Oh lord. I'm talking about the coverage and the TV show only. Kyles motivation is entirely different. He did exactly what he should in those conditions, his job isn't to entertain, it is to finish as far forward as possible. His ONLY chance was to get out as far as he could and hope for another shower or for the track to take longer to dry. Either way he had to go as fast as he could as long as he could, staying with the others would have done nothing at all for his tires or his end result.
