I wish the media would try to understand this. We don't love Jr because of who is daddy was. Many of us love him in spite of who his daddy was. We love Jr because of who HE is. Someone please write an article about his qualities, his successes, his making Nascar grow and thrive without mentioning his father. It's all about HIM.

Where I grew up, if winning was what it took for somebody to be your fan.... they would be called a FAIR WEATHER FAN. Dale Jr. is a Washington Redskins fan through the good times and the bad. It is easy to root for a guy who wins every weekend. I find it sad that sports writers don't get that. Hell if winning was number 1 to Cubs fans, they wouldn't have many. Afterall, the haven't won a Championship in 100 years.

Junior won two Nationwide Championships and a lot of races in that series with RCR. He won 17 races and the Daytona 500 with a DEI team that is getting progressively weaker every season. DALE EARNHARDT JR IS A GREAT DRIVER that is why he has so many fans! He's got three wins this year (should be 4) and he's going to win more now that he has good equipment under him at Hendrick. His fans are the lucky ones because..."he's a good guy. He's good for the sport. He's appreciative of the position he's in and he works hard and he's a great driver." Jeff Gordon

I have stood behing Junior now for about five years. He has made me proud every step of the way and I have yet to regret waering one of his shirts and saying that I am a Dale Jr. I am here, for the good times and the bad.
