The Busch Series and I don't mean Anheuser

We may as well call it The Busch Series. The Busch Brothers have been on fire for the 2009 season. Every track that NASCAR has visited has resulted with one or both of the Busch brothers being in Victory Lane. In Daytona, Kyle won the 2nd Gatorade Dual - In Fontana, Kyle won the Nationwide race - In Las Vegas, Kyle won the Sprint Cup race & the Truck race - In Atlanta, Kurt won the Sprint Cup race and Kyle won the Truck Race. That's right...Kyle has won at every track that they have visited this year.

  • Kurt Busch is currently 2nd in points, with 1 win, 1 top 5 and 1 top 10.
  • Kyle Busch is currently 5th in points with 1 win and 1 top 5 (his Dual win doesn't count). Kyle is also 3rd in the Nationwide Series with 1 win and 1st in the Truck Series with 2 wins.
The Busch brothers aren't exactly fan favorites. I personally like Kurt and Kyle's talent is starting to grow on me. No matter what way you look at it, both of these brothers are extremely talented. How long do you think it will take for sibling rivalry to get in the way? That will make for an interesting season!

I am much more apt to be happy for Kyle's wins this season, now that he's being much less of a doucheface. Think mommy had a talk w/him in the off season??

It's awesome to see Kurt having a great start to the season, especially after last year.

Kurt once said that we had better watch out cause his younger brother was better than him so I think Kurt knows how good Kyle is.

As long as they keep winning I am going to enjoy this season
