New Kyle. Old Kyle. Brash Kyle. Blue Kyle. There are enough descriptions of Kyle Busch’s off-track temperament these past few years to write a Dr. Seuss book.

 

But it’s the next adjective we attach to his name that could determine whether that book becomes a best seller.

It’s been a monstrous news week in sports, almost none of it about what happens on the field. A national anthem protest that started with the NFL enveloped virtually every sport after President Trump brought it into the political conversation.

More than two thirds (110 of the scheduled 160 laps) into the Brickyard 400, one of NASCAR's races was set to be little more than a snoozer. Kyle Busch had dominated the event, preventing any on-track passes for the lead while the current Cup Series aero package created single-file racing almost instantaneously.

NASCAR may have been born in Daytona Beach, the result of a smoke-filled hotel in December 1947 but North Carolina is now its grown-up home base. Ninety percent of Cup Series teams make their home there, most with race shops just outside the Charlotte city limits.

Atlanta: Kahne's Chase bid, Stewart's NASCAR return and Danica's career night

Through the Gears: Four things we learned at Atlanta Motor Speedway
Post-race reaction from the Oral-B USA 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, where Kasey Kahne punched his ticket into NASCAR's Chase for the Sprint Cup.

NASCAR’s new Chase format was designed to make the regular season finale a “can’t miss” on anyone’s calendar. With 16 postseason slots available, chances are at least one would be available at Richmond, and with any driver inside the top 30 Chase eligible under the rules, one upset victory is all it would take to shuffle up the final drivers in the field.

Gordon, Hendrick remain atop NASCAR charts with Brickyard win

Through the Gears: Four things we learned at Indianapolis
Post-race reaction from Jeff Gordon's win in NASCAR's Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Speeding past the sport’s best drivers 20  years ago, Jeff Gordon won the inaugural Brickyard 400 en route to starting his own legacy. Much has been made of the win’s impact — his second of 90 Cup victories, — even though it was hardly surprising at the time. After all, Gordon was blooming in his second season and the Indiana native was expected to morph into one of the sport’s all-time best.

Jeff Gordon returns to NASCAR Victory Lane in Martinsville

Through the Gears: Four things we learned at Martinsville Speedway
Four things we learned following Jeff Gordon's win in NASCAR's Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

There was a time when Jeff Gordon couldn’t walk from his car into the local supermarket without getting booed. In fact, I’m surprised there wasn’t a Matt Schaub-like incident, this season’s quarterback scapegoat from the NFL’s Houston Texans who was threatened by hooligans at his home. Such was life for NASCAR’s dominant driver of the 1990s, his metro, New York-style life and team a stark contrast from main rival, good ol’ boy Intimidator Dale Earnhardt.
