    Jeff Gordon & Danica Patrick

    I am( and will always be) a huge 24 fan. But, as I read the other day where Jeff said that his career was winding down I realized I really didn't have enough of a like or love of another driver like Jeff when he does leave racing. Until... I watched the #7 car of Danica in the Arca race at Daytona. Yes.. I know this isn't the big leagues but that girl has natural talent.Not only did she make a veteran save but, she also drove back up from the back during the last part of the race to finish sixth. I think not only will she succeed, she will excel. It's gonna be an exciting year for Nationwide and the Sprint Cup! Here's to Five for 24!!

    • When has he ever ran a cup car well?? LOL he must take after his mother cause he sure aint much of a driver. But he son is who I was talking about, I think he ran one race in Nationwide last year, Atlanta maybe, cant remeber. I do remember alot of hype of how much he reminded everyone of Dale Sr., the way he drives, looks, talks, everything. I cant think of his first name, as you said its getting late

    • Memory gone too. LOL.

      In December 2007, he announced, in a year-end letter to his fans on his website kerryearnhardtonline.com, that he had retired as a competitive driver. He is still an active test driver for Dale Earnhardt Incorporated (DEI), and on occasion drives in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (NNS).
      His last appearance in a national touring series was the NNS Subway Jalapeño 250 on July 3, 2009 at Daytona International Speedway driving the #31 car for Stanton Barrett Motorsports. His 2002 run for FitzBradshaw Racing in the Busch Series was his only full season in any of NASCAR's Big 3 series (Cup, Busch/Nationwide, and Truck), and he finished 22nd in the points. He scored 3 top 5s and 6 top 10s in the Busch Series. In the 2003 Winston Cup season, Kerry Earnhardt drove the #83 Hot Tamales race car.
      In 2005 he raced in seven NEXTEL Cup races, six for Richard Childress Racing in the #33. His highest finish was a 17th place run at Talladega.

    • Pens, I'll have to do some research on him, what ever happened to Kerry Earnhardts son, is he going to be in the Nationwide series this year? I remember last year he was all the talk to be a great driver, but I never actually seen him race

    • I'll give him that but till he has some teammates to teach him something other then how to be a D!ck, I fear he'll just be another one to stay away from. Now the 16 year old Pens he races in the toyota all star race, That kid is going to go places. Rookie of the year 2012 watch.

    • Gordon will indeed be missed, I dont know if he will ever get another championship, personally I'd rather see Mark Martin get one. I've never been much of a Gordon fan, always thought he was a little soft, maybe a bit sweet. But I share your pain in finding a new driver, I'm a Dale fan and have been since I was a kid, but I have to say that the way things have been for ol' June Bug have me almost ready to jump ship. I told myself last year that if he didnt have a good season I would become a Lagono fan, but here I am this year more hopefull than ever for that #88 car. But I have the same little bug in my ear telling me that its all in or fold with him this year and I mean it this time if he flops out on me again this year, I will be finding a new driver. That kid in the #20 car is going to be a great force in the near future of Nascar and I just may get on board before it becomes a band wagon.

    • That's quite a stretcchhhhh...............! But, ya got my vote. 24 all the way. We'll see about later.

    • whooo!
