Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch express their Love!
Last weekend in the final laps of the Sharpie 500, Carl Edwards and Kyle Busch decided they wanted to start showing each other how they really feel. Carl Edwards worked all night trying to pass Kyle Busch but just couldn’t seem to get him on the high side. During the last few laps Carl Edwards dipped into the corner and taped Kyle’s left rear bumper causing him to lose control and allowing Carl to slide by gaining the lead.
Carl Edwards went on to win the race but not without getting into a little pushing match with Kyle Busch. After Carl Edwards got the checkered flag, Kyle Busch drove up beside him and rubbed the side of his car. “The Nice Guy” Carl Edwards immediately drove into Busch and spun him out. The crowd went absolutely CRAZY. It was awesome to see some drama go down on the track. It’s not too often these days you see emotion on the track.
In a post race interview Carl Edwards says “It’s one of those deals where I couldn’t get by him, I couldn’t get by him, and I just had to ask myself, ‘Would he do that to me?’
Of course Kyle Busch would do that to him… he’s been doing it all season.
The funniest part about this little drama is that after the race, Kyle Busch was seen whining like a little girl saying “wittle Cawl Edwads pwushed me.” If you ask me… I think Kyle Busch gets what he deserves… karma’s a bitch and if you can dish it out, then you need to learn how to take it.
Check out the drama unfold
NASCAR just announced that both drivers were slapped on the hand and were given probation for the next 6 races. If anything… I think the two should be patted on the back for creating an exciting ending to an awesome race. NASCAR needs to commend these two racers for showing their feelings and creating an exciting rivalry. NASCAR needs more moments like this…. this is what gets fans on their feet.
Kyle Busch is an incredible racer but if you haven’t noticed, when he’s the bad guy he’s loving life. He’ll go out there tap bumpers, spin people out, race rough, and walk around the pits like he’s God’s gift to NASCAR. But the minute someone else bumps him or passes him aggressively the kid starts whining. “Cawl Edwads, Cawl Edwads… he bumped me, he bumped me!” Save the drama for the track and show “Cawl Edwads” that you’re supposed to be the “bad guys” and that he needs to go back to being the “Nice Guy”
I’m jacked up to watch the rest of the season… it’s going to be an awesome race for the chase. I think Carl Edwards is going to be a force to be reckened with. It seems as though he’s the only one that has Kyle Busch’s number.
I can’t wait to watch the rest of the season unfold. So what do you guys think? Is Kyle Busch a whiner or is he in the “right” here?
