I had heard a rumour that the entire TWIN program was being canned. Nice to know that is not true.

On Mondays, Nascar Now airs what is called The Round Table and it is one hour long. Perhaps, Mr. Benson could go on over there, too. That show can put almost anyone to sleep!

A real fan is what I always thought a typical redneck nascar fan would be. He can't spell he confuses shows with Disney ones and he's probably unemployed.

Michael Waltrip? At least he's articulate and knows his Nascar even if he's not the best driver. Benson will do fine I would like to see him reappear on the track though at sometime in the truck series.

Sorry Big City VEGAS: A redneck IS: a blue collar, hard working, God fearing, flag waving, LEGAL American. What part of that don't you agree with? I seen a lot of people that spell just fine and dont' have a brain to play with or enough common sense to pound sand in a rat hole.

Benson should be great. I loved NASCAR This Week when Bestwick tried to keep Mikey, Schrader and Benson on track. Benson was always the voice of reason.

Great to hear that POS will take a vacation.

It will be great to watch, without all of POS's hype and lisping.

Very cool post, MISSU3. I have a Bachelor's in English and the language has been changing so throughout the years that sometimes I wonder if I am spelling a new "in" word or phrase correctly. I, too, know folks with Doctorate degrees who barely can tie shoelaces. I have known men who only went up to 10th grade because they had to quit school to help support the family.

My dad was not a blue collar worker for very long, but he was hard-working since he was from Cowpens, South Carolina, people called him a redneck!!! He used to laugh at it all the time.

OH, by the way, where I live, legals really have to work hard. They also tend to be put off at the end of the line. Oh, nevermind..you are smart, you know all about that.

Hey, The New Twenty, great post, too!

A redneck IS: a blue collar, hard working, God fearing, flag waving, LEGAL American. Or you could add Canadian in there to.

I seen a lot of people that spell just fine and donít have a brain to play with, I (smell) just fine, ah crap wait a minute.

Wholly pack crap, Packman just signed with our locale,(In more ways than one, football team.

Now this could go either way for him, either he punches the lights out of one of our local ladies and never plays again,(or), he shows the NFL he can still play ball with all facetsí of SO-CI-I-TY, <<< I smell great I just can't spell.

Oh and that Johnny B. in the booth, thats great to see, but he got their because he is very close friends with Mikie, and Mike is a great big name droper when it comes to friends.

People read the article. Johnny Benson will filling in for Michael for three TRUCK races as a commentator. Not the TWiN show. Michael will be racing on those weekends at a different track.

You're so awesome! I am also glad you are legal. there is an abandoned house next door to me, you want it? About 25 people were living in that house and they have all been deported back to China. Once we get the place cleaned up, it should be just fine. Maybe....what the hell was that crawling up the side of the house the other day? What's that smell? That noise? Don't tell me that is supposed to be water in that swimming pool? Mosquitoes? Naw!

It would be really great to see Speed dump him from both the Truck Races and TWIN.

It was a treat to listen to the commentary last evening, without POS's "hype" and faux-excitement.

Get rid of that....."lisper"... ...Speed!

10-4?
