Hendrick Motorsports continues to Struggle!
The past two years have been dominated by the Hendrick Motorsports team with everyone’s goal to knock them off their high horse. Well so far this year it’s quite obvious this is the year of the fall of Hendrick Motorsports. Already with five races complete, Hendrick Motorsports has failed to win a race. If you were to ask me for a dream team of racers to have racing for me, I would definitely pick Hendrick Motorsport’s team, especially after last year’s wins.
As you all know… I tend to root for the underdogs and like to see battles instead of easy wins. I really don’t care to see the Hendrick team out there dominating NASCAR. I wouldn’t mind seeing Dale Earnhardt Jr get his first win but for the rest of them I could care less. Jeff Gordon has always been a threat, Jimmie Johnson of course is trying to get his three peat and make the record books. The way these guys are racing it seems to me they may just be “ordinary.”
The last time I hung out with Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon I would have to admit they were just ordinary when it came to slamming some beer. Everyone seems to think super stars can drink, but I’ll tell you what… I must be the king super star if that’s the case. If I remember correctly, I think Jeff Gordon asked for a glass of wine. Now if you were to ask me who I would pick for a “Dream Team” of drinking buddies, I’d definitely have to pick the Gibbs Team. My boy Tony Stewart and Kyle Busch aren’t scared. But that’s another subject.
Speaking about Kyle Busch…. He’s the one that got away! I can guarantee that Rick Hendrick is having seller’s remorse. Kyle Busch who used to be on the Hendrick Motorsports team last year is leading the points this year and is the guy to beat. I don’t think I’d feel too good knowing I just sold the guy who could have potentially kept my team on top. But I guess it’s too early to make that executive decision. Who knows… I could be eating my words half way through the season. But for now it seems to be the truth.
Who’s your favorite team this year?
