No doubt Busch has talent and lots of it ... Someone needs to sit him down and tell him where his "lucrative contract" gets its money from ... sponsors and fans, the way he treated Jerry Punch was a disgrace.

Roger Penske is no fool and i bet he was under pressure from sponsors to get rid of this guy. -- i hope he learns that he is not better than anyone else, and his behaviour is one of a spoilt brat rather than a race car driver -- take a leaf out of Marco's Ambrose's or Mark Martin's book on how to treat sponsors and fans Kurt.

An example of typical american bull sh...A past champion and his brother the greatest natural talent of the day and the most important thing is supposed to be the feelings of a media hack, the feelings of a marketing department and the image of a race team? If that means leaving a modern day A.J. Foyt, Buck Baker or Lee Petty out of a car then let the P.C. Police drive the sons of britches and see how the grandstands look then. Your half way there now don't you know.
