Kyle Busch has been dropped by his main sponsor, confectionery brand M&M's, for the rest of the season following Busch's on-track retaliation against Ron Hornaday that saw him penalised at Texas.

... and NASCAR keeps bleating on about how they are what other forms of motorsport should aspire to...

1) Crew chiefs banned for illegal cars
2) Crew chiefs telling drivers to deliberately damage cars at the end of races "just in case"
3) Drivers deliberately wrecking other cars... how long before THAT kill's someone?

The fact that NASCAR management doesn't jump on this and do something about it says to me that the whole series is corrupt and is more interested in making money and destroying other forms of motorsport in the U.S. than actually racing.

Having raced internationally I can understand the pressures and the red-mist that can cloud judgement, but this is a lethal weapon as has been amply demonstrated in the these last weeks and for any driver to behave as Busch has done is simply unforgivable.

He should never be licensed to compete again. FULL STOP!

Those drivers with talent and integrity are excellent role models. NASCAR needs to enforce the rules and impose stiff penalties for the antics of drivers, crew chiefs, and owners. $50,000...really?? That means nothing to Kyle, but kicking him out for the season does. Come on NASCAR get some guts and do your job to keep the good guys safe. This is nothing but ROAD RAGE at speeds exceeding 200 mph!! This is an exciting sport, don't let EGO's and attitudes destroy what we love! True: Rubbin' is racin' but this is extreme!
