    And Jimmie wins again......... NASCAR fans hate that a SoCal boy keeps winning "their" sport. :laugh:

    The crowd of reporters around the fargin 8th place finisher, however, kind of proves Jack's point on Patrick... <spit>

    Why's that ???

    If you aren't born in a Redneck neighbourhood, you supposedly can't be a Hoon and do donuts ???? :D

    Can't say her teammates did her any favors in the race though. She might not be a winner yet, but top 10 is still a respectable finish out of a field of 43.

    Little do they know, that the Cajon Speedway where he got his start, is as close to redneck as San Diego gets. ;)

    Has been my point all along Dave ......

    I'm still yet to figure out why she gets all the attention she does ........ Even moreso after watching that last lap I might add.

    Seems to me it's all about "perception" rather than actually winning anything.

    I'm all for her getting her just rewards in what is obviously a male-dominated Sport........... But for Christ sake, earn it just like anybody has too is all Im asking.

    But isn't it about having the "fastest car" or have I got this totally wrong ???

    Still don't understand why she didn't at least take a chance on that final half lap and head for the inside like Earnhardt did, she may not have won, but could have at least got a placing finish.

    I only heard a little of the after-race interview and it sounded like she said she was worried about getting "slammed" if she'd gone inside !!!

    Well dohhhhhh, isn't winning a Daytona 500 worth that risk for all the Glory it would bring ???

    All I watched was the last few laps of the Daytona 500 - then after a few minutes switched back NCIS reruns - that's how interested I am in listening to the Mediots I guess.

    Have already posted my "cluster" for the first pick - time to start thinking about what happens in the 2nd round of the 2013 NFL Draft - still want another O-line fatboy there too. Damn glad this draft is so deep in our primary area of need - kinda like the one that brought us Kindle Reyes. :cool:

    Give me a fat guy who can bend, with good balance and great feet, not to mention pancake the opposition - I'll be tickled! :tup:

    I'd let her share my popcorn during a football game if she would promise to keep quiet until appropriate times to cheer MY team on - otherwise...... :cautious: (My stinkeye can hurt ya).

    She IS a hell of a good driver, as evidenced by being in the top 10 finishers at this Daytona - and I'm not jealous of either her $ - but like you get damn tired of all the mediot attention. It isn't gonna go away - but while I have the power within me to change the fargin channel I don't have to watch that part of the show. :cool:

    My daughter went to middle-school with him. Several years back they ran into each other and he still remembered her. ;)

    Those were a lot of fun....... sadly, the Cajon Speedway is no more. Where will the Jimmie Johnsons of tomorrow come from? ;)

    Chiefs trade for Alex Smith....... so the rumor goes. I wonder what they had to give up to swing that deal.

    I agree with Blue! Top ten is good! I have only watched the start and the finish so far!


    Note to Jackie: looking at the stats I don't think the fastest car was even in the top ten! Winning takes a lot more the Just a good driver.

    From what I see around El Cajon, Lakeside and Santee these days - I think they broke the mold. <sigh>

    If it does turn out to be the Chiefs, I'd be willing to bet their #1 pick wasn't part of the deal - JMHO.

    I'd think it would be no higher than a 3rd round pick....... especially when it's the top of the round.

    Since that is probably way to early to become fully vested, I assume we are talking picking back up on a 401K? (Don't answer Bro, not really any of my "bid-niz". ;) )..
