HMS needs to stop wasting too much resources on Jr Earnhardt, and concentrate more on Gordon and Johnson; superior drivers who have a better chance at winning the cup. Like Dave Despain said, HMS will make plenty of money on Jr even if he continues his non-winning ways.

Um you don't know much about nascar or you'd know that Chad is Jimmies crew chief not Jeff Gordon's. Chad has nothing to do with the 24 set up pal. Maybe you should put down the drink.

All 4 HMS boys did great today. All in the top 10. JJ & JG are in the top 10. There will be at least 3 of them in the chase!!

HA HA HA HA! All of you silly people talking about Gordon and Johnson being in a slump and not making the chase and HMS in trouble. How do you like the way the top twelve looks now. Four cars in the top seven yesterday doesn't seem like much of a problem to me. They are marching to the front. I expect Jeff, Jimmie and Jr. to be the lead three in points by Memorial Day with Casey in the top 15. Don't forget folks, Jimmie is the king at Lowes Motorspeedway. You can expect more of what you saw yesterday. HMS hasn't gone anywhere, they're still the cream of the crop only the cream is a little thicker with Jr. in the house.

I dont think that HMS is wasting any resources on Jr. Jr has just drove VERY conservative and put the car in the top ten 5 outta 6 times. Look at the last 40 laps of yesterday's race. you saw people taking chances and some paid off, some didnt. It appears, to me at least, that junior's #1 priority is making the chase, not gunning for a win.

I's say that Jr has a really good shot at winning at texas.

Come on over and join us in Nascar. You might have trouble finding a seat, but someone will move over and make room. Finding a seat at the Indy car race wasn't a problem though. Did they sell tickets or just bus people from all the Senior Centers in a 100 mile radius? Seriously, NO ONE was there!!

Want to see a real race, come to Indy [this summer that is].

On a day so nasty the chopper that was suppose to fly in the Grand Marshall couldn't fly, the stands was still pretty much full. Congratulations to Denny. The kid put himself in the right place at the right time and had saved his car enough to hold everyone off those few laps. Had there been another couple of laps he would have finished second again, but woulda, coulda, shoulda doesn't pay any points. I think HMS showed the world that they hadn't gone anywhere. HMS is still the force to be reconned with in CUP.

Not too bad at all. JG gets caught up in a wreck and finishes 2nd. JJ gets spun around and comes back to finish 4th. Jr starts 22nd which at Martinsville is not good...ends up leading the most laps and finishing 6th. CM starts what 38/39?? and ends up finishing 7th. I say that's a pretty good day for HMS.

Texas is a good track for them too.. I say watch for them all to run up front there too.

Jimmie may have had a not so good beginning, but watch and see him come on strong. He gains all his momentum towards the end. Chad is no fool, he can always go back to last years set ups. I think they will both have a spot in the chase along with Junior. They have shaken the mud off their shoes and now have come to play.
I don't think they are doing so bad, it's just that all the other teams have learned more and they are all doing well.
It's funny.... Damned if you do, and damned if you don't. Many complained last year when Hendrick dominated, and now this year we're seeing the same thing, but for the opposite reasons. Make up your mind people. This is what so many of you wanted, roll with it!
The writers must be getting desperate to have to look for such trivial things to write about.

I thought it was a great day of racing for the HMS boy's. Well Done!! Too bad Ryan Newman spun Jimmie around but he did great coming back in 4th. I bet all the haters were having fits. As for me I loved it!

Go Jimmie!

The only reason the trolls saying crap is "it" knows they rock! Trolls are negative in every way! Jealous of tracks, drivers, cars, normal people, just losers lost in time they are. He he. Karma will get em, then remember to laugh your butt off no sympathy, lol.
