How does Jeff make more money if Jimmie wins than if he wins himself? The usual deal for the purse money for someone of Jimmie's talent is 60/40. So Jimmie gets 60 per cent and the owner(Rick and Jeff)gets 40 per cent, so Jeff gets 20 per cent. Now if Jeff wins, he gets 60 per cent and Rick gets 40. Let's see, 20 per cent or 60 per cent, oh yeah, I can see where Jeff cleans up when Jimmie wins.

I'm not sure what race you were watching from Talledaga but the one I watched had Reitumann blowing a right front tire and taking Jeff out. Yeah, good ole Cousin Carl got a little too pushy with his bump drafting and got Biff out of shape and set off a real crowd pleaser but Jeff was already in the trailer by that time.

carl edwards should be taken out of the car at every restrictor plate race and replaced with someone who actually knows how to bump draft
