    There have been several news reports today, reporting that Roger Penske Racing has fired Kurt Busch and sent him packing.

    For those of you who follow NASCAR closely, any insights on what is going on here?

    He made a mistake at the last race of the year at Homestead. He flipped the bird at the crowd in the infield which included the First Lady(he didn’t know she was there) . He has had trouble controlling his anger. Shell Oil, his car’s sponsor told Roger Penske they wanted Busch gone. With sponsorship money drying up like it has driver’s need to maintain a certain image these days.

    Isn’t it ironic that the current reigning Sprint Cup Champion, Tony Stewart, also had anger management issues just a few short years back.

    Yes, it is ironic. It is a strange situation where the championship winning crew chief no longer has a job with Stewart.

    There are several revolving doors in Nascar every year… both Busch brothers have made very poor decisions this year and it’s bitten Kurt this time. No one wants to deal with a driver who cannot control his temper, and these two are fine examples of that. Kurt is supposedly in counseling for his anger, but has many personal issues that also cause problems on and off the track.

    Tony Stewart is a great guy, you cannot even compare the two. I’ve met/seen Tony several times through the years and you couldn’t ask for a nicer guy who appreciates what he has, his fans and so much more. As for his crew chief, that change was set in stone before the chase was even started and Darian Grubb knew that. Yes, Tony won a championship with him, but he’s looking to go in a different direction in 2012 with a new crew chief. Changes happen often and quickly, it’s great to get a ride in Nascar, just don’t count on it last forever with the same people/team.

    The Busch brothers both need a good ass whoopin’, that will straighten them out. Where’s Jimmy Spencer when you need him?

    And if he did flip the bird to the infield, knowing Moochelle was in attendance, that doesn’t deserve a firing – it deserves a handshake :whistle:

    Ya think he’d learned a lesson from the last time when Roush sent him pack’n.
