Boogity Boogity Boogity!!!!

Well, it is that time of year again. NASCAR racing is back and judging by the Bud Shootout tonight, it is going to be and interesting season. Many people criticized Dale, Jr. for joining Hendrick Motorsports but Jeff Gordon may have made the most prophetic statement in NASCAR history at the end of last season. Paraphrased, he said that " Jr. fans are going to be real surprised next year when Dale Jr. is winning races with the best team on the track". As bad as I hate to admit it, I believe he may be right. Are we going to see Jr. in a championship run for the '08 season? Maybe, maybe not, I'm not going to put my money on it. But, I do believe you will start seeing him win races. Even Tony Stewart said he might even be better at restrictor plate racing that his daddy, the late great Dale Earnhardt, Sr. Phenomenal drivers who know racing and know how to win coupled with incredible pit crews and a team owner who believes in providing the best equipment for his team equals a winning combination no matter how you slice it. So, no matter which driver you hate the most, my prediction is that you will eventually have to hate the whole Hendrick Team. These guys are ready to race and they are out to win. Congratulations to Dale, Jr. and his crew for their first win of 2008 and to Hendrick Motorsports and Rick Hendrick for the uncanny ability to pick the cream of the crop. Good luck to all the drivers this year and have a safe racing season.
