There have been a few significant races in NASCAR's history that marked a new era; a turning of the page; a passing from dominance by one generation of drivers to another. The victory of Darrell Waltrip over Richard Petty in the 1979 Rebel 500 at Darlington was one. Petty had been the King for years, but Waltrip showed that he was his match in that race. Jeff Gordon's win in the 1997 Daytona 500 was another. To win, he passed Dale Earnhardt who subsequently crashed and rolled his car. Gordon showed that he was more than a match for Earnhardt that day and that he was not intimidated. I think Saturday's victory by Kyle Busch was such a page turner. Jeff Gordon has been the most consistent winner and the most dreaded threat on the restrictor plate tracks since he beat Earnhardt at Daytona. On Saturday, he met his match in Kyle Busch. Gordon had the lead with under 10 laps remaining. I have never seen anyone pass Gordon for the lead in the last 10 laps of a restrictor plate race. But Gordon messed up and went high when he should have gone low giving Busch the lead. On top of that, Gordon got spun out with two laps to go while trying to figure out a way back around Busch. These compounded mistakes by Gordon in the closing laps are completely uncharacteristic of him. Gordon has been the greatest driver of his generation. A new generation is ascending and Kyle Busch is leading the way.
