Well, perhaps we can agree to disagree.
I'll certainly agree that Nascar is more competitive than in his dad'* day.....
As far as personality, that is one of the reasons I don't like him, but to each thier own. I am by no means stating I am right and you are wrong, just giving my opinion.
While it may have been dificult to live up to the name, I still wonder if he would have had the opportunities if it weren't for the name. Perhaps he would have, we'll never know.
I did come across one thing this morning that I must give him some credit for....
# Dale Jr, gets debris in eye, is ok:
#8-Dale Earnhardt Jr. led at
Martinsville until the rain showers came, causing a 33-minute red flag
period on lap 357. Dale Jr. climbed back into his car as the leader,
showered in debris from a stationary jet track dryer. Some of the
became lodged in Dale Jr'* left eye, but he was able to continue.
That could not have been easy...I wouldn't want to deal with that and he certainly should not have had to.
I got that out of an email from thats racing, not sure if the article was on espn or jayski if you are interested.
Either way, I am by no means criticizing you for your choice of drivers, I am simply stating I get annoyed seeing 8'* everywhere I go. As for as my original post, I did state that if he crosses the line first I would have been okay with that, just didn't want him to win due to a rain delay..(like Waltrip at Daytona, I know you remember that!)
I HATE to see anyone win or lose due to someting other than driving abiltiy (like rian, a wreck, car failure or maybe a piece of asphalt coming out of the track, like happenned to Gordon). I like to see a good clean fight.
Any who, I hope we can handle this like civil gentlemen.....and I hope I have not been disrespectful, that'* not my style.
Let me buy you a drink...pehaps a Bud?
