i could careless of a provisional, tony hires him, tony is a fool, besides who is gonna wanna sponsor that big mouth? go daddy sure as #### wont, kurt is the biggest tool in nascar, he respects no one but himself, ya tonite he said everything perfectly, but he also said that when he got fired from rfr, kurt looks like the type of a wussy that would hit his gf or wife.. it was funny over the summer when JJ confronted him, kurt would have sucked JJ off until his crew got there, then all of the sudden he got muscles, he is a weasel,

Looks like Kurt & Kyle inherited some of the same genes. I share the opinion that I hope Tony isn't seriously considering Kurt, past champion or not. And yes, I hope this serves as a wake up call to Kyle. Coach Gibbs is willing to help Kyle for the time being, but now Kyle can see there are no guarantees in this sport. In this economy, the sponsors are in more control than ever. If they want a driver out bad enough, the team owner will kick him to the curb without blinking an eye.

Personally, I'd like to see Kurt sit out the 2012 season with no ride.

Anyone who hires Kurt Busch will probably have Kurt signed to some clause stating that if he steps out of bounds his employment will be terminated. The only good teams I could see him getting rides with are SHR (sadly) EGR (sadly), and maybe RPM. MWR pulled a scerew job on Reutimann for Martin could see it for Busch to Truex Jr. These are the onl;y good teams that can expand their programs. The guy is a douche and and prick but he can drive. It would be a starnge sport without him ina good ride. I must admit he is a character. He might have to take the Kimi route , try different motorsports and come back like in five years. But he will be in cup fulltime next year. Even if it is in a start park. His championship's provisonal is invaluable.

I've had concerns for the mental stability of both Busch brothers for some time. Have also wondered what kind of examples and mentors they had growing up. But I found what Kyle Petty said very interesting. KP said he did and said much worse then the KB boys in his day. The difference, there were no in car cameras, and the pits were not covered as closely as they are today. If this is true, I can't help wonder what else we have been missing all these years.

I saw the piece of what Kyle Petty had to say. It's no secret that Kyle grew up with a chip on his shoulder because he felt his dad gave more to racing than he did to the family. He solved that by "if you can't fight em join em". Kyle amitted he was a wild child but he grew up and made something out of himself. And he is right as there were no cell phones, Facebook Twitter,et.etc. As for the Busch boys they are so talented and had sucess so young that they haven't taken the time to grow up and see how the other half lives. Kyle Busch made a statement one time that he didn't have many friends as he was always at the race track and wasn't involved in school activities as he should have been.

well out of the three free agents in NASCAR w/out a ride, Ragan, Vickers< and Ruttiman if it were my job to pick a replacement for The Keebler Elf I'd go w/ Rutti. Vickers (although I do like him) spent how many years in Hendrick cars and got a mere what two wins? Ragan spent how many years at RFR and got a grand total of one win. Two of the best teams in the sport and between the two of them got three wins in like 10 years. Rutti on the other hand got two wins in three years driving for an average race team. I just think Rutti would be the best choice, and I myself personally like him. I would love to see what he could do w/ good equipment.

Please or please do not let him land at SHR. I'll deal with Danica, but one complaining #### on a team is enough.

One complaining #### is enough,true and funny! :lol:

I was thinking the same thing - I think David is the best choice. Besides, he is hosting his charity event this weekend, just down the road from me.

There was any driver that got the shaft this year it was Rutti and i myself would like to see him stay around for awhile,even if i don't care a whole #### of alot about the Cup series anymore.Roger letting Kurt go was no surprise to me,i often wondered why in the #### he hired him in the first place.Roger seemed to have Kurt under control for awhile,but i guess Kurt just can't help himself. :lol:
