Jim’s the big Gordon fan in our house. Me, I like Gordon ok, but I’ve always pulled for Jr … but then again, I don’t follow Nascar quite like Jim does. That boy lives and BREATHES Nascar. LOL :)
That said, I must say that I am very disappointed in the display of fans in Talladega. Gordon was greeted with boos before the start of the race. He was booed again when announced as the winner (lap-by-lap results). Poor guy, he received this kind of treatment the last time he won at ‘Dega.

I can understand being upset that your guy didn’t win. I like Jr too, remember? But the throwing trash onto the track!? That shows absolutely no class whatsoever. You lowlives should be ashamed of yourselves, and quite frankly I’m glad that track officials are being more strict about that this year. It was mentioned just now on Fox that people are already being led away in handcuffs. GOOD! :evil:
You are disrespecting Talladega, you are disrespecting (insert your favorite driver’s name), you are disrespecting Nascar in general, and quite frankly you are disrespecting the whole state of Alabama when you pull stunts like that. I for one am sick and tired of stupid drunk rednecks setting the bad example for myself and the rest of the good people who live here!
