You better step it up this year Jr. NASCAR has Danica now and just might not need you quite as much.

Red, I am changing my mind, I do really hope gooooonior will at least win one race this year, if not think of the mass suicide among gooooooonior nation fans that may happen. Think of the horror, thousands of bloated bodies hanging or bloodied surrounded by goooooonior souvenirs that where smashed in frustration. Oh the humanity.(Remember Newman on Seinfeld, lol)

After watching Kyle in that ShootOut last night, it appears that Dale Earnhardt Jr is more irrelevant than he ever was.

Earnhardt Sr (the NASCAR crash test dummy) has been gone so long and there have been so many changes to the sport since he was on the track that he and his stats are rendered meaningless in today's NASCAR.

Despite all the hope and hoopla lavished on him, Dale Jr has been a disappointment, and done more to tarnish the Earnhardt name than to carry the torch for the family.

As long as there are drivers with REAL TALENT competing, Jr will never shine as bright as some wish he would. The longer they pin their hopes on Dale Jr the more the irrelevant the Earnhardt name becomes. If they want the name Earnhardt to go down in history untarnished, they need to leave it to shine in the history books and stop trying to make Jr measure up. It simply isn't happening with Jr.
