Unless something crazy happens like Junior buying DEI they are in trouble. They are in a downward spiral that will be very, very hard to reverse. The farther they get behind the big 4 the harder it will be to catch up. It could take years if ever. The only other chance would be a merger or a buy in by some major corporation with deep pockets. I just don't see it happening. Teresa has really screwed the pooch on this deal. I think it all started when she hired that black dude Max from the entertainment industry to run the show. Then obviously the big hit was when Junior leftand that got the snowball rolling down a very big hill. I wonder if she feels her statements to Larry King were justified now? Maybe she is the one lacking the committment to be a Nascar owner. When Truex leaves it will be all over with the loss of the good drivers and the big money sponsors.

I seem to remember that Junior Johnson, Holman-Moody, Bud Moore and, oh, the Wood Brothers were relevant before you were, Jackson...

NASCAR itself is bordering on irrelevance. Too many races, WWE-type results fixing,underhanded payments to anyone and everyone with an angle, wasting natural resources (fuel) and polluting the environment.

Yee haw! I'll be happy when this "sport" goes belly up.
