Last week, Kyle Petty took Jimmy Spencer's place on Speed before the NASCAR, so refreshing.

What I like about Kyle is his straight forward comments.

They talked about the two meetings NASCAR had last week and that they listened to the drivers and others involved.

But Kyle put it on the line, it's time for NASCAR to stop the talk and walk the walk.

As Kyle said: NASCAR, what you did was great, but before I believe it, show me.

It's about time announcers and other start to hold NASCAR accountable for their actions, we will listen and make changes.

I agree with Kyle, show me or shut up.
