Unfortunately did meet Kurt, not a pleasant experience at all. Spent a whole day with him and then his driver was late in picking him up. It was ugly.

Would you call him the Barry Bonds of racing?


DETAILS PLEASE.

Never met Bonds so...

Won't divulge details. I'll just say we were both tired after a long day, both wanted to go home. I could have left him alone to wait for his driver and go on home. But I stuck around for an hour waiting with him, least he could is act like I'm in the room with him and at least try to engage in some polite conversation with sighing, and rolling your eyes every two minutes.

Learned your lesson. Next time you'll leave..lol


I say Barry Bonds because Bonds was notorious for having this anti-social type of attitude. He didn't like the media, and pretty much showed it throughout his career. It's why he was never loved like Ken Griffey, Jr. or Derek Jeter. Those guys had some sort of personality (at least in public) that got people to like them. Barry, not so much.

I get you should never talk to people like that, but he works in one of the most competitive professions in the world and is putting his life at risk each time he goes out. Theres really no room for incompetence or error and if someone messes up you cant really just shrug it off or youre eventually gonna be out of a job or die. Although I have no idea what the context was......


Everything you shouldnt say or do during interviews (3 minute mark is the best):

Re: Ricky Bobby rides again!


It won't be long before the Busch brothers are out of racing all together due to their attitudes and actions. The thing I find most funny is that he is employed by a man known for his integrity/character in that of Joe Gibbs. Why did Gibbs even hire this assclown?

Re: Ricky Bobby rides again!

Kyle is probably the best race car driver in the world or at least in the top 3. He is very talented. Him and Tony Stewart can drive anything with wheels to victory lane.

I like to say that the WWE is just a soap opera for guys. Im starting to think that the personalities and love/hate attitudes people have for NASCAR drivers is along the same lines.

However, I will say that after watching my first race ever last year, i have tons of respect for racin'. I used to think it was the dumbest thing in the world, but these guys actually have tons of talent and its pretty impressive what they do.

As noted, Kyle is a heck of a driver. Gibbs had some assclowns wear Burgundy and Gold as well. But if anyone can keep talented assclowns in check it's Gibbs.

Look at Denny Hamlin, tremendous driver. Total dick

Re: Ricky Bobby rides again!

I was a big Bill Elliott fan until he "retired" and became an occasional, part-time driver.

Now I root for whomever is driving for Joe Gibbs even if no one else likes them. I just root for the Gibbs team.


I'm also a fan of Mark Martin. He's a physical beast.

Re: Ricky Bobby rides again!

F you!!!! Denny Hamlin is the best racer of all time. Youre the dick. Denny put Richmond back on the map!!!!


Side note: I know a girl that went back to Denny Hamlin's hotel about 5+ years ago when there was a Crown Royle race in town. It was early in his career so sponsers and news and stuff were making a big deal about a local kid coming home for a big race, so he had name recognition even for non race fans (like this girl). Turned out not to be Denny Hamiln....
