Here's one that hopes everyone of these people success and do went. HOWEVER, reality says that most of them are doing it just as a park and ride. Managed well, whether you have a sponsor or not, good money can be made this way. There was and still is, a lot of first edition COTs on the market. These rolling chassis can be picked up pretty cheap, throw in a leased drive train and you got a racecar. If you happen to already own a hauler, make an investment in some replacement parts and enough people to run a pit crew and you're pretty much in the racing business. It's diffently a little more technical that I have discripted it but it wouldn't take a brain surgent to pull it off.

I heard this on "NASCAR Now" just yesterday & all I could think was, "This guy doesn't know when to quit! This won't last long at all."

I appreciate Jeremy's effort, but I REALLY don't think this will work at all, but we'll see I guess...

James, while you are giving out the free English lessons, perhaps you should take another look at the book.

Your statement of, he has been a top 20 car, reeks of ignorance.

(1) Oh great English major, please learn to use a capital letter to start your sentence.

(2) Jeremy could not be a top 20 car unless he is the product of the mating of male and female cars. The correct statement would be, He has been the DRIVER of a top 20 car.

James, My Man, next time you wish to correct the spelling of another, please, put the statement is correct sentence form.

Actually, Mr. BOZO THE CLOD, no, I was just pointing out that people who life in glass houses should not cast stones.

Now, I will assume that even an AOL idiot will be able to understand that.

O.M.G. Buddy get your facts straight. the reason he was fired from e.m. was nothing to do with being a liar or a cheat, check your facts moron.

#1 pretty boy Kasey Kane was given mayfields cars, pitcrew, and crew chief. all because the girls and queer guys like him.

#2 when the 19 team was failing to improve Mayfield many times made the comment that they needed help from evernham, yet ray was to busy working with his little honey in the truck series.

#3, he wasn't a liar about the affair, dodge made evernham cut ties with erin crocker's nascar driving or they threated to pull dodge support from evernham.

#4, what has the 19 done since mayfield departed. i'm a sadler fan all way back to the wood brothers, but man he hasn't done anything since he left robert yates to go to evernham.

evernham motorsports is the liar and cheats. take a bigger picture look at it, sadler signed an extension to his contract and yet they tried to replace him in december of last year with allmendinger, only by court filing by sadler did he keep his ride.

well see down the road, but with allsport being not only the full year sponser for mayfield, but also part owner in the team, they are going at it for the long haul. the money and talent are there to compete.

that's for sure, he's not a fat boy that wines and crys over everything that happens. mayfield has said that he made mistakes, that's something you'll never hear from stewart. it's always gonna be someone elses fault.

Actually, Mr. Who, gosh, I thought you were on first base according to Buddy Abbot and Lou Costello.

Jeremy Mayfield WAS fired for going public with what should have been an in house situation about Evernham and Crocker. Do you think you could keep your job if you went to the paper and told them YOUR BOSS was having an affair and with who?

Jeremy Mayfield is a somewhat over age, under producing driver who had his day in the sun and Mr. Who, that sunny day has come and gone.

I can hear the announcers now, and now qualifying for the last spot in the go or go home group of cars will be the all sport, sports drink car of Jeremy Mayfield, attempting to knock off the NOS sports drink car of that all time great Stanton Barrett. Which one of these cars will earn the right to start 42nd and earn the right to race for 15 laps and then park the car?

To Voice of reality.

I don't know what you have against Jeremy, but he is one heck of a driver. Go back to when he made the chase two years in a row. That was when you had to be in the top 10 in points(not the top 12 which was changed because of you know who could not do it). I know look at Kasey Kahne, how many chases has he made? Take a look at when Kahne even won 6 races. Where did he finish in points. I realize Jeremy has not won as many races, but he sure was until Evernham gave his pit crew and cheif to Kahne a HELL OF A LOT MORE consistant on have a good finish than Kasey. Don't get me wrong I think Kasey is a good driver, and the fact that he was given Jeremy's crew, was mostly due to sponsors wanting the younger more apealing face to their product. It is a shame racing has come down to that instead of talent. I don't think that a driver forgets how to drive in 3 months which is what seemed to happen during the off season of 2005-2006 for Jeremy. I stand my ground in that Jeremy made the chase two years in a row when is was the to ten in points. That alone says it all. P.S I almost forgot to mention that he is one of the few drivers who can say that they were able to move Earnhardt out of the way on the last last of a race to win.

Voice of bullshit:

Ray was too busy having his head up krockers ass then being involved with the team. He wasnt showing up to the races and basically gave mayfield the shaft after he made the chase in 2005.. He gave pretty kasey basically the whole 19 team with his crew chief, pitcrew and chassis... How would you feel If all you had the prior year was gone, woudnt it piss you off? right after another succesful year? I would voice out to, thats riduclous. If mayfield has good eqiuptment and is in a good envirement like in 2005 and 2004 he can succeed. It will be hard for him the first couple years with his own team but if waltrip or robby can do it why cant mayfield.. Hes better then both.. So go **** yourself and stop being a douche.

Matt, the best thing to do, is just ignore this troll. This person has no mission other than to name call, insult, and twist other people's words into an argument of his choosing.

Where do you get the idea most of the people on here are Mayfield fans. 5 wins in close to 500 starts, that isn't exactly setting the world on fire considering he has been lucky enough to have driven for some top teams. I hope for Jeremy's sake that Gary Smith has the heavy end of this investment in futility. Of course, you can make some money in park and ride if you're low on the pride pole.

Much like your namesake, Jeremy, you feel the need for personal attack, however, this does not alter the fact that Jeremy talked himself out of a first class ride and now is relegated to a one car, used equipment, start and park car. I will hope that IF Jeremy would have chosen the written word for his avenue of attack, he would have superior, to you, spelling abilities.

I offer up for your consideration, little ditties like, your wasnt, instead of the proper Wasn't.
The old faithful standby of the slow of thought, pitcrew as an incorrect one word, instead of the proper pit crew. The ever stupid, woudnt. Now we will get to the area of Jeremy's eqiuptment and envirement, did you perhaps mean Equipment and Environment?

Not only is this mental midget an attack oriented person, it is also relegated to poor 7th grade level English to attack with.

This one is a true example of YOUR tax dollars at work in public schools.
