What's going on with Mikey? I haven't been able to follow NASCAR all that much this year because it kinda got boring to me a little bit.... I would love to see Jr. and Mikey working together at the restrictor place tracks again!
What's going on with Mikey is that he's got this 3 car team with Toyota, and Toyota was forced to build a whole new engine for Cup, which wasn't totally perfect. Since Mikey "led" Toyota into NASCAR, the haters are dissing Mikey like it's HIS fault that Toyota was having a problem making the engines.
Well, Toyota's figured out what part of the problem was, and they are ALOT better now and getting better by the day. Mikey's even finished 10th a couple of times, and got 1 pole this year.
With Toyota and Dr. Eric Warren(an MWR employee), along with Gibbs racing coming to Toyota next year, I suspect the teams to be a HELL of alot better, and we should see Michael & Junior able to work together alot more like they did at Dega this year, and the Gatorade Duels(until Michael spun Junior out LOL)

It will all hinge on, if POS can qualify for the Daytona 500, unless you are talking about the draft created by that big hauler, for that CRAPA #55, as it heads from Daytona, back to Cornelius.

It created quite some draft, as it went from Denton County TX, all the way back to Cornelius and Racertainment, last Friday. Just like ol'-times, this season, for Wall-Banger.

Gibbs's organization with "bury" Motormouth Motorsports, instead of helping them.

This is racing, not the Salvation Army.

I fully expect Gibbs to win one of the first five races, if not the Daytona 500. Wall-Banger will be just like this season-----trying to get this three junkers into the shows, as NONE have Owners' Points, going into the 500 for 2008.

Tuff-shit---for POS and Motormouth Motorsports!

WALL, You have some real big issues with Mikey. What did he ever do to you to make you such a hater? Hit the wall, lose a race, steal your girlfriend, cost you money? I read these posts all the time and very truthfully you don't sound like your all there, I just don't get it.

What makes you think that Gibbs will bury MWR next year? Do you think just because they have some well known drivers and they have enjoyed some measure of success with Chevrolet that their transition to Toyota will be without any bumps? Do you really think that Toyota made any deal with Gibbs that will allow them to become an island unto themselves in their cup endeavors.

I think that Toyota is doing exactly what they set out to do by making approximately 1/3 of the cup teams be theirs. It will be interesting to see who is next to jump ship and go with them since GM is going through some really hard times right now and mabe can't afford to throw so much money at racing as they have in the past.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the season, have a good day.

Some measure of success with Chebbie? Damn, I must have slept through the past four or five seasons! Are we all talking about the same JGR, which produced a championship for Smoke and has two cars in the Chase this season?

What might I ask has POS done the past two years, but make an ass out of himself and ol' Fat-Wallet, with some of the lowest performing cars that are regulars in Cup, especially for multi-car teams.

JGR we all know has one of the best engine shops in JAPCAR. POS has no engine shop and uses those TuRD bangers or may get some hand-me-downs from JGR, in a weak moment, next season.

It will all be about the "power-plants" for next season, with JAPCAR getting that Camry of Tomorrow (COT) fine-tuned, along with Mr. Magoo, they will all be the same. The only difference will be the JGR Toy-let motor vs. the TuRD thumper, like blows-up a lot, this season.

As we all know, POS is the most over-rated driver in JAPCAR Cup.

I am going to start of by saying i like Mikey but the only reason he got the poll at Dega was it was a impound race so all the top 35 teams had there race set ups in there cars and the go or go homers all put in qualifying set ups for qualifying and adjusted to race setups on the first caution. But Mikey still ran a good race.

Actually Keith, Michael, David, and DJ did NOT have qualifying set ups in their cars. Their cars were set to run the race. Michael didn't make ANY changes on his first few pit stops and very little later on. Not sure about David or DJ since I didn't listen to them on Track Pass, but they were in race set up, which is why they lasted longer than most of the other GOGH cars.

Hi!
I am going to try to get this right, ok? Please be patient....I think next seasin, Hair will do much better, first race Daytona 500, either he or Pizza-boy will qualify way up front. The turdbangers (?) will improve. Wait, are turdbangers the pit crew or do we not have a name for them yet? Old Fat-Wallet will be supposedly driving part-time, but who is driving the turd-mobile the rest of the time? I keep thinking Ricky Rudd will drive for POS (am I getting this all right, now? because you know by now whenever a driver retires, it means see you next year with some other team.

Michael will win a race next season. Reuti will win more races in the Busch series and could possibly win the Busch championship. At least, I hope so.

Chopsticks, oh, hell, I forgot, Toyota, right? Oh, man, anyway, Japaroonie or whoever it is will do much better next year and the cars will look purty and will be built like tanks.

I hope you appreciate this little essay, Wallbanger. It was not easy. Have a good one.

I personally do not like Toyota, but i do not think that it has ruined the sport but to think that Stewart will not be getting any more championships as long as he continues with Gibbs.

I am sure if Toy-let had not paid-off King Brian with so much $$$(I mean YEN!) to turn the once, great, NA$CAR into JAPCAR----we would not be seeing the Camry of Tomorrow(COT), created to give Toy-let all of this so-called "parity" in the sport currently in-vogue with King Brain.

It would have been much nicer to take those 4-banger-rice-burning- "foreign/import" rides back to Japan and created their "own" racing series, just like we used to have an "American" racing series formerly called------NASCAR---in the good, ol'-days, before King Brian and Toy-let!

For further information---see that great Wall-Banger/Fat-Wallet video on You-Tube---"Turning Japanese". It explains it SO well!

Wallbanger, you a Ford man? I know you like the great and powerful Roush, but what drivers do you really like besides Stephen Leicht, which I know I mispelled, sorry. I like all the guys on Jack's "team."

So does the gas produced from cows farting, But I don't see us killing all the cows! Well not all at once, Maybe at mealtime! Electricity production, forges, & foundries (coal burning) Would be you biggest polluters, I prefer Nuclear Power stations, France is 80% Nuclear now cutting thier dependence on fossil fuel, and other countries! I think it's time to invest in Nuclear power, as well as wind, solar, and hydro, just think how many small dams or dams period there are without a power plant? Another wasted resource? So yeah, stopping NASCAR would help slow down Global Warming, Like putting duct tape on the hull of the Titanic would have slowed down it's sinking! I'm with you man just think BIGGER!

why is the US selling our own oil to other countries for $50 a barrell and yet we are buying it from other countries for $200 a barrell? Now our gas prices are sky high, and yet, there IS something that can be done about that. It's BS.

YES! YES! We must kill all the farting cows, shut down coal plants, build more dams and nukes... AHAAAHHHHH! Nuke the farting cows! That's it, brilliant! Too late to help the Titanic I'm afraid. But if it is decomposing it is producing green house gases too. So NUKE THE TITANIC!
