Yeah, reflecting on being the WORST DRIVER IN NA$CRAP, PERIOD! Maybe he should have a swansong season where he simply rides around at the back of the pack and gets lapped all day. Oh I forgot, he did that last year!

So long ya talentless huckster!

He needs to "reflect" a little on his......"drunk-driving "......also, before he actually hurts himself or someone else. He has been very lucky on the two instances we actually know about, even though both were pretty much swept under the carpet by POS, JAPCAR, the JAPCAR-media, the NC Court System, and King Brian.

Mikey Waltrip is everything that is wrong with NASCAR. A life long grid filler who was able to keep more deserving driving out just because he could shill someones product. It's a disgrace!

You don't stay around NASCAR, especially at the Cup level, if you aren't a better driver than the above posters seem to think. No, he isn't a great driver, never was, but he wasn't an awful one, either. If you look back over his long career, he has been solidly in the front half of the pack except for the past few seasons (and, oh yeah, won the Daytona 500 twice, which is hard to do by accident). Not everybody can be a champion. As for his talent as a pitchman, well, sponsors expect the drivers of the cars they pay for to sell their products, and I'd rather watch someone who's good at it than most of those guys standing there like sticks and woodenly reading lines off the prompter. He's also been building a foundation for life after driving, and very few athletes in any sport have been bright enough to do that. If you're tired of watching him on the track, fine, you don't have to any more, so why waste your time abusing him?

Since 1988 when plates were mandated, to win Daytona or Talladega means you missed the wrecks, whoopty-do...Win at a roadcourse if you want to impress real fans. You clueless wal-nuts are delusional and grasp those Daytona wins as if they mean something...LMAO!!! GET-A-CLUE...POS is a "NEVER-WAS"

Just look at this hill-jack's over-all record. Four wins and over 750 Cup starts?

We all know that he is the Billy Mays of JAPCAR, so what?

Robby was so correct! "POS couldn't drive a nail through a frog's ass!" Bowyer was correct, also! LMAO!

For the past couple of years, POS usually put a sub into that JAPA/CRAPA 55 at a road course, didn't he?

How about that great job of driving, over on the Dubai Road Course? That was funny-as-hell, POS destroying that $200000+ Ferrari, when he ran into some other car and wall-banged the pit wall. Give POS a wall..........and he WILL find-it!

LMFAO at that Dubai-run a few weeks ago!

I bet he's reflecting on how lucky he was to get out of that famous Grey Goose induced sock stumble back to the flop house (pool room) where he hid from the cops after winning the utility pole position in the upside-down Landcruiser. I guess the gas pedal must have stuck...

Why would you bash one of the nicest drivers out there and puts his own money back into the sport.
