This article clearly states Reuitmann took the blame for the incident. That should clear up any misconceptions that Jrh8ter and her band of haters has.
Jr was very angry and frustrated as would anyone. Therefor he said some not so nice things about Reuitmann and his abilities. Which he was taken to task over.

They are moving on why shouldn't we?

Nicely said Lilbit. People are afraid of the truth and they won't move on. It still will be twisted.

You mean people thought it was Jr's fault???

Now my sister is a hardcore Jr fan and she just found it absolutely ironic. She said, say it ain't so, Jr's in a wreck. We laughed. Then he kind of fumbled through the interview and then used the ran out of talent line, and we had another laugh.

Geeze, they're allowed to be mad after getting wrecked by someone else.

It's getting to be monotonous that he wrecks or is running in the back of the pack weekly.
Thing is, if it wasn't for bad luck he wouldn't have any luck.
Now don't take it wrong he's made his share of mistakes and needs to take the blame, but for the most part it is out and out bad luck.
It's better they speak about it and get the anger out that way than to use their fists. Though I must say when Spencer went after Kurt Busch it was something to remember. lol

I think that's why my sister laughs now. Because the only luck Jr has is bad luck. And either you can laugh at it or let it get to you. So she laughs. What can you do?

And let them vent, it's not the end of the world. They should have emotions.

at least this time he acted like he cared, most of the time he acts like he could care less if he ran 5th or 25th

I agree. It's to the point to where I try not to get too excited when he's running good. Because he has the most crappy luck ever right now!!!! And I used to get excited over anything he did on track.

I'm surprised so many people are upset over him with what he said. They complain he doesn't show any emotion and then when he does, he gets b!tched at for doing so. Maybe he should just take an oath of silence. Then that would make everyone happy.

The only thing that is going to make everyone happy with Jr. is doing the one thing he has always tried not to do, re-invent himself as Dale Sr. If he would go over to Richards and get in a black car with a 3 on the door and start knocking the hell out someone every week, he'd be the greatest thing since cheese whiz. That's what all the nuts like JRH8ER and the rest are so pissed with him for. Sr. made like he was a billy badass, man in black and they aren't willing to admit it just pisses them off that Jr. has the guts to be his own person.

Well, it wouldn't make me happy if he did that. LOL. But then again I was never a Senior fan, so I admire Junior for who he is. If he wants to drive the black number three one day, more power to him. But only because he wants to, not because people are hounding him to do it.

Jr is a big enough distraction without creating a three ring circus with him driving around with daddy's old number. But, don't be surprised if it happens with special modifications. He could win every week if he didn't crash. Jr Nation denialist would swear it is some kind of devine intervention from above.

Bad luck? What bad luck? Speeding on pit lane, missing his pit box, overreving the engine, burning up his brakes, pitting oustide the pit box, and lack of talent to race and rub fenders is NOT bad luck. It is poor mental and driving ability. Amazing how the other 42 drivers make their own luck, but jew-nyar has voodoo dolls giving him bad luck....excuses, excuses

i hope he don't ever drive the #3, that would be a slap in the face to Dale Sr. that would get everybody upset with the #3 finishing 25th every race. i think Childress would learn from Hendrick's mistakes, i hope

No, imo.. what is a slap in Dale Sr's face is the way is so called fans throw off on HIS son.
I don't think Dale Jr. wants to drive the #3.. But then again, I'm not Dale Jr. so therefore I can't say exactly what he may, or may not want to do later down the road.
Oh, btw I was never a Sr. fan but also never disliked him.

How about getting wrecked within the last twenty laps????? Or other thigns screwing him out of good finishes???? Now, I know he made mistakes earlier this year, but lately it's not Junior's fault why this team has been having bad finishes.

However, he must have wanted to be grand daddy as he wanted the #8 which was old man Ralph's number when he toiled around in support classes in the Charlotte area for many years. Either that or he knew he was not much of a driver and wanted a number that would be the same, whether right side up or upside down.
