Looks like Jr. and Tony Jr. are rigjht where they need to be. Give him the speed and he can do the rest. A good car and good good pit crew and look out for the 88 at Daytona.

Good Morning Chief. Our Jr is looking good
and he seems to be ready to roll. I am so excited to get this season started. Hope the drafting goes good today and all the drivers stay safe.
Its good to see you back on. I took some time off myself got so tired of all the trashers......

That would be great and should be enough to easily get in the chase. You know thay are not going to have all the DNFs like last year so I would say they are real close to being ready to go. I bet Junior is getting psyched and is ready to start right now. He is probably like a little kid in a candy store.

Hi Snow, It's funny you say that because I just posted basically the same thing but your post wasn't there when I started typing mine and then when I posted There was yours saying alot of the same. How do they do the drafting thing. How many cars on the track at one time? I'm like you I think Junior and Tony Jr. are close to being ready. He's probably getting antsy as hell right now. Come Daytona He just has to stay out of trouble so that means stay up front all day and go get em in the end. It must be catching because I am already talking about the 500. Can't help it, we are having a big party that day at Pop's pub with Beer but chickens for everyone with a bunch of side dishes.

If I lived close I would party with you fans at Pops but since Indy is so far away my party will be at my house. Filled with fans that have a lot of diffrent drivers. We just have a good time and everyone roots for their favorite....Of course the decorations will be 88...lol

You bloggers are the fools because you let the NASSCAR put a basketball man Majik Johnson to a very high salary position with NASSCAR. He will get this salary from the tickets that you are to buy and the t-shirt advertisements that you wear. And then the job of the majik johnson is to make sure that they have more black music and the more black people and less of the white car race watchers. And he is to make sure that the nasscar is to make sure that you they put managers of the company who are black people. And they do this with the money from the fan and give it away. So if your child would like a job with nasscar they will tell the child to get behind the black child because of the arrangement with the jesse jackson and majik johnson.
