This is a joke right. Anybody else wins when in his posiion it counts as a win and thats OK, but if he wins like this it does'nt count. His losing streak is over so get over it.

That's what I'm thinking.

Anyone reading the story and paying attention to the date can clearly see this story was posted before the race on Sunday morning.

Hey, with NASCAR's aid, it could happen many more times.

Now before you get too mad, I like Jr very much. But the rescinded penalties at the Coca Cola 600 was a low blow to all the drivers who had to take their penalties. I hope NASCAR does not do that again. For anyone.

Would you like to put a wager down? A couple weeks ago he wasn't going to win at all according to some. But he did.......... Are you on of them that said that?!?

Well I as a Jr. fan thought he'd not win at all. I'm glad he got a win though. I do not think he'll take another 76 races to win again though. I think he'll probably win yet another one this year, hopefully. I don't think he'll win more than 2 though and I do not for the life of me think he'll win the championship. But hey if he proves me wrong I won't be too sad about it. LOL!

You are one hostile person. I have to remember this thread is on the Jr board also, I'm not dealing with the same people over here.

BTW if you can't take a joke you've got a serious problem.

Ohh and I'm still a firm believer if he doesn't get rid of Tony Jr he's not going to do a whole lot of winning. I am a realist and did not think in his first year of running with a new team that he would win. There is a learning curve and transition to be done. But it's all good that he won, just says he learns quicker than others.

Grow up a little more Patti a wager isn't a threat to beat your face in it's an offer to put your money where you mouth is. I thought the Joke was funny too and I own a lot ot little E shirts, Caps and Cars but I own as many by Tony stewart plus many others. I will own as much by Brian vickers , Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards in the near future. I'm simply a fan of the guy willing to go as fast as and as long as he and the car are capable of going. I will wager on different men for different reasons every weekend with no malice. Dale is a more singled based fan than a teem sport fan if his name say's anything.

When Fat Back McSwain was available Tresa Passed on him which would have put Dale in a position to win the first Year. The Eurichs were never Bright enough to run a teem beyond Bush or Nation Wide as they have the car totally screwed by the middle of every race. He should never have been given the choice who's on his pit crew as Roush teems do. Little E has a problem with his temper and they leave the cousins in the Cheif Box Cuz McSwain would have Drug him out of the car and educated him after a few races of getting Cussed like a Dog. Daryl Waltrip is the only one the say Eurichs were smart.

Again another vicious response to my post. Maybe you're the one who needs to grow up, because responding so callously to my response is immature. Also, Dale felt the need to challenge me over a joke, that's his/her problem not mine.

I like Jr. I'm not a die-hard like alot of people, tho.
I never really thought he would get a win in his first yr a HMS. I thought he would place well, but with no wins. No, I don't believe he will win the championship either. He will be in the top 10 tho.
I'm glad he did win last wk-end tho. He was so damn happy it was hard not to be happy for him too.

You need to talk to Mike Brudenell. He wrote the story and added the top line after the race.
Don't get all worked up over nothing...

If Fat Back is such a hot crew chief why is he not chiefing I saw him at 2 races running up and down pit row looking for another job.I was talking to one of the drivers he said he wanted to spend more time with family and now he wants a job. I don't think he has one yet.
