Hey! Well the driver’s meeting is over. Nothing major but a whole lot of reading of rules and because the rules for this All Star night are so different – everyone listened intently.

When David Hoots, the race director, was finished going over the rules – there was a question only from one driver. Kurt Busch asked if on restarts the leader has the choice of the lane he wants to use? Hoots replied that no the leader must take the inside.

There were secret service guys in the drivers meeting as well – North Carolina Governor Mike Easley showed up at the driver’s meeting and I assume that is why there were secret service checking out the media center today. Guests in the drivers meeting included a Major General from the National Guard, General of the USAF, John Walsh from America’s Most Wanted and the owner of the Atlanta Falcons.

The most significant moment in the driver’s meeting was the mention of Dale Jarrett’s last race…and a long, very long and meaningful standing ovation.

With the recent Kyle Busch events and happenings, it is quite clear that the only haters in the sport are the Junior Nation

Oh yes the hatred for Kyle Busch is not hidden, but the reality is that the Junior Nation is responsible for making Kyle the top of the news!

Yes they are haters, they hat anyone who remotely could affect Dale Jr’s remote possibilities of winning a race. They need to accept it, he is popular because he is not what his father was, he is humble and personable , to everyone, but no matter how much fan inheritance Dale Senior gave to his son…. DALE JR WILL NEVER BE EVEN CLOSE TO WHAT HIS FATHER WAS.

Popularity drives just about anything… except a car, anyhow it will not make you a better driver and it willnot make you win as many championships as your father won, I BELIEVE THAT NO SON OF NASCAR GREATS HAVE SURPASSED THEIR PARENT. THIS SPORT IS NOT LIKE HORSE RACING …GENETICS DOES NOT TAKE SECONDS OFF YOUR LAPS.

SO THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO SAY AND I HOPE YOU DO NOT HOLD BACK, PLEASE HOLD THIS TILL THE END OF YOUR TRANSMISSION BECAUSE I ONLY GET TO LISTEN FROM 5:30 ON TO 7

I LOVE THE SPORT AND THE RIVALRIES BUT DALE JUNIOR HAS SO MUCH PRESSURE FROM HIS FANS TO BE LIKE HIS FATHER THAT IT WILL NEVER AMOUNT TO ANYTHING!!!!

he will end up like Kyle Petty living under a shadow THAT SLOWS HIM DOWN,

and I will predict that you will get calls of people being happy and gloating for what happened to Kyle Busch, and I will Bet that all if not most will be Junior Fans..

JUnior has class but some of his fans do not know such thing exists. GO ahead and relay this and irritate the Junior nation

I am glad all the pressure is on him
that will leave JPM off the hook so that he can get better and win a championship perhaps sooner than Junior will because of his fans.

Take care

José
and watch out for the #42 it is not if? …he will be a champion it is a mater of when!!!!!
