Who cares? These two vanilla drivers aren't going to be throwing water bottles at each other or punching each other out in the infield. They'll probably text each other a couple of sad faces and it's over. Gordons jealousy is starting to show and I think it's hilarious.

Actually Jimmie and Jeff do not have to be friends, all they have to be is team mates. Even the team issue on track is an iffy thing, Jeff is the old dog, still trying to prove he is a winner, despite the fact that he has not been near the driver he was with the Gordon-Evernham connection.

All dominate drivers have had a special relationship with a crew chief, especially in the more modern era. Gone are the days when your relative or best friend could be your crew chief and your drinking buddies were your pit crew. Jimmie has another three top line years to go, unless, Hendrick does something dumb like take Chad away to promote him in the company. I do not believe that Jeff will ever be the dominate driver that he once was, he no longer has that great working relationship with his crew chief, as he once did with Evernham, he is older and has much more going in his life than a race shop and a racecar. I believe that Jeff will, in the near future, do a Tony Stewart, OR, will get out of racing and enjoy his wife, life and all of the things that a life of racing has allowed him to get.
