Kyle Busch was sent packing because of his attitude problem that makes him less marketable than other drivers and a PR nightmare, I agree there is more money in the name Elliott and there is no doubt that Chase will be there eventually. All I am saying is that with Gordon in the twilight of his career and Kasey having just entered his prime I think Hendrick will try to keep them both. Rick made it clear when Kasey was signed that he was part of the long term plans of HMS.

Today was another example of why Jr. came to HMS. He ran in the top five all day and kicked ass when time to go came. Does he have a chance to win the championship? You bet your goat smelling ass he does. You Jr. hating pukes better hope he doesn't because if he does, JR. NATION is going to be on your ass like ugly on your wife. And you know how bad that is.

HMS is in the catbird seat right now with the exception of Kahne and even he isn't out of it yet. Jr. and Jeff have more momentum than they have had in years. They are driving away from the other chase contenders and I expect both to win another race before the chase starts.

I still want to know why Steve Letarte bailing on old Jr; maybe he doesn't want to be part of the big fixer anymore.
I think this has already been established, He's going to the booth. When in turn means more time at home with the family....

Wang, Wang, Wang, our little make-believe Chinese friend! What rest area are you parked in tonight entertaining yourself trying to remember which letters to move around so you'll sound Chinese? Why don't you get yourself a job at Walmart so you can stay at home with Honey Bo Bo's momma and the rest of the piglets? You can do it man, just hold your nose and jump on in there. Of course, I'm thinking you're a fatass yourself dressed in some sloopy-ass sweat pants and three days over due a bath so that wart hog wife of yours might want you to stay on the road so she doesn't have to sleep with you.
