Kyle Busch Made a Bonehead Decision!
Kyle Busch made headlines this weekend for being the first to race all three NASCAR sanctioned races. He started in Pocono Friday afternoon where he qualfied top ten and then flew to the Sam’s Town 400 Craftsman Truck race in Texas… he ended up with a strong second place finish. After that he flew back to Pocono the same night so he would be able to test Saturday morning for Sunday’s Sprint Cup race. He ended up crashing his cars during Saturday’s practice so he flew to Nashville for his Nationwide Series race at the Nashville Superspeedway. He had a disappointing 20th Place finish there but still had to fly back to Pocono to get ready for Sunday’s Sprint Cup race.
Kyle Busch knew before the Pocono Race started it was going to be a long race. Since he didn’t qualify for the race on Saturday, he was required to start in the back of the field. It looked like he picked a few cars off early in the race and then on lap 46 coming out of turn 3, he drifted up towards the wall and got into Jamie McMurray. This was basically the end of Mr. Busch’s day considering it took 2 hours for his crew to put the car back together. He came back out on lap 131 and finished the race but he still ended up in last place for the day.
It’s kinda funny, Kyle Busch tried to race three different races in three different states and thinks he can be competitive at all three tracks. I think Kyle needs to concentrate on one Series and do his best to dominate the series. I know he’s dominating everything he touches, but it’s kind of unrealistic to think he can go out there and win all three races. If you ask me, I think Kyle Busch was exhausted and not up for racing on Sunday. The kid flew back and fourth all three days and probably didn’t get much sleep. Flying from Texas to Pocono alone would make me exhausted… especially if I’m sitting first class and drinking up all the beer. Kyle places most of the blame on his spotter saying he didn’t say a word about where Jamie McMurray was. Kyle claims coming off turn 3 Jamie got a little squirly so he assumed Jamie slowed up a bit allowing him to move up against the wall. Little did he know Jamie didn’t even skip a beat and was right where he was supposed to be. I don’t know if Kyle was falling a sleep or if he was just ASSUMING. And we all know what happens when you ASSUME… you make and AS* out of U and Me. Overall I give Kyle Busch credit for trying to be a superstar but I wouldn’t reccomend he does it again. He needs to concentrate on earning his first Sprint Cup Championship and winning every race. I think Kyle Busch is an incredible racer and can win the championship this year… but if he continues to make bonehead decisions like this, he’s going to blow his chances.What are your thoughts? Should Kyle Busch concentrate on one series?
