    Next weeks guest on The Dale Jr Download is Rusty Wallace. I got lots of questions about his up and down relationship with dad. How many fbombs does he drop in a day? What else y’all want to know?

    I think as a partial owner he is frustrated that Suarez is driving for the team when he feels there are other more qualified drivers. I remember Tony wasn't exactly thrilled when they brought in Kurt Busch either.

    He definitely likes to hear himself talk, common sense be damned...

    Tony's point has been lost amongst his usual Tony hyperbole, and that is that it's much harder to relate to and appreciate a driver who's been advantaged their entire life and had their career path effectively mapped out and scheduled for them. Joe NASCAR has more in common with the Brad Keselowski or Ryan Preece types in the world. Contrast that to a lot of guys who became heroes in the 80's and 90's and I think you'll see where he's coming from.

    Of course, in a lot of ways pay drivers are actually good, but too heavy of a balance of them and drivers who've always had a plan as described above is not. From Xfinity on down through K&N there are a good number of those types of drivers. And really, it even starts at the home track level now.

    Somebody shows up with a wheelbarrow of Go Daddy money..yeah right dumb decision. This place never disappoints. Like nah take your millions somewhere else, we are looking for somebody broke to drive the car. :p

    Yep. And that Go Daddy money paid for an additional team that did not exist previously... the #10 team. Having Danica Patrick in the 10 did not rob someone else of an opportunity to race. Quite the opposite, as Aric Almirola slotted into that ride and has performed at a high level. It can be said that Aric's ride is the legacy of the Go Daddy sponsorship.

    (That doesn't change the fact that Tony Stewart is prone to hypocrisy at times.)

    It is always good to figure out what Tony isn't saying most of the time. I don't think anybody would say Tony doesn't have a "personality"...like a hand gernade

    Gene has said that with the charter system it makes more sense to stay at four cars rather than to contract, and obviously that #10 car was chartered automatically when the system debuted - so it seems to have paid dividends for SHR for sure.

    Here is a guy that has no business driving a cup car

    Fort Kent native Austin Theriault said Tuesday he is close to finalizing a deal that would enable him to make his debut in a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race this season or next year.

    Theriault has been working closely with Old Orchard Beach native Archie St. Hilaire, owner of the Go FAS Racing Monster Energy Cup No. 32 Ford Mustang, to put together a two- or three-race deal.

    Our current Cup series is now a IROC race every week, why do we need another? :idunno:

    He really should've gotten a full-time Truck ride after winning ARCA. At the very least, this will get him some more recognition.

    Um, what is that in the box? The white and black thing looks like it might be a Speedo the Europeans wear to the beach and I am not even going to comment on what the yellow thing looks like.

    Kirk Shelmerdine was the guest this week on The Dale Jr Download podcast. We talked about his first sportsman race (dad was his spotter). Here’s a picture from the test for that race.

    If they had a race like described, then every driver should have to drive the other guys style series car for the race, that would be interesting.

    Too bad kids are listening to radio scanners at the track :rolleyes:

    The point isn't what kids might hear in heat of competition (assuming the scanners are on the quoted driver at the time and not on MRN), it's why Weaver felt he had to repeat it.

    That's because current reporters don't care about morals, it's more about being first.

    Matt Weaver is a youngster making a living on the twitt and writing for an internet rag. Trying to sell drama. He has a lot to learn.
