My55car....Ok I'll go slow for you. I do not own any Japanese cars. Brother-in law, sister, and her daughter and nephew all bought Japanese cars. And they now ALL say never again. Those people are part of my family. They are all adults and make there own choices ( I'll bet your still living with mommy on the farm ). Thank God they are making the correct one now . The 2 fires were scary to say the least. Duane the NAPA store closed here because frankly they were Idiots
and frankly, you are an idiot too! I said you are a hypocrite because your family buys foreign cars. It makes as much sense for you to be blamed for that as it does for Waltrip fans to have to read this yammering from you. In america we are still free to have opinions and buy what we want and go to Napa or root for Waltrip...and reply to some of the stupidist no sense making posts against a driver who's forum this is for. So...if u don't like us, Toyota, Napa etc...fine. we DON'T CARE...S H U T UP! HAHAHAHA! And, i am nearly 50 yrs. old and
"my mommy" died of cancer 2 yrs ago. She was a Mikey fan too... And i agree with the other guy...how did we get to all this arguing about foreign, Napa, blah. Go, run along your soap is on....

My55poscar.....You have me confused( must be that Indiana Meth ) with someone else about Waltrip. I don't waste my time writing about him. One thing I will say ..he is laughing all the way to the bank thanks to Toyota and Napa. Re-read the posts and direct your anger somewhere else. You can read right?

Yikes my55car, sorry about your mother but you got to chill out or you are going to have a heart attack. Until Mikey and Toyota do a whole lot better the rubbings are going to continue and only get worse if you get that nasty. Learn from me, Renee and I got off on the wrong foot but even though we I don't agree with her I do respect her. Personally I do not like Toyota or feel too bad for Mikey, however I really like this site and Renee is very knowledgable.

Well thanks Duane. I really try but alot of people think I am stupid and don't know anything simply because I root for Michael. I am glad you are one of the few good ones who can look past that.

Feel bad Michael didn't make the race, but don't feel TOO bad for them. With Toyota's help, they are making small steps to get things better. Early in practice today, Michael was actually fastest, then slowly dropped down to 31st or 32nd after not running too many more laps. That's a great leap for them since they usually barely made it into the top 20 in practice. The fact that he stayed in the top 20 for so long is great. Remember, he has to work on qualifying while most of the other teams got to work on whatever they want.
They will be in races soon. I guarantee it. They are making huge strides and getting better.

You know, you are right. It has rained for days and i got a little (well, a lot) bored so for the first time in my life (48 yrs.) i decided to read some Waltrip news and message boards that didn't require a lot of registration. Well, i was replying to some of these posts then i got into a comedic mood and got a little "off the wall" if you will. I am kind of known for that....on the extreme side i might add but never in a vindictive way. Just light hearted...you know so everyone can laugh. Then i was taken wrong, finally the one brought my best friend of 64 years (my dead mom) into it. Read back to see who...She was my best friend and i cared for her until the day she died. I absolutely love Michael Waltrip as a fan and have a whole room full of collectables and some are autographed. Been to Talladega every year for a long time with my family and friends, love Renee's posts and appreciated the heck out of your input in this current post especially. I never have associated in places or with people who want to make me feel bad about myself or who i choose to like so you all have a great time and i'll continue on with my life and my choice of driver and will have a great time doing so. I'm outta here!

And do you remember that Pearl Harbor was over 50 years ago and they've been our allies since then? Get over it you moron. If Toyota can't be in NASCAR because of Pearl Harbor, then Dodge can't be in NASCAR either because of WW2 also and the Holocaust.

Well, you are the only one in the world who doesn't know that Japan have been our allies since then. It's called a history book, pick one up and look at it. Japan doesn't owe us money, are you joking? What are you, one of those black folks that think that the white folks should pay the blacks for enslaving their ancestors or something? Get a life.

Yeah, I lost two cousins I never met on the USS Arizona during Pearl Harbor so get over yourself. All my grandparents served during WW2 as well. My father is retired military, my father in law was in the Army and Marines, I have several uncles that are retired military, my brother in law is former active duty Air Force who is now is the Air National Guard Reserves full time, and my husband is active duty Air Force who just spent 7 months in Afghanistan. You wanna say something now? Why don't YOU move to France and take your pansy friend with ya. Go serve in the military yourself instead of whining about losing an uncle you never friggin met. You aren't the only person who lost relatives during WW2. You are just an idiot who wants to use that as an excuse because you think Toyotas going to come in and take over the sport. They already said they aren't going to. They are just here to compete, and frankly, if the Ford and Chevy can't handle the competition, they need to quit whining or step up.

Your attitude just shows how racist you are and that you hold things in too much. Maybe you should go see a therapist for your anger and racial issues.
Go eat some sushi with Michael......... sure I would love to but I think he's more like me and we love lobster with butter and lemon, so I think we'll just hit a Red Lobster or something.
