Ha Ha Ha He He He I can't stop laughing.

This guy might never win another race. He is looking a lot more like the other loser Kyle Petty looked before he vanished from NASCAR.

You heard it here first folks. Junior will never win a championship at this level. Never!

Oh there is no doubt that he will never win a cup championship. There are far to many good drivers. I don't think it really bothers him either. He has already said that he just has fun going to the track and hanging out with his cousin.

The few die hard fans of Jr.(Actually fans of media personalities) have just about run out of excuses and hope for A win, much less a championship. He had the fire and drive to win when he wanted to get his dads attention and impress him. He really doesn't care anymore. And why should be? Pulling in 12 million a year and not winning seems to work for him. He'll get his media hit for the next 2 months by driving the #3 at Daytona and then he'll fade back into the woodwork.

How humiliating it must be for his fans who jump out of their seats cheering when he finally gets to the front and then have to sit on their hands when he loses the lead and fades in the distance for the rest of the race.

why should he care? he's just there to collect a paycheck. i can't believe Hendrick and his sponsors is actually letting him get away with his lack of commitment

He'll start caring when his lack of commitment starts to eat into those paychecks. He can't expect to maintain sponsorships and/or endorsement deals forever if he's not performing in the sport. Sponsorships/endorsements want to be associated with a winner or someone who excels in their profession in order to promote the product they are trying to sell. The message is: if you use this product, you will be a winner like (fill in the blank). Jr can only expect to cash in on that positive image for so long before the fact that he's actually more of a loser then a winner starts to get in the way of his ability to portray a positive image for product promotion.

It's already obvious that every time they mention Junior they have to remind everybody that he's "NASCAR's Most Popular Driver" because they realize that his image as a NASCAR star is really starting to slip. His fan base has slipped considerably too. It's really getting to be a sad joke how the TV announcers hype him up before every race then midway thru they end up eating their words about how great he is, because once again he leaves the fans nothing to cheer about.

How times are changing.

A month ago I posted a comment on another Junior story similar to what I said in the first post here.

I was roundly berated by a slew of poor, deluded Junior fans when I made that post. Where are all his supporters now?

Let's see, where did he finish last week? Oh yeah, he finished 32nd. From there he most likely couldn't even see that punk Kyle Busch crossing the finish line first.

Everyone seems to think Kasey Kayne is destined for Mark Martin's ride at Hendrick. Maybe it's Junior who gets the boot come season end. That would serve this loser right.

Then he can beg his stepmother for a ride. She can most likely afford to sponser an ARCA car for him.

Joonyer will NEVER win a cup championship...NEVER. He MIGHT win a race in the next few years. All the jooonyer fans hurt their arms at 'Dega throwing their beer cans at the winner every race and now their feelings are hurt that his chase hopes just went down the toilet like a big stinky turd AGAIN. I have something to say about the most overrated driver in history... wooo hooo go joooonyer

Jr is more like his mentor Mikey Waltrip. I just hope Jr has the dignity to fade away and not become the clown Mikey is.

The Jr Nation curse lives, nobody can deny that. It makes for a good story too - that the such a curse can be so persistent, that the only way he'd win a race is with mother nature's help. If I was him, I'd go looking for a good psychic, a white witch, tarot reader, or voodoo priestess - anyone who might have the power to lift a curse...

Or wait, yeah - it could be that he just hasn't got the talent to drive well enough for his crew chief to have a snowball's chance in hell for a lucky win. I mean, lets look at it realistically: He'd have to either outrun the field after a strategy call for a LOT of laps, cuzz he'd probably get eaten alive after a late caution or GWC situation. OR hope that a big wreck damages every single top 20 car.

Not necessarily true. Jr is a known cheapskate who many joke still has the 1st dollor he ever earned. His racing money is well invested into severel off track buisnesses. At this point its just money making money for jr. He doesnt need to race, he doesnt need to win. When there is no incentive anymore, people lose focus. Thats what happened.

The daytona deal has nothing to do with SR. Its a ruse to get all the bafoons out there to buy diecast cars and t-shirts for the one off deal.

I have never seen a message on here where he
don't pay his bills. The great Kyle Busch has a lien against him
for not paying up. Maybe he is holding on and being the cheapskate.
