Nothing against AJ but I don't think he is ready. Maybe some of the veteran drivers that lost their jobs because of the open wheelers will have a chance now. I'd like to see Stremme get a good ride.

He was so disappointed that i really felt bad for him not getting in the race/failing to qualify and all..He is having some bad luck right now,i hope they continue to give him a bit more time!

The open wheelers I root for are doing well, this A.J. I never much cared for him. Franchiti, Montoya and Carpentier are doing well. Even Hornish, they're rookies after all. I think they will keep their jobs and get better and better. They are stock car rookies after all. But Allmendinger was there last year so I guess he can't cut it. He was in Champ car, I have no love for Champ car, lol.
Dario finished 6th in the Nationwide and Carpentier 8th.

Oh Mindy if he came to him or Carpentier A.J. is nothing to me, lol. His testing was good that's why I'm confused.

AJ has always in my opinion been a little over rated. As for Stremme- yeah I think he deserves a chance.

Stremme dosent deserve anything he had his chance on a better team than AJ. Its hard to compare AJ to Vickers since Brian was a Nationwide champion who has driven stock cars his whole career. I do agree that AJ has been disappointing in cup though.

David Stremme has been around since 03 in the Busch series he has 104 starts and 0 wins.

In 2005 he went to Sprint Cup and has 70 starts no wins and hardly any top 10.

The driver who took his job on the other hand is the champion of the series he just left and on the list of top 50 drivers in the world.

He may be an open wheelers but that open wheeler is better then Stremme.
