No, she doesn't know more about racing than anmybody in the company. She doesn't have to, she's the owner!
She does no more about running a business than they do. Why? she surronds herself with good business people. She will do well if JR stays or goes.JR has no say in the company. All input into how to make the company better is probably welcomed and sought from all it's emplyees, but the decison making process is squarely in her corner, as it should be. JR. in my opinion has hit his highest as a driver, without NADCARS help he will continue to be mid level driver with a well known name (like Kyle Petty is)

Mommy dearest will do just fine without him and we will see how he does on his own.

We lost our game and I was not a happy fan that day......We looked better Monday night I did not pout at all.........
I've done plenty of pouting myself this year being a Vikings fan.....I'd have to say the Colts are my favorite AFC team, probably because they remind of the Vikings sometimes.....so much talent and no superbowl wins to show for it.....

She's an owner. She doesn't have to go to the races.
As an owner she supplies the the things needed to keep the company solvent. Sponsors, equip. and personal. She does that!
She does make apperences,keeps sponsor commentments
It's her team not ours!
Its refreshing to see someone put people in place and tell them to do there job, not set on the sidelines and micro-manage. If she attended the races and did not conduct herself the way the fans liked, what would we be saying then!
If she got on thew radio and told dale to calm down and and quit yelling at her employees and blaming them for everything not going right what would the fans say about her then?
No she's a very good C.E.O. put the right people in the right position and let them do there jobs. If they can't perform at the level they need to be, then as any business you make adjustments. And your personal needs to be totally commited to one effort and that includes Jr.
So he needs to focus on getting DEI to the level that she wants,or he needs to be replaced with a better driver and a team player.
without NASCAR's favors JR could never win or place as high as he has. He's just not that good of a driver.
who the hell are you?? you dont know crap, and you are talking to much of that from your mouth!! she is a failure, plain and simple and if i were you i would leave this site for you have no hinnie left, cause us out number most of the posters on here when it comes to jr, so get out of here and go on a site that sopports the non no nothing treasa!! she is nothing with out sr and she has been proving it and DEI would be out of the top 35 in points if not for jr, so miss crap mouth, you are in forbidden teritory, so stay at you own risk!!!

I was upset that Teresa would run to the Wall Street Journal to do her bitching. I think her being the Car owner if she has a problem she needs to talk to Dale Jr. Not the public. This caused me to lose some respect for her. Now don't come back and say maybe she did talk to Jr. no this did not happen... Now I suppose you can bash me but thats how I feel..........
snow, we know that treasa knows nothing about the business and neither does her hired help. withy out jr DEI will fail, and i dont see any outher driver who can hold it up, aint happening, but i do want to see jr leave dei is a now losing team and he owes em nothing but they sure owe him!! i want and pray he will join RCR and drive the"INTIMADATOR 3" best thing for all of us and i talk to a lot of nascar fans in my part of the south and like him or not they want him in the 3 also, just hope it happens and you know treasa dnt want the 3 out there so i am really doing the math here, jr just may be doing that cause KEVIN with a new sponcer and that could just mean GOODWRENCH is going to be on the 3 with jr in it and that could be what this whole treasa thing is all about, it pisses her off, no retirement for the three, and she caint stand it, lets see if granny knows her math, hope so!!!!

I don't think there will ever be a combo like SR. and RC. They were freinds and partners for life. The only other combo like that in racing was at the time I thought at the same level was M.Martin & J Roush. that doesn't seem to be the case now.
But SR & RC did have a special relationship, I don't doubt when SR racing days were over he would have been in charge at DEI seperate from RC.
That was a very speical situation. DEI and JR. doesn't have that relationship and never will.
richard had to have time, but now he is back and will be the top team in nascar once again , hell look at what he did in one year?? the best is yet to come and he will dominate once again, sit back and watch, richard treats his drivers with respect unlike all the rest and he is back, thank god in heaven, RCR is back!!!!

Putting all the previous discussions aside, JR would work with Childress quite well in the black #3. It would give NASCAR a reason to keep him on top. As they have in the past extra horses bigger restricter plates. Yea that would be a good fit.

but on an even playing field, JR is mediocre driver, he will never achive greatness without NASCAR holding him up as they have in the past!

I doubt that that he could get away with the reckless driving his dad did. It just won't be allowed any more, but passing under the yellow line
bump drafting people into the wall, Yea NASCAR could make excuses how the replay was inconclusive.

But even with NASCARS help his limited skill level will prevent him from doing much over the long haul.

That takes more talent than JR. has.

Like Kyle petty his name will keep him in the drivers seat somewhere. not his talent.

[HAS ANYONE GIVEN ANY THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT BUDWEISER WOULD DO IF JUNIOR WOULD MOVE OVER TO RCR? I THINK THEY WOULD LOVE TO MARKET A BLACK #3 CAR. I AM ALSO GLAD THEY LIMIT THE NUMBER OF BUSCH RACES HE RUNS IN. HE MIGHT RUN LITTLE BETTER IF HE RAN FULL TIME BUSCH LIKE HARVICK AND THOSE GUYS DO. BUT, WHAT DO THEY HAVE TO PROVE BY BEATING UP ON THE LOW BUDGET TEAMS. HOW MANY HOMERS WOULD PUHOLS HIT IN AAA.

i am wondering if the black bud car could have been a sign that that could be in the works with RCR also. we know there is something up and will soon know, he just needs to get out of DEI and RCR is the only one i can see him signing with and that could be why treasa is so mad cause she knows if the 3 is back out there , the rest is history!!!

Who am I? Good question glad you asked
I have been a Stock car racing fan since the mid sixties, Nothing personal against your views or anybody elses.

These just my views as I see them. It's not personal, never has been.But with all the special favors he gets he has been disappointing to NASCAR.
With all the help he's got he should have a couple Championship under his belt. The only question left is how much more will NASCAR do to try to help him get one?

Blaming DEI for his shortcomings is ill placed, not his fault either, he just is not the quality of driver it takes to go to the next level, even with NASCAR help. He is doing as good as he can with in his skill level. Does that make him a bad person, of course not. Just limited in his abilties to drive at the higher level.

you are so wrong and jr will prove it as soon as he gets with a team who knows what they are doing cause it sure aint DEI!! i have been to DEI and treasa has snob employees and i can just imagine what she is like to work for, and i know there is no doubt jr has given notice and she knows he is her meal ticket, do the math, she never gave him a real chance to show case his awesome talent but you will be eating your words like a lot of others!!!!

HEY WITCO, FOR SOMEONE WHO KNOWS SO MUCH. WHY HAS'NT MARK MARTIN EVER WON A CHAMPIONSHIP? IS'NT HE A GOOD DRIVER WITH GOOD EQUIPMENT? WHAT SPECIAL RULES OR FAVORS HAS NASCAR DONE FOR JR? I HAVE'NT HEARD OF ANY JR RULES. REMEMBER, DEI IS A RELATIVELY NEW ORGANIZATION UNLIKE ROUSCH OR HENDRICK AND HAS ALSO HAD IT'S SHARE OF PROBLEMS SINCE SR'S PASSING. JR IS ONLY IN HIS EARLY THIRTIES AND THERE IS PLENTY OF TIME TO MAKE ALL YOU JR HATERS EAT YOUR WORDS. P.S. NASCAR IS LUCKY JR WAS AROUND WHEN SR. WENT DOWN OR THEY WOULD HAVE FOR SURE LOST ALOT OF FAN BASE. MOST FAVORITE DRIVER FOUR YEARS RUNNING!

quincy 2,

I'm glad you brought up Mark Martin and no championship.

NASCAR gave his to dale SR. remember. Mark and dale were about thrity points apart in the late 80's early 90's. They both made pit stops. Mark came out ok, but dale's team didn't get the lug nuts tight. two of his tire fell off after he left pit row, he was in the first part of turn one. they called for a tow truck to gety him off, but RCR semnt his crew down pit road with the tires and a jack. The announcers said it was illegal to change the tire after a car left pit row, which it is. they interfered with the tow truck changed his tires and let him go back in the race. If NADCAR hadn't overlooked this violation which they did, dale would have been towed back to pit road and finished in the 30's and he wou;ldn't have that trophy. typical NASCAR move to put who they want in the championship.

Here's my point some are favored for whatever reason when NASCAR wants it there way. So if JR gets on a team not in NASCAR's favor his own ability won't get him far, that's my point. we can't control what NASCAR does but with all the attempts to ;put him the winners circle of a championship he has blown every attempt NASCAR has given him. He just doesn't have the talent without those favors to do it on his own. Thats all i'm saying. again nothing personal, but an unemotional look at it you can see it. As far as favorite driver most of that started because of symothy for his dad dying so tragicly. His dad was always booed because of his irratic driving behavier. running people off the track bumping people in turns, pushing them into walls.

I tell you, Teresa has some nerve! She's the last person that should be opening her mouth, cause she's done a shitty job with DEI, not workin on gettin future talent, barely able to get sponsors and gettin some by puttin their son, aka Menard, in a race car, and losin NAPA and Penzoil, and she's just runnin it in the ground, and the only thing keepin it afloat is Jr and Budweiser. You watch and see how long DEI last if Jr and Bud were to leave, and i guarantee that Bud will not part with Jr, he makes them WAY too much money. She isnt careful he could take off and when she does, there wont be a damn thing she can do about it. She needs to get off that damn yacht she's always stayin on and run the company like the other owners do like Hendrick and JD Gibbs.
Very well said.I think she is already running scared. Her castle may tumble if she keeps running her big mouth.
