Truex won't miss Menard at DEI

Oct 4, 2008 | Posted by: Lets go racing | Full story: hamptonroads.com

After Paul Menard announced this week that he's leaving DEI to join Yates Racing next season, there's been a lot of talk about how DEI is falling further into being a meaningless team.

Hey girl, if you have Discovery Channel, they're doing something about the effects of racing on the human body. The show is called Human Body: Pushing the Limits. It's really interesting.

Im thinking Truex is also having second thoughts about resigning with DEI....he could be signed with Penske or even Hendrick or even Smoke....he blew it big time to resign with them. i wonder if they didnt agree to let him out of his one year pick up so they made him resign. Mark martin ran when given the chance, their sponsors are running....this since last year when it was said Junior was leaving.....Teresa you really screwed up now didnt you? I bet Dale Sr. has rolled over in his grave many times since then, so thankyou teresa

Well just want to toss this in.Menards may not be as hot as Truex on the track but I don't remember his crew cheating and losing a crew chief for 6 weeks.Truex can pop off all he wants but he will be moving on next year just wait and see.

I agree with Martin. Menard has the personality of a wall. The only thing that DEI will miss is his daddy's money.

Well Dew, I am going to go with what Snow said and at least Menard's crew chief didn't try to cheat.

I'd like to know when Truex became the mouthpiece for DEI or even important enough to say anything at all?

If you notice in that interview he kept saying "we" instead of "they". Since when did he become important of enough to include himself as someone who is making the decisions?

Well money is what keeps them wheels turning. Maybe it's just me but I seemed to notice
when Jr left Martin's head seemed to enlarge. He was #1 on the DEI grid and wanted everyone to know it....While at Indy this year his crew ask me if I wanted some hot nuts and I got embaressed and they gave me the lug nuts off Truex car.

My dad kept saying that Martin's head was going to get big with Junior being gone. I like Martin and hoped that wouldn't become the case, but it appears that being number one has gone to his head. Maybe just struggling to finish in the top fifteen will bring his head back down to earth.

And its a known fact that Nascar lets certin teams "slide" within the gray area while it punishes others...

At dega in 2000 Dale Sr showed up with an illegal rear bumper. they took the rear bumper off the car, then stuck the same illeagal bumper right back on the car and Nascar never checked it again. cant remeber if that was in the spring or fall but I do know dale finished third and first in both races.
