don't you be worrying about Hendrick. They will figure out an angle. Chady is about as crooked as they come.

Jr brings no curse. He just isn't as good a driver as all the Jr thinks want him to be.

Hendrick has some great drivers with the exception of Jimmy J who can go fast in a great handleing car on a smooth track but loses it at the slightest problem. The new car of tomorrow is bringing out the real drivers. Its shows who has the skill to wrestle these things around for 4 hours.As it goes for JR he has no curse. He is just not the driver his father was and his fans seem to expect to much of him.

Hendrick will figure it out....like always and place 3 or 4 cars into the chase. Jr is atleast not having the problems with faulty equipment (blown engines etc) that seemed to plague him last season. Look for the 24 or 48 to be strong this weekend. Jr is not the driver his pop was, but give him credit and time to come around. He is already running better than he did the last 2 seasons....

Three of the four Hendrick cars probably will be in the top 12 within the next 3 races. Maybe by the end of Martinsville. If whatever Jimmie and Chad are working on doesn't pan out soon, they will start throwing last years setup under the cars and go back to kicking butt. Never fear, HMS will be there when it counts with bells on. There is going to be some new faces in the Chase this year though.

Do y'all remember what dieon sanders did to the cowboyws when the were a perfectly good dynasty without him...he slowly destroyed it, all the attention on him caused cracks and then a downfall...same thing will happen here with Jr.

With the new point system anyone can become a Nascar champion. They should return to the old system. Then see how many could over come their lack luster preformances.
