NASCAR’s driver of the season!
KYLE BUSCH. All I have to say is holy shitzu… this kid is good. I have a feeling that while I was playing with G.I. Joe’s at the age of 3, Kyle Busch was driving the lawn mower learning how to put the pedal to the metal. This kid was dominating yesterday’s race at the Atlanta Motor Speedway basically the whole time. If I had to put my money on someone to win the season I would have to say Kyle Busch. I know I know… kinda obvious since he’s ahead in the points, but I don’t see anyone else putting on a show like this kid.
Other shoutouts I have to give after watching the race is Dale Earnhardt Jr, Tony Stewart and Carl Edwards. All three ran an incredible race leading quite a few laps. It was unfortunate Carl Edwards blew an engine after leading for so long but I guess that’s racing. Dale Earnhardt was in the hunt the whole time and was always a threat. I’d love to see him win a race and get the taste of victory back in his blood. Tony Stewart was in the top 10 most of the race but obviously crept up to the front towards the end.
It was soooo cold this past weekend up there, I was worried that they were going to have to post pone the race again. I almost wanted to put my bathing suit on and see if the track was a slip in slide because after watching Sunday’s race and seeing those guys slide through the turns I figured it had to be fun. I talked to Tony Stewart in his hauler after the race on Sunday and he was not too happy about the tires Goodyear brought to this race. He said it was the worst tires he’s ever used and that Goodyear better step up their “A” game if they want to get off his “Shit List.”
Overall I have to admit I really enjoyed watching this race. It was definitely a driver’s course with the rough conditions of the track and the poor tires Goodyear brought. Three of my favorite drivers, Kyle Busch, Tony Stewart, and Dale Earnhardt Jr finished in the top three and I’m already excited for next weekend. It feels like these weeks are flying by… we’re almost a month into the season.
I’m glad to be back… now let’s get cooking on those comments. I want to hear your opinions.
