Your take on the Kyle Busch / Carl Edwards incident?

For those that missed it, Edwards gave Busch a bump entering a corner (forget the lap #) and then passed him. Busch trys to return the favor by bumping him just before the corner, but couldn't manage a pass. Edwards goes on to win, and just before the celebration (when everyone is congratulating Edwards) Busch runs into the side of him. Edwards responds by spinning Busch.
I'm surprised this hasn't been brought up given that Busch is a JGR driver.

What's your take on this?

Re: Your take on the Kyle Busch / Carl Edwards incident?

Edward' said it all when he said basically that he asked himself would Kyle do this (referring to the prospect of bumping Busch to get a pass)? Well Edward's was pretty sure Kyle would have done it and I think there aren't a lot whole lot of people who'd argue. Seems like the guy everyone loves to hate can dish but can't take the heat.

So true.
Edwards actually brought up a nationwide race where Busch did that exact thing to him.

This is the reason everyone loves to hate Busch.

Re: Your take on the Kyle Busch / Carl Edwards incident?

I think it's great. Kyle Busch has been dominating the Sprint Cup series this year. And now Edwards is making a strong run, should make for a great Chase and rivalry for years to come.

Edwards is a great young driver but-like Hamlin-he seems to get a free pass for his behavior. He's just as "competitive" as the rest of them. Almost exactly two years ago, Edwards did the same thing to Dale Jr. that Busch did to him when Junior spun him out with a couple of laps left to go in a race.

But what happened this weekend is carry over from many months of racing, which Edwards and Busch going back and forth with each other, on and off the track

Re: Your take on the Kyle Busch / Carl Edwards incident?

These kinds of incidents are definitely good for NASCAR. They bring the sport into the forefront of minds and sports.
This is certainly a fun rivalry to watch this year. Funny how they have similar styles of driving, yet I (as well as several NASCAR fans) don't mind when Edwards does it, but we dislike Busch A LOT! Busch is arrogant while Edwards is polished.

Hopefully when the chase starts the Hendricks guys will be ready to make a run at number 1 and knock these guys off.

Busch stopped in at my job the other week (we're one of his primary sponsors, obviously) and the dude is a tool. His girlfriend was nice and pretty hot though.

I thought Kyle was worse from what I have heard. I do know everyone hates them both either way.
