Mark my words, this will hurt Rick Hendricks business ventures. I say this because Rick and the Appellate judge have strong ties to GM. Karma will take care of Jimmie and Chad on the race track. No chase for you this year Jimmie.

I just hope it doesn't kill the sport. I am fine if the three stooges loose out they deserve it. But the teams that work hard and race hard do not deserve to have their sport ruin because of a lack of care from the keepers of the sport.They need to take the fans feelings to heart we buy the tickets/merchandise/concession s/groceries/motel and RV expenses and line their pockets.This nonsense can not be helping ticket sales at upcoming venues...It is time to clean this up and get this sport back on track.

the fans have been speaking for the past four plus years..and its not all about the economy. They are tired of the favoritism, and unfortunately, the appearence is that the 48 team gets awy with everything.

Racehub is truly an awesome show... they take a single interview and spread it out over the entire week.. This week, of course they had a week long interview with the winner of Sunday's race, as well as Matt Kenseth.. but Tony is truly a great champ because even after Sunday, when he could have said "see,, THIS is why I got rid of Grubb:.. he praised Darian for last years performance...Tony is truly now the MOST mature person in all of NASCAR... I hope that if NASCAR continues after Tony is done racing,, that he will be put in charge of it.. he might even do the job for FREE to bring back INTEGRITY and true SPORTMANSHIP to NASCAR.

completely true... HMS IS the reason why I will not go to richmond,, nor Martinsville,,I cannot TELL you how MANY races where Tony would be the dominant car and a PHANTOM debris caution would STEAL if from him to give it TO jeffro.... I cannot TELL you how many races HMS "won" with various cars, the 24, 48 or 5 with Kyle in it, to have them say the car was OFFF and so illegal after the supposed cheating WIN...
BUT the final straw for me was when Jimcreep qualified 21st at Dover... I was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo excited to see him have to deal with pit road mayhem... to see his pit the 3rd after 2 cars that would be quickly lapped... THAT was it for me.. even cheating in pit selection because there is NO WAY that pit stall made it all the way to 21st pick.
THAT was the LAST non Daytona race I went to... and now I am even giving up Daytona... we used to to go to 10 races a year which included 5 at speedweeks. But NOW I refuse to give my money to NASCAR to have them throw water in my eyes with their SURPRISE finish of the 48 CHEATING car, as the 24 used to do with phantom debris,, Jimmie and Chad figured out COT first 5 years until last year that when they FINALLY did not let lapped cars entrap any competition, that IF they could get that 48 car out front... they could lap the entire field, especially with his spotter telling everyone they had to let him go past... it was the only decent thing to do for the leader of the race,, to NOT race him... and the ONLY racing they even needed to do was on qualifying day.. and even if they screwed that up, as they DID at Dover,, they STILLL CHEATED to not only steal my money but STEAL what would have been an amazing win by another driver. THAT is what I do not get.. why NASCAR does not figure out that ANY and ALL of the other racers are actually BETTER than the space chimp... and that they are STEALING wins from OTHERS..

But,, who is it in NASCAR that THINKS they need to compete with stick and ball sports??? why would they think they should or could???? THAT is truly what they are trying to do.. instead of saying "we have the best sport.. 43 guys who are equally as good on any given day can get a win",, NASCAR says "well, baseball has the Yankees and football has the patriots... golf has tiger and soccur has manchester.. so we need a champ for multiple years in a row".... but alas THAT is what has destroyed the sport for 42 other guys fans...ESPN did THAT to OUR SPORT!!!!! statistics shmagistics... they don't mean CRAP on a track...

The Appellate Judge, LOL. Call him what you wish, the guy is just a Helton and France lap dog. And what did the Appellate Judge do at GM besides throw money at NASCAR and contribute to the auto makers down fall?

Stewart can outdrive cheating JJ anyday. Jj is really not that good driver. it is his cheating crew chief and the best cars/engines. he can not drive when in traffic, always wreck himself or someone else. he is soooooo funny.

not interested. If a bout between Kyle B and Tony S were to happen, that would charge my engine. When Kyle stepped in the JGR arena it must of been a hard pill for Stewart to swallow. The battle between would be great to see. Wonder who would win and who would say what during.

Kyle blew it big time when he chose to not push his brand new teamate Tony to the win at the 500.. Kyle faded back,, unwilling to aid Tony... I like Kyle.. but as a new JGR member,, he shoulda pushed Tony to his first 500 win.
HOW Joe Gibbs got Denny, Kyle and Joey to BE teamates is beyond me.

you r not the best if you have to cheat to get there.sad to see the sport lower itself to that. Embarrassed for the sport.
Well if that ain't the kettle calling it black. Stewart has never cheated or punted somebody for the win? Riiight. Fat Tony has yet to have quite the success as Jimmie or Jeff but I'll give him a lil credit. He's knockin' at the door. I think it's still his weight thats holding him back. He's gotta learn to put down the double cheeseburgers. ;P

:eyeroll: yep ...Karma's a biotch when you do not respect the sport. cheatin chad and Jimmie have done more cheating and punting than anyone. Jimmie gets mad when people do not pull over so he can get by. Glad the drivers are doing what NASCAR was unable to.and show him the amount of respect he deserves..none ...good for them. Knew they would step up once they had enough of dumb and dumber.

Alright, all you know-it-all Buttwipes, Listen up! Pushing the limit on what you do to a racecar to make it more competitive has been going on since the first race between a couple of one lungers around the turn of the twentieth century. ALL the great drivers and teams have been caught stretching the rules. Back in his hayday, the King had a small troop of also-rans that could be called on to draw a caution or take out his competition whenever he needed. Which driver is the most talented, Tony or Jimmie, I don't know or care. What I do know is, Jimmie wouldn't have five championships and Tony wouldn't have his third if they didn't have Hendrick cars to do it in. Tony would be a back marker without the assistance he gets from Hendricks Motorsports. Would Jimmie have won 5 with any other organization? I think not. Would Jeff have 4 titles with anynone else? Now, if you've been paying attention, you've noticed another HMS driver that has DRIVEN his way to SECOND in the points without having the benefit of a win, but that's a temperary thing. When Jr. wins, and he will, no one will remember Smoke or Jimmies's name.

I would be happy if Jr won and Jr nation could go wild and that would be awesome. and if he won a championship that would be great as well. I do not want to see Jimmie do squat with chad. Chad needs to understand his nonsense and lack of regard for the sport is going to cost him. HE IS A LIABILITY now and Hendricks would do well to send him packing, Because he has brought down the powers that be now. You do not disrespect the sport that allows you your lifestyle and get a pass for it.

Nonsense, Chad isn't a liability to anyone. He could pick his team anywhere if he decided to leave HMS. I don"t believe the chemistry between he and Jimmie is as good as it used to be though. They don't talk to each other on the radio like they use to.

Jimmie and Chad are chasing history. Two more championships and their going done as the best driver/crew chief of all-time. Fat Tony is still chasing cheeseburgers! And, one crew chiew after another. Get used to seeing the 48 Team winning races and championships from years to come.

LOL.... the COT combined with the OLD rules of having the LAPPED cars trap any competition on restarts is allllll that GAVE Chad and his rocketship chimp any so called "championships", that I more accurately call "chumpionships"
If not for those rules that kept anyone fronm being ABLE to take the lead from the nonracer.. who cries whenever a car will not get out of his way each and every single WEEK, Jimmie, the FRAUD would not have been given any trophies... because he did not perfect the phantom debris that had been the way his car owner Jeffro would STEAL wins
