<quoted text> dude you are as much of a froot as vickers fan, JR, is everything kyle bush wants to be, and were do you get off comparing Dale JR, and carl edwards to a moron like kyle bush.The true stars of nascar dont have to atack other drivers like he did to stephen wallace last year, Kyle bush screwed up and tried to put the blame on someone else. Karma is a bitch and eventualy kyle bush will eat crow.
Mr. Assmanflo, for your edification your supposed moron, Kyle Busche had 8 wins in cup racing last year and 21 between the three top divisions of NASCAR. Kyle is respected by all the drivers in the garage, note, I did not say liked by all, just respected for his driving ability and ability to drive a car that is too lose for most other drivers to handle. Joonyer, on the other hand, is a second tier driver with a lot of fans, just think of it this way Assmanflo, in one year Kyle Busche had almost half as many wins as Joonyer has had in 11 years. This is the make or break year for Joonyer, if he does not do it this year he will never do it. My money is on never doing it.

You are right. Get in his way, he'd put you into the wall. That's what made him the best driver in nascar history.
By the way. My brother owns a 92 SC tbird. Supercharged V6, 3.8L. 5 Spd. I bypassed the RPM limiter and he put a smaller pulley on the blower.

This may hurt since 3 he has and will never mash the gas. And i'm not a big fan of the new nascar would be great to watch them race instead of watching teams race. I know old school BUT that's when rubbing was raceing

You can't shut up all of us Earnhardt fans. We will forever love our Earnhardts. Sr. will forever be a legend and Jr. will make his mark too.
the only way JR. will leave a mark, is if he pisses in the snow!

People just want jr to be sr and it aint gonna happen. There both just(were) regular drivers. I think that the kid from cambridge Wi has a shot at getting the championship again. Lets hope jimmies johnson dont win again. go kenseth

Well, take a look at the talant out there. Drivers start as carters,have plenty of backing and are trained in the fine art of driving. Comparing them is just fine but what does it prove? Money talks BS walks..JR has a organization,Gordon has a organization and so forth...All hipe...JR is a pure driver,not dangerous, not overly agressive but overall a fine driver as well as many in the cup races. What all should be looking out for is the media spoiling racing by twisting facts to wash up a driver tosell press...Let them race the best will be the on top at the end of the year..no mistakes no BS..just good racing.......

Hey mike whats the difference between Chev and Toys? Would you believe that these frames are so closely built you can not tell them apart? Power plants are a truely different...Money is in the handling packages, the spings and shocks in the small weight details..Proof.. they take last years cars and run them up front as back up cars?? The top teams spend big money on the engineering of balancing the car to preform in an everchanging enviorment. Whats in a name?

That's right. He got what he had comin. I still say ditch the restrictor plate and let em duke it out, winner takes all. Nobody else gets nuthin.
I'm tired of watching them drive. I want to see them race!
