Poor Lance. The newest scapegoat for the nation. Find someone to teach him how to drive the car AND to give useful feedback and you might have a chance.

Junior didn't build anything. If anything he Inherited it. He can't have built a track that was being raced before he was ever in a cup ride.

Dale Sr should be credited and nobody else.

How did I know somebody would think of taking it literally?

It's stupid to think somebody who came into racing WAY after the person who's also credited for building it could have participated in it being built so the figure of speech doesn't make sense with it also giving credit to Jr.

In other words, if its the house they both built, then they should have been building it together at the same time, not one after another.

Don't be an idiot!! If you're gonna hope for 'anybody by Johnson', do it on a track he normally does well at!! The odds of him winning at Tally when he's playing it so safe are almost non-existent! LOL

Alpinedigital: Jr. has to take some credit for everything Dale created, didn't ya know? Jr. rented a room in the house Dale built for a couple years. That's it.

Congrats to Jaime McMurray! Anyone but Hendricks! Glad to see someone win that doesn't get a win very often. They're more appreciative to be in VL.

sure okay. grant dale all the undue rewards he never earned. I know Jr won a bunch there but the plate races are less difficult for somebody who was so respected because of his name... and now that he's proving he's not a fantastic driver, he's getting a lot less help out there, and justifiably so.

He got credit from his Father's name but it won't carry him through his whole career. Now as so many are comfortable with dumping him off the side of the draft, he won't be winning any more there. I find it incredible too - the only points race he won was because of weather. LOL He's no better than little Joey Logano in that respect lol

^You mean kind of how they dumped your boy Jimmie out today??? I thought it was kind of funny how with ten to go he was trying to get up through the field and no one would work with him. If all those cars hadn't of pitted, he would have been lucky to get a top fifteen today. Guess the fans aren't the only ones tired of him.

And when Junior would get dropped to the back, he would be back up there in a couple laps. Plenty of people danced with him today. He just needs to find the right partner late in the game.

So? Jr won at Michigan because he earned it. He is not his father, I don't know why you haters are so obsessed with him being his father

Same with Dale Sr. Talladega was built and opened six years befor Sr. took his first Cup race in 75. What Talladega is, is the track that sealed the championship for Jimmie this year. He layed around the back all day and saved the car till the last 10 laps and not he has a close to 200 point lead.

You're the stupidest POS on here. I am not a hater I just tell it like it is. Only a sorry b1tch that can't accept the truth like you will try to call me on it. Dale didn't EARN a win, it was a fluke, a stroke of luck. And how many wins has he had in the past 5 years?? FLUKE boy.

And You are the nastiest Jimmie fan I have come across on here. Jr's win wasn't a fluke, He stayed out and gambled.

He didn't win that, it was a call from his crew chief that won it FOR him.
