He has championships in several different venues going back to when he was a youngster. But I suppose when your a dyed in the wool Gordon fan then it's fun to go on someone elses site (since Gordon doesn't have one) and berate the man who pays for this site. Is Tony going to go for 4? Oh great heavens I hope so as it might just shut some people up. By the way Mr. Gordon praised Tony last night in the showing of the Blues show in Chicago and put him in the catagory of AJ Foyt, Andretti and a few others. That has to account for something.




I don't find fun in it, I call defending my driver. Ya know I do like Newman. Hences why I'm here ;) also gordon has several wins and championships prior to NASCAR. If I Remeber correctly, he had over 600 wins before the age of 16. Plus the 86 wins are CUP. Not another series or venues.

I thought you said that Stewart was your second favorite driver? Make up your mind.
And you can't expect to go on the Tony section of the board, make a remark like you did, and not get a reaction from his fans. If I said Jeff Gordon tried to go to Indycars first. But no one wanted to give him a ride, you would be all over me. Opps I did.

Actually what I said was true.

Gordon ran USAC. USAC back then was the road to Indy. So naturally he was on that path and even tested one. But since it was all about $$ he couldn't get a ride. Then he tested a stockcar and decided that he rather race in NASCAR and the rest in history.

you are right about him 1st wanting to race at Indy in an Indy car, but he didnt go to stock cars because nobody wanted him.
He went down & tested a stock car & was hooked. They say he called his Dad that night & said sell all our stuff I found what I want to do. (& moved south)
It was 100% what he wanted to do Image

I never said he raced in NASCAR because he couldn't get an open wheel ride. I just said he couldn't get an open wheel ride. Yes when he did that stock car test he was hooked.

Okay no more Gordon talk I am about to throw up.

dont wanna break hearts but i will, if you wanna break down the early 90's indy was a big deal so i could see gordon not getting a ride, but come the mid 90's when penske broke away, anybody and their mother could get a indy ride they were so desperate, all the good drivers followed penske in the new driving series, and indy didnt become relevant until the ford indy series closed up a few years back, so people can hoot and holler how great indy racing was in the mid to late 90's, it was garbage...

What is pathetic is that you can't quote right :lol: .

I guess there is a rule about how many drivers you can like that I missed out on. Btw it isn't 1/3 of the filed.

Your a kid so you will learn I guess (maybe).
