FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks

Kyle Busch missed his sweep this weekend. What a bummer that was.

I think the worst thing that could have happened in this case did happen.

I mean,what's worse than winning two races in one weekend and not winning the third race due to an incident that was in no way your fault?

Well, actually, there are a few things I could think of but they're irrelevant to the point.

I'm glad Bowyer spotter took responsibility for what happened. It's always nice when situations like this go down and someone steps up and says, "Man, you guys, I really messed up. My bad". Instead of everyone pointing the finger at someone else or at each other and nothing ever really gets accomplished.We've seen the latter happen a few too many times.

This wasn't Kyle's first attempt at a sweep nor would it have been his first sweep and I'm sure he'll try again.

Side note: Am I the only one who doesn't care for the rule change that if you compete in one series in a given season, you can't earn points in another?

It's kind of a letdown that I'll never see Kyle - or anyone for that matter - win two championships in a given year. Personally, I think an accomplishment like that would speak volumes about the driver. But no, NASCAR had to take that away too.

Moving on. Pocono is up next weekend. Hamlin has always been particularly good here. I'll be keeping a keen eye on this next race.
