Comments? I am preparing myself for the onslaught by one member in particular.
Races, tracks, drivers and all the drama that comes along with it

These guys are so worried if they have a bad pitstop this weekend they might not be working next weekend, so they rush and lose focus. I think Kyle Petty had a very good point yesterday too. He said that while the 48 team is using a diff crew week after week trying to find the "perfect crew", all the other teams are working together every week and getting better.
On a side note though that Jimmie Johnson is just amazing. How many times did he go from the back of the pack to the front again yesterday? He was spinning out, having bad pitstops, taking 4 tires when everyone else took two, but some how this S.O.B kept on coming back. I cheer everytime he spins or has a bad run, but somehow he always ends up back in the top 10. I was happy more than once yesterday w/ the 48's woes, thinking to myself ok theres no way he's gonna come back again. HE STILL FINISHED 5TH WTF!!!!!! The guy and his team are amazing. It was runs like yesterdays that showcase why the 48 team has won 5 strait championships. Hate to admit it but hey I must give credit where credit is due.

It made me think that maybe those guys are just not overly confident in their job security.
Now get your tomatoes ready....while I think JPM drives like a crazy man I find him incredibly sexy. Must be the Latin Lover thing. I could listen to him all day long.
tlmerk wrote:Yep Doc, I wondered if anyone was going to comment on the JJ post-race interview. It seemed really out of character to blame the fact that he lost the race on his pit crew and basically seemed like he was giving them an ultimatum. Very strange indeed. You don't usually hear JJ bad mouth anyone, but to talk crap about his own crew, was not typical for him. A couple races ago, Smoke bitched about his crew too but he was a lot more tactful and it didn't come across the same way. In the end Smoke usually claims some responsibility himself.
So Chad is brilliant (I still don't like him, but I'll aquiesce to that), so how come none of these mistakes come down on his shoulders?
