Enough is enough…….
Everyone is jumping on the Kyle Busch bandwagon now a days and I want to look at this just a little bit……
why is everyone jumping on his bandwagon? They say he can drive….. ok he can drive, is he the next 7 time champion?? no way….. is he the new face of NASCAR?? to some not to me….
Here is how I see all this….. A few years ago NASCAR decided to to to this “car of tomorrow” and forever change racing, brand new car, something that these drivers hadn’t had in years. Like in 2 generations of drivers.
The old car had been thru every race track, they knew all the setups, and, what it took to get them fast. With the “aero effects” on the old car for the last 10 years if you wanted to drive in Cup, you had to like a tight race car. Drivers who could handle a tight race car were in the money almost every week. Guys who liked loose race cars were at the rear of the field, simply because the old cars were set up to drive tight. Sooooo when we come to the “COT” we have a new car and no one knows what these cars like. It is a “common law” known in “dirt racing” that says “loose is fast”…….. and this applied to NASCAR’s old car only in certain places, certainly, not the norm. Well, along comes a car that don’t like tight setups. And the crew that has figured this out is the one’s with drivers who like to drive a loose car. Busch likes a loose car and it has shown by what people are raving about how good he is……. it’s not that he is just that good, it just looks better… its different…and some think it’s “new”. It is as “old as the hills”! Look back on some of those old ESPN Classic channel’s old races, them boys were loose from the drop of the green and just got looser as the race wore on. Fans of today would swear that Kyle Busch was driving!!!! But that is how it was back in the day… Real races, real race cars, and real racin!!!!
I do have to admit that Kyle Busch is bringing some of that back, but I still don’t like him.
