Well JJ it just sucks that they have left you go, but I do hope that you find a better team to race for, You are a darn good driver and will always be a favorite with me. When Tony needed you to get in that car when he was sick you did a heck of a job until you got caught up in a wreck. Keep ya head held high I am sure a better ride will come along soon!!!!!!!!!!

I used to be a fan of Brad Coleman ... But, not anymore ... He went to JGR & turned into a punk ... Then left when they couldn't give him a full-time Nationwide ride this year and he went back to the team he used to drive for, but it's got new owners & the team sucks ...

Now, Brad's taken JJ's ride ...

HoF over-reacted and threw the baby out with the bathwater instead of trying to replace the crew chief / car chief / crew ...

HoF is no better than JGR ... They both dumped JJ instead of making changes to HELP him & the cars ...

Screw you HoF & JGR ... You suck!!!

And how many races in the cup series has Brad driven in?????? Just putting another Rookie out there who hardly has any experience in the COT. I think they should have klept JJ and made other changes he is a good driver and he proved that when he crawled in the car for Tony when he was sick.

Guess the proof is in the Michigan pudding. At the very least, Coleman will qualify for the race, something that JJ has forgotten how to do.

It appears that Tammy hates WHOEVER JJ races for...

I have to agree that they jumped the gun by ousting JJ in the middle of the season. If any of you ever listen to JJ and his crew chief during the races, the crew chief never agrees with what JJ wants to do, and ends up screwing everything up. JJ didn't think it was a great idea to take 2 tires instead of 4 during a pit strategy at The BrickYard. Did they listen? And he went from 12th to 25th in no time. He wanted to pit toward the end at Pocono...instead he ran out of gas. Listen to your driver....don't replace him in the middle of a season! Replace your crew chief first!

I listen to JJ every week and your absolutely correct. And it certainly wasn't JJ's fault that he ran out of gas with 5 LAPs to go. Or the Water bottle incident. And when you are talking about the Daytona or Talladega qualifying, Its about CARS AND MOTORS! Not Driver.
Having that extra pressure of qualifying in is a tough deal.
It just seems like the racing gods have forgotten about JJ the last few years. I hope that someone picks him up soon and the Gods shine on him, because we will miss out on so much as fans if he doesn't get a ride. When he is successful in a car, there is NO ONE more fun to watch.

I think I will be off watching another series till JJ gets another ride. If he doesn't- then Bye NASCAR. you've been pretty boring the last five years anyways.
