IT makes no sense; There is no way that Waltrip could have thought he could get away with something like that! I mean it is not like we are stuck back in the seventees! Inspite of Mike's knack for levity, it is a cover for the fact that he is no dummy. he is a smart shrewed man, how else could he have kept up a Nascar career for so long without winning any rases? It is because like his older brother he is wiely like a fox. I can't beleive anyone could belive that Mike would do something so stupid. he is too smart for that. Yes he is responsible, as team owner and leader, but it was not something that happened in that garage area that he is guilty of. It is/was his lack of judgement in hiring the fool who did do it. Something that he can hardly be blamed for. it all comes down to lack of faith, the person who did this thought they could wrestle ultimate control of there fate away from God. Either that or it was sabatoge, which is probably as likely as anything else. think about it! Toyota comong to Nascar is akin to Abraham Lincoln mooning General Robert E Lee to these southern good ol boys

One of his own Camrys put him out on a bump. Everyone thought Mayfield was going to be the hot Toyota but it turned out to be Vickers. I've said it all along, if any of the Toyotas does well this year it will be Vickers. Stick a fork in Mayfield, he's done.

I agree with you! I am so happy Brian Vickers made the race. I also like DJ but he didn't even made a lap to qualified, out of six past provisional he can use he has already used up two.
