Where's all my NASCAR buds? <---- Go Dale Jr.! I can't wait until tomorrow; it's been a long time coming. I hope this is a better season for Jr. than last year.

Looks like Jr. *officially* finished in 8th. Bah! But at least it's a top 10 and he got bonus points for leading. My poor baby got bumped around today. It's OK, Jr. Nicole will make it all better. Post a pic of your room sometime. LOL We need to have a NASCAR forum on here. My husband only allows minimal Dale Jr. memorabilia in the house but I make sure to have a little bit scattered in each room. Plus the front plate on my car, the sticker on my back window, my Bud jacket...

I have a Bud jacket too!! But mine can't be out in snow or rain, and one of the snaps fell off, so I rarely wear it lol. I hate to say it, but it was sort of a waste of $120, yes I know thats A LOT for a coat lol. I can't help it, I adore him I just looked around my room and counted 15 Jr. posters lol! I didn't realize I had that many...plus all the little things, like a figurine of him, a hat, his car, etc. Plus my Dale Sr. trash can... What are your feelings on Tony Stewart? I have no problems with him, but man was I rooting against him today lol. When he hit Matt Kenseth and got penalized for aggresive driving, I'm sitting there like "didn't he just complain about people who do that??" He annoyed the heck out of me today, but it was a really exciting race wasn't it?

I'm a big fan of Elliot Sadler I think he got 6th. Not sure I just barely caught a glimse of then end. My friend(Who doesn't really know much about Nascar) is a big fan of junior though. It's about time the new season started.Junior sure doesn't look bad though. Not married yet. I wonder if he'd like to go out for some cashew chicken....

Bubu, I think we must have the same coat. Mine has snaps too and the price, uh, is the same. Mine is black, I thought the red one would get dirty quicker. DH hates the Bud jacket.I'm sorry, I have to say Tony is my second favorite driver. I know he was a little crazy today but I do think Kenseth went after him first there when he bumped him early on. exclusive_delirium, when you and Jr. go out for Chinese food let me know. He and I can share the Lo Mein...

LOL There is a rumor going around that Mr. Johnson may have that victory taken away. He's been caught one too many times cheating, most recently just this past week. Hmph. At the very least he'll probably be docked some points and then he won't be first place in points anyhow.

I know his car was illegally altered, for qualifying was it? I really think NASCAR should punish the entire team, not just the crew cheif. I mean, its the car that got changed, it shoudn't be able to run. They can find someone to be crew cheif for a day, they only have a few really good cars. I hope he gets it taken away too, since I'm the biggest anti-Jeff Gordon person ever, and they're teammates, naturally I just don't like him either lol.

Bubu, just a little info for ya not only are they teamates, but jeff is or was at one point part owner of that car. He brought jimmy in I'm not anti-jeff because he is a good driver, but I agree with most when they say he's a whiner if you've ever heard him on track pass he'ed give a 5 yr old a run for there money.You have to admit he can do amazing things with a race car sunday he brought that car from the back with barly any transmission.Back to jimmy's team though chad knaus has been fined 8 times in 5 years for cheating thats become to much of a problem to keep over looking.

Agreed with what you said about Knaus. I don't understand why NASCAR still allows him in the races at all now, they're harsh on other people but not him. And when Jeff brought that dang car from the back I was so mad lol...that's part of the reason why I don't like him, he's too good lol! Plus he whines a lot like you said, we used to get the NASCAR In-Car thing on our tv and he never shut up. Thus why we watched Jr. all the time Oh and I believe Jeff is still part owner of that car, they talked about it briefly after the race.
