Why the heck do crew chiefs do what they do? Now Martin has to scramble to get back those points. Why would you tamper with the car knowing how NASCAR is with the rules and regulations. Now Martin has to go six weeks w/o his crew chief because Bono and Gary are idiots. They never learn. I bet Martin is furious, I would be.

If I were those kids who signed up as a part of the 'Dale Jr. Division', I'd be pissed. I'm sure most, if not all, signed up because they were a fan of his...now the Navy isn't going to be involved.

I really hope both Dale and the Navy honor there promise to those people.

All I can say is that JRS Queen is fine as wine!!!!
The crew chief's seem so dumb now. I don't understand why they think that they can get a car
pass NASCAR now a days. I really think that they should not deduct points from the drivers but more penalites should go to the crew chiefs. Now unless the drivers now that this is going on then they should receive more all so. I the COT car needs more work to get it perfect, but should be within the guide lines of NASCAR.

I hope the Dale Jr. and the Navy really honor what they have started. If I were to join the navy it would be because of JR's comment to the navy. I really some how hope they change their minds, but I'm sure I'm just dreaming.

I hear ya. I guess the Navy has to advertise like any other business that needs workers but sponsoring a race team seems a little over the top.

This still confusses me. If the Navy was worried about Jr driving for the National Guard why would they start the Dale Jr Division? This started after the fact.

I'm thinking it more about the money. Cut backs are a huge thing right now.

And with Dale Jr's #88 team now winning and contending for championships against cup drivers, they are probably commanding more money..

You're joking right?

I thought about them using that as a recruiting method, but I said to myself "who would be dumb enough to join the military because of a race car driver?".

I guess I was wrong.

I guess I shouldn't underestimate the stupidity of Jr. fans.

Hmmmmm....

Just like what is happening at DEI.

Strange that everyone is ready to get their tourches and pitchforks when it's Teresa (DEI), but when it's Jr., it's oooooh poor Jr.
