You know I decided I wasn't even going to ask why. Not worth the time or energy.

I'm so glad that Vickers is doing well. I'm also keeping my eye on David Ragan. Both are talented young men who deserve a shot at The Cup.
But--don't worry, kiddies. Smoke won't choke. The bad luck is over and good luck WILL begin. Think good thoughts..
Think about this,tho--think about the pressure that Tony is under. Every week he--and the other drivers-- put their lives on the line. They don't know if they're driving their race car to victory lane or if they're going to be carried out in an ambulance--or a hearse.
Add in pressure from sponsors--personal appearances, commercials, etc--a radio show,several business ventures, constant traveling,
( not knowing if your coming or going)and endless speculation and gossip about private life and you have one wiped out dude.
I know I wouldn't like it if in some of my rare, precious free time I'm constantly being bombarded by people wanting a piece of me. Here I am, trying to relax with my can of Shitz and some HoHos and some asshole is screaming at me "YOU FUKKIN ROOOOLLL" while asking for an autograph for everyone in his family. I'd get Medieval on you real quick.
There's an old saying , " Free your mind and your ass will follow". Maybe if he can just be left alone for awhile his mind --and his ass--will be free to be able to concentrate...

yes, and don't get me wrong, I like Kevin just fine but this year he has not even been noticed on the track until the end when they go, "Hey, Kevin Harvick is in the top 10, or 15.. I could also speak of Jeff Gordon who also is getting finishes that are way better than his performance.. I mean, when talking about a champ... I think it should be a guy racing his gutts out not one who survives to get a decent finish

I can't stand him, If he went to just being team owner I would be thrilled with it.
