Jacques, you are a great driver and you will finish the race in the points. Please kick asses and Jeff Gorfon.

I can't say that I blame the Chase drivers - he's new and doesn't know how it works in a Nextel Cup setting and a rookie mistake could cost the others big time.

I think Dega is too wild to be the place to get your start but, he says he's gonna stay back and just observe so, let's just hope he sticks to that and doesn't try to be hero.

He finished, he showed he's got class to go to the back, he's matured alot in the last 10 + years :)

He did a great job out there today! That Dega is a hard race to start your first Cup race at! He will get the respect in the garage for playing it cool today!

Very smart move with him today, making the decision to take it easy and start in the back. He showed class. Good run too, almost a top 20!

Jacque drove an intelligent race today. Sorry to see him have that little glitch right there at the end but no harm, no foul. He kept his nose clean and didn't do anything foolish. Great Job.

I was listening to his scanner and he lost his ear piece at one time, then when he found it his crew like was yelling at him, I was like wtf? But anyways he's really matured alot in the old days he wouldn't of started in the back when he didn't have to. I'm pretty impressed.

Great run, today. He proved to be much less of a hazzard on the track, than Wall-Banger.

I didn't see him tear-up several cars after a "trademark" wall-bang----from Wall-Banger.

Wow, he even scored higher that Wall-Banger and it was his first Cup-Race. Another feather in Bill Davis's cap, going into 2008, as Ohio Dave just might be top-35, if he can keep that Toy-let running ahead of the Woods Bros. Blue Oval, for a few more races, even we know Awesome Bill will be back in the seat for some more CP action in the #21.

Where have you been? Every Robby-fan in the world calls that moron who owns Motormouth Motorsports, drives the Toy-let, CRAPA #55----"Wall-Banger" or "POS" or "Hair"!

Got it?

Oh that's probably why I don't know, I'm a Foyt fan first and Robby drove for Foyt. Therefore I'm around people who are mostly supportive of Robby Gordon as I am myself. I think Robby Gordon is a great drive who can drive anything. But then again once they drive for Foyt their "in" my ok book for life :) Sorry.

Yepper---we all kind of feel sorry for POS, because he just can not drive a race car anymore. It is really time for him to hang-it-up and be just an owner for Motormouth Motorsports. He is basically, an accident, looking for someplace to happen, just like at the end of the race, today, with this "tire-issue" on the CRAPA-#55.

Next week, it will be just some other feckless excuse as to why he either didn't qualify or hit the wall, if he gets lucky and makes another race, this season!

Ol' Fat Wallet (Jarrett) is getting smart and might be leaving POS and Motormouth Motorsports after the first 6 races of 2008. Smart man, that Dale Jarrett!
