CREW CHIEFS READY FOR RAINY CONDITIONS

MARTINSVILLE, Va._ With a bleak forecast for Sunday’s Sprint Cup Series race at Martinsville, teams were forced to roll out the rain gear, car covers and heavy jackets. As the teams and fans wait and see what Mother Nature has in store for them, the strategy for Sunday’s race changes just a bit. If the race can get underway, teams will be racing to the 250-lap mark, not the scheduled 500. Once the race reaches the halfway point the race is official and can be ended and a winner decla ...

ROGERS ADMITS FRUSTRATION, REFUSES TO BE RATTLED

BRISTOL, TENN._ To say Joe Gibbs Racing is not where they would like to be four races into the 2010 Sprint Cup season is a fairly safe assumption. In particular, Kyle Busch’s season has yet to live up to expectations. The No. 18 team has yet to finish in the top-10, is 15th in the standings and failed to break into the top-20 in any of the practice sessions this weekend in Bristol. A three time winner at the ‘World’s Fastest Half-Mile,’ Busch and crew chief Dave Rogers we ...

FIVE CHAMPIONSHIPS KYLE BUSCH IS GUNNING FOR IN 2010

Beating the best competition is hard; beating inexperienced competition is easy.  Kyle Busch is carving out a niche for himself by losing big titles (he missed the Chase for the Cup) and winning against lesser-experienced racers (recent titles include Pensacola's Snowball Derby and NASCAR's Nationwide Series.)  While he might not do everything it takes to win a Sprint Cup championship, he is gunning for several other titles. Here are five championships Kyle is gunning for in 2010:Ben F ...

TOP STORY NO. 11: KYLE BUSCH SUCKS, ROCKS

 There are many words that can be used to describe Kyle Busch. Most can’t be published on this site, and we publish all sorts of crazy @#%. But regardless of what you think of Kurt’s little brother, one thing is clear. He generates interest. Enough to be our No. 11 top story of 2009.  What happened?What didn’t happen? In the Nationwide Series, he won the points title, winning nine races during the season. One of those wins was in Nashville, where he took a Les Paul ...

WHO IS DAVE ROGERS?

A quick personal note: My editor sent me an e-mail asking me to do a story on Dave Rogers. Normally I have a decent memory, but I had to go back to my e-mail twice to remember the name Dave Rogers. Then, like many of you, I asked the same question. Who in the blue hell is Dave Rogers? Turns out he might be the most important person in Kyle Busch’s career. And he was a focal point in one of racing’s biggest scandals last year. Dave Rogers will take over as Busch’s crew chief ...

LOGANO AND BUSCH ON ‘RAW’

Kyle Busch and Joey Logano were guest hosts on "WWE RAW" last night, and their appearance had it all - a cool entrance, beautiful women, insults, intrigue, bravado, a slam on Terrell Owens, a Kyle Busch verbal gaffe, Big Show and little Hornswoggle. The only letdown: that Tom Logano-Greg Biffle match I hoped for never materialized.   ...

KYLE BUSCH AND JOEY LOGANO GET RAW

Racing fights stink. Fat-free muffins are more fulfilling. So let’s hope NASCAR's bad boy and boy wonder pick up some lessons from the good folks over at WWE. Kyle Busch and Joey Logano are set to host Monday Night Raw. The show airs Monday at 9 PM ET on the USA Network.  Let’s get the obvious jokes out the way:No, Brian Vickers won’t be forced to wrestle Busch and three other dudes with one arm tied behind his back.No, Joey Logano’s dad won’t be in a cage m ...

KYLE BUSCH NOS BOTTLE MYSTERY SOLVED

Kyle Busch, it would appear that someone is pouring a foreign liquid into that NOS energy drink bottle. Hmmmm. What, exactly, is going on here? Why would anyone refill an empty energy drink bottle? I wonder, I wonder. Video below.  According to YouTube user 88Racinamp (that wouldn't be a Junior fan's handle, would it?) this happened right after Busch's win at Bristol. Busch, of course, is sponsored by NOS. What do you think is going on here? UPDATE: Busch public relations rep Bill J ...

VICKERS, BUSCH ONLY BUBBLE DRIVERS WITH SHOT AT MAKING THE CHASE

With one race left before the Chase field is set, you can almost throw out all of the old probability tables we have discussed before. Obviously, anything can happen in this final race.Fortunately we have a guide: the previous 25 races this season. If we simulate this Saturday night's race at Richmond by taking the results from the past 25 races this year, we can narrow the possibilities of what the standings could look like on Sunday. Most importantly, we can use these numbers to get a good sen ...
