Mr. Himel:

Your cocky mouth after the DJ thing last year was an embaressment for you your family and NASCAR! Hopefully your drug addiction and its' exposure will give you some humility.

Maybe Bill Wilson can help.

holding onto the past are we. didn't Dale Jarret say that Hmiel would pay for that incedent. Jarret has a lot of pull in nascar and his dad is a huge influence old school. It is a conspiracy against him with money and politics covering and backing at every step. he recieved much money for being the poster boy for nascars way of scare tactics to stop drivers they didn't really want to get rid of despite the facts. all the drivers that they have failed are no names except richmond, he was just bad publicidiy in nascars eyes. drivers have to be so political and correct, now don't do anything that will comprimise things, wee like to save face to stick it up advertisers asses.they are looking for 43 poster boys to follow in a line and act as 43 comercials for 3 hours. racing is too expensive. even if you can afford it. why do the team owners over look drug tests. it is the equipment that needs protecting. and an embarassment to be over looked. Roush probably tests his youngin's that are on the dicovery ch. I could care less if people get injured beccause it would open up more oppertunities for the real two balled drivers who don't realize or care about the danger involved. take off restrictor plates and cap the amount companies can write off of taxes on advertising. If you want to invest in the market pay attention to the newly sponsored cars. all I type is opinion so whatever is or could be replied will be taken the same, just opinion. i don't care what you like or think anyways. deal with it. BTW very high concentration and focus can be achieved with the right combination of ingredients and PH levels along with additude and the stength to control.

Chad, he admitted smoking pot on a regular basis and snorting cocaine. Those are in his court documents he submitted. Also,these 2 drugs were found in his drug tests given by NASCAR. Chad, I can read...so don't be jealous.

I grew up with the guy and he's a good person... he'll make it back and being from NC.. he's not the only "driver" that likes what he does.. and the Jr's of the world are exactly who NASCAR was sending the msg 2.. not just shane..
do consider.. most of these guys are rich, spoiled.. white guys... who's parents paid for ever wreck they eva had.. no wonder they iive on the edge..
