    Dopey Matt D with the pouty face, looking for a hug. Crap. :rolleyes::D

    I put my dog down 2 weeks ago.
    Dug a grave for him.
    Had tears in my eyes as I dug.
    Didn't need a hug.
    I just cared about him.
    Guess I'm a wuss.

    Big difference -- grieving for a beloved dog vs feeling sorry for yourself...

    Matt D puts on a pretty good front, but I believe he is a phony.

    Every young Nascar driver goes through a training stage. None of them in my opinion are the real
    person. However, regardless of what they say or how they act, they must still perform in the car and I think Matt has done that.

    It's almost as if he's a forum poster required to submit his stuff to a moderator before it's allowed to hit the page.

    Truex_rox 19 looks better than ever.

    Because the story we have watched unfold right in front of our eyes in the form of a young man outperforming garbage equipment for years before finally getting a bit of an opportunity to achieve more in LFR machinery, only to be shuffled aside within a year, then thankfully find a new competitive ride and potentially be destined for great things is all just plain phony.

    Where do you people come up with this stuff?

    I’m happy he’s going to be driving the Wood Bros. 21, probably my favorite car since Pearson drove it.

    Hope he drives well and with honor.

    MattyD does a great job representing whomever he drives for. He just seems genuinely appreciative to be in the sport with the chance to drive. Hard not to like that type of guy.

    Everybody has an image. His is appealing. Winners don't have to work as harden their images.

    Gotta commend Menards for fulfilling their commitment with Paul out of the car.

    Why not? They have a side business deal with Penski and they sponsor people in many sports.

    It surprises me how often people aren't aware Menards' motorsports involvement isn't limited to sponsoring Paul.

    For years the only time I saw the name Menard was at boat races.
    They aren't in Canada that I know of.
