Nascar going down the tubes

Kyle Busch wrecks youngster Kyle Larson on last lap after getting passed..... Lack of rules and penalties sucks. Losing interest...

Don't forget Larson did the same exact thing to Busch the lap before.To many rules imo,its so micro managed its sickening.The whole "play-off "format sucks.Stage racing sucks.

Once Gordon retired I was done anyways...he was the last of the truly old school drivers.The 70s-90s were great years for racing.

I will probably catch the last few laps at Kentucky tonite but that's about it.

"It ain't cheating unless you get caught!"When that was the attitude,Nascar was at its best.

If you have to wreck someone in order to pass them, that is BS.

Dale Earnhardt won many a race doing exactly that,it was his signature.Nothing new to racing,its been happening since racing began.

Doesn't make it right or admirable.

I agree but nobody would've ever watched if those kind of moments didn't happen.Think about the 79 Daytona 500,what if that moment had never happened?

Pffft. Don't even know what happened. I am/was a casual fan who admires speed and skill of drivers at speed. Key word; skill.

Rule changes as a sport evolves makes for a better sport, in most cases. Nascar does not have rules on track. Same rules as chariots in ancient Rome... wreck 'em you win. And Kyle Busch needs someone to eff him up....

Exactly my point.Google 79 Daytona 500.

If you admire speed and skill and think these guys lack it then you really are a casual fan.

Same rules as ancient chariots...not really.The amount of on track rules is bigger than the US tax code,its so micro-managed its sickening.

Outside of recently retired drivers like Gordon and Jr. and current drivers like Harvick and Truex,Kyle Busch though not the most likable is one on the most skilled drivers to EVER sit behind the wheel.

As far Nascar going down the tubes I would agree but it has nothing to do with how drivers like Busch drive,its the insane amount of rules and the stupidity of the playoff system and stage racing.The longtime hardcore fans like myself can't stand this type of crap racing.

Simply put:just let them race.

Sorry. Not buying what you are selling. Busch drove deliberately into the rear of Larson's car with the intent to wreck him on the last half of the last lap of the race. He did it, spun the car down the track and ended up with the win. That is BS. That is not door to door racing. Kyle is a punk, narcissist, no matter his driving skill. Whining about too many rules in place rings empty when they can't even police that BS.
