jr. makes his money by driving the best car out on the track and driving perfectly. jeff gordon is just a lazy fairy flamed faghe claimed to be the best when he beat sr.s record of 77 wins if so why did everyone throw beer cans at him.

So many people love Jr. because he is the exact opposite of his father. He's his own person and not trying to live of being a copy of his father as much as some folks want him to. Jr. is a clean driver and doesn't try to use the intimidator his father did. Most of the wannabe bad asses that followed Sr. have moved on to Kyle Busch but Shrub is just a big POS and can't live up to the image.

He's only a POS to you because he knows how to win in everything he gets into and Jeff Can't.
