Actually, this is posted in the Tony Stewart Forum (as well as the NASCAR forum). Most of us here don't even talk about Jr-but I know what you mean.
I am assuming that "NBJ" stands for Nothing But Jr-right? Well, even though it is hard to tell by some of the posts here, we are all about Tony...so "NBT" lol
Who is your favorite driver?
Actually "nothing" but what ever.

I like GB, so I'll be a dreamer like everyone and say "NBB".

As weird as this sounds, I am really enjoying Jeff today. It must be that I am having NASCAR withdrawls!

I'd be far more impressed with a competition for the most economical small car that is also the most affordable, without any frills that would provide every household with a reliable, affordable 2nd car to commute to work and school in. Maybe instead of 200mph + muscle cars racing around the track we ought to be looking at cars like the TaTa Nano that cost $2500 ?

It does no one any good to develop a hybrid or a plug in that you still have to pay $35,000 for. Let's start looking at $3,500 ? The race is for survival, and it shouldn't be for speed.

All I know is that preseason, they should not be so focused on ANY team.. every single team out there is only on their second year with the COT and some might just have finally figured out how to get the car to turn.. we need to wait and see, like Tony said, you never know who is holding their info close to their vest?
News to all NASCAR media.. every single driver has fans.. and I do not believe that ANYONE appreciates that the competitive field is narrowed to 5 cars already according to the media...PLEASE... I BEG of you, respect every single driver.. Ryan, Biff, BILL ELLIOT!!!
ok debi ' i hope you stay true to your word on beggibg folks to respect every drive '' its here in your own words ' so i will say to you '' no more bashing on hms drivers ' is that correct>>>>> >>>

<quoted text>If Chad worked for anyone other than Rick Hendrick, his driver would have been PARKED this past year.. people who do not even SPEAK ENGLISH knew they were not supposed to touch the body of the COT...
also, 99% of Chad's "racing" is done at the table in the garage when they have a meeting and they tell each driver his role for the week- Casey Mears, you are to block... Jeff and Jimmie, we only care about qualifying.. because the last pit stall on pit road will get us the needed track position so DO NOT RACE UNTIL YOU ARE TOLD TO.. you are not real racers, proof of that is that you do not race unless it is for us.. but for you 2 racers, the most important thing is that no matter how you win, from pit road officials helping you and letting infractions go, to pit stall location allowing only you to be on the lead lap after one of our called in phantom debris cautions.. you need to get out of the car and ACT like you deserve to have won the race, even if you are recorded to be begging for a rain out at Pocono...you 2 acting like you deserve the win is CRUCIAL because your fans are DRUNK and they will believe that you actually do deserve these wins.. now, remember.. do NOT RACE UNTIL CHAD TELLS YOU TO... racing is the least important thing in NASCAR today... strategy... is all that matters."
that is Chad at the table in the garage each Monday.. he needs to reverberate these directions each week because money is the only thing that his racers care about...when they win, they are not even excited because there is no glory in winning the way that they do...it is a crime what they have done to supposedly the highest level of racing in America.. I hope that all the other teams can break up their strategy so that the best car all day long and the best driver each week will win the races... not by exiting the pits each week either.. but on the track.
Brian France... I am one of the long time fans that you now care about... so listen to me.. let them RACE!!! do NOT CALL BOGUS CAUTIONS just because your golden boys, Jeff and Jimmie need them for the planned strategy to work.. Brian.. we want to see RACING put back in the drivers hands..NOW!!!
woohoo''''''like nascar would listen to you yapping in the wind 'lol'''this is a funny post debi....

Most people on this forum have blinders on.
They can't believe that anyone but their "beloved" Jr. is talented.
What they fail to realize is that Jr. is a midpack driver.
TS is twice the driver DE is, but they can't admit it. Hell TS is twice the drive my favorite driver is.
This forum should change to "NBJ".
leave jr. alone jimbo.....

Strange how the good quality of Toyota products have been rated so highly over the past few years and now since they are part of NASCAR more and more reports are surfacing about the problems with Toyota's.
