The domination of the Nationwide Series by cup driver IS the basic cause of the decline of the series. Sure the Cup drivers come with sponsors. They're the ones that have been scooped up by the Cup team owner and would have been on the side of a legitimate Nationwide driver's car if a Cup driver wasn't in the seat. Cup teams aren't going to invest in Nationwide cars if Cup drivers, Cup pitcrews and Cup crew chiefs aren't allowed in Nationwide. Those sponsors that can only afford a Cup driver when he's in a Nationwide car will spend their money on a Nationwide driver then. Big buck cars brought in by Cup teams are just a means to improve the worth of their Cup operation. (Wednesday Mar 12 | post #11)
The haters aren't showing themselves much right now. But they will be back the first moment Jr. makes a slight slip. They always do but this year is going to be really hard on them. HMS has it's act together so well that all 4 teams are going to be major players this year. The answer to this thread question was answered at the end of the Daytona race with an absolute HELL yes, Jr will contend. The first Charlotte race is my first opportunity to get to a race this year but I have a weeks worth of camping reservations and my old motorhome is ready. The site I have reserved is less than 3 hundred yards from the third turn. Just hope the weather cooperates. (Monday Mar 10 | post #70)
My, My, a win and two seconds! Now life is even better than good. As Tony the Tiger says "it greeeaat!!". Ah, but for a cup of gas it would be two wins and one second. I think Jr. has his act together right now. (Sunday Mar 9 | post #67)
Yesterday and Sunday you were in Charlotte and Concord, Wang Chunk, what's the true story. Do you drive a truck or are you some type of salesman. You're sure as hell not oriental. (Tuesday Mar 4 | post #45)
Smoke isn't all about the BS on and on. It's like the dummies in the media don't get it. Some of them haven't had an original thought since grade school. (Monday Mar 3 | post #2)
Hey Wang Chung, how is our little faker buddy doing? Isn't life great, Wang Chung, with Dale Jr. in the points lead with 3 HMS drivers in the top 5 in points? How much better could it get? Well, to answer my own question, 1-2-3 wouldn't be bad. Come on Wang Hung Lo, you know you're a closet Jr. fan. Come on out and enjoy the sunlight and have some fun with Jr. Nation. We're as good as it gets. (Monday Mar 3 | post #59)
Jr. set fast speed in the first practice at Phoenix. That's a good start to the weekend. Hopefully the team can maintain that through second practice and qualifying. (Friday Feb 28 | post #1)
Here's a hearty salute to you and all our veterans. Thank you for your service and protecting our country. As a nation we do not show the respect for those that have served and are currently serving our country as we should. (Wednesday Feb 26 | post #2)
The fact it struck such a cord with you must mean you're guilty of being one of those "haters" . I don't waste words, I say what I feel. You're either part of the problem or part of the solution. Jr. has earned the fans he has and though he may not be as good a driver as his father, he's a much better person. No other driver, including Jimmie Johnson, has the impact on NASCAR that Jr. has. I was watching the people in the stands while he was leading those last laps and it was total jubilation. Whether he wins a championship or not matters little to me, giving him as much respect as any other driver doe though. (Wednesday Feb 26 | post #17)
Hey Snow, great run for Jr. Question, have you noticed old Wang posts are spread out all over the play. One time he,s iin North Carolina, the next some where else. I think old Wang is a truck driver with some company like Walmart. The way he moves around I use to think maybe a migrant worker but right now there is nothing to pick in this area so that's out. His last post was from Dunn, NC which is less than 20 miles from my home and Food Lion has a major distribution and cold storage center there, so it maybe Food Lion he's driving for. What ever the case, he's as full sh*t as a Christmas turkey. All the haters are really whining but the facts are, Jr. is in the catbird seat and can afford to pick choose when and how of risk he has to take from now on while the rest have to do whatever it takes to win. He drove a masterful race at Daytona and the last thirty laps were perfect. He side drafted Biffle and didn't let him get an advantage and then drove away and left him. It was the best race I've seen in years and the right person won. (Wednesday Feb 26 | post #40)
Not sure who the "newbie" remark was for. I turned 70 a few days ago and went to Daytona for the 500 the first time in 1964. I've seen Richard Petty win on Dirt. I've been going to NASCAR races since I was 15 years old. In those days we went to places like Hillsborough, Hickory and the Raleigh Speedway. Jr. has always been his own person. It would have been really easy to have jumped into the 3 car and mad even more money than he has but he has not lived off his fathers fame. He made his own. (Monday Feb 24 | post #11)
Limp, really limp! (Monday Feb 24 | post #28)
Amen Brother, that will preach. Just went outside to crank my old truck, even the sun is a little brighter today. (Monday Feb 24 | post #8)
Yeah man, the fix is in and working great. How sweet it is. The stock market will probably make a big rise today. Actually, Jr. drove one of the best races I've seen anyone drive in years. He held the lead and fought off passing attempts from both lines lap after lap and pulled out to enough lead on the last lap they couldn't get to him. This won't be his only win this year. It's not going to be a very good year for you haters. Old Wang Chung isn't going to velly happy. Suck it up! (Monday Feb 24 | post #26)
Even with the red flag, Daytona was the best race in years. HMS kicked butt with 3 cars in the top 5 at the end. Jr. and Steve make the chase right off so the haters panties are going to be in a wad all year. I totally love it. (Monday Feb 24 | post #5)
