LMAO at Jeffy dissing his boy Jimmuh.

Congrats to Happy!

What a day - crash out early and still pick up points. Matt got screwed by Sadler.

Thanks wreckers

This was one of the best races I have seen in a long time I wish they all could be as good as this one.

I think this feud is manufactured to make sure all the rednecks have can pick one side or the other and stay interested....

My long hair can't cover up my redneck. And I still won every fight I ever fought.


They can beat and bang on each other at Richmond.

That's precisely it. The old school hilljack contingency hates them both. This will encourage them to tune in and watch the two wreck each other each week, as well as pick which guy they hate slightly less than the other.

It's brilliant marketing by NASCAR.

it might be if it were remotely based on reality.

NASCAR doesnt have to worry about the hiljacks tuning in. that fanbase is solid and die hard, regardless of any soap opera slapfest between the rainbow warriors.

its the trendy northeastern and west coast, corporate bandwagon fans, who have jumped ship on the sport just as quickly as they had embraced it.

its no coincidence that jeff gordon had appealed to that base (which had definitely become a HUGE fanbase).

its also no coincidence that you no longer see all the gordon gear anymore and it is primarily gordon fans who say they dont even watch racing anymore because it has become "boring " in the past 4 years. (i wonder why... probably because "their guy" is no longer the front runner, every year.)

WHAAAAAAAA!!!!

jeffy being the tough guy and no longer rolling over for his teammate is a great internal strategy to being his fans back.

i doubt it will work though... as the fad has passed.

im all for anything that will keep them around, as it is what's best for the sport, and helped nationalize it.

but then again, easy come, easy go.

Johnson takes blame for incident with Gordon

#48-Jimmie Johnson took the blame for making a mistake that ultimately led to teammate #24-Jeff Gordon's wreck at Talladega Superspeedway. Johnson said he was trying to slide in front of Gordon late in Sunday's race so the two Hendrick Motorsports drivers could draft together toward the front. But, he said Gordon was coming too fast. Johnson's move instead had the effect of a block, and Gordon was forced off the apron in a defensive move. His momentum gone, Gordon slide back in traffic and was caught moments later in a multi-car crash. "I misjudged the closing rate," Johnson said. "We all make mistakes, I am no different. Certainly, that was my fault. I made the mistake there." Gordon, who drove his damaged car to a 22nd-place finish, was furious with his teammate after the race. "The 48 is testing my patience, I can tell you that," Gordon said Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway. "It takes a lot to make me mad." Johnson was involved in his own accident later and finished 31st. Johnson had already left the track when Gordon, also a four-time series champion, talked of his frustration with his teammate. "I would have stuck around if I knew what was waiting for me," Johnson said. But Johnson again dismissed any notion of a rift with Gordon. The two tangled a week ago at Texas Motor Speedway, but downplayed any potential tensions. "There's no doubt after the fact that frustrations are high, the wreck just compounded it," Johnson said. "I think he was speaking out of frustration.

I'm still a huge Gordon fan, as well as a JJ and Jr. fan. I will be proudly sporting my #24 shirt at Dover at the end of September!

Guess my tongue-in-cheek posts were lost on the.....um.....less astute posters.
