No way. #1 Kyle Busch is 36. Hardly “advancing age” even by NASCAR standards. Not to mention he’s their flagship driver. 60 cup wins and 2 championships. He’s not going anywhere…..unless he wants to.

Read an interesting column I forgot which motorsports website yesterday. Professionally Kyle is in something of a prolonged performance drought. Missed playoffs back to back years and gone from a seasonal string of 1000 or more laps led to 1000 laps led......over the last 3 seasons.

Yeah, he's been a wheelman over the course of his career, but last 3 seasons not so much. Throw in the uphill fight for sponsorship dollars, the new tech and rules changes that are supposed to make it "cheaper" to run a Cup team, Kyle's a man without a chair when the music stops at Gibbs. The tone of his interview, while it is classic Kyle, speaks volumes. I took the "goodbye" utterance to mean he's not interested in driving for a "marker" team. If he can't land a competitive ride if his run with Gibbs is over......

Better go back and reread that article. Missed the playoffs? Let alone back to back. Didn’t happen.

I'd rather hear the announcers than the unending drone of an engine when the in car cameras are on screen. The team at Talladega worked well with each other but I couldn't hear half of it.
Great crowd there, unlike the last couple of weeks although the Martinsville weather was horrid.

How can anyone not like Foxs Krank it up noise and watching another race cars rear bumper of front bumper with same said track noise ...[emoticon] ?
I made the start of the race but its didn't take Fox but just a few laps to go inside the race car......soooo I jumped on the blue tractor/front loader and removed large dead tree limbs left from 3 days of 35-48 mph winds.
Later when I came back inside the wife tuned in to Fox and says 21 laps left in the race. Timed it just right for a crash/bang finish. Nice to watch the good guys win.

I kinda like the Krank it up. But, my old brain just discovered after re watching the Vikings, after not being able to hear or understanding their brogue I finally remembered closed caption. Can't tell you how much better the show is.

Four of us went to the race. First time at Talladega, had a good time.
Not sure if we will go back, Wisconsin to Alabama is a long haul.


No RV at the moment.
Looking to hit the road in a year or two.

If you've seen one plate race at a super speedway since NASCAR whoa'd them down in the mid 80's you're probably good. 2.6 miles at Talladega or 2.5 miles at Daytona, Potato/Potatoe..

Never been to Dega for a race, but did see it from 37000 ft on a flight to Arkansas. Very impressive view on a clear day.....

Can anybody recommend a computer program to decipher the rules and letting fans know just what the heck is going on during the All Star race? Again, they just don't understand the "KISS" theory. And a million to win, a complete joke!

The all star race has become the lottery of NASCAR. It's just dumb luck as to who wins with all the gimmickries they have built in. Basically it's bumper cars like at the beach pavilion.
