And everyone thought it was Teresa and DEI that was keeping Jr. from winning. Once they make Tony Jr. the next sacrificial lamb, who's going to be left to blame??? OH GOD! NOT JR!!!!! Anxiously waiting for the next spin the nation will put on this.

Oh, Heaven forbid, Joonyer is growing "TESTY", at least that means he is growing in something. Joonyer has not grown as a driver in the past five years. Perhaps "Testy Joonyer" can get his bankie and go and pout. Joonyer is comfortable being Testy, Joonyer is comfortable being #3 at HMS, Joonyer is comfortable having Tony Jr. as his scapegoat, Joonyer is seldom comfortable in the winners circle.

READ THE ARTICLE!!!

Junior is testy about the criticism that his team, and his chief, are getting. He knows that he is the one that is not producing and he has been listening to Rick, Jeff and Jimmy about what needs to be done.

Same spin as always. We'd root for June bug even if he was having a hard time qualifying in the Busch, oops, Nationwide, oops, Camping World series. Lil' Shrubbie could win 'King of the World' and bow to none but hisself and he would still be that nasty stuff that sticks to the bottom of your shoe.

Jr knows his capabilities. He already told us he just likes to go racing and have his cousin as his crew chief. They are buddies. Jr nation is the only ones obsessed with Jr becoming the next Dale Sr.
