Wonder what the old boys that has him sued for failing to pay his parts bill think of him selling the parts he owes them for? Mr. Carter says he was needing some good equipment, so what did he buy Mayfield's junk for? All he had was a couple of cast off first edition COT's and a used hauler. Well, maybe he can make his first installment payment to his lawyers.

The whole situation is very sad. This was an opportunity for Nascar to spotlight some of these underdog teams and really failed. This should have been a great feel good story but turned out just the opposite. Poor management on the Nascars side.

There seem to be folks out there saying Jeremy wasn't too good of a driver and his equipment wasn't any good either. Guess he just got lucky in the Daytona 125 race - I thought it showed some potential. Now were stuck with all the age 30 something plastic drivers that Nascar loves but are really dullsville. Sponsors wake up and smell the coffee - no one cares about these commercials with no personallity.

It makes one wonder how Jeremy will be able to pay for his very high maintenance wife with her two bedrooms full of clothes. Jeremy made his bed by burning every bridge he ever crossed in NASCAR, stabbing owners in the back, talking about their personal lives to the media and in the end Jeremy now must realize that he is just a footnote in NASCAR history, a so-so driver who had a fair run in first class equipment and then was relegated to and fired from go or go home teams to being issued a life time ban from NASCAR. Jeremy needs to go home, take a good look in the mirror and quit lying to everybody and attempt to salvage his life and forget about NASCAR. Christmas is just around the corner and I am sure the wife will need at least a dozen new outfits.

I'd like to see the news not all about him all the time. That would be nice to see.

Junk. I hate to be mean but it was more of a pipe dream then reality that he would ever be a factor.
