This complete article is so devoid of real fact and understanding of racing. Most of the other drivers noted in the article, Sr., Waltrip and Martin had built a reputation as a constant threat to win. Take the run from 2001 to 2004 when DEI either had or was allowed to have such superior plate cars that even hack driver Michael Waltrip could win in, away and you have a much truer vision of the body of work that makes up the Joonyer career. Now, factor into that the fact that Joonyer is an absolute failure in the COT (up to this point) and pertty much assured to fade back at the end of races and what type of legacy do you actually have? Most NASCAR insiders do not have many expectations for Joonyer, as far as getting much better, they understand that he is and has been the most overhyped driver to come into NASCAR since Kyle Petty did with a win at Daytona in an ARCCA race. Joonyer has, at most, one more year to live up to the personal expectations that he expressed when making the switch to Hendrick. Joonyer understands, like all true long term NASCAR fans, that he has been and continues to be the very obvious weak link in the strongest organization in NASCAR, HOWEVER, dam, that Boy can sell a T-Shirt.

Jr has no legacy of his own. It's always been his father's. He would do best if he saved some dignity and walked away.

His career hasn't crashed or burned, He's just been in a bit of a slump, happens to all drivers.

Oh yeah his winning career is through! What kind of little "slump" are you referring to? At least a three year slump? When this sort of thing happens to "all drivers", what happens next? Go ahead and enlighten us on the future of the "red-headed step-child" in Nascar Racing. Prove to me that you really are a Nascar moron.....

Jr Nation should demand NASCAR do a DNA check on old Dale and maybe not Jr.
