As a life time and beyond Dale Earnhardt fan I'll always be happy to see someone go after Gordon. I have to believe that there are still some Gordon haters out there even tho the Jr. Nation has embraced him because Jr. said so. Gives me one more reason to root for Kyle.

Well I guess there are at least two.#3 all the way. Looks like Kyle is wanting to host the #3 banner also. He`s about all the excitement left in Nascar.

I'm not a Dale Sr fan (nor am I a Jr fan) but I can't stand Gordon. He whines about everything. Whenever something doesn't go his way he starts whinning about it. It wouldn't surprise me if he was the one who approached Kyle rather than the other way around.

Show me a driver that doesn't whine?!

Kyle is at the top of the list too, he just hasn't had much to whine about lately.
His reign will come to an end and then we'll see his true colors and age shine through.

NASCAR/ and drivers whining, goes hand in hand reguardless of the driver. Why do you think they bring their mama's, wives and girlfriends to the track? Someone's gotta keep 'em in line.

As much as I do NOT like Jeff (sorry Tamara:)).....Jeff has won FOUR Championships! How many does Kyle have??? Kyle is such an idiot to think that Jeff is not going to race him until the END of the race! Kyle is lettin all this fame get to his head and he thinks he rules the world! Well, news to him HE DOES NOT!! Kyle needs to GROW UP and get over himself! He needs to realize that Jeff does know a thing or two about racing, and Kyle needs to learn the definition of humility, and try to learn that the point of this sport is to race each other and FYI that's all that Jeff was doing.

Ok, so... maybe I'm dumb... but why do Earnhardt fans hate Gordon? Is it just because Gordon came into NASCAR and outraced him?

Thanks sweetie!! I am sooo happy for you! That must have been a BLAST! He is such a QT pie! He is so sweet too. Did you get an autograph? Jeff really is a nice and generous man, he is a wee whiny though. I still like him, what can I say? I'm a sucka for the 24?

See ya later!!

Hardly a valid argument since Kyle hasn't been in the sport near as long as Jeff.

Also, name calling? Yeah. That's a GREAT way to get your point across.

I hate Jeff Gordon AND Dale Earnhardt Jr. Hmmm.

I do happen to think that Kyle Busch is exactly what this sport needs right now. Someone to buck the trend. Someone to go against the grain. Someone to make things a little less politically correct. I admire Kyle for not taking Jeff's BS.

I remember when Jeff G. got all up in Scott Riggs after a race because Scott raced him hard once until the end. It was at Bristol. Maybe Jeff should think about it.

What exactly are you talking about when you say "Jeffs BS". Kyle thinks he rules the sport! Again FYI HE DOES NOT!! He IS an amazing driver, BUT he has poor judgement. If he thinks that Jeff is racing him too hard at the end of the race then he is a bigger baby than I thought!

Umm. Did Kyle ever say he rules the sport? I think it's might presumptuous of you to say that. Pleaes, don't yell at me again. All caps is not necessary, and I'm not stupid. I'm fully aware that he doesn't rule the sport either. I didn't need you to "FYI" it for me. Kyle's passionate. He's not afraid to say what he thinks. Why should he be?

Jeff's BS - the fact that Jeff himself has gotten on other people's case for racing him too hard at the end of the race. That's what I mean.

I grew up an Earnhardt (Sr) fan (which is kind of ironic considering i'm not at all a jr fan). And I also grew up hating Jeff Gordon. But the older I got, the more I realized that I didn't really know why I hated him! So I asked my dad one day and he pretty much told me what you said. Gordon came into the sport and started outdoing Earnhardt. And I guess that's where the rivalry began. But after growing up hating Jeff so much, I don't have a problem with him at all now!(my dad isn't too happy about that tho, lol)
