So, Is Kurt Busch Living the Dream?

It's tempting to say you can't make this stuff up.

But hell, stuff like this gets made up every day.

In Hollywood.

The twist with Kurt Busch is it's happening in a courtroom. That's not an advisable place to make stuff up. And therein lies the question: Is he?

Whoa! Who knew?

These are clearly dangerous times for unsuspecting NASCAR drivers. Even though they put their life on the line every weekend, that's nothing compared to what's really happening out there.

Damn! Not that long ago, it seemed like the Busch-Driscoll hookup was a match made in heaven:

This all stems from a domestic abuse allegation. Here's the he said/she said:

After an exchange between the two in the motor home, Driscoll alleged Busch slammed her head against the wall three times, injuring the back of her head and her neck.

Busch contended that he never slammed her head, never grabbed her by the throat or pushed her head against the wall. Instead, he says he cupped her face and told her to leave.

Of course, with Busch, everything about hitting walls and the damage done is a relative thing:

Could it be that keeping the terrible secret that his squeeze was a trained killer was gettting to be too much for him? Did Busch snap?

According to the Associated Press, here's what Busch said when his attorney wondered why he still believes Driscoll is a hired killer:

Everybody on the outside can tell me I'm crazy, but I lived on the inside and saw it firsthand.

Stay tuned. As in, don't touch that dial. Can't wait to see what's on next.

Then again, maybe Busch shouldn't take stuff so literally. Metaphor is reality, too.
