Had to get voted in to the all star race

Disappointing performance from him to say the least. Mailed it in for the pre-lim race since he knew he had the fan vote in the bag, then once he got there, it looked like he could have cared less about even improving his position during the race.

I root for the guy since he's local but in reality he's just an average driver who has had larger than life expectations thrown at him ever since Sr. died. It's got to be difficult when your name is exactly the same as arguably the greatest stock car driver ever.

People expect way too much from Earnhardt, Jr. Most seem to have a false sense of ability tied to him when in fact he's just another average Cup Driver.

He has these unrealistic expectations put on him because he has been given major NASCAR rides based on his name alone.

He is marginal as a driver at best. I wish we could all admit to that.

Any other year some of this would have even more credence but he's 4th in the standings ahead of such legends as Stewart and Gordon

He rarely crashes a car. I don't think he will ever win a championship, but he will always be lurking around if he continues to finish the race with all the fenders on.

I will say this, I am not a fan of his on the track but he is definitely one kick-ass guy.

So is Junior's real name is David Pearson or Richard Petty?

      Some people think Bo is a pretty fair comparison.

      Didn't Lennie clock a faster top speed than Ted Ginn this year?

    • It's amazing to me that this forum has always been gloves off, but ever since November, sensitivity, not just here but EVERYWHERE, is at an all-time high.  Everyone wants to be mad, everyone wants to be outraged, and everyone is being victimized. TBH, when you have a leader that perpetuates constant chaos and employs vitriol as his only means of communication, don't be surprised when the citizenry adopts that same style of hysteria as a way of life. It's just where we are.  I don't approve of anyone wishing harm on others, nor do I think anything gets solved with name-calling or aggressive finger pointing, but those things have always happened, especially in the TB.  I think the difference is everything is so emotionally-charged both in sending and receiving messages.  IMO, it started with politics and has bled over into everything else...  same crap keeps happening in the main forum - people disagree, people don't like that others disagree with them and beg for them to be silenced or attacked.   Oh well, welcome to 2017.
