    Nascar Fans

    Hey anybody got any ideas what's going on between the 24 and 48? I kind of like it. Adds a little more to the sport.

    Only what I head Jeff say on the pre race shows.

    It's all for show. They are doing it to just add a little 'controversy' to the show.

    Nope it wasn't "professional". I kind of go with Brent. Adds to the TV value. But 48's stunts in the last 2 races were close to causing the "Big One". For the record, I am not a 24 fan or 48.

    Just started watching Nascar 2 seasons ago. Got the big screen hd tv and decided I should watch some sort of sports, so picked Nascar

    I'm still not sure who I'm a fan of...

    I don't have the history to be a Dale Jr. fan.

    I don't feel like being a fan of a front runner.

    I used to HATE Kyle Bush, especially when he tried and failed to do a pete townsend on the guitar, but have grudgingly begun to have some respect for him lately...

    Just like the strategy involved in the whole racing thing...

    Whats realy funney about the whole Gordon/Jihnson thing is that Jeff Gordon is half owner of the 48 team.

    I've watched it for a lot longer then you Brent, Used to Be a dale Sr. fan and when he got killed I just stuck with Jr. Even as hard as it's been these last few years. I kinda am pulling for Mark Martin although it looks to me like he won't make it into the top 12.

    Doh! Forgot about Mark. I guess you could say I am a fan of Mark. Total class act, IMHO.

    I can tell you what's going on.
    Jimmie is winning and Jeff is not.
    I think Jimmie is feeling some pressure now to keep winning. I think it's all about to start falling apart for him though.
