After Kyle Busch swept the weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway, capturing wins in all three of NASCAR’s national series, that other really fast Kyle — Kyle Larson — tweeted respect for his elder and competitor.

So the question that Kelly Crandall and Kathy Sheldon are exploring on NASCAR.com today: Is Kyle Busch the GOAT?

Sheldon: Greatest at Bristol? Yes, and six wins, the most of any Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver, prove it. This past weekend? Absolutely. All time? We’ll see. If anyone currently active can catch seven wins, I’d say Kyle Busch and Kyle Larson are the best candidates.

Crandall: Larson’s goat emoji was a nice touch and Busch seemed appreciative to hear in his post-race press conference it had been included. But the greatest of all-time in NASCAR is not yet a discussion Busch or Larson is in, although performances like Bristol will certainly help Busch one day in that department. If this was a question of whether or not Busch is the GOAT when it comes to the top three national series, there’s no argument he has set himself apart from the competition. One can only wonder, though, what the sport would be like if Larson ran as many races as Busch does …

Sheldon: Good point, Kelly. I don’t think anyone is as sure a bet in a Camping World Truck Series event or XFINITY Series event as Busch. And he’s helping the sport grow the next generation of drivers, as well, through Kyle Busch Motorsports. Wouldn’t it be great to see Busch in a sprint car so he and Larson could do battle on dirt?

So let’s talk greatest of this season. Both Larson and Busch are in the playoffs, with Busch holding a slight, 2-point edge on Larson in playoff points coming out of Bristol. They’re both chasing Martin Truex Jr., whom I picked back in February to win the title this year. I still like that pick, but Busch seems like a better bet to knock off Truex in the playoffs among the pair of Kyles — a former champ in 2015 and runner-up in 2016 who is peaking at the right time.

Crandall: Just a few weeks ago I felt Larson was as sure a bet to be in the final four as Truex is. Then Busch won Pocono — to go along with his gazillion laps he’s led — and he’s also been knocking off stage wins left and right. Suddenly, the No. 18 team has come alive while the Chip Ganassi Racing No. 42 team is simmering. Good news for Busch, bad news for Larson.

Now, we all know once the playoffs start teams and drivers usually pick it up a notch, but Busch’s team looks really, really good right now. And I imagine they are only going to keep getting better as the weeks go on. However, the possibility of Larson making it to Homestead to battle Busch, as well as Truex and whomever the fourth contender may be, is hard not be excited about.
