Haha!  Worst statement ever.

 

 

You mean like most (if not all) drivers who won a championship through the Chase?

 

If you don't remember Jimmie Johnson pretty much had it won on multiple occasions but then he had several accidents that were basically acts of God.

He had nothing won.  Brad kept the lead in points throughout most of the chase, as well as would have won the championship in the old format.

 

There was luck, but it wasn't like Jimmie handed the championship at all.  That's a pointless statement trying to discredit an excellent year.

 

Next you'll tell me that Jeff Gordon is still relevant as a championship contender.

Haha its wasnt Rick Hendrick who gave any opportunities to BK it was Dale Jr.. Yes Rick Hendrick an investor in JR motorsports but thats about it ,he had no role in putting brad in the seat of 88 nationwide car. In fact he said he didnt have any room for him at Hendrick(due to the recent announcement of Khane replacing Martin) and said he could run part time in cup. That is what lead Bk to Penske

I think its funny that you cant give brad any credit for doing what no-one else has been able to do.
Out preform JJ and the 48 team. Yes Stewart won it the year before but he was battling Edwards not Johnson. Brad and the 2 team was better and beat the 48..they surely didn't win it due to the 48 loosing it.

MQ I am looking at what he is doing this year and saying this year.  Even Penske said he didn't have his facts right but he would stick with his driver.  He stuck with Kurt B. too.  Talk all you want...but have it right.  He driving sucks this year too.  He sounds like a mad Grandmother.

They'll get it together.  If Penske can win a championship as the only team with a certain manufacturer, then they can perform well with Ford.  Keselowski and Stewart are the only two true contenders for the 48.

 

Come chase time, I'd put money on the 2 team to be ready to rock.

I think you're selling a lot of guys short. At this point Stewart and Keselowski might not even make the chase.  I think it's looking like a two horse race between Kenseth and Johnson at the moment. 

 

 

I'd LOVE Kevin Harvick or Dale Jr. to win the title I just don't think Jr. can get enough wins to get the title and I don't think Harvick can be consistent enough to finally win one.

Keselowski will make the chase, not a doubt in my mind.  Today (I believe) was their "moment".  They got caught up in a disaster, but returned to gain 7 spots after being 100+ laps down.

 

Harvick lacks the consistency, and let's not kid ourselves, Dale, Jr. is NOT a championship caliber race car driver.  He seems to lack the one trait that most champions have, and that's the ability to overcome all obstacles.

As much as I would like to see bk repeat I think ccs is right about it comming down to jj or kenseth
..only bad thing for kenseth is that it seems like the jgr teams seem to fold during the chase.. so who knows what could happen.

Brad Keslowski is old school and doesn't give a fug

 

Daddy...I've heard this a lot.  Just what is your definition of "old school"?   What is any ones def.?

 

I saw the Davey Allison  program on speed where they told his story and this kid was amazing.  He never whinned or pouted.  He wasn't peeing in a corner in a hospitality tent or swearing or throwing owners under the bus (Hendrick was part owner and Gibbs was the owner for Joey...I find it interesting that it was their past owners.  I'm not ok with throwing any owners under the bus by the way.).

 

I am not too uptight about things but I do not think this behavior makes this kid old school.

 

In all seriousness, what is your definition of old school?
