Junior!

Give the man credit... It's idiots like you that keep bringing up the #3 to gauge JR's career.

 

Dillon has a lot on his shoulders - I don't think NASCAR, RCR, or Dale Jr would let that # go easy if it weren't in good hands. 

 

Austin is a big time Panthers fan BTW.

Not saying nascar is fixed but if you wanted to fix it, there is no easier place to do so than at a plate track. Make the plate a bit bigger and you have all the horses you need to run up front.

Jr winning Daytona should be a surprise to no one. I mean Danica even runs up front there. It is a track where equipment means everything. In a race where half the field was wrecked and the real dominate car (Hamlin) didn't have radio communications, it's just indicative of Jr being upfront and being one of the 5 or 6 people that could have won the race. He came on the short end the last few years but right place, right time this year.

Dale Jr looked like he was gonna dominate NASCAR in his father's footsteps early on.

 

He couldn't even beat Matt Kenseth for rookie of the year. The only people that have ever considered Dale Jr as a dominant force are the fans that he inherited from daddy.

2001: 8th, 3 wins, 9 top 5

2002: 11th, 2 wins, 11 top 5

2003: 3rd, 2 wins, 13 top 5

2004: 5th, 6 wins, 16 top 5

Yes, he was very good his first few years. And that was with dealing with his father's death. Then DEI fell apart & he never really recovered.

The sport was also in a period of turnover where some really good drivers were about to break in...Hamlin, Kes, Logano, Bowyer, just to name a few.  

Look, Michael Waltrip won in DEI equipment.  It was good stuff.

WOOOOOOOOOO!! Blue Deuce ftw!  Hopefully this doesn't deter Letarte from these kinds of calls, it's this kind of aggression that will give Dale these kinds of opportunities throughout the season.

It was a great call by letarte..they weren't going to win or come in 2nd if they pitted..they almost won and even after the hiccup they still came in 2nd.. hell of a day!

The hot start continues, it is hard to be mad at running out of fuel when he wouldn't have even had a top 5 without the gamble.

 

True. Those are the chances he and his team are able to (and need to) take now.

And Jr isn't a top ten driver. I don't want to go on a junior bashing parade but he is a 20th place driver in the absolute best equipment out there. 

 

I can't get over how stupid this is. The only ones better than him are Johnson, Kenseth, maybe Kyle Busch, and Harvick.

 

Paul Menard is a 20th place driver. A 20th place driver doesn't post 6 straight top-5s and wins the Daytona 500 and is still leading the points.

 

But carry on. Nothing will change your mind.

Jimmie Johnson couldn't even beat Ryan Newman for rookie of the year.
