Kurt Busch???

I waited to find out his reasoning for his actions at today's race, and to sum it up he stated he noticed the car could still roll and wanted to hurry up and get it to the garage area for repairs so he could get back out because of the competitive nature in him.  Seriously??? taking off with a safety guy practically hanging through the window and equipment on top of the car while you sped off?? While running his last race for this team which has been nothing short of a nightmare, this guy is a mess, does anyone really thinks he still belongs in nascar?? sorry for beating the dead horse, but maybe someone could tell me something about this guy that I'm not seeing that would make him still appealing to car owners that hire him???
 
I feel the same way. Im surprised he can get offered a job. I couldnt imagine that he can actually offer anything to anybody asside from an un wanted assache

They didn't stop Dale Sr. when he was about to go in the Meat Wagon and he noticed his tires were still up on his flatteded out race car. NOBODY would have been allowed to come back out with that piece.

I was waiting for someone in the media to bring up that point, but I guess they overlooked that....probably because Earnhardt was a "champ", while Busch (both of them, actually) is a "chump".

Dale Sr. did what he did without putting anybody at risk, and was able to finish the last lap thereby earning more points than the cars that were disabled.  That could be used as an illustration of a competitive nature.  Busch had people in and on the car, and it was so early in the race that it should have been clear to a mentally disabled chimp that he could not possibly get the repairs needed to gain points on anybody.  That is more an illustration of extreme narcissism.  To try and put the "competitive nature in me" label on it was a stretch. 
 
He is a danger to himself and everyone else the minute he straps in. But, like someone said before, he has a champions provisional in his back pocket, so the "also ran" teams will be lining up to put him in the seat whenever he needs a ride.
 
I hope that Barney Visser savors the top 5 finish that Regan Smith gave him on Sunday. It may be the last one he sees in a VERY long time.
And Barney needs to triple his equipment repair budget right away...

Get a grip Busch haters.  This was not a big deal. 

No safety workers or small farm animals were harmed when Kurt tried to get the car back so he could get repairs.  Yes, an emergency bag from the safety team suffered some minor damage when it fell off the car and rolled on the asphalt, but this was minor compared to the carnage caused by the current Champion on the final lap....

If Junior did this the "Nation" and the press would have a front page headline touting what a fierce and dedicated competitor and all-around model of a NA$CAR driver he is.

Meanwhile, Tony Bonehead Stewart decides that since he can't win the race he'll wreck the field at 200 miles per hour and put everyone's life in danger and NA$CAR beams and says, "Come to Talladega and see the stars of NA$CAR block each other and crash."

And they call it racing.....

I'm a Earnhardt Sr and Jr fan and I give Ratzo an attaboy for that one. I wonder what Sr. would have said to that heavy set official when they told him to get in the truck. I hope that medical bag is ok.
 
No safety workers or small farm animals were harmed
Last night on Sirius NASCAR radio Robin Pemberton stated that Kurt Busch's action placed the track worker in danger, and Pemberton's opinion carries more weight.
If this had happened at SL2 Joe Buchek would have unleashed a can of whoop-arse on the driver and taken away his fur lined racing accessories.

I would like to know if Kurt asked them to get away from the car.  I would like to know how long Kurt was trying to start the car and how long the car was actually running before he took off.  I would also like to know if NASCAR was on the radio with those workers trying to get them to hold him up on purpose.  They saw what Kurt did in a Nationwide race with a torn up car earlier in the year and I think NASCAR didn't want him to outshine Big E's moment at Daytona where he climbed back into the car.

When Kurt tried starting the car that would have been my first instinct to get phuck away from the car.  Why would they still be in the car if he was trying to get it started?

If Kurt Busch accidentally stepped on a ladybug in the pit area, Pemberton would be on the radio talking about how it put the track workers in danger and was detrimental to the sport of France Cup racing.....

Thanks for the comment Gomer....

Pretty sure you don't know that for sure.  Sometimes having a car that is wadded up in the rear is a huge areo advantage.  Mark Martin show us that at the slowest track on the circut.  They could have manipulated that car as long as it had the spoiler on it.

Many people were sure Dale Earnhardt wasn't going to get back in his car either.
