For all the controversy at the end of last season, NASCAR is definitely better off for having Kyle Busch in the mix!
After pulling off two miraculous saves to keep from wrecking, Kyle managed a last second pass last night to win the Bud Shootout and start the new NASCAR season in style.
The race was great fun, and I'm happy to say that I think pack racing may finally be back! I think we'll have a much better feel for what's to come after Thursday's duels, but the future looks bright. There was some tandem racing at the very end when they weren't concerned about blowing up engines anymore, but to be at the front in the end, drivers are going to have to negotiate the big pack just like in the olden days.
Things should be very exciting over the next week!
