its worse than you tuink as there are 3 rcr drivers in the chase...
give the only one that stands a chance some credit. bowyer is unnoticed by tv and fans alike, so its ok that you overlooked him. and don't lie and say you overlooked harvick or burton - no one will buy that.

I forgot about Burton,and i really don't care if you by it or not,and yes the 07 car is running like a champion, Boyer is a very talented driver.

How much do you want to bet Jr didn't run the entire practice because he wanted to keep the laps off his car. Bet he was afraid he blow another engine.

He said to the media it was because his car was good but I bet it was because of all the engine problems he has had.

Hell if i was JR i would refuse to run the rest of the season, these motores are reticules. What is the point of even leaving the house to go race if the motor can not finish the dam thing.

Yep I was him I would to it has to suck to be at the very end and just know your car can't hold up to your effort and talent to drive the car. It's gotta piss him off, I'm surprised he hasn't just went off.

I think his fans would be happy to see him walk out! I know he has class but they are pushing it to the limit and Kelly wrote that everyone should lay off Teresa and Dei but they are sure making it hard. How many engines do they have to blow before they figure it out??

Yeah he's not going to do it he's really a good person and I don't think he'd leave his team high and dry like that. You're right 4
more races.

I AGREE WITH YOU. Just me personally would say the hell with DEI. I us-ta drive for a company that left me stranded because they had junk trucks, so i quite with out having a job, 3 months latter bought my own truck and have been loving trucking ever since,4 years latter i have 10. Some times it is better to just walk away with your head held high instead of feeling down because of someone else having control of your certain situation.

I DO NOT think mocking someone who does not know who owns TEI. youe arrogance in stating "you are out of your league" As if you were born with all the worlds racing knowledge. maybe he is a new fan? you don't know! I thought NASCAR was spending hundreds of millions to get new fans involved. When one comes along, you casticate him/her. SHAME ON ANYONE who does not answer a real question with polite answers. BTW, in this day of copying... TEI would be a great marketing device for "Team Evernham Inc." or whatever. you know, hear DEI think TEI. So yeah Someone new does not know something, and y'all just chase them off. Great idea!
