Will Kyle ever learn??

Kyle Busch's No. 18 team has been fined for an improperly attached weight. Crew chief Dave Rogers has been fined $25,000 and placed on probation until October 3. Car chief Wesley Sherrill will also be put on probation until that date.

One would think after what he and his brother have gone through and lost in the past year that Kyle would make sure everything is legal on his car.

Kyle seems to have maybe controlled his mouth and attitude and now they get caught cheating.

I know it's a minor deal but can he afford to get caught cheating? Sponsors are going to run away from Kyle all the more.

This kid could be gone soon as he simply does not learn.

I agree Sifty but, Kyle cannot afford any other issues with his past issues.

If a solid team has a incident like this, really no big deal at all but for a driver that has alot of past issues, I cannot believe this is anything but bad for that team.

All I was trying to say is that it will be harder to garner sponsors for Kyle when he has all the issue he and his team has. As a sponsor, I highly doubt that a sponsor wants to see a sponsored driver act like Kyle has in the past ands then also have rule infractions.

Yes, they get alot of press for it but highly doubt again that it is the type of press the sponsors are looking for or want to associate thier name with.

Yes, JJ has had rules issues along with numerous others but have they all gotten all the bad press for the way he acts?

Dave Rogers is one of the biggest cheaters in NASCAR. Repeat offender every bit as bad as Knauss. Remember the magnets under the accelarators? That was him. He's been suspended for long periods before. He obviously hasn't learned and I really doubt Kyle had no knowledge of them pushing the boundaries. Don't imagine he knew the exact details though...

Looks like big brother got a little step up in ride. Hope they sell some more furniture in Colorado to pay for the extra cars that he will inevitably tear up. Hopefully Sr. can keep his mouth shut. It is fun to watch him race.....

Smith out of the #78 after Talladega? UPDATE: SPEED's Race Hub reported Wednesday evening that Regan Smith's final race of the season in the Furniture Row Racing #78 would be at Talladega. Kurt Busch is expected to drive the car the remainder of the season.(9-26-2012)

UPDATE: Kurt Busch hopes to get a head start on the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup season by jumping in the #78 Furniture Row Chevy early. The next chapter of the Busch saga could begin as early as in two weeks at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Aligning with the team before the end of the season would offer Busch an opportunity to acclimate to the group and its systems for the final six races of the season. "He's going to be out after Talladega," said Phoenix Racing team owner James Finch, for whom Busch currently drives. "We're going to go down there and try to win that race. We were up front for most of the spring race, and Brad (Keselowski) dumped us with three or four to go. We'll be fine at Talladega." So who would fill the Phoenix Racing seat currently occupied by Busch? Since Finch has operated for most of 2012 sans sponsorship, he's looking at candidates "who have the potential" to bring financial support to the team for the final six race and possibly next year. Finch has spoken to representation for AJ Allmendinger, who has been sidelined since July 7, when he was suspended for testing positive for amphetamine the week before at Kentucky Speedway. Regan Smith, who will be displaced in the #78 Chevy by Busch, could be part of an easy swap with the #51 Phoenix team. Finch isn't limited to considering Sprint Cup candidates. He also has been approached by the camps of Nationwide Series drivers James Buescher and Justin Allgaier.(Fox Sports)(9-27-2012)
