I am still wondering why this was not brought up on the Daytona 500? Our man is one out of THREE in the history of NASCAR with repeats....why wasn't he talked about more? I was so disappointed...have been a Sterling Marlin fan since back in the 70's....

Kathy,
I agree with you,they never say hardly anything about Sterling.For instance,do you watch qualifying? my fiancee' and I do every week,and when Sterling's time arries,the commentators show someone else or talk to a driver who just finished his/her qualifying run. This happens 30% of the time or they break for a commerical when heis qualifying or about to.....This annoys me!!!!!They did again this past week.I am e-mailing Ginn.Plus, I am so sick of Mark Martin,why isn't his car setup in Sterling's car? I could complain forever but I am glad you addressed the Daytona fact!!!!!!

Sterlin is a true PRO.! A true Journeyman driver in a Sport filled with "Flash In the Pan" luckies.

But he's an old man, passed his HeyDay, and fans just expect him to be there, and no more. Just 1 more car for the BOWTIE sharpies & icons to pass each weekend.

True he deserves better, but the BIG $$ is not behind him anymore, and his performances show it. So like all good guys, he'll just ride off slowly into the SunSet one of these seasons.

I'll hate to see it happen tho!!!!

Christine - he is at Darlington. I know Jeff has you hot and bothered but please keep your JG obsession in the closet. Your main sqeeze is Sterling Marlin. Lets keep the two seperated. They both will get jealous if they find out!

I predict that JG will be ahead of Sterling in the next race. Care to place a wager?

Damn fine run for your driver at Talladega, I was a fan until he broke his neck and now I'm a Sadler fan so I know what it's like to watch them struggle, good luck.

Been a Sterling fan since the 70's. In response to the comment about the commentators not talking about Sterling, well it's like this- Sterling is a good 'ol boy, who speaks with a great southern accent. NASCAR is trying to get away from the redneck, good ol boy stereotype. There isn't any money in it. Thats why when Sterling retires from NASCAR, so will I. They're not even "stock cars" anymore. Sadly, this is Sterling's last year as a full time cup driver. He is only running a partial schedule in '08. Thanks Brian France for ruining our sport.

I too am an avid Marlin fan. I have been since 2000 when he signed with Dodge. Before that I didnt watch Nascar because Dodge was not in it. I have to agree. When Sterling retires so will I. There is not a nicer guy in NASCAR. I am tire of him not getting any publicity.

HEY DAMOPARGUY, YOU WROTE EXACTLY WHAT I WOULD HAVE, SAME THING ABOUT DODGE AND STERL. BUT LIKE TONY STEWART SAID, IT COULD ALMOST BE COMPARED TO WRESTLING. AND LIKE COOCOOJR SAID THANKS BRAIN FOR RUINING OUR SPORT, AND NO I DID NOT MISSPELL BRIAN.

COOCOOjr said it best, These are not stock cars anymore. So I guess I will have alot of extra time on my Sundays.

NASCAR is sure not what it used to be!!! It has turned into nothing but $$$$$$$$$$ Not even fou to go to the races any more. I'm going to stick to Saturday nites at the Dirt Tracks. I have been a Marlin fan ever since Davey Allison got killed. True "Alabama Gang" fan. Like Jake said more time on Sunday now. The drivers don't even wave to the fans like they used to on the, used to be Parade lap, now it's called the pace lap. Good ole boys to young guns. Thanks to all the "Moonshiners" it was fun!!!!!!
