Twenty two wins in the top three NASCAR touring series? At one point, fairly deep into the season he led - I think – all three championship point standings. Had the Sprint Cup Series championship been determined in the pre-Chase to the Cup way of doing such, it’s unlikely anyone would have caught him for the Cup.
Kyle faded in the Chase. But he was the most spectacular driver in NASCAR during 2008. Watch out Shrub haters, Kyle’s coming.
