I'm pretty sure "Have at it boys," doesn't include spinning cars on pit road. Expect both of them to get penalized and put on probation.[/quote]

I see in Kyle Bush the same type of driver, run up front all day and force the other guys to try and keep up. If somebody gets in your way bump them out of the way.
I don't see how that is any different than Earnhardt other than Earnhardt did it first and for a longer period of time.

Kyle Bush drives just like Jr. fans wished he drove.

Another thing just as many fans dislike Bush as fans disliked Earnhardt Sr.

That is why I say they are similar.
Very well put. I agree 100%.

Give it a rest. He didn't win 4 in a row so I guess he was not as good as JJ

One thing no one is mentioning is back in the day the competition was nothing like today. There were probably only 10 cars that could actually win. Today the competition is much greater with many of the drivers being capable of winning! I am not disagreeing or agreeing with anyone just making an observation....

Very true which makes JJ's accomplishments so amazing and I'm not even a JJ fan.
