Aw come on guys, think about it. Here was the face of NASCAR at that time, starting his own racing team with his own son as the driver and wham, bam, thank you Ma'am, two instant Busch series championship from the name sake and heir to the throne. Then the scene moves to the Cup series with number one son winning some races and the clown prince of NASCAR winning the big while the great one sacrifices himself blocking for his cars. Wham-o, instant new face of NASCAR by inheriting all Sr.'s old fans and the sympathy factor of the rest of the NASCAR world. Hell, Brian France gets an erection just thinking about Jr. winning one. Oh Fordman, you need to pay attention to who gets the boos these days, it ain't Wonder Boy anymore. The jeers have all turned to cheers for Gordon these days.

It's amazing to me that he became a fan favorite without a championship. Individual sports like auto racing, wrestling, and Track and field are a little different than team sports like football, baseball, basketball, and hockey (just to name a few) because normally in team sports theres a face of a franchise that is normally the best player on the team where as in sports like auto racing, and wrestling there is normally somebody that the fans love and somebody that the fans hate and that is solely decided upon by the fans.
wow, I wouldn't hold your breath thinking I'd agree with that. That's incorrect on levels I don't even care to consider.

No to Carl Edwards! What has he done in NASCAR? Ok, he won a few races and can do a backwards flip. Thats not face material. The fans decide who is the face of NASCAR, and right now they choose Dale Jr. And you say, " what has he done in NASCAR"? Not a lot but hes the face that the fans identify with when it comes to NASCAR. Sorry cousin Carl, you just dont cut the mustard.

People always have the belief that it is Toyota, only because my favorite driver won a championship in a Toyota. However, it's close second behind Chevy. Of the 5 cars my parents have, 4 are Chevys. The car I drive is a chevy.

I've gone through 4 Ford Trucks...1st my grandpa's old one; 2nd my dad's old one; 3rd was the first one I ever bought (looks like the one Jesse Duke had on the Dukes of Hazzard), the 4th one is the power stroke diesel I had wanted since I was a kid and still drive today. I recently bought something that wasn't a Ford...My wife's Kia; It's silver and black and drives very nice.

Hyundai will be in before Kia because they pretty much saved Kia when they joined forces.
