“I don't know if I'm a darkhorse. We've run well enough lately. Hopefully, we're one of the guys to beat, but it doesn't really matter what people consider you, it's just how you run.”

Well Junior is not the only punter stu had punted a few this year even his teammate. Little Busch and Big Busch are good punters and Denny is not a virgin. So why single Junior out?????

Kyle has taken out drivers so what's the big deal?? He even took his brother out. He is not thru Dega yet. He wrecked in both races before
and just wait and see he may take out your guy this week.

looks like Tony is the man to beat... after all if Jimmie can come out of Kansas last year down by 165 then the mear 118 that Tony needs to assume the points lead (the -117 + 1 for the lead and no tie)

Maybe Kyle'll take out jimmie, jeffie and jr ... like last year w/ Brian Vickers... man I liked him too... and can root for him without violating the anti-Hendrick rule in my house... no exceptions...

JJ is not a punter.. a punter is someone who kocks someone else out of the way. JJ has been in bad positions to get wrecked out by others.. he has not caused any wrecks this season..like Jr

yeah, I like Vickers too. I hope these open wheelers coming in who are used to going 200 mph are not going to harm the Toyota teams even more in qualifying. I have nothing against the others coming in, but the poor guys who qualify faster than some of the 35 locked in now have yet another type of driver to make them go home..

cuz Jr did it to the guy whose team he will be driving for in an effort to help his future teamates..Jr has turned into a spoiler this year and that is sad..

JJ may not be a punter, but he is seriously lucky when it comes to wrecking out!(Well, except Indy...hee hee)

I think his luck is about to run out! Go Smoke!

Did you know that Casey Mears was Johnson's Best Man at his wedding? Kinda makes sense that Mears got Vicker's ride, huh? LOL
