It's time buddy, it's time.

Haters....please, not here....we don't care what you think about NASCAR.

The landing of Dow chemicals as a sponsor is huge for the sport.

It's not like when they brought back the 28 after Davey Allison's death. If there was a reason to run the 28, someone would.

The publicity machine will be running all out. Hope Dillon can handle the spotlight.

Just can't stand him.

"Papa" and that fucking hat. The machine is running overtime to rebuff the hate.

In five years 3/4 of the field will be second generation or somebodies kin. Not good.

#3 yes.

#88....not so much.

It always was Richard's.   Hell, it was Richard's first.


Anyone remember a Bud Moore Ford?

Pegging in at -2 on my giveashit meter.

It's just a number, Richard had it first....don't care.

and somewhere in the lower ranks of racing there is someone that we have never heard of with much more talent that wont get a chance....something you wont see happen in other athletic endeavors such as football....baseball hockey etc.....but comparing Nascar to those sports isn't fair......like has been said before the number belongs to RCR and he can do with it as he pleases.....just because he can doesn't make it a good idea...sounds more like a publicity stunt but we shall see......the kid will get a shot to prove his worth and if he doesn't get it done then well that's another story....in my opinion Childress shouldn't put that kind of pressure on his Grandson but that's me.....

No complaints about the 3 returning here.  I do feel bad for RCR, though.  Menard, Newman, and A. Dillon.  Not foreseeing many victories in 2014.

Both Dillons strike me as entitled little assholes. Of course, RC is an asshole too, but in the old school, earned it kind of way.
These kids seem to think that they deserve respect just because daddy didn't pull out quick enough.

I don't think that's fair to Newman.


Newman can drive/win. RCR has to provide the cars capable of winning. That's the real tricky part these days.

Childers owned the number first.

I'm not a fan of Dillon but the car looks good.

I certainly don't want to discredit his abilities as a driver. I'm familiar with his past success with Penske.  Lately he strikes me as rather reserved. If he has good equipment he's a terror.
Perhaps he'll have a stellar year like Kenseth had with his switch to JGR.  But I don't think RCR is ahead of Stewart-Haas so I fear it may end up showing more of the same.

With my comment about not seeing many victories, I fully expect what victories they do claim to be from Newman.    Menard had some good races this year but he's not there. Dillon is going to have a transitional period to work through.

I wished they would retire that number.

The number 3 returning is fine.  The problem is that Austin Dillon is a whiny, no driving, cunt faced, twat waffle.

This was in the hanger today....






No idea why.
