So far a very disappointing year for the #8 and I wonder how long Waltrip will be staying with D.E.I. Anyway I believe it was a stupid move at the beginning of the season for Dale to switch crew chiefs and pit crews. Now #8 is in a bind no wins and a couple of wrecks have really thrown him off. Hopefully for the #8 has learned a lesson in sticking with what you got if it is working because right it is not working for the #8.
Face it #24(Except singing) and #48 are the better cars this season.
I have to disagree with Jimmie Johnson being one of the best this year. I don't believe the hype, and I don't think he's that good a driver. He's doing well, but I think that may change.
I have unabashed loyalty to Kurt Busch, and I think it's wrong that the Nascar community is bashing him for being a rebel, and not a "picture perfect" champion. He's not perfect, folks; let him be who he is. For all anyone knows, a bit of attitude could be a shot in the arm to the franchise, and one that is definately needed.
ANd as for Dale Jr...I think he's a decent driver, but I wish people wouldn't consider him the second coming of Dale Sr. I mean, the old "like father, like son" statement is a cliche, not a fact of life.

I have no real vested interest in defending the X-Games, per se, seeing as how I'm not, myself, a real big fan of them. But I will defend the viewpoint that the X-Games are no more exploitative than any other sporting endeavor.
