Yes it is the same rhetorical question everyone asks about Joonyer. All his fans have resigned to the fact that when he makes the chase that it was a successful season lmmfao. The truth is Joonyer hasn't won a race in a thousand years but in their eyes he is the pinnacle of NASCAR. I don't know who is the biggest loser Joonyer or his fans.

God, life must be somewhat pathetic for the Joonyer fans. This year they run around like Joonyer is setting the world on fire due to the fact that he stumbled into the chase at position number 10.
The mental image of all the Joonyer fans is really quite funny, they are running around in their training bras with both arms extended upward and all eight fingers and two thumbs extended and they have this chant going. We are number ten, we are number ten.
Old man Earnhardt once said that second is the first loser, ergo, Joonyer must be number nine among the losers.
A line from Smokey and the Bandit would seem to come to mind, Old Man Earnhardt (in his coffin)saying. "There is NO way he came from my loins"
Hahaha! You are exactly right. When Old Man Earnhardt was alive Joonyer was a better driver. Now he is a dumbfu*k that has his sister run the company for him.

That is so true, they are not going to fire someone who has fans that are as loyal as you, just because he had a famous dad, and little else.
Whatever, he lost, again. What is it now, 129 races?

A sport where drivers are only given credit on their merit and there accomplishments alone. Not overated non-driving sissy boys who don't even belong in a go-cart let alone a sprint cup car. Take your new overated remake of Kyle Petty have him model some girly perfume or put him on the cover of gayest pizza delivery boys of all time, you know something which suits his talent. Go back to [playing Barbie] and leave the Nascar to men who understand it ...Trinity

C'mon, you remember that incredible Driver's race at Michigan 3 years ago, don't you? The one where Jr drove the wheels off his car... I mean had enough gas left to ride to the finish line? When he DIDN'T pass the pace car under caution? You MUST remember that one: most incredible display of skills EVER on a NASCAR track. Gives me goose-bumps just thinking about it even today.
