    I am a Ford guy and will never want to see a Toyota win the cup for any reason. I used to like Edwards before he went to Gibbs. Now I can't stand him or Kenseth or any other Gibbs/ Toyota driver.

    Fair enough. I'm not anything close to a JGR fan, especially after they bailed on Chevy in 08, but again, I can't actively root for Jimmie or Joey. Have too many reasons to dislike either one.

    I'd rather see Logono win than one of those 'Yota's though...
    I remember the first year NASCAR let those 'Yota's in, Jack Roush said if NASCAR could do what no other motorsports body has been
    able to do, that is keep Toyota from "buying" their way into the winners circle, then good luck!

    Well, guess what has happened...... :mad: :mad: :mad:

    I remember when he said that, seems like so long ago...So who do you think they picked to win the Cup this year, which driver?

    Honestly(as much as I hate to say it), I think it's time for Six-Time to become #Se7en... Can't stand Toyota's... Or Logano's... So I guess I'm rooting for Jimmie.... 0_0....

    I really don't care who wins it. As long as it isn't a Toyota.
    Since they let those 'Yota's in, I have lost a lot of interest in watching the races.
    And by the looks of the stands at the races, so have the fans!

    I've lost a lot of interest in Cup racing when it got really boring, the best races are the short track and roadies, the roadies are the best racing by far...I tape all the races and watch about 10% of them and most of those I fast forward thru much of

    I haven't watched many Cup races this year, but that's more because of a lack of time(and yeah, Dale Jr not being in the races too). I will always be a NASCAR fan, been one since Feb. 18, 2001. I'm not really a fan of any other type of Motorsports(especially F1... Yuck...), and I'm not a fan of the political nonsense that has been going on recently in the NFL(and now somewhat in the NBA). So good or bad, I'll be paying attention, and I can't wait for 2017, when #BossManDale will be back behind the wheel!! :D :D :D

    After the run he had yesterday, it's a crime he doesn't have a ride set up yet for next year.

    Well, I have not seen many races, because they are so boring they slip my mind, Junebugs out, Penske has 2 idiots, a extreme lack of back markers (At least with S&P Teams they had a chance to survive......) The Dumb Chase system, The Dumb charter system, Shutting down of original tracks, and Excess of 1.5 mile cookie cutters, the WWE state of the series, pretty much P2P, excess of pay drivers(Danica....) All tracks pretty much being owned by 2 people, and of course BRIAN FRANCE :mad:

    If I do watch a race, I usually tune in when there's about 20-40 laps remaining. Depending where they're at.
    That's when the shit will hit the fan! ( IF there's even shit and a fan!!! LOL!)

    As a massive Earnhardt fan, not thrilled with Jimmie reaching 7. But it is what it is.

    Folks won't really see how great this 7 championship run was for a few years, but really look at what they did, 5 in a row, REALLY? The King said that that is what is truly amazing about Jimmie Johnson's deal...and folks are overlooking that...

    There is nothing really flashy about Johnson's style of racing, he and Chad are remarkable in many ways. 80 wins. They will no doubt go beyond 7.

    I'm no Jimmie Johnson fan, I've seen three drivers hit this plateau in my lifetime, in very different eras, you can take a lot away from any of them if that's your thing, but they all had to do it in their era the way the rules said they had to. All Monday morning quarterbacking aside, they are the best for their time.
