Is there a lack of $$$ (I mean YEN!) at POS-Racing?
Posted in the Michael Waltrip Forum

Dustin Long laid this one on us, over on Jayski this morning:
Three races into the season and Michael Waltrip Racing remains without a top-10 finish. That makes this weekend’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Bristol critical for the organization.
The short tracks have been a boon for Michael Waltrip Racing, which has had at least one top-10 finish in the last 13 races at Bristol, Martinsville and Richmond. That streak dates back to late in the 2011 season. With two of the next three races at Bristol and Martinsville, this could be a time for Michael Waltrip Racing to break free of its early struggles.
So far the best finish by an MWR car has been 13th. Clint Bowyer finished there at Phoenix, and Brian Vickers placed there last week at Las Vegas.
Bristol, though, has been favorable to both drivers.
Brian Vickers has top-10 finishes in his last four Bristol starts. Last August’s race marked the first time in four Bristol races that Clint Bowyer finished outside the top 10. He led that race until spinning after contact with a lapped car.
Bowyer enters this weekend after placing 23rd at Las Vegas. He suffered damage on a restart that forced him to pit, ruining his race.
“Well, that stinks,’’ he said after the race.“My guys worked so hard and we were good all weekend.’’
I know it is difficult to believe those JAP-junkers from POS Racing/Motormouth Motorsports has not gotten a top-10 in the first three races of the season. It must be that lack of $$$(I mean YEN!) which used to come from CRAPA.
Seen any big ads from Ol Man Butler's Aarons Rent To Own this season? 5 Hour seems to be the only sponsor of POS's who gets some big air-time.
If it wasn't for POS's and JAW's big mouths running continually on race-day, you would never know that POS Racing had cars entered this season. LMFAO!

Big weekend for MWR.

Hey, Nasfan66,55,56,15,66.......... I thought you said this would be a big week-end for POS-Racing/Motormouth Motorsports. Do you call P-41 for that JAP-junk driven by "Back-Row" Joe, in that #66 a big week-end? LMFAO.
"Bow-wow" gets a P-15 and Vickers was the only JAP-ride from POS-Racing that had anything close to success, even though Ford had 4 Ford Fusions in the top 5 and "Cousin" Carl won the race!
Did you see that Chip Ganassi's Ford Eco-Boost V6 powered Riley won the 12 Hours of Sebring.
Oh, that John Force Boss 500 Powered Ford Mustang Funny Car won the Gatornationals, driven by Robert HIght!
Can't beat those Ford's, big guy!
As Bozo always says......."Wait-For-It "

nasfan.......what the Hell ever happened to that Ferrari 458 that "Coughy" and POS owned the past couple of seasons? I guess with the fact the CRAPA-$$$$$(I mean YEN!) is long-gone, they don't have the funds to run the Cup program and play around with expensive sports cars, like that Ferrari 458, any longer.
Two, big races have gone by and no Coughy or POS behind the wheel this year. They didn't enter at either the 24 Hours of Daytona or at last week-ends 12 Hours of Sebring.
Oh, I forgot, POS probably ran it into some wall, when he was showing how great a driver he happens to be, and, destroyed that Ferrari 458. Maybe JAWS forgot to tell all of those sports car drivers just how great a driver POS is, especially on those restrictor plate tracks.

Hey Wall, Big news to report. Now I have it on good authority that MW has a new partner. You'll never guess, his old friend Robby Go Fast Gordon, is joining the Bowling Ally gang. Seems he stuffed a bunch of that good old whiskey money in a sock and he's putting his money where his mouth is and joining the gang.
By the way, I have some swamp land in Florida to sell and was thinking about you. It would be a good place to put a race track on, if you could haul in enough fill to get rid of the snakes and gators. If your not interested I'm gonna get in touch with MW, he's a visionary.
#6 Jan 9, 2015
Wall, I still have that land for sale down here in sunny Florida. Seems old MW is a little short of funds after the loss of NAPA. I have been speaking to an Australian that is unemployed though and he has promised to get back with me.
By the way, Jayski reports that there are no plans as of yet for MW to run any races in the 2015 season.
Wait for it

Hey nasfan55,56,66,15,99.......... I see that POS will be wheeling that #55 JAP-junker, that Aaron's (Wet) Dream Machine, once again in the Daytona 500.
I am hoping some of our old friends might stop by for a visit. I know that POSfan owes us several race reports from last season. For some reason, he doesn't report, when POS runs around at the back for most of the race, like last season and lucks out with a fairly good finish, after the entire field gets involved in.........."the big-one!"
Hoping that Renee ("Fishy") might stop by, along with Terry, POS Expert (WE), Dr. Dave, POSfan, GoPOS, lynswboro, Blowzo,, and Freakie and any other old friends from days-past.
We don't seem to hear very much about POS any longer. I guess that Cough..........man must be running the show, over at that converted bowling alley/cinema in Cornelius. The only time you hear about POS is when JAWS is around to tell everyone just how great both of them are. OMG, Fox will be on the air in just a couple of weeks and those two, idiots will be running their big mouths once again. Too, damn-bad, we can't put restrictor plates on those mouths!
Wonder what ever happened to the IMSA-Ferrari program? I guess that was probably run on CRAPA-money, for POS and Coughy to play around in road racing. I know POS wrecked one of them at the Rolex 24 hours a couple of years ago and that seemed to be the end of that. Those Ferrari 454 are pretty expensive and I think both Cough..........man and POS ran out of talent very quickly when guys like Boris Said, Scott Pruitt, Oz Negri and other serious-drivers were barreling down on their asses! I remember, at Le Mans, that Coughy was suspended from the track for "rough-driving". LMFAO!
Do you think POS will be doing a little.........."wall-ban gin'?"
Wait-For-It & 10-4!
#8 Jan 29, 2015
Looks like NAPA is back in Sprint Cup. Boy that did not take so long did it phuqtards? 5 races. I wonder if that's equal to 5 Jeff Burton/MWR races or 5 actual races as in 1,2,3,4,5 starts?
Who will strap into a Sprint Cup car more times this year Chase Elliott or POS's young stud Moffitt, or even Lurch and Moffitt combined?
#9 Jan 29, 2015
chrisco, great to see you around here, once again! I never did figure out the Jeff Burton-deal last season, did you? Must have been some barroom deal POS drempt-up, while frequenting the Rusty Rudder, over on Lake Norman. The deal was probably, originally, with Waaaaaaaaard Burton, instead of Jeff!
I see they have Moffit running a race before Vickers takes back the controls of that (Wet) Dream-Machine early in the 2015 season.
Well, I watched some of the Rolex 24 Hour Race last week-end and there were several Ferarri 458's; however, none were wheeled by either Cough..........man nor POS! It must have been some of that lucrative CRAPA-deal that funded that "play-toy-racecar" for those two to destroy. Would you ever trust POS or coughy in your expensive Ferarri, chrisco? I think I know the answer. LMAO!
See you around Daytona-time!

HTF does a contracted MWR Toyota driver (Moffitt) end up driving a Ford Fusion? What kind of rapidly bio degrading toilet paper is this "contract" wrote on?
If some BS Ford start and park team can secure full race sponsorship for a plurality of races why cannot MWR (a sponsors wet dream)?
Is it possible MWR's weak, feable, spineless answer to young stud drivers like Larson and Elliott will drive more races for a Ford team than for MWR this year???

No lack of $$$$ Thank you Maxwell House! Drink up, Banger!

Hey, GoPOS..........I am laughing my ass-off at Bow Wow, after Saturday night at TMS, aren't you. Bow Wow was getting moved out of the way by the back-field-fillers in that JAP-Junker from Motormouth Racing/POS Racing. That was really funny. It was just like 2007 all-over again, except for no "Drunken Sock Walk" from POS.
I really think Cough-man needs to throw a few, more million $(I mean YEN!) into those JAP-junkers, to make them run as fast as Tokyo-Joe's are running this season.
Do you think is was the loss of the big, CRAPA,$$$$$$$(I mean YEN!)
This team really sucks. Maybe crisco will stop by for one of his great TMS-reports.
#13 Apr 18, 2015
No report from Texas for this spring, had a wedding in the family last weekend did not see a lap, don't feel like I missed anything either.
#14 Apr 18, 2015
chrisco..........what did you think of Bow Wow Bowyer having to use a..........Provisional........ to make the race, tomorrow at Bristol?
I am really appreciative that JAPCAR took the #15 last week, as the token "inspection-car" back to JAPCAR HQ.
The funniest statement came from Bowyer, when he said that maybe JAPCAR-tech could figure out why that JAP-junker ran so slow at TMS! Now, that is funny. Sounds like he is not real happy with POS Racing/Motormouth Motor Sports.
It's got to be that losing of CRAPA and their big-$$$$'s! LMFAO!
#15 May 6, 2015
THAT really did not take so long eh? Not only is NAPA back in Sprint Cup after leaving because Michael Waltrip and MWR systematically and deliberately tried to steal unearned incentive money from them by attempting to alter the outcome of a professional sporting event and alter the make up of the season's championship run, but NOW they are back as a primary sponsor of a young stud racer in the premier series!
What do you think is the bigger money - the Chase Elliott deal or this Maxwell House purchase of "residual" sponsorship inventory with POS racing? LMAO
Oh well Lurch's organization will certainly remain loyal to Vickers and Moffitt (because its all about loyalty and standing by your homeboys over there at Merkin Motorsports) and they will both have quality opportunities when they are ready. LMFFAO Kookaiders.
What? Moffitt is back in a Ford this week? WTF banger buds! His "contract" must not have a loyalty clause.
Not to worry, I'm sure this Ragan thing will work out great. All I remember about him before his slide into racing obscurity was that he was the prince of the single car accident. I predict more scrap for the pile - Kazien banger buds.
How does MWR not have a ride for their young stud Moffit but a couple weeks ago turn-your-head-and-coughman was sniffing around Joe Gibb's young stud like that weird guy with the white panel van who always hangs around the park inviting little kids to come over and look at has "puppy" - he had a ride all ready for Jones but Tokyo Joe would have no part of that.
And how about this story about Lurch testifying to congress on behalf an aftermarket auto parts supplier lobby. Now he is a lobbyist, at least he'll fit in well with those scumbags. When does the mongoloid have time to run a race team with the big movie in production (htf is that going banger buds?) all the comedy clubs, sports casting, dancing with the stars, and now congress. Sounds like they do anything to keep him out of the shop and he is happy to oblige.
When do you think Fox is going to figure out that by letting Lurch wear his firesuit behind the desk they are giving rent to own free, unearned, unpaid advertising time? When do you think Aaron's is going to realize its not worth it?
You just can't make this sh*t up.
(ps my latest NAPA purchase - an AC compressor relay - as always could have bought a less expensive one elsewhere but NAPA is my homeboy as long as they continue to flip the bird to MWR)

chrisco..........I am back doing business with CRAPA, also. I have a friend who owns one of their stores a few miles south of where I live. I never set foot in one, as long as POS Racing/Motormouth Motorsports was sponsored by CRAPA. I told my friend the reason for taking my business elsewhere, was the loud mouthed idiot who plugged their wear's!
During my absence from CRAPA I chose to get my parts from a Federated Auto Store, which happens to be Kenny Schrader's sponsor. I would much rather give my money to a "real" driver, like Schrader and not some "huckster", like POS!
Chrisco, what happened to that expensive, Ferrari 458-toy which POS and Cough..........man were playing around with, for a couple of years. Oh, chit, I forgot about no CRAPA $$$$(I mean Lyra!) to blow on that "toy" after the rigged-race.
I can't wait until the other network takes over from Fox! You will never hear, again, about how great JAW's happened to be or how great POS happened to be, also. The two cars, that Aaron's (Wet) Dream Machine and the 15 will probably never be mentioned, like they are, continually, when JAW's is running his mouth, every race! Will those two ever shut their big mouths?

Interesting article from Lee Spencer today about Toyota's need to add quality teams to keep quality rides under all these up and coming young Toyota drivers. Funniest phuquing thing, Brett Moffit's name is not mentioned as one of these Toyota studs of the future.
#18 Jul 21, 2015
chrisco, WTF gives with this statement from Lee's great article:
"Michael Waltrip Racing has two teams, but questions remain as to whether it will continue with the manufacturer beyond this year."
Maybe POS, POS Racing & Motormouth Mouth Motorsports might be in line for a reunion with........Bill Davis..........and run some of those old, MoPars, just like POS ran in 2006.
Remember how much fun it was to watch POS drive that MoPar #55 junker? We had a lot of great laughs over that one, didn't we? It was just a "prelude" of what was to come in 2007 with POS, Ol' Fat Wallet and "Dork" when they tried to drive those JAP-junkers from TuRD! LMFAO many races that season, especially when all of them were.........."Hittin' The Haulers". LMAO! Those were great days for POS and all of his Kook-Aid drinkers like "Fishy" (Renee29404), WE, GoPOS, nasfan, Klueless Kelly-Ann and numerous others under that "spell" from this racing-fraud!
As Bozo always stated.........."Wait-For -It"
#19 Jul 23, 2015
OH WTF BANGER BUDS???
I'm sure the new article from Lee Spencer at Motorsport yesterday has you all reaching for the emergency batch of kookaid and butt chugging furiously.
Settle down now, alot of it was rumor and speculation and we all know Lee Spencer does not operate under the same journalistic standards of excellence and accuracy of say the hump who writes the race summaries on the MWR web page (or Klueless).
So don't get alarmed at the rumor that TuRD my dump Merkin Motorsports, don't get alarmed that Kauffman may take the business to a non-manufacturer supported Chevy team (I can't believe anyone would want that business), don't get alarmed that things may have gotten so bad that Rent-to-own maybe seeking a different NASCAR partner (I mean come on - these guys are a match made in heaven).
Put the funnel and vinyl hose way - its all rumors.
What did catch my eye was the quote - a statement of fact - made by the real owner of what little is left of Scumbag Motorsports - Kauffman - that opens the possiblity that when Vickers is ready to return there may not be seat for him at MWRH dba MWR. I seem to remember Lurch getting infront of the cameras and supporting his bleeder homeboy driver 100%- our concern is getting Brian healthy but when he is ready to return the MWR family will be right here waiting for him.
Also think about what he said "I think it would be a challenge to try and figure something out.." A challenge to try??? I think trying is reasonably easy if you have even the slightest amount of will and fortitude to do so. It might be a challenge to figure something out when your product is a declining race team with a reputation for mediocrity, corner cutting and cheating but hell - things are so bad we can't even try anymore?
After all we know that MWR is built on loyalty (because winning damn sure has nothing to do with it). Who the phuque is in charge here?
