Have to agree with Jeff. A second at Daytona and a pole at a race where he never led a lap, is not really a feel good comeback story. It's not the car, it's the driver. Put him in Jimmies car and tell him to learn it because we KNOW that car is set up to win.

Yeah for the most part race fans (other than dumbarse Jr fans) are sick of hearing about him. The sorry part is NASCAR still thinks then need Jr to keep NASCAR from failing. If he wins a few races though watch the attendence jump.

They should have a clown car race for him during the prerace show, he could drive in front of the grandstand throwing out carnival trinkets with 88 on them! That would fit right in with the mentality of his core fans and draw them in droves to the track like lemmings. Maybe they could even install one of them hot dog cannons on his car during the actual race to keep them there while he rides around by hisself.

I'm slowly starting to believe Jr. just doesn't have the intestinal fortitude to do it anymore. I hope I'm wrong but it's sure looking that way. He just hasn't shown that do or die drive that it takes to go all the way for a win in very long time. He's not showing the ability to adjust to the car anymore. Sometimes, for whatever reason, the crew can't find that sweet spot for the driver, he has to adjust to whatever the car is doing and make the best out of that. That's one of the reasons Johnson is so successful, he can do that. It's like Jr. gets mentally and physically wore down and he can't focus on the car anymore.

Mann how much crap can one man take? Haven't you heard behind every successful person is a handful of haters. If Jr was to leave racing so would a lot of the fans. Like it or not its a fact.
