In a top-secret process, they are chosen for their superhuman powers of cogitation and cerebration. They are carefully selected and carefully trained in arcane arts and mystifying sciences, then sent out to conquer the world. And they do.

CONCORD, N.C. -- With his aggressive driving style and cocky manner, Kyle Busch is used to being booed on the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit. But perhaps "Rowdy Busch," as he's called, is starting to earn grudging respect from more of the NASCAR Nation -- especially given his stellar season so far.
