Haha, funny to see a NASCAR post on here, but I'm with you Suitanim. Everyone disparages Jeff because he's the best. The same thing happened with Dale Earnhardt, Sr. He was a "villain" for a long time, and still viewed as one by some people at the time of his death.

It's time for Jeff to add to his trophy collection. The competition is tougher now, with all of the younger guys, but I think he can get it done this year.

While he is not my favorite driver... I respect his game, and he will go down as one of the all time greats.

Wha? Dude! I'm cheering on Jimmie to win the Nextel Cup in 2006...(lol). But good luck to his teammate, Jeffy-Poo, in trying to make it 5! :smile:

Gordon is commonly referred to as "Jeffy-Poo" in the racing world? Wow, I thought that was just my nickname for him. I think I should get royalties from it then, dammit...(lol).

I'm not a big fan of Jeff's because, well, we went through all that last season and I have no intention of going there again. But I do respect him as one of the best NASCAR drivers of all time, as well as Jimmie's teammate. For that reason, I will support Jeff in his quest for championship #5, and Suit as a loyal fan of Jeff's.

You just don't like Jeff and Jimmie, tony. :rofl:

No, no, no... Not Ernie and Bert, baby. It's Jeff and Jimmie. This year's Daytona 500 will be brought to you by the letter http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y142/whitediamonds/ed694890.gif.

NASCAR is like the WWE of racing there are multiple little stories within the race, teammates, owners, rivalries. I persoanally am a big auto fan period... I like cars and many different forms of racing (my favorite is American Lemans/SPEED GT). Naturally what drew me to NASCAR was the cars... I also like the drivers, various sponsors, and paint jobs found on the circuit.

After watching for a couple years you relize that there is alot more to it than cars going fast in a circle. The cars are so closely matched that each team must figure out what set up makes their car go faster than the next. What you end up with is 40+ drivers and cars pushing the absolute limit of the car/track on the verge of disaster. Quite entertaining...

What really got me hooked was picking out my favorite driver after watching with my friends for a few months, and of course going to my first race. It was a memorable experience and I've been a big fan ever since.

Not trying to hi-jack your thread Suit... just wanted to answer Koop's question. :smile:

racing is the oldest form of competition known to man. the marathon was the 1st sport in the olympics. in fact i would say mankind is genetically wired to get somewhere faster than the next man. i would also say were wired to push technology to the brinks. it is why the wheel was invented. it is why the u.s. and ussr raced to put a man on the moon.

personally i love riding roller coasters. they cant build one i wont go on. some people dont like it though. i get a rush watching the beginning of the daytona 500 and the in car camera views that is similar to actually riding a roller coaster. i like the feeling of driving on an off ramp as fast as you can possibly go and that feeling of being on the edge of crashing. it is a thrill.

Ever read the tech section at NASCAR.com? About 40 minutes of reading will show just about anybody that "43 guys driving around in circles" is just about the farthest thing from the truth.

In this respect, the Europeans are eons ahead of us...they regard professional racers as pilots.

I'm not a JG fan (I am a Dale Jr fan) but I have respect for him and I like to watch him race.
