He acts like a badass on the track and has been brash, arrogant, and condescending with the media, but when another driver comes after him for his antics, "Rowdy" chickens out and drives away.

His new nickname: Wussy.

I wouldn't call it clever, I'd call it dangerous. Sprint Cup cars have reverse and there's more than 1 opening in the pit wall. He could have backed up and driven to the other end of pit road instead of potentially endangering lives.

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.

Without getting too descriptive, I was really surprised Shrub actually made it to the 10th Cup race of the season before the facade of maturity gave way to his typical antics again. What a punk.

However, I also want to say CONGRAT'S to Regan Smith and the whole #78 team. Way to go grabbing your first Cup win (and keeping it!).

This wussy is a disgrace to NASCAR, period. I say get rid of the Busch brothers all together. Kyle is NOT a good driver. He is reckless. Who knows when he is gonna take half the field out, or hurt or kill someone.

I am not for fighting in sports, unless its a fighting sport of course, but I would have loved it if Harvick punched kyles goofy looking face in.

The stupid part about all this is that, Regan Smith, who won his first cup race (CONGRATS!!), had the show stolen from some punk who needs to get his stupid face in everything, win or lose.

Ahhh, in another episode of "As the Hyprocrisy Turns" the 29 bumps the 18 during the final laps of the race, the 18 retaliates a lap or so later by hooking the 29. The 18 is confronted on pit road by the 29 AND a crew member and yet somehow the 18 is the bad guy.

When you (NASCAR) make a statement such as that you must expect there will be unexpected methods of "having at it."

Yeah, tell me about hypocrisy. We all know if that 18 car was any other car pushing 29 out of the way, we would have heard all sorts of comments like, "I don't care who you are, you don't do that", from DW and co. DW is so blind when it comes to his poster boy busch, he actually thought 29 took off by itself.

Well, I'm interested in seeing what Nascar does here.

'Have at it boys' is one thing, but pit road has been deemed a safe and secure area where antics are not supposed to play out.

I don't care which two cars were involved, I'm curious to see if pit road really is off-limits or not. I guess we'll find out on Tuesday.
