I'm still trying to figure out the dynamic behind all the hate by many NASCAR fans toward Kyle Busch.

Is NASCAR not an entertainment venue? Is Kyle entertaining?

I think so, but maybe you see it different.

I made an effort to read all I could about the most popular driver in NASCAR's history, Dale Earnhardt.

In comparing both drivers, I can only come up with one conclution.

Kyle Busch is Mother Teresa (the nun), prince charming, and the good boy next door, all in one.

For God's sake folks, Earnhardt was called the Intimidator!

Let me give the Webster definition of intimidator, just in case some folks are not clear of the definition.


Intimidator:intimidate, cow, bulldoze, bully, browbeat mean to frighten into submission. intimidate implies inducing fear or a sense of inferiority into another <intimidated by so many other bright freshmen>. cow implies reduction to a state where the spirit is broken or all courage is lost cowed by the odds against making it in show business>. bulldoze implies an intimidating or an overcoming of resistance usually by urgings, demands, or threats <bulldozed the city council into approving the plan>. bully implies intimidation through threats, insults, or aggressive behavior <bullied into giving up their lunch money>. browbeat implies a cowing through arrogant, scornful, or contemptuous treatment <browbeat the witness into a contradiction


Clear enough?

So I just don't understand all the hate towards Kyle Busch. Does this definition describe Kyle Busch?

That answer is simple: No.

Where has all the love gone? Kyle is a great kid, a great driver, and certainly not an intiminator.

Kyle Busch is a star and the fans should just enjoy him. You can still boo him for fun, but do enjoy his racing. He will be around for a long time.
