Jr wouldn't jump off a bridge, but a good part of the Nation might. KB isn't my favorite driver, but I'll vote for him every day. I think it's my civic duty.

Why bother voting. Jr will win anything that fans vote on. He is almost in the lead for the pit crew challenge even though he has not won a race or been near the front where the pit crew really makes a difference.

If Jr.'s fans care enough to vote for him enough for him to win the award, then he deserves it. If you think he doesn't deserve it then you should be voting every day for someone you like. It's that simple. The award isn't based on how many races the driver has won or where he is in the chase, it's about who the fans like the most. His fans can't vote any more than his critics can so if he wins again, it just means he still is more popular than the other drivers.

winning the MPD award is the greatest accomplishment of mankind according to Jr Nation. it seems they would rather see him hold up the MPD award than the Sprint Cup trophy

if his pit crew wins the AT@T Fastest Pit Crew Award, they will probably dance in the streets for a month

Perhaps the fact that the MPD voting is sponsored by "Hamburger Helper" is why Junior wins. His trailer park fans are likely regular visitors to the site. They can vote for Junior while they surf the site looking for new and exciting ways to prepare their Hamburger Helper for dinner.

I agree completely. No one ever said you had to be winning to be popular or that winning would necessarily make you popular. Although, winning does increase a fan base to some degree. Let's face it, people want to root for a winner, so you'll always have those people who will latch on just because of that.

Sooooo.....what you're saying is that Junior doesn't want to win races and a Sprint Cup championship? Because he could do it if he just "puts his mind to it."
