I'm tired of week after week talking about Weasel!
Let's see if we can get this forum back to being about DALE JR.
Sorry to be blunt, but I come here to talk racing and JR not just weasel week after week!
Take Care All!

Jr had a great day. Ran up front the biggest part of the race. I don't think his car was a strong as it has been in the past. He was able to pull up and pass like in the days of ole. lol He still had a great car though!

Jr did great this weekend, he was very calm all thru the race until the end.and it happens everytime at the end he gets to anxious,and makes some dumb move, and he admited it this weekend and said he needs to change his way of thinking towards the end of the race. did you hear that

No I didn't hear that.
My comment was that his car DIDN'T seem to be as strong as in the past at the super speedways.
(I capitalized Didn't because that wasn't what I posted earlier and was what I meant to say.)
At many of them in the past he was able to pass without much help. He didn't seem to be able to do that this weekend. I really did see that he had a great chance to win. I'm sure no matter who you are it's hard knowing the finish is near and your in contention to win. Then messing it up in one wrong move. That's been done many times by him. It's also something that other drivers deal with as well.
Have a great day

What really makes me mad is that Toyota has a BIG advantage of 15-20 extra thats why KB is doin good. Wish nascar would let chevy change to the motor thats the same as Toyota. Toyota cheats and thats that.

Get real! Toyota DOES not cheat, they are just the best in high tech any thing. And like Brad K. said, Kyle is one hell of a driver and he believes Kyle can drive any thing and win, cause he is the best he has seen and likes to see him race. And Brad said that no matter how much money they put in the Chevys, Fords, Dodges, Toyota has far to much money and engine builders that are the best in the world and they can never compete with them in both sences! But Kyle gets a lot of phraise from all series, so just except that Kyle is a driver that only comes along once in awhile, and really folks, there are only a few of those drivers that has it like Kyle!! Did you see where JR said he would like to sit in the stands and watch Kyle drive?? He said that Kyle is a master at racing and he would love to just sit and watch him race the cup races! Jr has a lot of respect for Kyle and the racer he is, as he put it,{{THE GUY IS AWESOME}} Jr is ok!!{{{GO KYLE}}}}

I thought Junior had an awesome car. It was on rails for the most part of the night. The same thing happened to him at Dega. He got shuffled out towards the end, and then no one wants to help him get back up there.

I agree with you all. No more talk on Shrubie on the Dale Jr forum. Unless he does something stupid. Then we can laugh our a$$ off!

I disagree. Thats why Toys suck in F1. They can't drag race. My Chevy truck can out perform a Toyota truck any day of the week. Chevy happens to make the fastest street legal motor in the first place. Sorry if I said Toyota cheats. My bad. But Nascar is letting them get away with the more hp and they won't let the other manufacturers upgrade to the new motors.
