The Speed network is planning to air ‘Kurt Busch: The Outlaw’on November 15th to supposedly chronicle the up and down life of the often troubled NASCAR Sprint Cup star. Through a bit of crack investigative journalism, RacingWithRich.com has acquired a list of alternative ideas the network rejected before settling on the Busch feature.
Here is that list:
Clint Bowyer: Weekend at Mikey’s- The story of a wayward weekend spent by noted fun seekers Clint Bowyer and Michael Waltrip. This show would have been Rated R.
Danica Patrick: Standing up for myself- This would have been the story centered around the female driver’s tendency to use the phrase “I have to stand up for myself” after she has taken out another driver for what most would deem a racing incident that had occurred earlier.
Kyle Busch: I may do bad things but at least I’m not Kurt- Here would have been the story of a brother who otherwise might be the black sheep of any family except within the Busch clan where he is considered the good son.
Carl Edwards: Taking a year off- After coming oh-so-close to winning a championship in 2011, Edwards seems to have disappeared in 2012. This show would have chronicled where he actually went during his year off.
Kevin Harvick: I’m with Carl- This sequel to the Carl Edwards showing would have been a look into Harvick’s decision to take the Sprint Cup season off with Edwards and their adventures together.
Jimmie Johnson: The Vanilla Warrior- This show would have looked into how someone can be so successful yet so devoid of personality.
Tony Stewart: Olympic helmet tosser- This show would have told the emotional story of Tony Stewart’s little recognized gold medal effort in this year’s Olympic Games in the often disregarded sport of helmet tossing. Possible spin-offs could have included Matt Kenseth: Olympic helmet catcher.
A.J. Allmendinger: I’m positive- The behind the scenes story of Allmendinger’s attempt at spin(not on the track) after his positive drug test.
Rick Hendrick: They call me Mr. Hendrick- This documentary would have attempted to explain why other team owners are simply known as ‘The Coach’, ‘The Cat in the Hat’ and ‘Richard’ while this owner is referred to as ‘Mr. Hendrick’ or simply ‘Mr. H’ by many media members.
Brian France: Losing an empire- Not much explanation needed here. Possible spin-offs could have included Mike Helton: It’s not lost, it’s in my mustache.
