WTG Jr!!! In line for the championship.

BTW, posts like #3 WILL be reported. It's one thing to bash a driver but to say the things that were said in post #3 is hateful. There is NO REASON to be so hateful to other posters like that.

Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there!

Congrats to little Dale for winning once every four years. good job.
Jr. has sure been showing those Fords who has been the fastest for the past few years, hasn't he. By the way a Ford was the fastest during qualifying and I believe little Dale wasn't driving it.

Dale Jr, the most abused race car driver in the entire world.. Even his FANS will not give him a rest.. it is such a pity to be the son of a famous person in this world..
LAD he finally won... but remember the greedy SOB cheater Jimmie had to be put to the rear to keep him from getting to the win... have a talk with Jimmie about if his ego and greediness needing to cheat to win every single race is worth destroying the fanbase and so the entire industry of NASCAR????
in other words.. NASCAR uphold your RULES and THEN force the 48 car to SIT OUT all races AFTER they are caught cheating!!!!

That's 2 wins in 4 years Lil T-bird that could. Yeah, the Fords qualified fast but sure couldn't catch Lil E in the end. Most laps led and winning the race for Team Chevy on Father's Day.

Another disgruntled Stewart fan reject posting again. Did you like the end of the race when Lil E was pulling away from Fat Tony? No? Well than just eat it up than...NUM NUM NUM NUM! Great job of sticking it to the reigning Nascar chump. June bug went and shut all the haters up by winning that race. Awesome job of Jimmie getting a solid Top 5 finish after having to change engines, start in the back, and dealing with those terrible tire issues. Still, O' Confident Jimmie moved into fourth in the point standings while StewartHog remained in the eight spot gaining nothing but a greasy cheeseburger after the race. LOL!!!

Sure, Jr. pulled away from Tony. But, to date, Tony has won championships and more races compared to Jr.

What's screwed up is that Kurt Busch says something to the media and gets suspended...But it seems like all the Hendrick Drivers are the golden boys and can get away with ANYTHING...Like those are the guys that Nascar wants to win and make the positive headlines. BTW Tony Stewart has gotten away with a lot throughout his career that I think he should've been suspended for too, but I will credit him that he's calmed down and grown up quite a bit.

sounds about right...Nascar seems to have a thing for the bowtie wearing losers. It always seems like they will only suspend guys that aren't from the big money teams...guys like Stewart, Johnson, Gordon, & Jr will just get fined, but Nascar will suspend the crew chiefs

In April at Richmond, Jimmie Johnson came to pit road & was penalized for a tire violation on his pit stop. One of his crewmen rolled an unattended tire toward the pit wall. Johnson had to restart from the tail end of the field. At Michigan this past Sunday, during Dale Earnhardt, Jr's lap 154 pit stop, a crew member rolled a tire from the right front corner of Jr's car unattended to the wall. No violation was called. I saw this while seated in the grandstand in plain view of Jr's pit. The first thing I did after returning from MIS was search the DVR recording of the race to confirm my suspicions. No doubt about it. Anyone in doubt, check a recording of the race.

A small fact you missed, Brianiac. Being fast in practice and qualifying doesn't win the race. Being fast in the race, wins the race and Jr. was FAST in the race. DROVE BY all those fast fords and won the race, which is the objective of being there.

I bet the federal government is behind all of this...It's a conspiracy.

hillarious...but THIS is why NASCAR is a sport at all.. most drivers have rabid fans, as you prove june bug still does, even though he now drives for a guy who pays NASCAR to give his other driver Jimmie breakas each and every single week.. seems YOU would despise Rick Hendrick for wrecking Jrs career
