Dont know if anyone else saw or heard but earlier in the week AJ Allmindinger on was RaceHub & did an interview with Bob Dillner. AJ said he took an Adderal pill "that he said someone gave to him and told him it was a energy pill".

Allmindinger has to be one of the dumbest SOB's I've ever heard speak. He knew what he was taking and has prolly been taking Adderal for who knows how long. He's done with Nascar for good! There isn't a team, owner or sponsor that would take a chance on him specially when he's a below average driver.

Jr has sucked, big time the past several years but has been Mr Consistency throughout the entire 2012 season. Until his broken transmission last weekend, he was the ONLY driver to complete 100% of all green flag laps.

With the points lead, 9-top 5's, 15-top 10's and an average finish of 9.2 shows that he's here to race and win. Over rated, I donít think so!

I understand there are Jr haters & Jr fans (allot more so) and he did inherit allot/most of his fathers fans which is natural in this sport yet nothing wrong with it either. All Jr needs to do is win a couple more races (preferably in the chase) and could very easily be the 2012 NASCAR Champion!

The latest is it might just be Joey Logano, (IMPO he sucks and always will).

Joey just came into the sport too early. He was really good on they way up to cup but has never really been able to catch on. It seem like that's happened to much lately. When a truly talented and ready driver graduates from Nationwide, there aren't any rides open for him because there all filled with drivers who aren't even ready to be in Cup. IMHO that's why the young talent has been so stagnant lately; drivers aren't chosen on their true talent anymore, just on whether they got in the training programs earlier than everyone else.

That could be ^^^^.On a different note> As far as other manufactors getting in to Nascar, they'd have to come up w/ a push rod v/8. Just saying from earlier comments 'bout new manufactors coming to Nascar.

What did you guys think about Bristol? I thought all the races (Mods, Trucks, Nation, and Cup) where great. I like Tony S. but come on, Matt K. is a clean racer. I don't think that Matt did anything wrong at all, just hard racing. It is called racing for a reason. It is not called let me pass because I am the defending champion. Come on Tony! And then there was Danica , she is the one that should be tossing the helmet. LOL
