What's the point? At forty eight years old, after the horrendous injury he sustained and laying off for three years, what's he going to accomplish? He MIGHT back into something if he was going to drive an RCR or KBI truck but that ain't happening. I liked Johnny a lot but I always felt he was in over his talent level in Cup and he's so far over the hill, he can't look back and see the top anymore.

I have one two comments for you kidding as to over the hill : Mark Martin and where there's a will, there's a way. What have you had to overcome?

Morgan Shepherd has produced top twenty and even a top 13t finish over the past few years in what amounts to homemade equipment.These legends can still get it done against the young bunch many who have earned rides for the sole reason of their daddies providing sponsorship dollars.
