Pretty sure I'm getting sick of reading the same crap excuses.

They should take reality out of the equation and set the 4 hendrick boys (with equal setups) in networked driving sims and see if he just has no instinct to race. Its costing too much to try to figure out his problem in real cars. The only bad thing is we wouldn't be able to see the results of such an analysis.

What the hell would that prove? Jr would win, hands down, because he's busy sim racing while the other three are working out, studying race notes, and just generally making themselves better at driving REAL race cars.

Jr. doesn't need a new crew chief, he needs 2 things. A wife/girlfriend and a shrink. The wife/girlfriend would corral his childish of track behavior (hanging out with his "Posse"). For God sake, what is he, 36 or 38 years old? It's time to grow up. As one other person said, he needs to dedicate himself 100% to racing 24/7 365 if he wants to win. That's what any great athlete does. As for the shrink, there's something going on in his head that's not clicking. There are many sports psychologists that have done wonders for many athletes. He needs to try something because he has shown he's got the talent by winning as many races as he has in the past. He's definately got issues.

Another repetitive story about poor Jr. Jr is 35 years old, he's never been a contender, he's on the down side of his career, enough with Jr, he's just an average driver in a very good car, and a good team. Jr is destined to be another Kyle Petty or Mikey Waltrip.

The author of this article is *RETARDED*

Dale jr is turning 36 this year. Gives him 4-5 more years in the Cup Series.

The rest of dales career will looking something like this:

Season '11 and '12 in the #88. Mediocre mid-pack seasons. Outside shot a race win or two, most like on a restrictor plate track.

Season '13 Dale will leave Hendrick and the #88 what happens afterward is up for speculation. The buisness man in me thinks dale will finish his career with RCR. Dale will reintroduce the #3 to cup. They will call it a "tribute" but dale will really only be prepping the car for Austin Dillon. Dale will do 1-2 seasons until Dillon is ready to take over. They will make a fortune off merchandise. after that dale will run part time. End of racing career.

The true idiots are the ones that have to resort to name calling when presented with a viable argument. They lack the mental competence to come up with something interesting to debate the argument that is presented, and thats why you get drivel like you see below. Sad, really.

You may want to try smaller words next time, as it's easier to comprehend to the "true idiots".

He should go back to running in his own Nationwide car, that way Tony Sr. can bounce him on his knee and tell him once upon a time stories and make it all better.
