Can't wait to hear the rest of the details, but this one has a really good storyline!

Childress vs. Busch had an altercation at Chicago after the truck race.

God I hope it's true. Busch looks like the type of pu--y that would get beat up by a senior citizen. Hell, most of NASCAR is like that now.

According to this, from NASCAR's point of view KB did nothing that hasn't been done for years.

Childress was the one who was out of line.

Joey Coulter had no problem with the incident;

“I learned a ton (riding) behind (Busch) and I know why those guys keep saying what they do. That was really awesome racing him,” Coulter said after the race.

“I hate we got together on the last lap. I had never gotten tight next to somebody, so I was underneath him expecting to get loose, and I get tight and we kind of got together.”

I can't stand Kyle and he had it coming but this is one time he showed some good judgement.....(don't know about Kansas law, but in some states it's a serious felony to strike a senior citizen).

DW and I are in lockstep on this one, so it's been a fun story here. It's good that you and DH can agree to disagree. That's key to a good relationship!

As to the deal itself, altercations have been happening for years in Nascar from the local tracks right up to the big boys; long before the 'modern' fans have come into the sport and started calling for suspensions, bans and police involvement.

Also remember, this wasn't about another owner messing with a driver. These two guys were BOTH owners in the race that preceded the altercation. I'm not happy that it came to a physical altercation, but sometimes this is the course of action emplyed to correct an issue.

Those laws only apply when the senior citizen is the victim.

That being said...GOOD FOR CHILDRESS! Somebody needs to get weed under control!

A couple of different viewpoints;

Childress should be ashamed of himself | Motorsports | Sports | Toronto Sun

quote
"If Busch fights back he is seen as picking on a senior citizen and if he doesn’t — as he did not at Kansas — he is seen as a somewhat wimpish.
Well it says here that he is neither. Busch did the right thing by not fighting back against an elderly man more than twice his age."


"A $1-million fine in this case might not even be enough. Maybe take 43 points — the equivalent of a race win — from each of his NASCAR teams would be a suitable punishment."

Even when Shrub doesn't want to be in the spotlight, he still finds his way into it. This time it was RC who initiated the stealing of the weekend NASCAR spotlight. What Kyle did on the track was no "deal" at all, but RC and his teams have a chubby for the Shrubber.
