6) as for Tony's allegations that Joey is spoiled and got to where he is because his father bankrolled him there, I only have two words to say:
Paul Menard. I have NOTHING against Menard, I just wonder if Tony can see the irony of his words (especially seeing as he drove for Papa Mendard in the IRL!).

Tony wasn't made at Joey for blocking, that's just racing.
He was pi$$ed at joey 'cuz he got a flat tire and it sent him to the back , instead of a top 5 finish.
Joey's front spliter was falling apart through the whole 2nd half of the race and leaving debrie all over the track and Nascar did nothing about it.

If someone's family is rich or poor shouldn't have anything to do with their "racing story." If Tony wants to carry a chip on his shoulder because his family had to scrap to make it with his racing, so what? There are people in this country who can't afford to pay their electric bills or buy their kids clothes and we're talking about buying tires for a kid's race car? I don't feel sorry for Smoke in the slightest and see his resentment against these kids as a flaw of his, albeit, a reasonable one. I personally don't care how wealthy Joey's family is or isn't. If he acts like a punk and has no respect for his peers, he's a punk IMO. But that just makes it easier for me to think he did wrong last week. My respect for Tony makes me forgive him his acting like an azz about something he, himself, did not too long ago and caused a bigger wreck than last week. But even though I love Tony and Joey annoys me, this is about racing. And my bias for Smoke doesn't mean I can't see when he's wrong.
This was just to add another perspective, not to say I don't agree with a lot of what you wrote.

I'M TONY's #1 FAN.....AND DON'T YOU FORGET IT!!!
