I wouldn't say that. A win is a win, points or not. and he did get a cool trophy ;)

So you're saying that a bud shootout win is equal to, in importance, as a race at Dover?

I bet if you asked the drivers they would tell you which race they would rather win and it's not the shootout.

Why do you have to be such a spoil sport and downplay Jr's wins? If it was GB who won you would be singing his praises. Talk about a double standard

Are you sure about that?

GB has won two poles. Did I brag about those?

GB won the burn out event. Did I brag about those?

No, why? Because in the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter.

Yes, winning a pole matters for that race, but after that it's as important as winning the bud shootout.

Maybe it was important for Jr to win those first two races because of the pressure on him to do well at Hendrick.

Kyle and Joey will win a cup before Jr sees victory lane in a points paying event.

For 3 weeks straight Johnny Benson picked Jr to win. LOL. This week he went with Kyle.

I could go the rest of Jrs career without him getting another win.

Like I said, Jr will win, Just gotta keep the faith. and I hope Jr does win so you will shut up. Glad to know there are a few GOOD Kyle fans out there and you're not one of them.

The writer of this article really put things in perspective. There is one hellava lot of current and past drivers in NASCAR that can't touch Jr.'s stats. Jim gets upset about Jr. because Jim actually is a closet Jr. fan but since Jr. is a real winner and Jim is a real loser he can't bring himself to admit it. If you'll notice old Jim doesn't ever talk about another driver as if he was their fan and he's always around where a discussion about Jr. is. Hmm, I wonder what else is in old Jim's closet.

Jr would need to win every race for the rest of the year and take the cup to justify his popularity, when he does that, get back to me.

If you don't want to hear about him, then I'd guess you better get away from NASCAR altogether, cause like it or not, he's still popular at the end of the day.

FYI smart one, This thread is linked in different forums. I'm posting from Jr's forum. Like I said above, If you don't want to hear about Jr, change the damn channel. Jr is famous because he is a classy, respectful young man.
