Jr will not win this season because he and the 5 will be working on set ups and testing for their team mates who are in the Chase. Even Jr admitted he will be doing things to help JJ and JG. You don't win races when you're testing or are the guinea pig.

The races that jooonyer crossed the finish line first, was not impressive at all. Michael Waltrip had never won a single race in over 500 starts until he got behind the wheel of the DEI cars that jooonyer was also driving. MW crossed the finish line first more times at the Daytona 500 than jooonyer did. Point is that you could have put a monkey in those DEI cars and crossed the finish line first. To prove my point, how many combined races has jooonyer and MW won since they left DEI?
The 24 team won 4 championships BEFORE the 48 team was ever created and ALL the teams have the exact same engines, chassis, engineers and have an open book to setups every week at the track, etc. etc. etc. So some lame azz excuse that jooonyer isn't at the 248 shop is the reason for his failure is laughable.
So if Gordon finishes 3rd in points in 2009 and has as many or more top 5 and top 10 finishes as anyone in the sport the past year, you don't think that is very successful? Gordon gets more top 5's in one year than jooonyer has since he's been at HMS with the SAME equipment.
Give up with the excuses and asinine theories already!!!
Oh... So I am to assume from that masterful piece of logic that YOU could have also won those races, championships, what have you???

It is amazing to me that you think this sport is that simple. The WORST Truck, Nationwide or Cup driver can outdrive you in his sleep. You get to steer your opinion on computer, while the guys you throw pots shots at get to risk their lives for your satisfaction.

Professional athletes at the highest levels are representative of hundreds to thousands of guys who do the same thing as lesser levels. To get to Truck, Nationwide and Cup is one thing. To STAY there a while, let alone even win ONE race is quite another.

You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but as everyone knows who reads your nonsense, you don't have two Busch Series trophies in your home, or a Daytona 500 trophy among about 80 other NASCAR trophies. What you have is a dartboard with Dale Earnhardt Jr's picture on it.

Do us all a favor...

Go and start YOUR career in NASCAR - we'll give you ten years. Come back to us after that period and let us know if you have anywhere near as many poles, wins and championships. Let us know how easy it is.

If you are not willing to do that, then just be satisfied with being another "expert" without one day behind the wheel of a racecar.

BTW... You're a FUNNY guy!

hey booojoonyer im sure you can outrun jooonyer the only prob is you dont have the famous last name to get everything handed to you, so it might take time since you have to work your way up, but then we can get you a bigger plate, rack up some plate wins, then change your name to petty or something, then you can roll around in 20th and win mpd awards like crazy, check out over88ted.com i think it would be a perfect sponsor, put you in a hendrick car with lance i bet you can outrun that hack no talent sob jr

Mark, your logic has some holes in it. Most NASCAR (big three) drivers started out the same as other people, at least most all male children, they all think that they are the best drivers and can or could have won at racing at any level. The big thing about NASCAR drivers is that they are willing to pay the price, take the time and in most cases deny themselves of the other things in life that get in the way of a person wishing to make a career out of driving racecars. I have driven race cars on local levels for a portion of my life and I am of the firm belief that I could win agains many of the so called profesional drivers had I wished to go that route and got the breaks so many of them get through their hard work. If you drive any type of racing vehicle and do not feel that way, you should not be driving. Take Denny Hamlin for instance, I know that you will not believe it, however, for two years I drove local NASCAR races and the man who owned my car was the same man as the one who was Denny Hamlin's original crew chief when he started racing. Denny was about out of luck, out of money and out of a ride when a local big time Late Model Stockcar owner gave him a break allowing him to drive his car at South Boston Speedway on a weekly basis and brought him to the attention of JGR.
Denny, when starting out, was no better or worse that many other drivers racing go karts and Friday night cars at South Side Speedway, the only difference was that his father, Dennis, was willing to put his business, Hamlin Trailer Sales and Repairs, on the line to further his son's potential career. Now I can tell you about the other side of this fight and talk about The Late Kevin Grubb.
