Ummm.... I'm going to have to politely and respectfully dis-agree with you Eve, on several points.
1) We will never know how or why NASCAR chose Tony to deliver the check.
You make an assumption, and run with it, as if it were a fact.
2) Jimmie is NOT a poser ... he is a verified winner... and yes, I have a brain.
3) Jimmie DOES have a charity foundation ... perhaps you might want to look it up, before you make broad, disparaging remarks about his generosity.
4) So what if Jimmie wasn't Denny's bold, knight in shining armor protector? I personally found it a little silly. Any driver that needs others to "protect him" while on the track needs to get off the track. Just MY opinion.
Yes I am a dyed-in-the-wool Tony fan and will love him, defend him, root for him, believe in him - all that fan stuff. No, Jimmie is not a "favorite" of mine ... but I do have a heck of a lot of respect for him and his team and what they have accomplished.
You or anyone is welcome to dis-agree with me and my opinions. Not looking for trouble - just had to respond w/my opinion, is all.
