Speedlinking: NASCAR’s “Boy’s Have at it” plays a role in Kyle Busch vs. David Reutimann: The fans, media and Inside NASCAR weighs in.

Everyone from NASCAR, the NASCAR community, Inside NASCAR on Showtime, media members, and the NASCAR fans themselves all seem to have an opinion on the Kyle Busch vs. David Reutimann battle at Kansas Speedway. So did Kyle Busch deserve payback from David Reutimann at Kansas?

The results, namely what I have read on Twitter, Facebook, blogs, forums and what not all seem to be mostly siding with David Reutimann. Some believe that Kyle Busch deserved everything that he got from Reutimann. While others believe that Reutimann completely over reacted to the situation and shouldn’t have done anything.

So here is a few articles on what I have read and be sure to read some of the comments in some of the articles, they really tell an interesting story.
