale Earnhardt learned by watchin' his old man race on all those short and dirt tracks when he was growin' up as well as his racin' as a young man. He learned what he could get away with and what he couldn't. Also many of these young drivers are coming up at an earlier age so that the learning curve is much more steep.

mrf, I know it was your first comment, and we'll likely never hear from you again, but you might want to cool it just a minute, and watch the course of action in here. I don't think any one in this thread has really made any attempt to say that Tony Stewart is a bad driver, or that Jeff Gordon is for that matter. Rather, I think people are saying that Tony Stewart is a loud mouthed, hypocritical, peice of shit who will never be able to earn our respect as a human being no matter how many cup races he wins. okay?

Or panty load?

Yes, by Cup I did mean Nextel Cup. You sound jealous to me. I understand that you have never won at anything in your life, so I doubt that Tony cares that you are jealous. Go to Jillians, see if you can win a video game or two, and check back in.

Jillian's is like Buster and Dave's. It is just a big sports bar with video games and a bunch of TV's. They are primarily here in the south.
