EXPERIENCE HAS TAUGHT KYLE BUSCH WELL

 You hear coaches say you learn more from failure than you learn from success. Put another way, it is said in racing that to win a championship, you must first lose one.

A LITTLE LESS CONVERSATION AND A LITTLE MORE ACTION

 Now that's more like it! The NASCAR brass and chatter class can talk 'til the cows come home about what the sport needs, but the visual offered Sunday at Bristol Motor Speedway is a crystal clear picture of what fans like about racing.How complicated can it be?
