OK, let's be a litle smart about this. With drivers like Kyle, Harvick and Brad in that race NO ONE was going to give up a win. I don't like Jr. but it became very clear last night what his problem has been all along.

Jr. has said that he got into racing to get his dads attention and approval. He said last night that anything but a win was not acceptable. THAT is the way he raced when he was racing for his dad. Last night, maybe for the last time, Jr. was racing for his dad. You could see it in his eyes and hear it in his voice. That's the piece that missing in his Cup career. NOT equipment, NOT crew chiefs, NOT warm fuzzys from the owner. That's why last night might be the best we ever see Jr. drive again. Thanks for bringing back some great memories, Jr.

The first thing that went through my mind when the NA$CRAP offical was measuring the back spoiler as the cars lined up after the race was "Don't bother wasting time - you wouldn't report anything anyway!". You can bet that Childress pushed the rules beyond anything acceptable for the other teams and NA$CRAP made it clear to him that they would look the other way.

just to strange an event. Jr couldn't win a race if he was the only one driving. But put him in his father's car at the track he was killed at and he miraculously wins the race. Guys with faster cars just couldn't seem to catch him, hum. And Joey says he was happy to see the 3 car win. Yeh NASCAR we believe everything is on the up and up.

it's strange that he can win in the #3 but doesn't even come close when he's not driving the #3, but it was great seeing the blue and gold #3 in VL though
