There are guys each year that i hope finally gets fired or run out of the sport altogether. It's obvious who has the talent to be competitive in Cup and who doesnt. Even when guys have down years such as Dale Jr, Mark Martin, and Jeff Burton, it's obvious they still have what it takes to get the job done, although every driver at some point has down years, and Jimmie Johnson has a couple long overdue coming.
And then there are those that obviously dont have the talent to validate them being in the Cup series, usually age or marketability dictates why they still have a ride and it makes me sick. I've been sickened to see guys like Sterlin Marlin at Ganassi replaced by Stremme or Bobby Labonte at Gibbs replaced by JJ Yeley. So each year there's drivers out there i hope eventually get ran off or fired and usually im right. Some examples were Jason Leffler in the Fed Ex Gibbs car, Dave Blaney from the RCR Jack Daniels Chevy, and JJ Yeley from the Gibbs ride.
Last year i hoped that Mears would be fired, and lucky he was, although now im still pissed he's still in Cup series. I was hoping no one would hire him and he'd be ran off to IRL or something, so now i hope that he'll be fired from the Jack Daniels car after this year when it's obvious he doesnt have what it takes to win races and championships. Although im thrilled that Mark Martin's back, i have a feeling that ill be hoping Brad Keselowski gets ran out of the sport as i think he doesnt have what it takes, as Mears did, so maybe he'll blow it before Hendrick makes that stupid decision.
Ive been fairly right when i say guys need to be fired. Look at where Yeley, Blaney, and Leffler are right now. I said that Mears needed to be fired and he was, and it's only a matter of time before he gets let go again. Also, i think Vickers is a joke and needs to be gone as well.

First off, he looks like a damn fish, and one that needs to be thrown back! Second off, he's as thin as a twig and if i threw a nerf ball at him, he'd probably break in half! And also, metal mouth has braces, that kid was the nerd that got his ass kicked and only drives fast cause that's the fastest way he got out of getting his ass kicked! Just because he won two Nationwide races last year dont mean he'll amount to squat! Truex, now that cat is a guy that Jr found that has talent, Brad "The Polish Idiot" Keselowski is a flying door knob! Hell, the only reason he's even running any Cup races is because Jr begged Rick to give him the opportunity, but like the Jimmie Johnson "let's give my best friend a chance theory" that was applied to with Johnson's buddy Casey Mears, it will fail as always! Same happened at Gibbs with Stewart talking Gibbs into hiring his driver at the time who was Yeley, and how did that work out? Oh yea he got fired too! And the same end result will happen with The Polish Idiot!

Trust me, he has an ugly mug, but so does Kyle Busch but the difference is Kyle Busch(who i despise) has obviously talent and i dont see Brad with it and he should be fired. I think he's way overhyped because of who he drives for, and is only riding Dale Jr coattails. I liked Truex and knew when i first saw him he had talent and has obviously shown it, and could be outrunning Edwards and Kyle B if he had better equipment. as what he's running on the track is holding him back. Bottom line, Truex Jr won championships with equipment that was great in the Nationwide series, but Brad has better equipment and resources at Hendrick than Truex had with DEI, and Truex did more with it.
The are several drivers i pull for, but my fav of course is Dale Jr. My top five is:
1. Dale Jr.
2. Mark Martin(as long as he's fulltime in the 5)
3. Jeff Burton
4. Sam Hornish Jr
5. Reed Sorenson/Elliott Sadler
Also, i have some that if there up front, i pull for such as McMurray, Tony Stewart now that he's back in a Chevy, sometimes Bowyer, Labonte if desperate enough. There are teams that i like the drivers and dont like the owners such as Truex/EGR and Hamlin/JGR that i dont pull for cause i dont want their owners to win, which i also hate Roush and Gillett but i like the drivers a lil more to pull for them. There is also owners i respect and like where i dont like the drivers they've hired. Im a huge RCR fan as i think he's the most respectable owner in Nascar, i just dont like Harvick and Mears and hope they both are gone after this year as Harvick's contract is up after this year, and maybe Mears will be fired again. I like Penske as well, although i think he's too focused on IRL and it hurts his Nascar program, i was glad to see Newman leave, but i think he made a mistake in hiring Stremme and although Kurt Busch has matured alot and i like him better now than when he drove for Roush, i still remember his attitude and behavior being horrible and not a fan of his. I dont care much for Red Bull Racing either and although they have made great strides, i think Vickers, Montoya, and Ragan are way too overhyped and the next team to merge or be out of the sport is Mikey Waltrip Racing, it's only a matter of time, although they will be in close competition with EGR as both have struggled badly to retain sponsorship which im not suprised about.

Hey numb nuts, what has reed sorenson ever done? and elliot saddler has had 1 good year in nascar, so why are they on your top 5 but you wish casey gets fired? It's hard to contend at hendrick when your team is forced to be the gineu pig for new equipment and setups, do some research, this is true, just research car setups for each race last year and you will find that the 5 team always had a different chassis, setup, and etc than all 3 other teams and most of the time this was the trial run for certain equipment. And as far as Ginassi goes when he was there he just didn't have the equipment to contend. I guarentee that if casey gets treated equal to the other teams at rcr, he will make the chase.

Hey Mears fan, cut the crap and excuses, what a bunch of BS!
First off, when Mears was moved up to the top team at Ganassi, he bolted for the next best thing, even if he was showing sparks of improvment, and few of those, he got greedy and left for better pastures where all he did is stand around and crap in like grazzing cattle! He took over the 25 car which had some success right before Vickers left it as it did when a race and was up there until the end knocking on the door to make the Chase in 2006. Casey takes the 25 car over, gets a win on fuel mileage in the CocaCola 600, same way he got his only Nationwide win, and doesnt even come close to making the chase, and almost had the car fall out of the top 35 at the beginning of the season, and from what i heard, Rick Hendrick and Terry Labonte had discussions on possibly replacing Mears that first year with Terry so they could get the car back in the top 35 if it fell out with Terry's past champ provisional, so as if that wasnt a tale-tell sign of what was to come.
Then, in 2008, Kyle Busch gets booted over Mears, which i know Busch was a bone head and a big mouth, but as far as talent it was a no brainer who should've been fired there(duh Mears!) and Mears takes over the 5 ride which Busch had proven it could when races and make the Chase, nothing on that team was changed when Jr came over as most Jr's team was some of his old and some of the 25, and Mears even had a better crew chief in getting Busch's Alan Guftason than Dale Jr's crew chief Tony Jr, and although i wanted Jr to go in the 5 ride with Guftason, Mears got it and still in proven equipment, as Kyle Busch showed, Mears still couldnt get a win or even compete to make the Chase and again, at the beginning of the season the 5 car got close to falling out of the top 35, and took out his teammate Dale Jr at California. People say Dale Jr only has a ride because of his last name, that's BS, because that's story applies to Casey and his legendary uncle, who gained that success in open wheel. Mears may be a good open wheel guy, i dont know and dont really care, but he has no business being behind a stock car and is a joke!
I hope RCR throws him out on his ass as Rick Hendrick did this past year! Childress is a more respectable owner than Rick and i like Richard better, but he's done it before with Jeff Green, Steve Park, and Johnny Sauter and with guys like Truex, Sadler, Kurt Busch, and McMurray becoming available this year, Childress would be an idiot not to consider all four of those guys over Mear's stupid ass. And also for reference, i read that every one of Mears teammates, Gordon, Dale Jr, and even his longtime friend Johnson, told Rick that they needed to replace Mears with Mark Martin! Why is it one of Mears closest friends, who he was a best man too at Johnson's wedding, get the truth but you morons supporting Mears cant! The finishes dont lie! 2009, the last season of Mears in Sprint Cup!
Also, Elliott Sadler and Reed Sorenson, they both took over crappy rides as Mayfield who Sadler replaced was running awful in 2006 and obviously golden boy Kahne is getting the best stuff as it was taken away from Mayfield after the 2005 season so that's Sadler's story and same for Reed, he has a hellva lot of talent, but the 41 was horrible also when Mears drove it, although Mears like i said had better equipment and provided the same results, but Reed didnt have good equipment at Ganassi and Evernham was the only option Reed had to him, and he takes over the 43 car that not even Bobby Labonte could resurrect so Reed has his work cut out for him, but at least Sadler has shown he can win races and make the chase without the help of fuel mileage and Reed is young and still has plenty of time to prove himself, if his equipment doesnt fail him at Evernham as it has Sadler.

All I'm saying is read up on car and chassis setups for the 2008 season and compare them to his other 3 teammates, the 5 team was a ginea pig for the other 3 teams that's a fact, almost every race the 5 team tried out all the new gear and casey wouldn't do it anymore, and as far as jimmie asking rick to let go of Casey that is false when jimmie was presented with the idea of getting rid of mears he told rick and casy both he would stay out of it. And I agree with you that richard childress is the most respectable owner in nascar and that all 4 of his drivers will have equal equipment and setup availability, if casey doesn't make the chase this year I will personally appologize to you. I respect your opinions and honesty.

You might be right about the 5 being the test dummy team, but that'd be after he was announced to be leaving, and if not by then, then when he missed the chase as probably was the case for McMurray and Ragan at Roush since those were the only Roush teams to miss the chase. That 5 car and team was proven chase contender team and a winner when Kyle Busch was in it and Jr put most of his team together from the old Bud team at DEI and what he didnt get from that team was filled in by the old 25 team. I think Clint Bowyer will be deeply affected by the split of him and the Jack Daniels ride and Gil Martin and Bowyer had alot of chemistry and dont be suprised if, like the Carl Edwards/Bob Osborne split and put back together, that Bowyer doesnt end up with Gil Martin over heading up the Cheerios team next year. Im not only hoping Mears is out at RCR next year, Harvick's contract is also up and i hope he's gone as well, whether it's driving for Stewart Haas next year or somewhere else.

And the story about each teammate approving of the move is right here:

http://sports.espn.go.com/rpm/nascar/cup/colu...

and Jimmie said it was simply a business move to make the team better and make it a successful four car operation and that if you needed a driver who can disect a problem that is causing a team to be barred from getting the the next level, then Mark Martin is the guy who can find what the problem is and help fix it.

the 5 team was the test team before the announcement, Rick Hendrick said himself that he is to blame, read up on that, this is a fact. What he meant by that was by making the 5 team the test team and the cause of the horrible setups and crappy cars Kellogs threatened to pull sponsorship, so he had to fire casey or loose sponsorship. If you agree that rick childress is the most respectable owner in nascar then you should trust his judgement by hiring casey. jeff burton wasn't much before childress and many people said the same things about him that you are about casey, now look at him, he's molded clint boyer into one of the best drivers in the game, I also agree with you that it sucks that clint boyer and gil martin were split up but there is no doubt in my mind that clint will make the chase. gil will fine tune casey as well.

First off, i knew Jeff Burton had lost nothing, and that, like Mark Martin, Roush lost focus on Burton and that it would be a perfect fit for Burton at RCR and everyone knows and has said that it was Burton that put Childress back on top. I do not for one second believe that Mears was the first option for RCR and even Cheerios did not want Mears and that's why drivers had to do musical chairs. The only reason Mears got that job is because the RCR ride was turned down by Bobby Labonte, Biffle, and McMurray. That was RCR's first options and Mears was one of the last options, and that's a fact. I respect Childress but every owner doesnt hit home runs with every driver. Johnny Sauter, Jeff Green, Dave Blaney, Robby Gordon, and Mike Skinner where are they now and how many races are they winning? Ill admit that RCR found a diamond in the wrath with Bowyer, but im not a Harvick fan and i think he's a failure and will be gone this year, along with Mears. Mears may have a three year contracts, but he also had another year with Hendrick, but that didnt stop Hendrick from doing the right thing and booting him! And if Kellogg's didnt want him there's good reason for that, he sux! And that's the same reason Cheerios didnt want him and if RCR had been willing to do the same for Biffle in giving him a top 35 locked car, such as Mears got from Bowyer although i guarantee you Bowyer's making more money now than he did with Jack, then RCR would've gotten a proven winner in Biffle instead of the joke known as Mears. That's what Mears car hood should say, instead of "JACK" it should say "JOKE" cause that's what they have behind the wheel.

I can respect that, however since I have vowed to apologize to you if casey doesn't make the chase this year, will you in turn apologize to me if he does LoL. I'm just a little byeast toward Casey because I grew up with him and you could not ask for a nicer guy, he would never talk bad about anyone no matter what, that's why I get a little purturbed when people talk crap about him, Harvick on the other hand, I hope he never finishes on the lead lap again.

I agree with you on Harvick, i hoped he went to Toyota when they came to Cup, and maybe he finally will after this year. Im not saying Mears is not a nice guy, let me make that clear, but im tired of this defense. I had knock out drag out fights with Yeley supporters, who even though he sucked on the race track and couldnt compete for wins in Nationwide or the Cup series and i felt he should be fired a long time ago, i heard all the Yeley fans keep argue how nice of a guy he and it's a stupid arguement!
I believe the number one and only reason a guy should have a ride is for talent. I hate Kyle Busch, Jeff Gordon, and Carl Edwards, but it's obvious they have talent and that's hard to argue on them not being in a Cup ride. I dont think a guy should have a ride for his last name, or because he's a good sell for sponsorship(as why Stremme was hired to replace Sterlin Marlin a couple years ago), and especially shouldnt have a ride because they are a nice guy, and Casey applies to two of three of those!
I can admit when im wrong, but very rare am i wrong when it comes to nascar. I think Stewart will struggle with his new team this year and will not win a race nor make the chase, same applies to Newman, i think Bobby Labonte made a poor decision in signing with HOF/Yates Racing and i think he'll continue to run like crap as he did at Petty Enterprises, and i think Mears will be fired at the end of the year from RCR.
Im pretty good at the drivers that should be fired finally gettin it. I said David Stremme should be fired from the 40 car and he was, and he'll be fired again from the 12 car after this year, i said Yeley would be fired from the 18 car and he was, i said Blaney needed to be fired from RCR's 07 ride a few years ago, he was, and i said Leffler needed to be gone from the 11 ride at JGR and he was, and i said that Mears needed to be fired at Hendrick, and of course he was! I always hit it right, maybe not as soon as id like, but i do always get it right!
I'll admit when im wrong. I admitted i was wrong in saying JGR would struggle last year in switching to Toyotas, although they did after starting the chase, but i thought last year Stewart would have to rely on his past champ because all three Toyotas at JGR would fall out of the top 35, but i wont be wrong about Mears, nice guy or not.

How many teams that are satellite teams succeed? When you are relying on another team to win, you will not. All you have to do is look at history and see that. Look at Yates, since they have depended on Roush and started recieving everything from them, they have not competed for wins and championships and even with Bobby Labonte that still is not going to change this year and Bobby Labonte, like Tony Stewart will also struggle this year. Look at Petty Enterprises before they merge. They depended on Evernham and still again were not threat for wins.
It's because guys like Hendrick, Roush, and GEM were not goin to give other teams stuff that'll beat their own cars. I dont care if they have a contract, lease or whatever, drivers will start complaining, as it did when Gibbs first came in and started with leasing Hendrick engines and Bobby Labonte finished ahead of Jeff Gordon in a race and Gordon went to Hendrick furious over him giving away their better stuff. Haas was an organization that was a pile of crap and will not be overturned in one year, i dont care who's behind the wheel!
I agree that Stewart is smart in hiring people familiar with Hendrick equipment such as Darian Grubb and Jeff Meendering, but to be a successful cup team, and if you look at the ones on top in RCR, Hendrick, Gibbs, and Roush, do they rely on anyone to build their engines? No, it's because they are all in house and although i admit it's a strong move to take on in building your own engines, to be a threat for championships, it has to be done.
I dont blame Stewart for relying on another team as Gibbs did and it's the best way to break in, but dont expect too much from Stewart and Newman in the win column and making the chase cause it wont happen this year. I also know that with sponsorship, something Haas was lacking last year, will help but still is not going to change my opinion that Stewart will win this year. MB2, who was later Ginn Racing and is now gone, had sponsorship from M&M's, Valvoline, and Army, and still only won two races when they were in business and never competed for championships, and even when Haas had sponsorship from Net Zero, Best Buy, and Yellow Freight, they still werent a threat.
I like Stewart and am happy to see him in a Chevy, and hope he has success being back in a bowtie, but i can tell you the Stewart fans have set the bar way too high and are going to be very disappointed this year.

In short, he's not in the HMS organization and the Hendrick car he'll be driving, is NOT going to be as strong or even the same HMS car that Jimmie, Mark, Jeff, and Dale Jr will be driving, it'll be more inferior. Tony Stewart is not driving for Hendrick, he's driving for his own team that is leasing hand me downs from Hendrick.

Just like i thought, you'll see that 5 car with Mark Martin pick right back up where Kyle Busch left it when he left after 2007! And along with that, you'll see that 07 Jack Daniel's car with Mears behind the wheel fall way off from where it was last year with Clint Bowyer behing that wheel! It'll be two years in a row where Mears will be given a car with two proven teams(Kellogg's car last year and JACK car this year) and two proven crew chiefs(Alan Guftason last year and Gil Martin this year) and he'll flop on his face as usual. Mark Martin, starting from the front row, and Clint Bowyer is the best running RCR Chevy of them all, and i can tell you Mears doesnt know how to drive a car well enough that he could've done the same as Mark Martin did today!
