I hope your right on this one considering Tony is presenting the Goody's Cool Orange Chopper(Orange County Chopper)that someone won for his foundation auction. Think the chopper went for like $63,000 plus. Plus I beleive he will be running a diffrent paint scheame as well for this race to match the bike. Think its light blue and a light orange and has goody's cool orange on the hood. Not sure only seen the car once on JRG web page, but that was a while back. As for Casey Mears hey hope he gets a win as well good guy and all. IMHO thou I have a feeling the #25 team will be left behind just like it was for Vickers. There is a big picking order at Hendrick's stables.(1.#24 Jeff "Golden Boy" Gordon (2.#48 Jimmy "Do No Wrong" Johnson (3.#5 Klye ("Can't Think Of Anything")Busch, and well last whoever drives the # 25. Seeing Vickers run in the # 84 when the car been working he's been pretty good in it. Just been crashed out in others peoples mess and all. Thou trying to start a new team and with a new car manufactor its a rough road even for vet drivers. With the exception of Ginn with Mark Martin. But Joe Neimacheck (spelling) really laid the ground work for the car to run every race this year for the 1st 5 races. Now its up to Smith and Martin to keep it up there. Witch they have. Feel bad for Joe thou but atleast he reallized it was better for the over all Ginn team.
Thanks Big20, I think Casey is a good guy too. I am aware of the pecking order at Hendrick Motorsports, that's kind of a given...and the history of the #25 car. I'm still not planning on "jumping ship" anytime soon.

I hope I'm right Evan-I'm picking Tony as my "A driver" in my fantasy league for this week-end & Denny as my "B Driver"...JGR better not let me down, I could use the points!

Dupont24-There are some people on here who like to say things to stir up trouble-noone else wants to argue with her, so she goes looking for a fight with someone...you should be able to figure out who they are. Friendly advice, just ignore them-it's not worth the effort of a response. Congrats to Jeff on the 3rd place finish, no matter what happened to the other cars-he was there in the end when it counted. And leading the points also...
I speak the truth..it was a shame that not only Tony but also Kasey and Elliot had trouble..

You are correct. He was there at the end when it counted and I think 4 Nextel Cup trophies say he knows a thing or two about racing...:)
I didn't say that he didn't know racing.. I just hate it when, like the 500, the wrong cars win... the guys who were not contenders until the good cars had trouble... I hate that cuz in case you have not noticed, Tony is good at the start of every race and goes South.. he does not need cautions or lucky dogs to win races... that's all I'm saying.. they say that Jeff got his car better, but Tony was still a tenth faster every lap without any adjustments... it is sad that a hex screw screwed Tony... that's all I'm saying... this week

LMAO...I read Mindy's post this morning asking you to please take that picture off...PUT IT UP, I want to see...lol. You always have great pics.
I was reading on Casey's website that they are going to start building the #25 cars based on JJ's set up. Apparently they like their cars set up the same way, and his have been set up more on Brian's style. It looks like the #48 team is going to try and help the #25 out with some things, I'm hoping it works...it's been a frustrating season so far.
Happy for Casey that he is such good friends with JJ.. he will no doubt do better than Brian did in that car.

Good for you staying with your driver. I'd like to see a hendrick's car other then the 48, or 24 in the Victory lane. Last time it happened. What a dirty team mate spun me out of his way and all.(JJ) its called racing and he was helping you out pushing you down the track. anyways not going there.# hope to see Casey there in Victory lane this year. Unless he going up anagist Tony then all bets are off, and I like to see #20 parked there then the #25.

As long as Jimmy Spencer does pick him he'll be fine. Everytime it seems someone picks him for Speed channel's "NASCAR Raceday" He ends up having a bad day of things. Seem like Denny Hamlin had the same problem. One of the guys picked him.

Well, Kyle has made it there a couple of times-and has a shot at making it a couple of more. Casey, well like I said earlier..I'll settle for consistent lead lap finishes :)

Something tells me Tony will Jimmy to knock it off, he doesn't need the Spencer curse working against him!

Thanks, I appreciate anyone's good wishes for Casey...he could use the support. People are going on his message board and bashing him for the rough start this season-drives me crazy!

Dont worry what others say, casey is a respectable driver, as long as you know that, your fine, and he will be just fine, it is hard for me to route for a hendricks car, but casey helps, since terry labonte left, I havent cared to much for hendricks, but go mears
