Matt Carey · Wednesday October 27, 2010
They’re back! Matt Carey and Jay Coffey from the Carey and Coffey show join us once again, contributing a weekly audio blog to the Frontstretch for 2010. This time, Matt Carey takes a look at the surprise leaders at Martinsville – including NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver. Is this race just the beginning of a much-needed turnaround for Dale Earnhardt, Jr. or simply a flash in the pan?
Did you think Matt was right on target this week with his opinion? Be sure to let us know in the comments section below, and if you’re lucky, you’ll be mentioned LIVE on the air this Sunday! And speaking of LIVE, you can catch the Carey and Coffey show as it happens over on careyandcoffey.com each and every Sunday morning!

Unfortunately, if the Dale Jr 2010 race season goes as it has so far, Jr will qualify decently, drop back a little bit, come in for that first pit stop and either, Lance will make one of his infamous “McGrew Pit Stops From Hell” and Jr drops like a rock, or the pit crew will have the first of many 17 second stops and Jr will drop like a rock. Then Jr will lose it and scream at Lance and Lance will scream and Jr will drop further back and never recover.
But, coming up is Hallodaga and it is Halloween and strange things happen. Maybe this will be payback weekend for a lot of offended drivers, Lance will make stellar calls, the crew will pull out more of those sub-12 minute stops and Jr will run up front and WIN a race. Stranger things have happened.
Well lets look at the teams at Hendrick motor sport. It seams to me that only one team finishes in the top ten each and every week, yup ole J.J. The other teams at best jump around from 10th to 35th. In other words its my belief that they don’t all get the same good cars that J.J. gets. Well I said it but that’s just my thinking.
I am far from being a Dale Jr. fan and I didn’t root for his father either, though I do miss him. I have to admit it was good to see Jr. having a good day. With so many things that NASCAR has screwed up, the CHASE, the wave around, the green -white-checker, the historic tracks they longer want on their schedule. Then, the fans need something to cheer about. And I would rather see Jr. leading a race than JJ any day.
