  1. Another 1.9 rating for NBCSN……NBC pulls around 3.3….Brain-dead France strikes again !!!!

    Not sure how many more back-marker races I can watch I have enough problems depressing me without bad cars,rotten crew chiefs and suspect driving….I really hope Junior is not driving scared…if so – hand Bowman the keys now.

  2. jr to run xfinity car at bristol and richmond , that will be great to see jr to run his own car and compete for a win without greg on the box … jr also said his car was good at start of race and got worst as the race went on , i say its because greg was fixing it ,

    I hate how it’s going also. Trust me, the whole team feels terrible about the results. Its obviously the right decision for me to step aside

    1. I saw that! That’s bad. I’m not going to lie. It had crossed my mind this year that he just wasn’t the same as he was before the concussion due to the amount of mistakes that he’s had this year. However, for him to say that is really bad. He is running the NXS race this week for JRM. Maybe if he runs well in that race it’ll help him with his confidence?

  14. you know , its true jr did rides his father scoat tales to popularity , BECAUSE he was the only kid in the pits watching his father , being in the pits at victory lane with his fathers rooting him on , and earned his popularity through the sport , by being in the camera light and then by racing his way into the sport , dale sr did not help him win he didnt give him the wins , jr earned his wins by beating the drivers that half the drivers today never raced aginst , half the drivers today would not have the wins they have ,bcause they would have been wrecked out for being in the way of these guyes , wallace ,labonte , rudd , craven , pearson jerret , dale sr , elliot shit these new drivers dont know what its like to drive aginst real race car drivers . so being popular inst about winning championships it about being able to race and the agony of defeat . and coming back the next race and beating the best drivers in the world , also have the grace of saying i just wasnt good enough to beat them ,just because hes not winning every race hes in dont mean shit , he has already proven he can win , and to all the hatters out there GO POUND SAND , YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE SPORT IF YOU CANT GET THE TRUE MEANING OF BEING POPULAR [ DROP THE MIKE ]

  17. harvick is just mad because hes not popular hes an ass he got luck enough to take over the car dale sr drovce and thought he would be popular because of it guess what didnt happen , , and as far a jimmy not being popular with having 7 championships , because no one like a mommas boy money back sisy pants driver , jr is popular because hes a real man not because of his father , because hes just like us the real fans loves to drive fast , come from nothing hard working stiffs , that made he way , from being a screwoff to making a life of racing beer drinking home boy red neck down home good old guy , now these new kids will take a while to be popular , maybe chace will have the same life as his father , bill he will be the one who rides his father coat tales ,and be chastized because of it when jrs gone

  18. Reading other driver’s statements I see a lot of jealousy under the surface….as far as Harprick , praying Junior wrecks him before the end of the year. I do believe I am going to bring my voodoo cars out of retirement and sharpen my pins !!!!!

    1. I’ll have to wait because it’s on the damned NBCSN again. So, I can’t watch it.
      Only two more days until my cable TV gets cut off because I am not renting a converter box for each TV in my house nor buying any sports package to watch the Turdotafest. Spectrum can stick it up their ass.

      Good luck, Junior. You’re going to need it against the stacked deck.

  23. yes i think put ting young drivers in those car will cost hms lots of money in wrecked cars but if the cars are not fast then it wont cost that much anyways , especially with the new chevys coming out it just might cost big bucks

  24. Is anyone else concerned that putting Byron in the 5 will be as bad a move as putting Logano in the 20 was?I know having JJ for a senior member is much better than Krylie and Dimmy was for Logano but HMS is going to be pretty light on experience.

      1. The 88 and 5 teams have not been all that impressive as of late. Junior team has consistantly put crap cars on the track this year. Hope is for speed for sure. Honestly I don’t think I’ll be all that concerned with Junior gone anyway.
