YIKES NO... just like last year.. wasn't he taken out with 5 laps to go?
Yeah he was, but I agreed with JR when he said that he really wasnt getting it done out there anyway. His car was mediocre at best in 2007.

<quoted text>Hi Darlin. It's like starting a brand new job. It takes a little while to get the feel for how everyone and everything works in his new suroundings. He'll be fine. But you can'texpect him to come right out and win Daytona. I'd be happy with a top five and let him get a feel for things with his new team. He'll be fine. At least we know the motor's are much better.
Hello Dr T..LOL... Itotally understand the pressure one has w/a job change..even tho i've been at the same Bar for 27 yrs ,LOL ..But he just didn't seem to have his self assurance behind him..he seemed like a scared kid, the other day! jmo..But since then ..i've had the chance to read up, and now feel i understand it all much better hearing it from him, and yes he is nervous, but at the same time he is glad about his move towards maturity,so to speak.. He even speaks about not having that job security, stayin outta Ricks office ,lol PS..I almost forgot to answer this question.. "Daletona".. "Yes" I expect him to go straight in and WIN, why shouldn't I ? I think he has a good a chance as anyone out there..Faith ,and I do have it in my driver! Im sure hopeing the best for Matty too, actually all DRIVERS ..Just Jr ..be the BEST..Can't blame a fan for wishing huh? lol...Have a great day sweetie, im suppose to get the white stuff here today! Hugs, stay warm!

<quoted text> He is happy to be at Hendrick but the stress is beginning to show. He knows the eyes of racing are all on him and that he has got to put
the rumors to rest. In order to do that he has to
give one of his best performances at Daytona.
He will be fine after Speedweek is over..
I Agee, now that ive had a chance to read up on "his words"! lol..Have a great day gal!

He may just be getting into race mode. He seems to shut everything out when he does that.
I think you are right.

<quoted text>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.
I agree, now!..lol
