Some times I wonder if his excuses, seemingly "don't care" attitude, and always finding something to do away from the nascar scene is a cover up for his being disappointed and embarrassed on how the 19 team is going (an act or cover up).I wasn't trying to stir up a hornet's nest when I asked how big his fan base is--I was just curiuos.
Elliott became my favorite because he seemed to have the determination it takes to succeed in NASCAR, but now he seems to not care. Quite frankly I'm sick of his excuses and I don't buy into the "Dodges suck" deal either. Maybe they do but there are guys who get crappy cars and they seem to make it work for them whereas Elliott just limps around the track in the back over an over again.
We all can surely admitt that it is TUFF when things just keep going wrong (little things, big things, stupid things, mechanical things, family things, etc) can all string together for quiet a while sometimes.
OR maybe I'm just being a Polly Anna (okay, I can't spell that name). But I have a habbit of rooting for the underdog.
