Nascar's Young Drivers...Is this the future?

Is this the future of NASCAR? Week by week it seems that the Busch brothers have dominated the pack.Three out of five races were won by them.Two races for Kyle and one for Kurt.Keep in mind that Kyle Busch is only a twenty-three year old basic rookie. Kurt has more experience than Kyle. Three or four years ago it seemed that the Winston/Nextel cup championship was a whole lot closer and more dramatic than it is now. I mean don't get me wrong I have respect for these drivers but three Nextel Championships in a row is just dominant. I am certainly glad that Jimmie Johnson is not winning this year. The youngest driver in NASCAR history entered this year's pack, Joey Lagano. Joey is only 18 years old. He has had his drivers license for two years and already in the big leagues. I think that these drivers (Kurt and Joey) should have to work their way up the totem pole. I wanted everyones opinions on rookie drivers that do not have much driving experience. Why can't it be more like the old days of Dale Jarett, Bill Elliot, Dale Earnhardt, Terry and Bobby Labonte,etc. At least they were veterens when they started winning!p>
