Well hello there Jon. Now you are trying your best to say that Dale Jr. can't drive? I think someone is a very jealous person. I surely would like to hear your opinion on the drivers that wreck drivers, due to they can't pass them? Oh accidental you think. If Speed Park is still there, and you find out he will be there.. Please get there and race against him, maybe then if you can hang in there you can come back and let us know the results of the little race, that you and Jr. could be involved in. You need glasses like a few drivers I know, that it was an accident.. Yea right. Oh and with no luck drivers do not win. But he has won remember?

Jr. is #1 seller, clothing, etc. He is the #1 seller for hendrick an nascar. He is a Salesman that what jr great at, not driving a race car. Its just part of it. Oh he will probably make the chase but he wont win it.

Unless you have a crystal ball, you have no idea who is going to win the Chase. So don't make statements that you may come to regret later.

So you think Junior has no talent at all and is living off his dads name? Maybe you should get in a race car against him and put your money where your mouth is.

Well to tell you the truth i race out at MB speedway for 3 years that jr was begining his career at MB speeway he suck he was a back marker car. During that time he won 3 times in 3 years. He only racing because of his last name. Belive me MB speedway has more talent than most drivers in nascar. I know that for a fact.and far as the crystal ball he wont win the chase. He a salesman, he will never be great driver and he only were he is because of his daddy. How can one leave a race team that your dad put together an do what jr did. Get real he trying be something he not like his daddy. So what i say is fact, i dont regret anything the truth hurts to all you Earnhardt nation fans.

How did JR get into this convesation,.. the Article was about CM.
I was surprised Hendrick let KYLE BUSH go and kept Mears. Mears has wrecked himself and OTHERS more raced than he's finished... We was known as a "wreck magnet"....
"HE's a WEAPON" out there I remember someone saying once...
Replacing him with someone like MARK MARTIN is a SMART choice... Mark has won several IROC Championships... which is EXACTLY what CUP racing has turned into....
EXACT SAME-BODIED CARS, just different MANUFACTURERS DECALS on them... and different Engine Builders..

I for one have basically QUIT watching it.
NASCAR has turned into PRO WRESTLING,... you can predict the outcome before the end...
Gordon or Johnson are running like crap... 40 Laps to go CAUTION for (invisable) DEBRIS,
24 & 48 Get out of PITS in TOP 10,...(amazing,,, they came 15ht & 18th... NO SPEEDING PENALTY.. no way!)

Green comes out... 24 & 48 cruise around blocking for each other.... 10 to go,... Some LOSER wrecks.. Caution OUT.... go to PITS.. 24 & 48 hold 3rd & 5th,... Green comes out with 3 to GO Gordon Lags and Stacks up the Field then Jumps the Restart (no penality).... Gordon SHOVES 2 cars out of the way and Wins... AMAZING... YADDA YADDA YADDA

Blah, blah, blah. Actually, he won 4 times in 100 starts. Jimmie Johnson won just one Busch race when Hendrick Motorsports gave him an oppurtunity. Does that mean he didn't deserve it? Junior left the race team because they weren't giving him what he needed to be competitive. D.W has said that if Junior went to his father and said that he wasn't getting what he needed, then his dad would have told him to go. Do you have ears? Open them and listen to Dale Jr. He doesn't speak like his father and he doesn't drive like his father. He isn't trying to be his father, most people admire that about him. Fact? Maybe in your sad little mind. You haters will never give him the credit he deserves, so I sit here and read what you write with an amused little smile and feel pity that your life has become this.
