Yes he is 18, but from all the hoopla that's been going on about him, they make him sound like a pro. Which he is not. They say that he can do this and do that, he's such an expert in driving, he's gonna win all these races. Yeah right! He's a kid who has had everything given to him. If he runs between 30-35 next yr I'll be surprised.No telling how many DNF's he'll have.

Joey is not responsible for what the "HOOPLA" nuts say about him. But to bash an 18 year old just starting, you all need to be ashamed, I dont know an 18 year old who is even close to being as respectable as Joey. It dont matter what the media or nascar nuts say, but being tony has been racing so many years and a 2 time champ, whats his excuse for his no experience season?? And Jeff gordon, "NO WINS" HAHAHA now want to talk?? I got lots for you who bash young guys just starting, you had to start some where at one time also, didnt you? Do the math! Bring it on!! And i am to believe every thing that is said about you to, RIGHT?? I love to "PLAY-DAT-GAME"

Sure. I do. I'll just point out that even with no wins, no bonus, he still outscored all them fools. So what?

As for lil Joey - he shouldnt get any special treatment no matter what. I'm pretty certain they'll try to ignore him on the track as they pass him and if he has the balls to act like he's an equal out there, they'll teach him what tough love looks like in NASCAR.

Nobody's trying to bash him, we're just not going to pretend like he's got an easy road ahead. These guys who have been in the game will do things to him in their cars that he doesn't dare try if he even knew such moves existed. I mean, what would you do if he's in your way? "Watch out, youngster, move your ass over, or I'll move you over." Period. They're not there to give him experience, their job is to pass him.

We'll see just how great he is right away when he's in a plate race. He survives that and stays in the lead draft, I'll pat him on the back and say "Damn good driving."

You are such a sad nut! Were you as good at everything you did at 18 as those older with years of experence?? With you hateful attitude i will say yes, you are that gulliable! And in turn, I hope Joey takes out every one conected to HMS being he caint drive, HEY! he will be the most popular driver in Nascar just by taking out HMNS, the ass end coward drivers! You sure must be proud of that, and I know you are the kind that would be, what a joke! What is really sad, is they compare Joey to a young Jeff and that is a slam on Joey!! But keep rapping on Joey, for I know that so many folks caint stand young people who make more than them and are jealious that an 18 year old has accomplished far more than any of you ever will. roflmao!

Are all JGR guys as old as Jeff and been racing as many years as the old man? Thats whats so stupid about you guys, you compare the very young to the OLD, use your brain. But Kyle sure whiped a#S on em this year, and ONLY 23, what about your HMS a#S enders, the cowards! Take Kyles pic out of your avitar, cause it proves to me that you know Kyle is the best of the best to put in there no excuse! Only smart thing I see about you!

You say joey will do so well against the older guys then make excuses when somebody makes the comparison. besides you are the one who mentioned gordon.

Nobody said we hope he fails, Red. I do hope he shines, hell - give him Kyle's 2008 season, and then he'll have earned his respect. But I'm not going do like they said Jr was supposed to get a half dozen wins and then be disappointed when he doesnt.

And dont think you can dictate what counts as bashing or hating. Just because people dont agree he'll be a superstar is neither bashing or hating.

You still dont get it! Typical HMS fan! I said, give the 18 year old a chance, he has to learn, but he never will until he has time to do so, but you nuts say he aint all that compared to the OLD GUYS, of course not, he hasnt been in a full time cup race yet and i did not say he is better than the OLD GUYS, but just might be, but stop comparing him to the OLD GUYS, it dont hold no weight, unless your Stewart!HAHA Served with what?? Your total ignorance?? ""FOOL""

Nobody cares what you think I said, or even what you think YOU said. You brought up Stewart and Gordon. And the response was Gordon outscoring the the JGR guys. Nobody cares to compare old guys to new - that's your own dumbass interpretation of the discussion.

You think he'll be a star. I dont care if he is or not and dont think he's going to be. It's not hating or bashing like you keep insisting and since you cant follow the discussion,no sense having one with you.

Crackhead.
