How can you reprogram that? Please do tell......

So lurker....what will you do with the IRL season over and the CCWS season cut short due to lack of sponsorship dollars?
I would suggest you go seek counseling and maybe improve your people skills.
Who knows...with the few months you have before the start of next years season, you may become a person some may actually like.
It is possible though highly unlikely.

You sound like Don King.

Why would anyone want to stay with a sanctioning body when no representative can even come down to the podium to present the championship trophy? I am referring to Brian Barnhart's shameful conduct yesterday when he didn't appear to present the trophy to Dario. The whole ceremony was a disgrace with Jack Arute trying to cover for him and Dario standing there looking like a lost soul. I guarantee that when someone wins the Nextel Cup the proper Nascar representative will be on hand!

Funny how Danica won rookie of the year because Carpentier (who outscored her in championship points) wasn't considered a rookie due to his experince in champ car, yet somehow RHR is annointed a rookie to allow the IRL to avoid giving the title to Duno.

You have to be drinking Kool-Aid if you want to claim that this is fair. I don't care how bad Milka was, this is a clear double standard.
Just curious

How will Ashley Judd's rambling Post race diatribes be perceived in the world of NASCAR??

Eventually, the IRL is going to fix a race in order to let Danica win her first-ever race. They are probably desperate for the publicity this will bring.

If she had been racing in NASCAR, she would have already have a few "fixed" races. Look at some of Dale, jr's "wins".

If these Dario-to-nascore rumors are true, it's not hard to imagine a snubbing might have been in order. Not that I agree with it...

It wont help with the amount that Ganassi is paying Dario to go to Ganassi racing and Nascar I'm afraid we don't have a prayer.

The loser is back sorry disregard his comments he's bitter about the split and is obsessed with redemption. If the Indycar and Cart split I'm afraid this loser is part of the "big" package and then will still hate the IRL drivers. He also finds kool aid potent for some reason not yet determined.

I'm afraid I burnt the bridge with him and there's no going back. He can't convince me otherwise. I feel for the counseler can you imagine the amount of money and time it'd require to get him to almost normal? I think he may have something personal against Tony George which is pretty wierd.

I like kool-aid and yes I agree with the rookie of the yearb geing RHR so I guess I am drinking Kool aid. By the way Ryan Hunter Raey did 10 times better then Milka hence Rookie of the year. No for real now this time, how can we help you to move on? Maybe you have an issue with kool-aid as well as Tony George, the IRL and the list goes on and on.
Congrats Dario

I can understand you not racing open wheel any more, but PLEAZ don't go to NAPCAR!!! Caviar and pig's feet.

Hunter-Reay is a racer. Much more deserving than most recent ROTYs.

How about Paul Tracy for the 4th AGR seat? Clearly he isn't enjoying Champ Car.

The counselor would commit hari-kari after a few minutes dealing with this pitiful excuse of a person.
I bet he stalks TG and will someday work up the guts to maybe ring TG's doorbell and run.

NAAAAA....the lurker lacks any type of intestinal fortitude. He would have to leave the safety of the nook in his mom's damp, dark basement. We all know that will NEVER happen.
