Its easy to say that unless its your driver. Had it been anyone else but Jimmie no one would be complaining now. Everytime theres an issue that doesn't make everyone happy all of a sudden they want the rules changed. Had it been Martin would you still say this? Probably not.

Which martin are you talking about? One of the Martins doesn't need a lucky dog the other is a grid filler.

Hell! Just do away with getting back on the lead lap all together. Once you fall a lap down, your not allowed to ever gain it back. Wonder if that would make all those whiners happy? It would certainly make me, a Jimmie fan, happy. You want to know why? Because Jimmie will rarely not be on the lead lap. It wouldn't affect Jimmie in any real perceivable way. I can't say those regular lucky doggers will be too happy, but it would really be a moot point to Jimmie.

Take the top 35 rule out get in on speed and race like the rest do. If you're so f'in good why do you need to make sure you're in the show or not? No more charity.

So true. When he goes a lap down he's good enough to get it back without the lucky dog. However it did help at Pocono.haha.

It did indeed. I remember a few years ago when Ryan Newman came from 3 laps down to win.
