    You'll see things differently when this gets folded into the "I want Jr's baby" thread. ;)

    If memory serves me correctly, some years ago, DaleJr was asked about naming a son Ralph Dale Earnhardt III. He said
    he wouldn't do it.

    Why does it blow my mind that he is only a couple of years younger that Gordon, and there's an expectation that Jeff's retirement is sooner rather than later.

    Gordon got started out at such a young age that he seems so much older, but guys like Kenseth (only about half a year younger), Harvick, Johnson, Jr., McMurray, Biffle, and so on are all getting up there too. Gordon did have the misfortune or taking so many hard hits in the 90's though, when safety standards weren't nearly what they are now. The others haven't taken the pounding he has, which makes the longevity of Mark Martin's career even more remarkable.

  29. Actually, Jeff Gordon rarely crashed hard in the 90s, there were a very few times when he crashed at all, he was very good at avoiding trouble. It's the reason he won sooo many races during that decade. I think his first time even being upside down was like 2012 in the season opening Bud Shootout. His crashes have gotten harder as he's increased in age. Dunno if that means his reflexes are slowing or what...

    A little bit morbid, me looking for Gordon crashes but here's a comp from way back till recently. Just ignore the very shittay music.

    Not many crashes but when he did so, the guy really committed. Hard hits or no, most of his crashes have been on concrete walls.

    ChexOrWrex I'm so unbothered and that is what bothers people

    He still does that now. Charlotte, pocono, las vegas, the glen...

    The only difference is now we have SAFER barriers. Back then it was pure solid no give concrete.

    He doesnt crash much but when he does its usually full throttle into the wall.

    The man is tough as nails.
