Re: The Jimmie Johnson Effect

jimmie has always admitted he wouldnt have the success if it was not for chad, but i feel any driver that wins multiple championships with the same CC, that the CC plays a bigger role, people love to say chad cheats, but if you dont push that grey area, your not doing your job as a CC.

it was a good article pretty much dead on.....

Re: The Jimmie Johnson Effect

I liked the story as it made alot of sense. We all have favorites we all have those we can't stand but it all boils down to the fan as entertainment. To those whose passion is racing it's their life. That goes for everyone including the guy who sweeps the garage floor.

Re: The Jimmie Johnson Effect

That video is so sad. That a child would rant like that is unbelievable. Or maybe it is more unbelievable that this child's parents would allow that video to go out on the web.

More than once I have heard or read rants like this by adults. Those rants make me almost as sad as this child did.

Re: The Jimmie Johnson Effect

Let's just hope that kid doesn't take a liking to the 10 car next year... :shock: :shock: :shock:

Come on, you don't think he gets that from his parents do you :roll: :roll: :roll:

Re: The Jimmie Johnson Effect

I did not listen to the link the first time I read the story. I'm shocked at this child and his parents and I'm really not shocked at most things. This boy has listened to adults rant and rave and sounds like the family or whoever needs to grow up and be careful what one says around young people. I have to say I'm greatful my two children and two grandsons are quiet mannered adults and that I never had to deal with what the kid did on video. Actually it's quite sad.

Re: The Jimmie Johnson Effect

Wait until this child grows up and gets his driver's license......now that is a scary thought! Some parents don't care and that is very obvious and very sad.

Re: The Jimmie Johnson Effect

Ok, enough of the ill mannered spawn... What I want to know is......


What in the heck happened to that horseshoe during qualifying today Jimmie???????????????????? Ugh, pit strategies will turn what's left of my dark hair white on Sunday :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

I'm guessing Brad's feeling pretty good by qualifying better than JJ...

You don't want to be messing with those 7 points. You never know what's going to happen in the next 2 weeks. It's not just pit strategy, he's back there behind the only driver that's ever taken out a jet dryer! Ugh... Besides, who's going to be in front of and behind him on pit road? PIR's pit road is better than it was but it still can bite you. I'm just saying it's not good when you spend the entire 1st practice on qualifying runs and you qualify 24th. We'll see how the practices go tomorrow. He better be checking that 2 car for that horseshoe...

Re: The Jimmie Johnson Effect

im not worried, look at all the times brad qualified crumby, he made it up to the front, no reason JJ cant, he was junk at dover, but he came through with a solid finish, and all the junk he is around, wont take long to pass
