After the incident the boards were all talking about it instead of the championship so he did something right. Now he's the early pick for the championship next year by some along with JJ.

Amen!!! Hopefully JGR will be a team to contend with next season. The thought of watching another season of HMS domination bores me.

If Denny is a punk, what do you call Brad K? Mr. Nice I'll Race Ya Guy? No I didn't think so. Denny at least has some ba//s to say and do what he feels and thinks.

You're entitled just like I am. I just like that Denny is finally taking a stand instead of staying in the background being the "nice" kid. Brad K needs a head adjustment. I imagine he'll get that next yr in cup. Can't wait to see that happen. Everyone has their own ideas about the drivers and I respect yours like I hope you respect mine.

Same person. All of the hotheads are the same deep down. They just come in different pages. Some you accept some you don't. Same story.

I wish it were still a part of racing.. it is a shame that while Mark Martin did not have the power, he convinced racers to wait until the last 50 laps to race..I appreciate guys like Denny, Kyle, Juan who race for position all race long.. Tony learning that it is better to survive with a decent finish rather than race to get to the front is what has gone wrong with him this year..at the end of the race he says "well, we had to go in to get new tires to try to better our position" when he had been maintaining position in the top 15 all race long.. boring... that is what it is turning out to be..and THAT is why the stands are less full with each passing race.. it used to be there were more guys than Denny, Kyle, Juan and Brad that RACED all race long as if it might start to rain and the race would end next lap..Tony better get rid of the mentality that to finish in the top 10 is good enough because his fans expect more...I say to Mark Martin,,
thanks a LOT chump."

Funny, funny sh**! Why some of you people think that the only guys being themselves, are the ones who speak in anger and frustration is beyond me. Being a hot-head and having an opinion on any/everything doesn't mean your being yourself more than others who can control themselves better. If anything, it means your being less yourself. People tend to say stupid sh** when they're angry and frustrated. Yet, these, "being youself" people hang and agree with their every word sometimes, no matter how ignorant those words may be. Anyone who's ever seen Tony Stewart fans agree with everything he says, even if he said it out of pure emotion, knows what I'm talking about. Sure, sometimes he had some good points, but sometimes he was just mad at the time and even he didn't believe what he said. His fans on the other hand (at least some of them) took what he said like gospel.

Get over this nonsense that you have to be hot-headed or wear your heart on you sleeve to be real. I don't know where you people have spent your time in life, but where I've been, people are real and being themselves with/without those traits. Since your always advocating people being real, why knock the guys who don't have those character traits (flaws in some instances) as if they're fake or vanilla. Mark Martin is a good example of what I'm talking about. He's been criticized by some for not being willing to get overly aggressive to win a championship, but he hasn't modified how he drives despite that criticism. That's what you call being yourself people. He knows what he's about and he doesn't vary that based on others opinions of what he should be. Anyone who can't see that, chooses to be blind, because he's probably about as real as it gets.
