I wouldn't mind sitting with Kenny, Darrel, Rusty but why would anyone really want to sit with Jimmy "excited in his own mind" Spencer? His comments on the Waltrip thing was totally out of line, after all he is a past tense driver without the credits to judge. To hear him talk is when I know it's time for a snack. Let Nascar do the judgement comments there mr. cigar.

There probably are people trying to get tickets to sit with Jimmy but folks will sit with anyone at a Nascar event. Out of touch with fans? He's just out of touch period. He has never been a fan favorite unless it was to see him get bumped out of the race but excuse me, that's what he usually did to others. I just can't figure where he thought it was his place to apologize to Toyota, the fans or make suggestions of how awful it was that someone cheated. Report what was done or what the penalty was is ok but he acted as though it just was something he could not bear. How many times did he or his crew cheat? Maybe he owes some back apologies to the fans huh?

Jimmy Spencer is a joke.I had bought tickets to sit with jimmy but he only showed up for 10 minutes and did not do anything he said he was going to do.He is a big wind bag who is full of himself.No one likes a lier.

We were terribly dissapointed that we had "Sit With Jimmy" Tickets for Busch & Cup and never once saw Jimmy or any hoopla to do with the promotion. We were in our seats at least an hour before the race, freezing, and never saw any sign of him. We expected more from him, I guess. Big Mistake!!!!!

Are there others out there that has had enough of the guys on the speed stage saying " These are my people." When you meet them out in public they turn their nose up like they are hollywood stars.

They probably get tired of every whining, sniveling person that believes they are entitled to an autograph or picture. Just because someone is famous or you happen to have the number that is on the side of their car permanently tattooed to your ass doe not mean they owe you the time of day.
Papparrazi, I believe is what hollywood celebrities call it. I guess in Nascar it overzealous, self righteouos fans are the same thing.
