Top Ten Reasons the FANS Think Dale Jr. Is Running So Well This Year

Frontstretch Top Ten · Jeff Meyer · Wednesday April 20, 2011


For this week’s Top Ten, I did a little something different. I posted the topic on Facebook (on my page and the Frontstretch Writers page) and let the fans come up with the list! That’s not saying I didn’t fine tune a few submissions, but for the most part, if you don’t like the list, be mad at your peers, not me!!

Could Kasey Kahne possibly be intimidating Dale Jr. or is there something else behind his improved performance this season?

10. DW can’t have a man crush on a married man, so Junior’s back in favor over Kyle.

9. Doesn’t want his nephew, Jeffrey to catch him in the racing stats.

8. Suddenly realized that all the 14-year-old girls who rooted for him in 2000 are old ladies in their twenties now and he wants a new crop of irrational defenders.

7. Sponsor National Guard threatened to deploy him to Libya if he didn’t improve.

6. Now that they are in the same shop, Chad Knaus is crew chiefing both the 48 and 88.

5. He’s only falling to 10th place at the end of the race instead of 20th.

4. Intimidated by Kasey Kahne.

3. It’s a sign that the end of the world is near.

2. Doesn’t want to compete for Tommy Baldwin Racing.

1. He’s not doing better; Kyle Busch is doing worse.

It’s funny Jeff, I don’t care who you are.

Jeff, Jr. does a lot more creditable job at his job, than you do at yours.

Jr. Nation HAS TO think poor Dale Jr. is running better, because darn it, it gets harder race after race every year to make Excuses for a driver who’s only win in the last five (5) years came with a Na$crap assist (the only driver Na$crap allows to pass the pace car or go below the yellow line). A hard fact that the Hypoctites of Jr. nation just can’t accept. Dale Jr. will shameleessly use the Pity Pass to get into the Sprint All-Star race. Because driving in the best equipment in Na$crap,and using his God given average at best talent, Na$crap’s Most Popular Loser will not win or transfer from the Sprint Open race, a race for Losers. This is the No-Excuse race Jr. Nation fears, because it will again expose their driver for what he is. Over-hyped, Over-ra88ted.
