Jun 4, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Marin Independent Journal

NASCAR said Busch's behavior after Saturday's Nationwide Series race at Dover was in violation of the probation he was placed on after an incident last month at Darlington.

What that was was the effects of dehydration after running 400 miles in 100+ degrees. Give the guy a freakin break, he ran a great, smart race and now he's second in points. Top 10 in the last 11 races. I hope he wins Michigan, not because Jr's my driver - just to shut the haters up. It's embarrassing how little they understand about NASCAR at the highest level, but they don't seem to care about how stupid they sound to people who do understand what it takes.
Naw dumbazz, that's the effects of being a moron that can only communicate after rehersal. And oh yeah here's some fun facts for ya, when he does win a race this will not stop. One win does not erase the last four years. It's annoying how little you know about this sport, but act as if you are a Nascar authority.....

Amazing how he was the only driver affected by dehydration. Martin, Stewart, Logano, no problem with their interviews. How can anyone possibly think that winning one race would be enough to stop people from discussing his poor performance over the past four years?

Yeah, I'm the dumb ass. You can't even look at a driver's stats and understand them. NASCAR is based on POINTS. The driver with the most points WINS. Right now, Jr. is doing better than EVERY other driver but one in the way the game works. You don't have to like him, but if you criticize his performance as a driver this year - you are a total idiot.

It's not at all unusual for drivers to be affected differently by the conditions in the car. A lot of things can happen to increase inside temps, exhaust fumes getting in, etc., plus the health and fitness of the driver. I remember Denny Hamlin almost passing out once and I've seen many drivers sit down on the ground after climbing out of the car.

I don't kid myself that the morons would not continue their juvenile rants if the 88 should win one race. But at least they might stop the comments about not winning since 2008. But it is simply not true that his performance has been poor for four years. Last year turned things around and he would have won the freakin Coke 600 if he hadn't run out of gas at the finish line and he won the shootout at Daytona twice (plus a Nationwide race). This is a bad driver? This year he's been in contention almost every cup race. To not even acknowledge that just shows blind ignorance of the sport.

The haters love to put him down because they are envious of his success, thinking it undeserved. They should just admit that instead of criticizing his driving performance when he's having a season that 99% of NASCAR drivers would gladly swap.

Real fans of the sport focus on the racing and don't get involved with the Jr. and Patrick-hating nitwits.

No, Smoke wasn't stupid. He figured out punching reporters and running his mouth wasn't getting him anywhere but trouble and so he wised up and changed. Kurt hasn't and probably never will. In his mind, he's still king of the hill but in reality he's so far down the back side of it there ain't no climbing back. Next stop for Kurt, a start and park.

Don't waste your time trying to explain anything to these POS hater/whiners. They're too stupid to catch on. If Jr. played the bad boy like his dad, they'd think he was the greatest thing since sliced bread. Have you noticed most of the balless wonders never do say who "their" driver is. That's because regardless of how many races their man wins or how well he does, Jr. still makes a shyt pot more money and has ten times more fans.

OK Einstein, can you honestly say; that if his last name wasn't Earnhardt he would still be in this premier ride, having boat loads of money and resources(To the detriment of his team mates performance)thrown at him in hopes of justifying his seat?? Since his arrival he has one win, that was handed to him by NASCAR?? His other near misses were also fuel strategies not driving ability! His greatest success' came from being pushed across the line by team mates on drafting tracks. His Busch success was thanks to Daddy fielding a Cup team against small teams with small budgets. When he actually had to race where talent determined the outcome, Latemodels, his sister had a better record than him. Oh ya he's such a talented driver. Give me a Break, if his last name was Smith he would have been back at the Quikee Lube a long time ago.

I have stated many times that Tony is and has always been my favorite driver, so don't lump all of us together, and for further reference Kyle is my second choice.

lol Same old board, ain't nothing changed. Haters still here whining and bitching about NASCAR week after week like they can't find anything that appeals to them so they're stuck with this. But no - I would never imagine these idiots would have changed. Like its been said - can't fix stupid.

Mr. Hendrick, Menards, Whoyakidding - looks like you guys actually are fans of NASCAR so, good to see ya. I practically forgot all about this place but accidentally clicked the bookmark.

I think I'll just wander back out... I mean I have the sense it takes to realize there are people here who will say things I don't agree with, and responding isn't gonna change anybody's mind. Arguing with people and fussing back and forth... seriously? There's much better ways to spend time on the net.

So, that means if you are a real fan, you believe Jr. Is a talented driver. Because if you thought he was a no-talent SOB, you wouldn't be obsessed with him.

So you're jealous, nobody needs to be a rocket scientist to get that. You resent his success. That's clear. Find me one driver or someone with any credibility in the garage that agrees with you that he has no talent. You can't, and you have clearly never been around a track at 160 mph with other cars inches from the wall. I have. So grow up and stop whining.

Not Jealous, disappointed that sponsorship dollars trump driving ability.
Better than 50% of those in the garage feel that his ability doesn't warrant his ride.
Yes I have been around the track at those speeds, didn't have the name, sponsor draw or ability to stay and knew it. Didn't try to keep fooling myself and everyone else like Jr, Danica or Mikey Waltrip.
What are your creds?

Well, you say he said that. And even if he did, it had to be after he wrecked. Drivers will say things they don't mean after wrecking - ask Kurt Busch or just about anyone else in the garage. Smoke and Jr are draft partners and good friends. You don't draft at 200 MPH with a no-talent SOB unless you're stupid. Do you think Stewart is stupid?

You know I agree with you in that respect. I don't like how sponsor money controls the sport and keeps good drivers out of a ride. But why not direct your anger at someone like Paul Menard or the Dillon bros, too? According to you, they shouldn't be in the equipment they're driving either.

Take the emotion out of it and just look at Jr's career stats in all the series. He'll never be a Dale Sr., but calling him a no-talent driver just doesn't make any sense. He's put up good numbers and is having a great year - there's no denying that unless you just hate the guy. So admit it. I don't believe 50% think he doesn't have talent, that's just BS.

Danica? She will have to prove herself over the next couple of seasons or people will lose interest. But I don't blame her for going for it and making the most of it.

Michael Waltrip - the 2-time Daytona winner? Boy, you set the bar pretty high for talent. According to your standards, we'd have a 10-car field for every race.
Does everybody with the same last name have to perform like the Hall of Fame relative? You must think Mike and Kenny Wallace should be out of the sport, too. You need to lighten up.

As for "cred," I never raced competitively. But I know that NASCAR drivers don't win races and championships if they don't have talent - regardless of the equipment they're in.

The smart ones draft to the finish with him and then have the talent and knowledge to take the win.
