Kyle Busch: Again and Again
The unstoppable Kyle Busch swept in Chicagoland. He not only won the Nationwide Cup race, but also surprisingly won the Sprint Cup race on Saturday night on the last lap.
I don’t know about my readers, but I’m sick of hearing and talking about Kyle Busch. I love watching him on the track, don’t get me wrong, but with all the wins he has, it seems as if this website is geared towards him.
And it’s not. How can I stop talking about him? The kid continues to amaze the world with his relentless victories.
Saturday Night’s Sprint Cup race was one helluva race. Leaders included Busch, Carl Edwards, Jeff Gordon, Greg Biffle, Greg Vickers, Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Kurt Busch, and well…I had my heart set on my boy Tony Stewart, who ran hard and in the top-five all race, but unfortunately led for a VERY short time.
I was hoping and praying that Stewart would have a chance to take this race home, but it never came to fruition. I was on the edge of my seat the entire race and may have quite possibly drank 10 too many beers, but what happens during a NASCAR race happens.
I reckon I can’t be accountable for something that I just cannot control, and when my boy is in the top-five is when I really start to pound the beers.
The last 25 laps came down to three of the strongest cars all night: Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson, and Kevin Harvick.
It looked like, once again, Kyle Busch was going to win this race unchallenged, and that’s when Johnson charged to the front, passing Busch on the inside.
The man exploded past Busch and never turned back. It was lap 16, and there was no stopping him. Busch was heard radioing to his crew, “race over”.
It was evident Johnson had the strongest car at that point, and there wasn’t much that could be done until David Gililand caused a yellow flag, giving Busch another opportunity.
Jimmie Johnson wasn’t concerned: “Before that last caution came out, we were gone," he said. "And you know, we had such a great car I really felt like the restart would come and we would march off and be fine.”
Take a look at the last 16 laps and the incredible restart Kyle Busch had. With two laps left, he was able to squeeze by Johnson on the outside, where it was all over but the crime.
Side Notes: Carl Edwards has had a strong season thus far and led a few laps here in Chicagoland. He unfortunately broke his splitter brace, which would put him out of contention.
Dale Earnhardt, Jr. struggled all race, finishing in 16th along with Kasey Kahne in 15th.
The Ryan-Newman-joining-Tony-Stewart talk is still running rapid in the pits, and it sounds to me that Newman will in fact be racing for Stewart-Haas. The two are friends on and off the track, they’re both from Indiana, and it just so happens Newman’s contract is up after this season with Penske.
For those of you who heard the rumors of Barack Obama sponsoring a Sprint Cup team: “The Obama campaign will not be sponsoring a car in the Sprint Cup Series, though we will continue to look for ways to reach out to voters and convey Senator Obama’s message of change.” said Bill Burton, an Obama campaign spokesman.
I also read a news article written by USNEWS.com where they interviewed Jimmie Johnson and Chandra Johnson and spoke about NASCAR fans being McCain supporters. I also wanted to thank USNEWS.com for referencing my website in their article!
Thanks for the traffic. Alright, Ron Ripplers…What were your thoughts for the race?
