kurt busch

so heres the story,
Friday night he was ticketed out side the raceway for "reckless driving" with the smell of alchol on his breath!!!
he gave the officers a load of bad manners calling them wimps and asking them did they not know who he was.
he was brought back to the sheriffs office in the speedway and the machine for shecking blood alchol levels did not work, so they gave him the ticket said he blew a stop sign at speed and did not pull over immediately.
Next day jack roush released him from the 97 car siting that he had to under his contract with his sponsors.
Kenny Wallace drove the 97 on Sunday(came home 16th), and so the discussion begins.

He was "released" from the 2006 portion of his contract at his request. He was "suspended" for the remaining 2 races of the 2005 season after his little episode at the request of his sponsors. Like Crown Royal and Smirnoff want their names associated with a DUI....... He is a very talented driver BUT he's also a self absorbed little horse's behind that thinks his poop doesn't stink, he got what he deserved. JMO though.

I wonder what Kellog's thinks of Kyle's little diatribe on big brother's behalf? Better yet, I wonder what the exec's at Miller Brewing are thinking about now?!

bush

there is no doubt that he has talent but it takes more than talent in that world, he is not a Mark Martin or Rusty Wallace by any means, Roger Penske says that he is fully commited to him for next season. I am a hendrik fan but one has to wonder if Jack Roush had not got something to do with all of this!!!
I wonder what would have happened if he had of been top of the points?
I think the situation would have been handled differently.

Well it's time for my .02. I agree and disagree with some of the comments, however I think Jack Roush is a CHICKEN ****. If Kurt was going to be driving for Jack in 2006 He would have stood behind him 100% and smoothed things over with the sponsors. Jack has been in a pissed off mood since NASCAR told the teams that only 4(four) cars per owner. Jack is the only one with 5(five) and thinks NASCAR is picking on him. I think not. Let some new owners have a chance to bring some new talent into the sport. I didn't care for Kurt the first couple of years either, but I think He is learning and maturing. As a Rusty Wallace fan I wish him good luck in the future with Penske and the no.2 car.

Norm.

A little addition to Kurt's problems with the sheriff's office. When he was originally stopped he refused a field sobriety test. He was then arrested and brought to the sheriff's office at the race track for a Breathalyzer. He did blow an illegal alcohol level the first time. The machine malfunctioned the second time and since the Maracopa county sheriff's office requires two positives for a DUI they couldn't site him for that. Therefore he was sited for reckless driving.

That said, he's a first class cry baby and if I was Jack Roush I would have terminated his contract a long time ago. He won't last long with Penske either if you ask me. Face it, the guy has absolutely NO CLASS.

bah, just another example of some celebrity-*** getting off where the rest of us would have gotten hammered with a DUI, suspended license, felony on the record, huge fines and maybe even some jail time.

Land of the free. If you turn left for a living.

i think kurt is a great driver, he made a mistake and made it worse with a big mouth. most of us have made those errors at his age, like him we paid the price,jack did the right thing, he also released kurt for 2006 after putting up with a lot of crap, so probly looked for a oportunity to kick his *** out early
