Kyle Busch eliminated from the playoffs

Let us talk NASCAR for a moment.

Kyle Busch has officially been eliminated from the playoffs, and the entire Rowdy Nation is super sad about that. I promise you; they are sad. And probably a little frustrated. I have heard rumblings from a lot of KB fans, about how disappointed they are in Adam this season, as if everything is his fault. I get it. In NASCAR, when things go wrong, the crew chief does get blamed, but let’s be real, even Toyota said they take the blame.

You might ask then, ‘Why does Denny have so many wins then? He’s in a Toyota, too.
Well, I don’t have an answer to that, other than, it’s just pure dumb luck. How many races was the 18 car wrecked by another driver this season? Almost every race. That adds to it.

Others want to blame the lack of practice and qualifying. Do you buy that? I do. And I do not. Kyle is an exceptional racecar driver. He can see and feel things inside that car that most people would miss or not even notice at all. Because of that reason alone, I believe that he would be able to pinpoint those exact adjustments and changes that need to be made, regardless of when it happens - during practice or the regular race - to get him those wins he’s used to getting. BUT that is not happening. So, the lack of practice is not the problem.

So, what is the problem? What is the real reason our defending champion has not even won one single race this season?

My theory is his home life. If you follow him or his wife on any social media, you know all the drama that goes on every day. She posts about it ALL. THE. TIME. Maybe all the infertility struggles they are going through, and the pressure she is putting on them to have another child, is interfering with his job. That is what I see. I do not think that was her intention, but it is how I perceive it.

I don’t have the answers, obviously, but I assure you, if I could get Kyle alone in a room, without cameras, I would want to get down to the bottom of what is happening in KBville. It seems like a very lonely place right now, and maybe a little conversation from a random car chick, might help.

There are only four races left, and since Kyle is not in the playoffs, I feel he will try to stay out of the way. However, I do not, by any means, think he will just lay down and allow a playoff driver to beat him if he has a shot at winning.
