Headline should be....Wallace now a Driving "Away" Force in the Booth! I can hardly stand to listen to Rusty -- he makes me cringe. But, at least this week we can hear him gloat about his wins at Pocono, unlike last week when I thought I would scream if he referenced finishing 2nd three times at Indy one more time! He may have a 'pleasing' personality, but it sure isn't showing up on camera or on the mic.

Are you kidding me? Rusty is one of the worst announcers ever to call a NASCAR race. He is too hyped-up in his delivery. He says things without thinking about it first. He went crazy saying there were 200,000 people in attendance at the Busch race in Mexico and the place was packed. The cameras showed otherwise. The same thing at Indy where he proclaimed the place was sold out for the Cup race, when in fact there were whole sections of seats that were nearly empty. The cameras don't lie Rusty.

He isn't good, just very annoying.

Too many damn "let me tell ya's" all race long!
And what happened to the TNT advertising style- too bad ESPN doesn't duplicate that and forget the coloured smoke!!

Will someboby please tell Rusty NASCAR ain't about him. I'll tell you what, if there has ever been an ego that needs deflating, it's Rudty's.
To listen to him, I'll tell you what, you'd think he invented racing. Please shut him up! I'll tell you what, if I hear him say "I'll tell you what" one more time, I'll turn the volume off.

I'll tell you what,I really liked it during qualifing when he referred to the "Go Home or Go Home Bunch". That is what he needs to do, GO HOME!!

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT.

ESPN is the crappiest coverage I have ever seen.
They gag you with more commercials than TNT ( and I didn't think that was possible).
What happened to the split screen?
And the cheerleading for junior? What's up with that?
The only bigger dork than Rusty Wallace is Darrel Waltrip.

If Rusty and Darrel ever had their own sportscasting show together, I would never watch NASCAR on TV again.

They are, by far, the WORST announcers in sport history.

Darrel and Rusty both try to relive their golden years by boring the listeners to tears.

Darrel and Rusty, please, S.T.F.U.!

Wow! If you don't like Rusty, what are ya wastin' yer time readin an article about him fer? Rusty is good and if you ever met him, you'd know he does think about what he says or else there'd probably be a few bleeps here n there! Rusty is doing what he needs to be doing and I'll keep listening to him. He's easy to understand and is a decent guy. Go Rusty!!

I personnally think the kid is slipping something a little stronger into the garage. I think trying to purchase some of that "stronger" stuff may have been what the mugging was all about.

Everybody on this forum is a joke. You all sit here and slam rusty for the job that he has done. If you can do it better than get out there and announce. Everybody slams dw because of the way he announces. Not everyone is going to be happy so get a grip and deal with it. Every one of these announcers that are former drivers always talk about when they were racing that is why they are hired for the knowledge of the sport and the history they have to the sport. I am sick of everybody crying about how they all suck. I am going to repeat myself again GET A GRIP!!!!!

Rusty is NOT a good guy. He shuns people at autograph sessions, is rude to children, and overall is an arrogant jerk. I tried to "get to know him" at a function at Pocono once, but he brushed off all of his fans like we were maggots at a dead deer.

Bah to him.
