Mark Martin basically threw a monkey wrench in the works by not retiring just yet. In fact he just signed a deal to race in 10 races for Michael Waltrip Racing next season. Red Bull has refused to resign any drivers because they're pulling out of racing. Also you forget that if Kyle Busch does something else like he did this past weekend or publicly humiliates or disrespects ANY of the Nascar officials, he'll be suspended indefinately. Kyle Busch will screw that up.
You quoted someone that said "If Red Bull can't find a buyer" and said thats the exact reason Kasey Kahne is leaving. I said he already knew he would be leaving and thats not the reason. Just pointing out the truth. Kyle Busch WILL drive the 18 next year. They asked Joe Gibbs if he even thought of firing Kyle Busch and he said no. Yeah, he may not have M&M's but that doesn't mean he's going to get fired. They still have Interstate Batteries. Joe Gibbs won't fire him because they amount of races he wins.

Well true. I must've misread it a little bit, but if Kyle Busch doesn't keep his ego or temper in check, and does something stupid he is gone. Nascar has him on probation until December 31, 2011. One more incedent he's indefinately suspended. What do you think of the last race coming up this weekend? It's down to 2 drivers. Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart. Carl Edwards maintaned his lead of 3 points over Tony Stewart this past sunday and 3rd place on back in the points is out of it. 48 points is the most you can get per race and Kevin Harvick who is 3rd in the points is 51 points behind Tony Stewart.

I'm hoping that Tony wins it. All he has to do is lead laps and win. Which judging by the last few races, he can.

This past weekends race was pretty cool. Was good to see Kasey Kahne win this past weekend. That Redbull team would be a good one to buy for an investor. Keep Kasey and boot Vickers. I'd put Ron Hornaday in the seat or Reutimann.

Sorry I didn't see this thread sooner but after reading the whole thing I wonder how any of you could support a driver that did what Kyle Busch did.

That's how people die, what he did is inexcusable on a race track in any kind of racing. NASCAR should ban him out right and make sure he never sees the light of day past dirt tracks again. He's screw up with talent and it's only a matter of time until he costs someone their life instead of a race truck/car. NASCAR shows you just how much they have sold out by not doing so.

Ole Smoke really poured it on late in the year this season. Sould be good. I wish they ended it at Martinsville. In a heap of cars and tire smoke. That track rocks.

Homestead can be a little bit of a snore sometimes. We'll see though.

Though Tony is a part owner in that team, but to say that "to Carl, it's just a job" is laughable at best. To do this for a living with the schedule they have (it's like having a 7 day a week job) you have to be dedicated and have a deep down kind of passion for it.Tony and Carl are both class acts, so it don't matter who wins as long as it isn't Jimmy, or Kyle and we know that isn't going to happen.

Just a job, what a joke!!!!!

Yeah but Tony has already won 2 championships before and I can understand wanting to win another. Carl Edwards has come really close in the past few years but has never gotten to the pay window. It's time we had a new champion that we've never had before. Plus Tony Stewart is a prick on a good day when he's not on TV. He gives Mike Helton and Robin Pemberton a really tough time and it has nearly came to blows a few times.

He still had more of that car left at Phoenix. It was one of their best race cars they ever built. Plus they used that same car in Chicago at the start of the chase. Phoenix was an enigma this past weekend because they pushed the dog leg out 95 ft. and Goodyear brought a new tire specifically for that track. Carl Edwards got some experience by running the nationwide race. That helped Carl do extremely well at Phoenix. Here's another difference that I've seen over the entire chase. Tony Stewart won the first 2 races of the chase and then it went down hill during the race at Dover. He then picked up the pace with winning at both Charlotte and Martinsville back to back along with a couple of top 10 and top 5 finishes. Carl Edwards has been more consistant with both top 10 and top 5 finishes through out the entire chase with the exception to one where he finished 11th. Here's where I see Carl Edwards winning the title this year. Miami is an extremely good track for Carl Edwards and better than Tony's track record at Miami too. he's won the last 3 out of 4 races there and I don't see him doing poorly at that track at all. Tony has been a "hit or miss" at that track over the last 4 races held there. I want to see Carl Edwards win because it's a Ford engine and the race is called "Ford 400" and it would be nice to see another manufacturer get the title besides Chevy.

I can't stand him at all and to do what he did he'd be gone if I was in charge. Alot of people like to see some beating and banging while trying to win a race sure, but to watch it for the wrecks they're better off going to a demolition derby instead.

Yep. I have to agree because it's nothing to see them to put in a 100 hour work week just in the garage alone. Based apon my own driving experience when I drove an 18 wheeler for a living, it was nothing for me to run out of hours I can drive on a frequent basis. You can either work 60 hours in 7 days or 70 hours in 8 with the log book rules that they have now. The best rule change they made was instead of sitting for an entire week before you get some hours back so you can drive was when they fixed it to where you can sit for 34 hours to reset the amount of hours so you can drive again instead of a week and risk putting someone else into your truck while you take a week off to reset your hours. I've lost a few driving jobs that way and the company owners across the country applauded because they pretty much stopped losing money by letting a truck sit or replacing a driver on a frequent basis just trying to keep the truck from sitting. That was own my personal experience. So for someone to say that "they don't care" or "it's just a job to them" is really full of crap. You have to be really dedicated and have a passion for it to drive for a living. If I could pass a D.O.T physical right now, I'd be out there driving for a living in no time at all and without hesitation either. I loved it.

Very nice job man. I love how close it's become and with Miami coming up this weekend, that's where I see Carl Edwards winning it because it's one of his favorite tracks and he's won the last 3 out of 4 races there and the one he didn't win Tony Stewart won that one with Carl Edwards finishing 2nd. Tony Stewart has really been a hit or miss there over the last 4 years. I think it will come down to the very last lap of that race. The best part is that both drivers are having fun with each other during the interviews and both are acting like gentlemen off the track as well as on the track.
