Five races in, and three of them Busched!

It's got to be some kind of record, the Busch family is doing more for NASCAR than the France family.

OK, that's a little over the top.

We all most agree, this is very interesting and maybe a first in NASCAR, the Busch brothers could very well win half of the races this season if Kurt keeps running as well as he has.

Let me say it again, they have the  potential to win half of the races in the 2009 season, do you think is possible?

That would be a great and much needed storyline for the 2009 season, can you imagine the copy on that story? It would hit every media front and center.

It could be a story that is followed by the fans, like the home run derby between Sosa and Mcguire.

Imagine, M&M's and Miller Lite would be in sponsorship hog haven, their products plastered in newspapers, television, and the wed.

NASCAR big shots would be dancing on top of their desks in their boxers. (Oh my god, sorry folks for giving you that image.)

If this can come true, it would be such a big lift for the teams, they may get new sponsors knocking down the doors, eager to put their pictures on every hood available.

I know there are many Kyle Busch haters out there, and I can understand why, but let's be practical, if you love the sport and you know it is going through tough times, a Kyle Busch type personality could help the sport bring in new fans.

Kurt Busch could be the equalizer—the good brother if you will.

I'll be pulling for this brothers to win week in and week out, that will be my 2009 season project, not because I'm a big fan, but because I think this would help the sport through this bad economy.

Here is a suggestion: Boo Kyle, and cheer when Kurt wins—that should balance things out.

On a side note: I have not researched NASCAR's past history, so I  don't know if this has happened before, that was not the scope of this story anyway.

Where can I comment?
