I nearly cried when I saw this; Bobby was the 1999 Cup Champ. I always thought he would do better with another team/maybe someone will pick him up.

I agree with you Angel, but Bobby was 2000 Cup champ, not 1999. fedup, you are an idiot! Bobby should've never signed with the Petty's the first time, let alone the second! He's partly to blame for resigning with them, but the Petty's should be ashamed of themselves for trying to persuade people that they could be what they once were. I knew ever since Adam died, who i would've loved to seen race, i knew it was a matter of time before Cheerios wised up and realized that to compete with Kellogg's, they needed to leave a failing cause, and it's ashame Bobby didnt go with them and that it took them both that long, and even when Todd Parrott left, i mean if it was obvious that he didnt even give them one season, why the hell did Bobby give them three and Cheerios gave them ten?
Kyle ruined Petty Enterprises by running it into the ground and focusing on everything else which Victory Junction is a great cause, but Kyle shouldnt have stayed in the 45 and embarassed himself for all these years and im going to be sick if i hear Kyle say one more time that he only stayed in the car just for attention to his charity cause that is not the reason to be behind the wheel, if you arent competitive anymore, then you need to get out, and that goes for alot out there. I love Bill Elliott and Bobby Labonte and yes their equipment stinks, but they also are past champions, not a guy who only got a ride cause of his name and his daddy's company and in almost thirty years, has only eight wins and hasnt won a race in thirteen years, it's really a joke and Richard is a moron for putting Kyle in charge and keeping him behind the wheel for this long!

It's cool, i apologize if i come off as a know it all, i just Nascar history is a good area of mine. i will say though that about 1980 thru the present is my best, not to keen on before that, just a bit here and there. Ive been a fan since the 80's on and off, but i didnt really start keeping up with it until about 2002. Dale Jr fan since but was a big Bill Elliott fan when i watched as a kid and was a Dale Earnhardt fan in the 90's until his death. But i like i said, i agree with your point on Bobby and the Petty's.

Was I talking to you? I don't think so... In fact I know I wasn't. Who do you think you are butting into someone else business.. Oh that's right, you're Lisa and you don't have anything else to do but to put your fat ass into everyone else business..

On in YOUR own words WHY DON'T YOU MIND YOUR OWN DAMN BUSINESS.

Joanie... no offense.. I was just curious why you changed your name again.

I'm not an idiot.. I agree with you.. but since he did sign back up out of loyalty to the petty's they shouldn't have let him go so easily. I was hoping at the beginning of this race year that he would have gone with the other team that was trying to get him over but he decided to stay. Wrong move like you said but what they did to him and the way they did it wasn't right. Giving him equipment that couldn't match the other cars, 24,48, 9... and he did the best he could with the equipment he was given. Terry surprised me by driving those 6 races to try to keep the 45 up in points. That was a waste of time for him too. Bobby had the choice of switching and going with cherrios but he didn't do that either.. That is why I was saying that loyalty meant nothing to the Petty's. Kyle I never had any use for.. he should have been ousted a long time ago.

No offence taken.

Just crossing fingers that Bobby gets a car to drive. It would be a sad nascar day if he can't start the 09 season with everyone

I apologize, i read so much for loyalty i thought you were talking about Bobby not being loyal. I read earlier in the year alot of people taking up for the Petty's when Bobby re-upped with them and i was saying that he should've left and considered his career more when he made his decision. He should be at RCR starting next year, i think he was the top candidate and RCR could've done for Bobby what they did for Jeff Burton. Again, im sorry i misread.

Why so rude? I just asked a question. Is there something wrong with that? Last I looked this wasn't Mindy's thread. I don't go on that thread. Sorry to offend you.

Maybe you should ask Lisa? She's the one that attacks people for asking a simple question. And a question that didn't even involve her.

Maybe you shouldn't accuse people of being someone else.
