McMurray knew skid would end

There are 1 comment on the Kansas City Star story from Jul 17, 2007, titled McMurray knew skid would end. In it, Kansas City Star reports that:

“It doesn't seem like anything really bothers him too much.”

JOLIET, Ill. | Even though it took him just two races to get his first victory, Jamie McMurray knew that this Nextel Cup thing was not going to be easy.

He had no illusions after that victory back in 2002 that he was going to be piling up trophies with Pettylike frequency.

But a couple of races without a victory stretched to dozens and then to scores and then to entire seasons. People wondered, and the whispering started, and McMurray did as much explaining as driving.

McMurray, 31, insisted Friday at Chicagoland Speedway, site of Sunday's Cup race, that he never stressed out. He says he absolutely knew that things would come together and that more victories would be forthcoming. Read more

What has NASCAR and its teams become??? I have stood by trough the multiple name changes, rules changes and schedule changes. But, the latest blow dealt to Sterling Marlin and Joe Nemichek takes the cake. I realize the young guns need a break, but not by breaking the backs that have made NASCAR what it is today. Yesterday's announcement to my surprise (and it seems Sterlings) that he was cut for the rest of season, replaced by a rookie, is outageous. Someone needs to cut him a break and provide him with a car that he can take to a win. Experience and excellent can win- not young guns in mediocre ones!!!
