For Jeff Gordon to complain about Dale Junior going for the win is ludicrous. Jeff's not in the limelite right now and he can't stand it. On the other hand junior's finally got a good car under him and wants to prove he's more than just Dale Earnhardts son. Quit crying Jeff!

I am not convinced of this "teamwork" that you speak of. Most of what Dale has accomplished on the track this year, he did without the benefit of his teammates. What happens in the garage, we are not privy to, so we don't know what "teamwork" goes on there. For what I remember, the 48 and 24 share one garage and the 5 and 88 share another. They are not housed under one roof.

Again, I don't see much HMS teamwork at all this year. Maybe that is the problem with them. I would agree with you if the 88 was the one trying to play catch up, but until lap 398 last night, he definetly had the upper hand.
