Kyle Busch revealed to Steven Colbert that he wishes his car could turn into a robot.
Who knew that you could have dreams and aspirations as a NASCAR racecar driver above and beyond just winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Kyle Bush popped into The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and professed that he still had one dream left on his bucket list, a dream that’s hard to believe. Took a look at that video below.
"My racecar is pretty sweet. But sometimes, I wish it was one of those transformers all the switches and buttons in there and not one turns it into a robot. My car CAN shoot out a net, but it’s not even a big net, what a rip-off."

We admit, the video itself is pretty off the wall and out of left field but what else did we honestly expect from Steven Colbert. In a way, Kyle Busch is sort of right. Compared to other race car series’s out there, NASCAR technically has one of the simplest racecars out there in terms of technological developments. Although their are certain limitation to the shape and aerodynamics of the car, little has changed when compared to the likes of Indy Car or Formula 1.
We like the way Car and Driver described the NASCAR “Car of Tomorrow” when it first came out.
"It’s like racing-car development stopped in the 1960s. Still, you can’t argue with a 5.9-liter engine that spins to 9500 rpm and makes close to 900 horsepower."
Earlier this weekend, Kyle Busche clinched the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship with a win at the Ford Ecoboost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. I guess this is the start of his celebratory tour.
