I've heard it said (and I believe it's true), that every time lil' Dale gets a DNF, another angel gets it's wings.

Come on Snow!!! Maybe if you would get up off your knees around jr, you'd be able to see more clearly...but then again, probably not. By the way, Blaney's entire family will and/or is currently in a HOF voted by their peers, not by a bunch of delusional fans. I just guess it is "hard to swallow" being a jr fan.

<quoted text>1) Never once have I professed to disliking Jr. It's his coterie of brain-dead fans that take the fun out of going to races, and make having an intelligent discussion of racing impossible that I take issue with. 2) You're obviously an individual whose own mental issues are so deeply rooted that you project them onto others for no other reason than the fact that they have differing opinions. 3) To hector the people posting here for name-calling and trash-talking, only to turn around and call me an asshole, takes an incredible amount of gall, and further shows just how delusional you really are.
I'm not delusional nor do I have mental issues. I called you an ahole after you got on here and ACTED LIKE AN AHOLE. Project mental issues on others??? You had to dig deep in your ass for that one. You are one to talk about people with differing opinions from yours. You are on here calling Dale Jr fans names and harassing them all because THEIR OPINION DIFFERS FROM YOURS....Your comments have no merit. Good day to you. Go enjoy your hate-filled existence.

Tsk, tsk. Again with the name-calling. Where I merely offer up opinions that may differ from some of Jr's devotees, you have some quirky need to take them personally and choose to be offended by them. Perhaps they hit too close to home for you: I really can't say. I will say this though: you need to have thicker skin than you've shown thus far if you intend to hang around here.
Thank you! I hope you have a good day as well!

This dude will be lucky if he can even get 30 wins by the time the clown retires. What a waste of space on the track.

Oh yes your HOF is running in 31st place. Don't you find that hard to swallow???????? If you can run that way and get to the HOF all drivers should make it......

Blaney drives for Tommy Baldwin Racing, which is hardly a top tier Sprint Cup team. Subsequently, his record is similar to other drivers in less well-funded teams like Germain, or JTG Daugherty. Why do you want to compare apples and oranges?

I do not take them personally. I find myself angered at people and their ignorance. You merely offer up different opinions? No. You offer your different opinions and call Jr. fans names in the process. That is what I have the problem with. That and the fact that you seem to think you are qualified to judge who is a great racer and who is not. If you were somebody that was qualified to give that assessment, you wouldn't be on Topix.

should be. Get it.

Those ragging on Jr are only doing so because their drivers don't get the same attention. Like him or not, without him Nascar will be hurting more than it is now. Face it. We no longer see 43 contenders in any race. Too many teams without money to run full races, etc. The sport is dying a slow death and I think the Nascar powers that be are the biggest reason why. Too many fines and points for stupidity like a part being a trace too light? Post race inspection car too low? Are you kidding me? Too many rule changes. Making all cars the same. Ill conceived race for the chase and the chase itself. Remember Kennseth and the year he won a championship with no race wins? Consistency matters.

Watching practice at the road course. 3Toes where is you HOF Blaney?
Did he get kicked out of his car this week. That seems strange.
