Bubba is a national treasure. 28 freaking years old. Just awesome.
I wanted to watch that ESPN special but I missed it. He is old enough now that hopefully he won't throw anymore childish tantrums and he has learned that you don't throw water in the face of a fellow driver while said driver is sitting on the ground receiving medical attention. I was such a bubba fan until that day...but I lost a lot of respect for him after that. I'm starting to get some of that respect back since he started driving for Mr. J, and I'm hoping for a good season for the 23 and 45 cars next year.... Just not as good a season as the 5, 9, 48, and 24 cars though. :D

Bowman deserved every bit of that water.

You never turn a car driver side into the wall.
Alex chose the safest place to get his point across. They were at low speed and there was a safer barrier there and the car verily hit the wall. If he did that on an oval at high speed, then I would agree with you but that wasn't the case. The point must have gotten across because I haven't heard anything about Bubba giving any of the drivers the finger since.

Really? I think you are smarter than to suggest that taking a guy out is the only way to "get a point across." Ask Chase Elliott. Perhaps Bubba should have thanked Alex for keeping safety in mind. What a gentleman. Absurd.

Where in my post, did I suggest taking out a guy was the only way to get a point across? There are many ways to get a point across, but he chose that one just like a lot of the drivers do. All I said was that he did it in a safe place on the track and that it looked like he must have gotten his point across. I hope you start taking the time to comprehend my posts better because I'm not going to keep wasting my time explaining them to you...or maybe you are just trying to troll me into an argument like you do with so many on here.;)

Don't take the bait.

All of Rev's drivers know how to get their point across in a classy way. Just ask Ron Hornaday.

Bowman didn't choose that place....that place was handy, and he chose to wreck Bubba rather than Chase Elliott him.

Maybe that is why Hamlin and Bubba get a long so good...they both know how to throw childish tantrums. Kurt should fit right in because he can show them both how a champion can throw a tantrum. :)
Lately or just past situations?

I’m not a fan. He seems arrogant without the success. On the other hand love Bowman, he seems like such a chill, easy going dude

Brash, but whats wrong with being confident?


You've got to meet Bubba outside of the track, he's legitmately one of the nicest dudes you will talk to. Had the pleasure of bumping into him a few times.

I like him, and I like him a lot. He is going to tell you what he thinks. No bull****. I admire that.
