The chosen one wins!

At work today, I merely pointed out that NASCAR's golden boy equaled the Daytona 500 win totals of Michael Waltrip & Sterling Marlin and you would have thought that I had committed some crime by NOT saying Jr. is the greatest driver in NASCAR today! His greatness is ONLY surpassed by his late father's. GEESH!!! Don't get me wrong, I AM NOT a Jr. hater. I do however put things into perspective. Honestly, I'll admit that my favorite driver doesn't even rank in the top 10 all time statistically (except for cup championships with 3), but I digress. Jr-nation, let's look at his career shall we? (feel free to google these stats...they are correct & up to date) He has 20 wins, that ties him with Speedy Thompson, and puts him ahead of Greg Biffle Fonty Flock & Goeff Bodine, but behind Jack Smith. He has 13 poles, just ahead of Charlie Glotzbach & Greg Biffle, but behind Glen Wood & Dave Marcis. Based on his stats, his career is SLIGHTLY better than that of Greg Biffle. He also has the same number of championships as Danica Patrick & Jeff Gordon's brother (& Jeff Gordon doesn't have a brother).

I don't think he is the greatest either. I think he's a stand up guy, but not the best driver out there. For actual DRIVERS these days, I give it to the Busch brothers. Both of them can damn near drive ANYTHING. Stewart is another one.

Agreed, he does seem to be a stand up guy. I don't hate the guy at all. In fact I'll pull for him over a lot of other drivers...it's just that some of the fans can't see past their noses. Basically,what happened was, I laughed and said that he matched waltip & marlin...and this dude gets all pissy talking about Jr is better than any driver out there. I just told him to check the stats. You'd have thought I had questioned his mother's virtue!!!!
Stewart is my favorite and DW before him. Sad thing is most people only know DW as a goofy announcer or a guy who ran at the back of the pack, I'm old enough to remember when he won A LOT and ran his mouth the whole time he was doing it saying "it ain't braggin' if ya can back it up"

I liked JPM. I wish him well in open wheels. He had his moments. Good road racer and he seemed to have Indy figured out, but it just wasn't meant to be.

this is bad....stop me if you've heard it...how many NASCAR drivers does it take to hit a jet dryer?.......
