Darlington Tonight! Dale Jr vs Kyle Bush
The NASCAR season is in full swing with my driver Jeff Burton 2nd in the points. Wise Girl's driver Denny Hamlin (that could change by race time) is 6th in the points.
The newly paved Darlington is fast! Look for lots of stripes on the cars before it is over. After the Kyle Bush-Dale Jr wreck last week, many are wondering if Jr will hold a grudge. IMHO Kyle did what any racer would do. He held the bottom and put Jr in the wall just the way the Dale Sr would have done it.
It was only a few days ago Busch and Earnhardt Jr. collided chasing victory at Richmond International Raceway. Dale Jr. admitted with a smile that Busch's racing style reminded him of his old man's earlier, hard-charging stock-car days.
"On the racetrack, there may be some comparisons there," Earnhardt Jr. said Thursday. "He's fast ... he's slick, he's aggressive."
"That's the way dad raced and Kyle has that same style," Earnhardt Jr. continued. "Very aggressive." LINK
Indeed. If Dale Jr had that same instinct he would be winning races. I hope they both take each other out early and Burton and Hamlin gain in the points.
