The Future Of NASCAR:
NASCAR changed the rules after that race, raising the minimum age to 18 for the top three touring series. This forced Kyle to return to his roots, bide his time and polish his skills. He was picked up by Hendrick Motorsports in 2003 and quickly moved up through the racing ranks. With two wins and a host of impressive runs Kyle won the Sprint Cup Raybestos Rookie of the Year honors in 2005.
Kyle is one of those drivers that is "special." Just watching him work in a race car is a beautiful thing. There is no doubt in my mind that Kyle will be a future Sprint Cup Champion.
Kyle is the younger brother of 2004 Sprint Cup series Champion Kurt Busch.
