I'm still trying to figure out why this is a Busch VS Reddick thing. Reddick accepted a job offer from someone who REALLY wanted him while RC was apparently asleep at the wheel. RC rebounds with a potentially BRILLIANT move hiring a pissed off, chip on his shoulder superstar that nobody else wanted for obvious and not so obvious reasons. About the only way you can make this a legitimate X VS Y thing is if you want to make the case that Denny should have hired Kyle instead of Tyler. Somehow, I don't think that EVER was an option. RC looks brilliant right now, but it was all driven by NOBODY else wanting Kyle, so he basically fell into RC's lap by default. RC basically found a bag of cash laying on his front lawn, it's not like he REALLY fired Tyler to hire Kyle, it just ended up that way. 23XI got the guy they WANTED, and RCR got the guy they NEEDED, looks like a win-win to me. Kyle is a first ballot Hall of Famer, and Tyler has won wherever he has been, so I feel it's just a matter of time before he wins at 23XI. Is Tyler as good as Kyle? I would say definitely not, but neither are 95% of the other drivings out there, so why is that a knock on Reddick?
