George Diaz: Dale Earnhardt Jr. victory is 'incredible' day for NASCAR

Jun 18, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Orlando Sentinel

He chugged along four consecutive years, always failing to meet the expectations of a fan base that loved him unconditionally.

Well Yes I agree with you on the fan end of the deal. Jr probably an alright guy but his fan base ruins it for most everyone. They think he is the greatest driver that ever climbed in a car but have no idea why. Every trucker on the road is a JR fan and you ought he hear the dumbasses call into Sirius everyday. You can't even understand them talking thru the big gaps in their teeth.

Consider the source, Texas. Reread their posts and you can tell these two are really wholesome, upstanding citizens with totally unbiased opinions. NOT!!!!!!!! They're really a couple of small minded rednecks that can only verbalize their opinion with crude and senseless remarks that have no place in print. Pay them no attention. They have no idea of how hard Jr. has tryed to not live in his father's image, but to be his own person. They're small little minds that feel betrayed because Jr. hasn't been the "bad boy" copy of his father for them. Whether he ever wins another race will not change how much so many truely care about this young man because we understand how hard he's worked to be a success in his own right.

But the truth is if it weren't for his old man he'd be nothing.

Just another crytal ball post. How could you ever say that if Sr had just worked in the mills in Kannapolis and been a regular guy that his son could not have been a stockcar driver in Cup?? Jr is his own man, his own personality and for anyone to expect him to be his Dad or his Grandfather is just asking for to much. Fact is, a lot of sons grow up and do what their Dads did, some see matched success and some dont, just the way it is. Jr is not a carbon copy of Sr and I like that, I was his Dads fan and now Im his fan. Not because of his Dad but because I liked him from the start when he was racing at Myrtle Beach and other tracks in the southeast. Jr had something special in his own right from the start of his career. Now, thats my perspective but Im sure some of his fanbase is a result of his Dad and the Earnhardt name, but thats alright, Kyle Petty and his son Adam inherited fans from The Kings success. Chase Elliott will inherit fans from his Dads success. Davey Allison inherited fans from his Dad. It just happens that way. And it was an incredible day for NASCAR Sunday when Jr took the checkered for the first time in a long time. But bias and pure hate for the guy will bubble up because it just happens that way too. Im glad we live in a country where we can pick our favorites and pull for them freely and only have to put up with a small degree of ignorance from others bias and hate.

Why do you consider Joonyer's win incredible for Nascar? I thought that's why they race, to win.

Yep, thats right, wins are the goal. When was the last time the 24 had a win??? Hes 20th in the standings and 190 points out of first place.........he he he. Just thought Id mention that to you Mr hatchet. He has only 4 wins since 2008, not too much better than Jr. It would be an incrediable day for NASCAR when Jeff Gordon wins again!!!!!! LOL LOL

LOL Its really eatin at you guys that Jr won Sunday. I bet the fact that hes only 4 points out of first place in the points and having a very good run this season is rippin your guts out. I dont make predictions cause they are useless and have absoulutley no merit but if, and I say if, Jr was to win the championship, I just cant help but wonder what the reaction from trollville would be. I can see it now, every excuse in the world would be made, it would all be fixed, Mr Hendricks paid people off, NASCAR influenced the championship win. It would be worth Jr winning it just to see how trollville makes up every scenerio to discredit JR and the 88 team. It has been kinda quiet though, since Sunday, guess that crow is choking a bunch of the trollers that diss Jr. LOL Im laughing hard at trollville!

Try living in the present and not the past. Yesterday is gone and cant nothin be done about it. If you were in the present day you could see the incredibleness of it all. What a struggle its been but victory sure tastes sweet. To see any driver tap the bottom like Jr did and then rebound to have the success hes having now is incredible. But you cant see that with all that silly hate in your eyes!!!

If you can prove that race was fixed, then do it. You dont realize how many people it would take to pull that off and keep it quiet. NASCAR could not afford a scandal like that and your claim is just another miserable try at makin fun of Jr's success, any success. Besides that knowing Kyle Bush and knowing how competitive he is, he would never agree to throw a race he was competing in. Your imagination is all thats incredible here, LOL your crazy!!!

Jr would not be as popular if it weren't for his Dad...true...but what does that have to do with your sick comment about Dale Sr's terrible accident.

If you don't like Jr...whatever...but maybe...just maybe... you should think about it before you hit the "post comment" button.

Races are not fixed...jr won with a strong lead

That said, cautions and post race inspections can be questionable..

Frankly, I'd like to see the race format changed to insure close racing...Maybe incorporate segmenting to mini-dashes...it's hard to compete with other sports without adding drama/excitement in today's entertainment world...
