Kurt Busch fucked himself. He could have stayed in Top-10 equipment indefinitely if he just shut his trap.

I used to work with John Benson Sr. It was great talking racing with someone with an inside perspective on things.

Let's see... She has had capable equipment, been on capable teams with more than capable strategists.... what's missing
And her 10th or 11th race in the big game.

No, years in IRL don't count. Completely different car. She ran a good race, now she needs to learn how to close out the deal.

Just hope nobody dies for the sake of entertaining the masses.
Looks like I wasn't far off
