Kyle pulling triple duty this weekend – not unexpected for a Vegas native. Nevertheless, Kyle being in either the Xfinity or truck race, much less both, is like sending out a Bat-signal to all of his haters – expect a bunch of anti-Kyle, as well as anti-cup driver, posts after the races this weekend, especially if Kyle should do well in either of the lower series.
