Kyle Busch And The Final Ten Races

Michael VoyerSenior Analyst IJuly 16, 2008

Kyle (Rowdy) Busch, it seems like only yesterday he was a hero in the Busch Series (Now the Nationwide Series). Now he is the points leader holding the most wins and top five's of any driver in the series this season. With all the fingers pointed at Kyle for all his rough driving, we have yet to think about what can happen to him. New Hampshire for example, he got spun out.

I know that the likelihood of Kyle getting spun out the final ten races is almost impossible, but if Earnhardt Jr. or Burton can capitalize on a bad Kyle day then it will be easy riding from there on out.

It does seem like Kyle will win the championship, and I'm voting for Kyle since he is most likely to, yet we are all forgetting that after Richmond the points get crunched, so Kyle will only have a five point lead on who ever is second.

That means if Kyle has a bad day next week at New Hampshire, he will lose the point lead. Lets try to remember the big picture here and not forget that Kasey Kahne had the most wins last year but the points champion was Jimmie Johnson, just saying.
