watch how fast junior gets to the front in the duals. after all the winner of his dual gets the front row start. NASCAR will make sure to let everyone know since junior wins the dual he gets back to the front
Not so fast, yourself. The Duals don't set the front row, the front row has already been set by qualifying. Junior won the pole, remember? The Duals set the rest of the field. Junior wrecked his qualifying car so he starts at the rear of the field on race day.

You are a moron - just like every other hater looking for a reason. You're thinking - this is a fix, Dale is dead 10 years, Nascar will make it so Jr. wins with a back-up,- the ultimate feel good story. Jr. is finished, ain't gonna happen - that's life and the fact that Robby Gordan and Jimmie Johnson cannnot drive a car on a restrictor plate track to save their lives. Robby Gordon is a moron who has no idea what's going on behind him and JJ was a fool to lift - he had a ton of room. When I saw Knauss talking to Jr. in the garage, I swear if I had been there, I'd have kicked the MF'r in the balls, because there is no one at at Daytona who wants Jr. to wreck more then Chad. Gives his boy a chance.
Ya know the funny thing is, I'm not a Jr. fan. But the shit they dealt him today - talk about blaming someone for who his father is. Junior was right - get over it already.
You might not want to be throwing around that "moron" label, especially when you're making statements like:

"Robby Gordon is a moron who has no idea what's going on behind him and JJ was a fool to lift - he had a ton of room."

Because Robby Gordon is going nearly 200 miles per hour and he doesn't have to drive for the cars 'behind' him, he needs to be focused on what's in front of him. Jimmie Johnson is also going nearly 200 miles per hour and it's easy for someone on the side lines to determine he had 'a ton of room' but if he doesn't want to be in the wall or another car, that's his judgment to make and he is not a fool to 'lift' if that's what he felt he needed to do to control his car.

Truth is, Junior is the one who didn't control HIS car and it caused him to wreck his car. You can't blame it on the guys that were ahead of Junior on the track, Junior is the one driving Junior's car and if he runs it into someone or something, there is nobody to blame but Junior.
