Stewart VS. Johnson: 2012's Title Bout?

Mar 13, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: AllLeftTurns.com

It was almost like watching Richard Petty vs. David Pearson. Lap after lap, the second place driver stalks the leader, looking for a bobble, a slide, a slip to pounce upon.

yep, the fans know . we do NOT like JJ nor Chad. they are finished with us. done !!
JJ thinks he is tops. maybe at home but not with fans. I have also lost respect of Hendrick. can not stand to see his face. all cheaters. money talks.

Tony says that what is special about his group of guys is that every single one of them is a racer at heart.. they have all been involved in racing all their lives,, not a football player off season hired to be the jackman... I think that racing mentality is the cohesion that elevates SHR to the pinnacle of racing at this time.
I am very happy for Tony that he was given the opportunity to bring his excellence to the cup series as he had brought it to every level he has been involved in.
If you can find it,, on GAC DTV channel they have this show called The Definative,, it has Petty and Gordon on as well, but of course the one about Tony is fascinating.. His mother says he has oil for blood... Tony does not race primarily for wealth or fame.. but for racing itself.. He LOVES racing and THAT is what matters when it gets down to real racing and not rocket science taking racing out of racing.

Don't forget Hendrick's # 1 cheating team, the 88.

They must not be any good at it, since the 88 hasn't had a win in 4 years.

That's because Jr is behind the wheel; NASCAR revenues are way down, they will do any and everything to get Jr a championship.

then they need to do more, because so far its not working.

JR is just not championship material-doesn't have the drive nor the ambition nor the desire to work to earn it....think his stepmother was right in her assessment...he'd prefer to be a celebrity than a racer.

Do I still hope that he can win? You know, it'd be nice, but I don't see it happening. And yes, I still consider myself a fan of JR, but im also a realist....this man is not championship material.

With the way he's running now I strongly disagree with all of this.

Doesn't really matter who's in the first 10 spots right now..things can and do change. The question is will he be able to maintain and finally break his winless streak?

I dunno. Like I said, I hope so. At least then they can finally stop asking the question of "are you feeling close to a win?"

He finishing 14th in last nights nationwide race, not very impressive. Danica finished 7th so maybe Jr. will want to drive the 7 car next time. They have given him everything but Chad since he's been at Hendrick and he hasn't been able to close the deal. Obvious where the problem lies!

it is my personal opinion of Jr that he is coasting... HE did not desire to replace his father at NASCAR... HE likes to race and he is the first one to speak out when NASCAR pulls some crap... which is good...
But,, the Mark Martin "you need to stop racing every lap" stuff is what HMS worked on Jr... they now will perhaps focus on Kasey that way because that truly IS his problem... glad Tony got that thinking out of HIS head when he knew he was getting Zippy and Addington to come over to help him get the best equipment so he did not have to hope to be the guy who fooled the rest on pit road just in case the other favored guy ran out of gas, which is what darian tried to do to Tony prechase last year, which Tony did not appreicate since it AIN'T real racing.
IF Junebug got another deal outside HMS... he could be a racer once again.. he is now Mark Martin,,, and it was strange of him to say that about David R last week,,, he should "understand" that guy's gotta try to finish the race no matter what position... But again.. that is HMS position.. to ALWAYS believe that even if the idiots leading the race stayed out on ANCIENT tires that WOULD be passed as soon as they passed the start finish line., if that group contained the 48,,, the entire HMS organization HAD to figure out who to BLAME for another car actually PASSING that cheating 48 car... and THAT is reality...
but I think Jr is coasting into the sunset at HMS... as long as he provides HMS with t shirt money... they don't care... they need to feed the beast that IS the cheaters Chad and Jimmie and occasionally Jeffro... they probably LIKE that Jr doesn't really care to live up to the hype anymore.
and who might be at the bottom of this??? little ole steve letarte perhaps... they call him a "life coach",,, well, I guess taking the competition out of people is what his job is at HMS.. cuz he did it to Jeffro too... I guess this is because at HMS they see only ONE guy winning everything season after season... and they focused on making Jimmie and Chad, the cheaters, the only cockey jerks who will NOT admit when they do not deserve to win...that is the monster HMS has created ... we can only hope and PRAY the next move for stevie is to replace Chad so Jimcreep can quit being an egotistical expectant of every win every week, unworthy or less unworthy.

<quoted text>Nonsense, Chad isn't a liability to anyone. He could pick his team anywhere if he decided to leave HMS. I don"t believe the chemistry between he and Jimmie is as good as it used to be though. They don't talk to each other on the radio like they use to.
do you think any teams wants the scrutiny that chad now brings. NASCAR is wise to him now, anywhere he goes is going to be more scrutinized than the rest, because he can not help but cheat and NASCAR knows that.That is what makes him a liability rather than asset.
