“JPM #42 Go get em !!!”

I'm really curious about how this weekend may turn out for Juan Pablo.
I think this might be his track.
Anyway, I hope for the best possible result for him, he sure deserves a good result.
Last weekend I hated to see how he got his second DNF especially when he couldnt do a damn thing about it.
Anyway, I do believe in you JPM !
GO GET EM !!!

I think everyone thought because JPM had a lot of success in open wheel cars that jumping into a stockcar was going to be a piece of cake. Sad to say, it's not that simple. Wrestling a 3400 lb. stocker with 800hp around in the parking lot is tough enough. All the open wheel road racing folks want to talk trash about going around in circles till their man gives it a try and has the same problems anyone else has learning to drive a stockcar. JPM will catch on but don't count on him winning anything anytime soon.

First of all, Kimi Raikkonen is my man at F1.
Always has been and always will be as long as he will be in F1.
I,myself, never talked trash about Nascar and "going around in circles"!
I do respect all kinds of racing and I also respect the ppl who cheer for those racing pilots.
My point here is that JPM is great race driver and I'm sure he will get some good results this year.
I never talked about winning,even if I think thats also possible.
You should know better than I do --> A race aint over till its over !
Especially at Nascar you never know who might win and never say never.
Anyway , I am realistic and I know it will be very difficult for JPM to win a race, but its never impossible.
And if I should say that I dont believe in JPM and that he could win a race, I better leave this forum and Nascar totally because that would mean I aint a real fan of him.
Racing,also Nascar,is entertainment for the ppl that work all day all week.
Please dont take away their dream because you think you have to smash it!
I am not that sensitive but other ppl might get really upset by your reply,just think of it.
Greetings

Hi there! I hope JPM does well too! It will be a good race,and something different.200,000 fans will be there,well not to step on any toes,but the mexican population is huge! It does not surprise me that it's sold out..Id like to wait and see what the conduct of those fans will be..Im hoping it will be all due respect to the American drivers...Keep in touch my friend from across the water,lol;) cheers!

Well yeah i get you,but today when they had the Practice sesson,the stands were pretty full.They have their Mexican drivers they root for..They say it's sold out,so it is what it is.All im saying is they are Fans of "their drivers" and of JPM...Im just relaying the message from ESPN2's coverage of the Practice session earlier this afternoon...Not my Personal opinion....;)

Hey, are you from Belgium, or just living there? If you are from there, how did you get into Nascar, and how are you able to watch the races?

When I was going to school in France I met a girl from Belgium, she was the smartest, coolest person I have ever met!

Thanks Mindy, its always nice to know I can count on you :-)
@ Casey Mears Fan : I indeed am a Belgian citizen,born and raised in the beautiful city that Mechelen is.http://www.mechelen.be/webc am/ just see for yourself lol.
I got into Nascar from that moment JPM decided to leave F1 to go racing for Gannassi's team.
I have to admit I'm getting more and more into it,liking it,even start loving it !
I think Nascar is one of the most exciting kinds of racing and I'm glad I got those good friends here who send me DVD's of those exciting races and keep me posted with stats of the race on the day itselves.
Anyway,nice to meet you Casey Mears Fan,I'm always willing to answer more of your questions :-)
