He will remain at HMS, but will be sweeping the floors at the shop and cleaning the champagne off of Mark Martin's car after the races. Buckshot Jones will be driving the 88 car and joonyer will be suited up and be standing in the pits to do interviews as if he were the driver. NASCAR and the TV networks have worked this out to ensure the t-shirt and hot dog sales do not diminish.

Junior is staying at Hendrick. In fact they had one of HMS top guys on and he said that they are all very pleased with how Junior and Lance and performing and they expect them to be competitive the rest of the year.

I don't see Hendrick letting Junior go. That guy is a license to print money :)

if that HMS top guy is pleased with a 22.2 avg finish for Jr since Lance became crew chief he should be fired along with Jr

Like me and apparently unlike you, I am sure the fine folks at HMS have seen the way that Junior and Lance have been improving and how the finishes don't reflect that.

I'm sure that the powers to be at HMS are very happy with jr's tee shirt and die casts sales.

I am also sure that the powers to be at HMS are very happy with the performance of the 5, 24 and 48 teams, which have been outstanding, not to mention Tony's 2 teams, which have exceeded all expectations.

Nope, I was talking about how he runs in the top ten consistent only to have his day screwed up by a blown motor or him getting wrecked.

Did you know that 9 times out of 10 a blown motor is the fault of the driver!!

It is called overeating the engine! You don't see JJ, KB, or JG, do it that often, but it sure happens a lot to Jr!

Dew, I have to ask...are you a paid Jr advocate? Like a paid blogger who goes around spreading Jr hype? I have heard about paid blogger for Obama, it sounds like you are a Jr paid blogger.

They pay you 9 bucks an hour for "Jr-hyping" I think you deserve more! For selling your soul!
