I think its interesting that gibbs doesn't think BUDWIESER is "family image" sponser but his driver hauling his (then)married tramp (HO~DEPOT) girlfriend to nascar events bodes well for family image and values . JMO but that's sorta hypicritical thing to say ...Bud does alot for both sports he is involved with....

I think Ginn is wasting his time. Jr wants an ALREADY established organization and it ought to be obvious that Jr doesnt want to go there cause he, Jr along with Kelly, has already talking to other owners and taken tours of other facilities(hearing Joe Gibbs so far) and Ginn hasnt talked to Jr in person, but Jr does not want a work in progress organization, the best driver there, Mark Martin, would only be his part time teammate, no other driver there has done worth a damn, they havent won a race since 2004, and Mark has only done impressive in races featuring the Car of Yesterday, their COT program is the worst one of all the Chevy teams, even behind Haas, and that's the car that'll be in the series full time. I can tell you, Jr wants to go by who's got the best equipment and where he'll fit in best and im getting sick and tired of everybody thinkin that Budweiser will dictate who Jr drives for, JR will decide where he goes and Budweiser isnt the only sponsor he has out there chasing him. The article even says that JGR could be the leading candidate. Ginn may have been able to BUY Mark Martin, but he isnt goin to be as lucky to get Jr and in the end he shouldnt be suprised when Jr decides to go to another elite team to his inferior one. It reminds me of Ganassi last year when Casey bolted his organization to go to Hendrick and said he completely understood the decision and couldnt blame him, i hope Ginn can take it just as well!
Getting a little worry,Jr in 07? He do have other sponsor after him so if he do end up their it wouldn't be surprise if Bud don't follow. He do want to run for an establish team and I think that JGR will be a good fit for him. Now any way.....

"It reminds me of Ganassi last year when Casey bolted his organization to go to Hendrick and said he completely understood the decision and couldn't blame him, I hope Ginn can take it just as well! " Did you just say that, so you do agree with me, that Casey never had the good equipment in Gannassi! I knew you only had mouth!.:P

I would like to hear Gibb's thoughts on that. But, I don't think that'll ever happen.

And no, im not getting worried, im just sick of everybody thinkin that Ginn and Jr would be a good fit. i think Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson fans are threatened by Jr and feel that if he goes to Ginn, he wont be competitive because their subpar to other teams and that if he goes to RCR or specifically Gibbs, and that he'll knock Johnson and Gordon off the top spots!
I hope he doesnt go to gibbs I cant stand him or his drivers JR is better off with Childress better team and better people there.I just wish Theresea wasnt so stuburn and selfish SR built that company for his kids and by all rights it should remain thiers Im sure if SR was here things would be different. I loved SR and I think its sad it has gone this way.

Well, he also already runs Bud and Busch series decals on the side of the car as it is, but i guess to him it's okay to run it on the side, but it's not okay to have it on the hood, what a hypocrite!
Good point! Maybe if they just put it in small letters it'll be okay. If he felt that strongly about it like the Petty's do then he wouldn't comptete in the Bud shootout. But guess it's okay to do that and even win the thing this year. Just doesn't make sense.

I think the best solution for Jr would be to go with Hall of Fame racing, which is a satelite team for JGR.. all the same stuff.. Tony Raines has had cars that could ride up front.. Jr could be the big dog.. they would love Budweiser.. all would be good.

My thoughts exactly!

But...you know...Tony is JGR's money maker.

I'll have to tell my brother he doesn't display a FAMILY IMAGE b/c he drinks Budweiser. I wonder what his wife and children will think?! geez.

Must suck to announce you need a new team to drive for and everyone hangs the no vacancy. JGR says he cant come with Bud. Hendrick has no room.

When you want someone you make room.

This was up on a public website the night she was in VL with Tony, and Spencer told the world her name was Tara, his gf and she changed Tony for the better.

Nice wedding ring. Maybe it was Ok cause Tara was family oriented, she was just oriented into the Gentry family not the Stewart one.

I'm sure Jr will have a good ride next year. I just think if Gibbs wants to run a race team then he needs to think about what is best for the whole organization and how much of a benefit Jr could bring to the entire team. This whole thing, along with Hendricks saying there's no room could just be their way of trying to keep things quiet until the deal is done.

Funny drug war when the addictive killer alcohol is advertised on the cars kids watch racing.

Alcohol is not a killer. People are killers. Drugs are killers.

But you have to really be trying hard to be killed by consuming alcohol. Just like you can killed by drinking water.

No you dont.

Its simple.

Drink. Drive.

JGR is against everything alcohol represents, the stigma around it, therefore they dont want to promote it, especially in a sport many children enjoy, their not against the ingredients itself. Your taking it too literal.

Alcohol is not a killer, huh? Maybe you could tell that to my wife and 2 baby girls who were killed 8 months ago when a drunk driver hit them head on. Then you can talk to my uncle who died last year from liver problems brought on by alcohol use.

Alcohol kills thousands of people every year. Perhaps that is why Gibbs doesn't want to promote the sale of alcohol by fielding a car with a huge alcohol advertisement on it. A driver with class wouldn't be caught driving a car sponsored by them either. which may explain why Jr is in the Bud car.
