      The guy is unstoppable. the only way he's going to lose the championship is if nascar decides to go to talladega for all 10 chase races next year.

      If I was a marketing executive at Lowes, I would be really pissed off. Not only did "our" driver win at "our" track, but the press pictures of victory lane show "our" driver WITH A FRIGGIN' JACKET ON!

      Same on Nascar.com (which is somewhat understandable, since Home Depot is the official home improvement store of Nascar.
      But seriously... why wear the suit if you're going to cover it with an unblazoned jacket?

      Is that a "Team Lowe's Racing" patch on the lower right of the pic? I can't really see.

      ^^^ yes, it's Lowe's patched, but far from this:

      which is why companies spend millions of dollars as sponsors.

      favorite paint scheme rite now has to be the jeff gordon/Megatron car... that thing looked menacing. If there is anyone that can take jimmie... it will only be jeff.. but i highly doubt it

      If jimmie takes the championship.. he deserved it..martin deserves it more than anyone imo.. very modest/hardworking/and motivational driver.. Jeff could've taken jimmie a couple of years back but i think having part ownership had alot to do with him not being as aggressive as he could've been... im rooting for Jeff

      fortunes rise and fall so quickly in this sport. Steve addington was just outed as kyle's crew chief. 4 wins in a season, and yet thats not good enough. what a tough sport!
      the 88 team should steal addington from jgr.

      Maybe Steve was sick of Kyle's attitude? Who's the shock engineer on the 18? That's why Kyle was so good last year- the shock package he had was above everyone else. What happened this year? Everyone caught up. Not really Steve's fault.

      I was pretty shocked about the Addington deal, but he didn't do much with JJ Yeley.

      Mr. Monkey Trainer himself, David Rogers, CC of the JGR Nationwide car.
      And yes, over in the #88 camp, it's painfully obvious it's not the CC.

      Hope a "trade" can be arranged for Harvick.

      sucks about Addington. But if you think about it, the 18 is all about ALL or NOTHING. Its either win the race or come in 25th.

      ^ Sure seems that way. Kyle has always performed poorly in the final 10 races though.

      Nope. RCR keeps Harvick in the #29 for 1 more year. Casey's out with Jack leaving. Burton has a new crew chief, moving him to the primary team. For 2011, look for a younger N'wide racer, or someone from the Trucks. RCR will need to be looking for a driver to stay 5-10 years. Johnny Sauter would be nice, but he is missing something when driving a Cup car.
      Jr. will probably stay with Hendrick in 2010, going through 4 or 5 crew chiefs in the process. Which, organizationally, isn't such a bad deal for HMS. If Jr. leaves, that might open the doors for another Roush driver to move to HMS (Matt, your mentor's doing ok there).
      In 2011, look for Stewart, Newman (if a solid 2010), and the new 3rd team- Harvick. Harvick offers a fantastic N'wide/Truck program that Stewart can leverage in bringing up new drivers (<cough>Patrick</cough>) into the Cup series. Harvick and Stewart have worked well together.
      What I find funny is Ganassi. 4 or 5 CART/Champ titles, but over 10 years in NASCAR and he has zip. Joe Gibbs once said that winning a Cup championship is the most difficult championship to win. It only took JGR 9 years to win one.
