Liar, Liar Pants on Fire...or Hendrick and Kyle Busch

Kyle Bush is nothing if not frank. Asked if he was aware that he had been ousted at Rick Hendrick Racing (RHR), he said that he only became aware after the big press conference hooha about Dale Junior coming over to RHR.

“Well, you know, this is all brand new,” said Busch. “I hadn’t talked or discussed or done anything with any other team. There had been a rumor that flew around that I was unhappy at Hendrick Motorsports, which was untrue. I was just frustrated with the way things were going, that I wasn’ able to get results. We had been running good and been fast everywhere, but we just had some bad luck and were crashing, and whatever. “That rumor started, and then after that rumor, it was that I was getting offers from other teams, which, I had never talked to anybody.” Busch said he hadn’t been given any indication that he wouldn’t be back at Hendrick until Monday."

Rick Hendrick can't even lie well....

June 13 -- A Day That Will Live in Infamy

Dale Jr. driving for Rick Hendrick, the convicted felon. Who said there was 'no room at the inn' 4 weeks ago. Convicted felon, convicted liar. Way to go, Jr. Someone has pulled the wool over your eyes, that's for sure. Does Jr. really think he'll get the equipment Gordon and Johnson get?
Does Jr. really think his fans will follow en masse? Oh, the newer ones who have no idea about the history of the sport, nor the history of Rick Hendrick will. Those of us who've been around for 20 or 30 years or so have a lot more knowledge about the way that outfit got started and operates. Maybe Jimmy Spencer had more insight about Kelley Elledge than we gave him credit for. Obviously she is not in tune with the fans and the timbre of the sport.

What a colossal shame. Knowing Dale Sr., he is certainly NOT smiling down on this one.

Pocono Caution Flag Thrown at Suspicious Time...

Did anyone else wonder why NASCAR threw the caution when they did at Pocono on Sunday? Just because Ryan Newman was in the process of passing Jeff Gordon when the 'rain' started...Those of us who were at Pocono wondered; after all, they could have easily raced safely back to the start/finish line.

Yet another yellow flag, rain shortened win for the 24. What's that make it now, 25 won that way?
