Kyle isn't winning! Dale is going to FINALLY get out of his funk...don't worry I am not holding my breath so I will be here after the race when anyone but Kyle wins LOL!!!!!
I like going to the track too but I must sit high enough to see the whole track and the TV screen for when I miss a wreck and the pits! if I cant see the pits I feel like I miss half the race! I also must have a scanner last few times I rented that fan scan...that thing is so cool just like watching it on tv!!

Y'all are so much fun to banter with !!!! I also have no hate for anyone on this earth, but Harvick sure is trying my patience with that one LOL!.

Looking forward to the race this weekend here in my hometown. Have been tossing up getting tickets, but my hubby likes watching it on t.v. better. I like being at the track - oh but the ride home is awful. May regret not going when Kyle wins :)

exactly Val! If there wasn't someone you didn't like to see win racing would be boring! Everyone needs to have their guy (soon to be woman option) that's what makes things interesting :)

Don't get me wrong, GeorgiaDeb. I love watching Kyle race...I just hate seeing him win. emoticon I think that sometimes he acts like a real butt (or as JennyD says, he's not always particularly mature) but even if you hate him (which, by the way, I do NOT) he's fun as heck to watch. Makes for some darned exciting racing. (I truly do not hate anyone on this earth, so of course I do not hate Kyle. Don't really like him, but I don't hate him and it's really fun to watch him make a butt of himself...)

There was much rejoicing!

LOL a smack talk thread sounds like fun but you would have to put a disclaimer in the beginning, no crying just talking LOL

PS I still don't think Kyle is mature...

Oh man you Kyle haters are killing me emoticon .

Seriously though - if you look at his record this year and all that he has accomplished and his growth and maturity - he is championship ready. Also - he is the most sought after driver for commercial endorsements and sponsorships. He has a certain charisma to him that people like - bad boy going good. Kind of like the old WWF/Hulk Hogan thing.

I have nothing in particular against Jr. I feel for him because of the large shadow he has following him. But he is the name/face of NASCAR right now not because of who he is, but because of who his dad was. Maybe one day, he'll come into his own.

I love the whole Harvick/Busch thing but man Harvick plays dirty too and then puts on the face of innocence and has the old man do his dirty work for him. I am amazed Kyle didn't press charges against Childress for assaulting him, but that is the maturity thing coming out - cause you know if it had been the other way around - they would have had him (Kyle) locked up if he put Childress in a headlock and started punching him in the face - if only to take him out of the championship contention!

I do love these smack talks :) BTW - we probably need to start a "smack talk" thread instead of this "leaving team" thread!!!

Half the fun is getting mad because Kyle has the best damn luck and Junior has the worst. No I don't like Jimmie winning another championship but I don't think Kyle deserves to win a championship either. Jimmie hasn't had the best of luck but he will probably overcome, he always does as "they" say that is what makes a champion. One of these days I will get my wish of Kyle wrecking and not finishing and Junior winning but until then I will just watch and listen to the war of words between Kevin and Kyle :)

Vali - I agree with you to a certain extent - I'm sick of watching JJ win the championship. But I don't think I'll ever get bored watching Kyle do a burnout.

I do remember the complacency when the Braves (I'm from Georgia) were winning back to back to back to back, etc. for 10 straight years. It did get old after a few years, but only because there was no "surprise" to it anymore. And nothing to gripe about. Hey your teams winning (or driver's winning) so what's to whine or commiserate about? I think that's what us sports fans like - win some, lose some and you got something to really talk about. Look at Jr's fans. But when he wins - oh gosh - it will be talked about for the next few years.

I may take all this back in a few years if Kyle wins back to back championships or more, but for now, he's still exciting to watch. And that's the great thing about NASCAR - you have a field of 40 (or more) - it's anyone's race to win!

But this weekend is the trifecta for me - college ball (Go DAWGS), NFL (go Falcons) and racing at Atlanta (go #18).

I actually like most of the drivers so when Jeff doesn't win I've got other guys to cheer for. I love seeing first time winners and I really like to see some of the younger guys who will be the stars of the next NASCAR generation win races. The only ones I don't like to see win are Kyle Bush and Jimmie Johnson. They're good enough guys and they are both very talented drivers. But I've come to know how most people were feeling back in the days when Gordon was winning 4 out of 5 championships and 13 races in one year...it just gets old seeing the same guys win everything after a while...

There was much rejoicing!

Jenny LOL!!!! I love Kyle! Think he is one of the most talented drivers out there. But if he gets knocked out of a race - I root for Joey Logano or (gulp) Carl Edwards (sorry JGR). Carl's just a great guy.

Everyone has good races/bad races and yes, Gordon, Junior and others are in a slump - but it's still great to watch. I wish you weren't leaving the team though - but do understand and wish you well in all you do!

you have only one driver that you follow? I'm sorry you feel this way but even though Dale is my main guy I follow many more...as long as Kyle is not winning I am happy!

I'm sorry that your driver has been doing poorly and that you feel that you should leave the team. Are you a Jeff Gordon fan? I am, and he has really kind of sucked for several years, which has sometimes caused my interest to dwindle, too. Regardless of who your driver is or whether or not you ever come back to the team, I wish you good luck with everything in your life.

There was much rejoicing!

emoticon Fellow NASCAR fans I regret to have to tell you but I am departing this team as my interest in NASCAR has dwindled; with my driver doing so poorly now I figure I will wait and see how he does before deciding to come back.
