Pretty easy to do when there's only 2 of them and the other one is missing races left and right.

Awww a Jealous Jerk, How about attesting it to the fact that Joey is improving?

I didn't take it personally; I figured she was making fun of me for stating the obvious. I didn't like the kid at first, too much hype. But he is proving himself, don't you think?

He's done good. He's stayed out of the way and watched and learned. That's great, because there have been some in the past that got in the way and caused trouble for those actually racing for a championship. The kid is probably earning a lot of respect in the garage.

Tony calls him the kid too. I thought that was amusing.

A little over sensative are ya?? I never said he wasn't improving or anything about his driving. Just it's easy to win rookie of the year when you're really the only one who is realistically in contention for it....

Tony is old enough to be Joey's dad. Tony will be 38 this Wednesday.

You have to admit that Joey came into the sport (Sprint Cup) about a year earlier than I think he or anybody expected him to. Tony's move opened that door a little earlier than expected. The good news is he has taken full advantage of this situation and has looked very good. He has a good chance of finishing in the top 20 this year. Not bad for such a young kid.

What I don't understand is why some (not all) Stewart fans have something against Joey. He didn't take Stewarts ride afterall.

I do not dislike him because he's driving the 20 car. Tony made the decision to leave is the only reason he is in the car. I dislike him because the media made him out of be the savior of NASCAR and the best thing that ever happened to racing. The kid believed his own hype and the beginning of this season was a nice wake up call for him. Especially since he was the one in the back riding around with all the crap or was it junk.

I, for one, Think the Kid's improved a lot since then, and I do not think he believed his own hype. JMO.
