You are right Snow. Very few NASCAR fans are neutral when Jr. is involved. Your Colts are the same way. I hate to jinx them, but I think they will make 16-0.

He won the fall Richmond race, claimed the fourth slot in the Chase and offered this warning to his competition:“They better watch us. This team is dangerous.”

and soon as he said it, I knew he'd have his foot in his mouth. LOL you can't just announce stuff like that, firstly because you look like a fool when it doesnt happen. lol

Any driver that does not feel that way should not be in a racecar. Driving a racecar is about competition and every driver on the track KNOWS that they are the best out there. They might not be winning because of money, old equipment, inferior car prep. or any other reason, however, they ALL know that given the right situation they could show that they were the best out there. This is what drives them to go to a track and attempt to qualify for a race.

I remember one night the driver of our mod. got a little bent when I pointed out a young driver and made the statement that, "This boy will go somewhere if he gets the right situation". Our driver looked at me and said, "He is too agressive and burns the right rear off of the car". I dam near got fired when I responded by saying, You can always calm down an agressive driver, however, you can not teach a timid driver, agression.

Each and ever driver on the cup level has at one time or still is that agressive driver who might, on occasion need some calming down, however, if you do not show agression, or think you are the best going and are a constant threat, then you need to find something else to do on the weekends.

And I fail to see how 'feeling' you have the potential to perform better than the rest has anything to do with sticking one's foot in their own mouth.

That's a load of horse manure. Maybe you mean 'given a situation where the best get collected at Talladega, they can show they're the best out of those who are still running.'

Anybody who is delusional enough to think they can beat the best is just living in a fantasy. They need to face reality and realize they got some learning to do. If they CAN beat the best, they'd be up there contendiing with the best, and not being mathematically elminated 1/2 way through the chase.

It is obvous that you just do not understand the psyche of being a racecar driver, that is OK, however, this is why they drive racecars and you either purchase a ticket or turn on TV to watch those who can drive. A racecar driver without the supream feeling of being the best is just another field filler at the local track.

No, the only obvious thing is you describe things your way and everything else being said is misinterpreted as being incorrect. Maybe you should pull your head out of your ass and stop acting like you know everything, yeah?

a racecar driver without the supreme feeling? Are you talking about on a championship or per-race basis? Maybe qualifying? And are you talking 'technically' or about somebody specific?

I think you've been watching too much Top Gun, to tell you the truth. Field filler? You're talking about 33 cars worth, right? Lets just say 1/2 the field. Agree or disagree; Whatever. If you're right (as if you have some sort of magic insight into every driver's TRUE beliefs) then so be it. I don't care what you think, OR them to be honest. Fact is, it's MY belief that there should only be 10 drivers who think that way each week, maybe another 5 depending on what track they're at. As for what they SHOULD feel they're capable of - there's a big difference between a crew chief motivating his driver with little white lies, and feeding him complete BS.

What's a driver supposed to think?'The leaders are 2 tenths faster each lap but I'm BETTER than they are, and I can WIN this thing!"

idiot.

And yeah as I said, it don't matter if I understand the psyche or not. That has nothing to do with whether you should announce anything the way he did. Naturally they know who's doing what during the season and they're always trying to beat every other car anyway, so what purpose does it serve?

"We're tired of you guys always punking us in points! We're going to get you back for all those times, you wait and see!"

Haha if he was anyone that needed to be feared, he'd have the experience and intelligence to have NOT run his mouth off.

God, you give them books and they will not read, you give them eyes and they will not observe. What I am, have been and always will be talking about when in reference to a racers thought process IS, every racecar driver thinks that HE or SHE is the best at what they do. They might understand that the "Piece" they have to work with might not be of winning quality and perhaps the team they are driving for does not have the capability of winning or even being up front or completing a complete race, HOWEVER, each and every driver knows that if they had the same opportunity as the winning cars they would be just as capable of doing the same or better job in THAT car. Has your little TV filled brain been able to understand my statements yet? They might know that in the present situation they do not have the winning combination, however, they are still the best driver out there making the best of whatever situation given them.

This one does not understand the difference in Personal Confidence and realization of situation.

Perhaps we should get back to the basics with alpinedigital, OK, here we go.

See Jane jump, jump Jane jump

alpinedigital, am I going too fast for you, are you ready to go to page two?

It's YOU who apparently can not read.

What part of that did you not understand?

LOL!! So damned ready to type out some long drawn-out description of how somebody didn't understand, and here you are - made a goddamned fool of yourself.

Complete FAIL. Voice of Stupidiocity strikes yet again.

Once you have strapped yourself into a real racecar or taken the time to build a real racecar, get back with me. You still live in your little 20 minute of racing 3minute of commercial world.

I heard I think Larry Mac say they didn't talk about it they just did it a couple races later. That would have them looking over there shoulder for many races and can break them. Then again you see Dale SR put the fear in them on the track because they just knew.

You're such a jackass. You think you're so much better than everyone else. I noted that about your name, and your efforts to sound like you're the one who has a final say about what is and what isn't. Well, you're nothing but another person online who wants their ego inflated, and self esteem nurtured. And as soon as somebody fails to blow sunshine up your ass, you get all bent out of shape.

You think you can 'beat' somebody at a word game according to your opinion but *SMACK* you don't dictate to everyone how they should run their life. If what I say doesn't 'qualify' with you because I don't build or drive, wtf are you even arguing with me for. Either stfu talking to me or quit trying to settle arguments you've lost by saying my posts don't count.

I get a kick out of watching jets dogfighting too, but that doesn't mean I wanna fly, dickhead.
