MM never said he would stop racing. The media and blind followers of the media interpreted mark's 'retirement' from full time winston cup to mean NEVER SIT BEHIND THE WHEEL OF ANY FOUR WHEELED VEHICLE UNTIL DEATH.

he always said he would continue racing. he has done what he said he would do.

yes, winston cup.

the 3 will stay retired...
the driver of the 3 died behind the wheel and was a true legend. the driver of the 8 whined and walked away from the 8 car.
HE ABANDONED THE 8. HE SHOULD BE BANNED FROM EVER DRIVING AN 8 CAR AGAIN.

You're ok with MM but not AA? I didn't realize MM is related to the Earnhardts.

You are confusing two entirely different things.
1. Dale is/was a legend who lost his life in the #3.
2. Jr. is a average driver, living and making his career from his last name. He has proved nothing and if he doesn't do something this year, everyone will realize the medocarcy that his name has been hiding.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but that's how it is.
that is a big IF, again he is NOT mediocre and NOT average. He is a good driver and he can become better now that he is with Hendrick. he isnt living off his fathers name. He has made a name for himself. you are just a big ole party pooper

lisa, learn the difference between 'mediocracy' and the intended 'mediocrity'... mediocracy pertains to government, and is VERY uncommonly used.

don't nit pick if you can't pick nits.
