I'll be watching dogs & burgers cook. NASCAR has become so BLAND & predictable, like watching a fight between a heavyweight and a lightweight. BORING sums it up succintly.

......"To get back up to speed, DIS has lowered ticket prices for children for the Coke Zero 400 and will allow larger soft-sided coolers and certain lightweight backpacks in the grandstands."

That should have a strong appeal to Jr Nation.

If interest and ticket sales donít pickup, Helton & France might have to put Jr in the Wrangler car with the illegal equipment again.

Lets have your proof that the Wrangler car was illegal. When you have something real to say about Jr, someone might take you seriously. Until then your just a clown that hates Jr.

Its more than that. IF it was just the recession & money and the fans not being able to pinch enough to attend a race, those fans would(should) still be tuning on telvision. They are not. People are not attending, nor are they watching on TV. That leads me to believe the issue is not the economy, its the product. COT? the chase? something made a whole lot of fans turn their backs.

Maybe folks found the expense of cable tv to be something they had to shave off to be able to buy gas or groceries. Just sayin..........

Well, apparently not, aint OJ in jail at the moment?? He got away with murder, thats my opinion. Ok, you dont hate Jr, i like that. If it wasnt Jr, it would be somebody else, someone has to be the one some love to hate,{or think hes overhyped and a fraud}. Being a fan of Jrs, I cant get enough info on him and his team. The guy just wants to race, he cant help he is his fathers son. Jr is not his Dad. There is not a driver alive that can fill those shoes. He is well liked by many more than those who dont believe in him. Maybe some of that fan base is just being loyal to Big E by pulling for Jr, I really dont know any motives that others have, I only have my own. Jr is not the un talent and boob some make him out to be. If he was lazy like some claim, I dont think he would be 4th in points at this stage in the season. It has sucked outloud seeing his failures and having to be mocked by his doubters. But a loyal fan takes the good with the bad, thats a good quality, not something that would make one stupid, like it is often portrayed by Jrs doubters. If Jr never won another race, Id still be his fan. Remember when King Richard became uncompetititve in his latter years?? His fans didnt leave him, they were loyal and stuck with his failure till he retired from driving. Same thing with Jr, only thing is Jr gots a fair amount of time left, as his fan, I can have the hope he will be winning when he retires. I get your point and respect it, just dont understand why its so wrong to be a loyal fan.

"....The guy just wants to race....." What are you talking about Jr rarely races in anything but Sprint Cup, unless of course he gets a sweet deal like last years Nationwide race at Daytona. If Jr really wanted to improve he'd race in more Nationwide and Truck race like superior drivers like Kyle Busch. The only conclusion one can reach is that Jr is too lazy.

thankyou for your input,.... you have your opinion, I have mine. Perhaps Kyle would have already had a cup championship if he did just one series. Thats just speculation, but the drivers that drive multiple series are few. Just because Jr chooses not to participate in any other series does not mean hes lazy. I see your from CT, we all know a feller named jim from up in them parts, are you him????????

It's time for ol Joooooonnnnnnnyyyyyyyyyrrrrrr in the Wrangler mobile with the "restricter plate" (assister plate) holes so large a beer can could slide through! Even the A$$CAR media (shills for the Kingdom) wanted to drop that Wrangler "victory" story immediately as everyone knew the fix was in. Even ol lazy boy seemed embarrassed!
