It's time to wake up this Topic again:
Soooo, do you still have the same favorite driver? Has your top 10 list changed? Who of the New Comers do you like, hate, or simply LOVE to Hate?

Well, Jr of course is still my favorite driver. I just hate the bubble he's had to live in because of who his Daddy was.
my #2 is the #2, I've enjoyed watching him grow, and look, he won 2012 Championship.
Now it's time for my #1 to win that championship.

I still Love to hate Kyle Busch. But, he moved up a few spots, cause Manica took the most hated position on my list.

and has Joey taken the "I'm an ass" Title from Ky?

So, there you have it. It's your turn.

Kyle Busch is my favorite while Travis Kvapil, The Biff and Cousin Carl are a distant second.  As for my most hated this is easy, Jimmy Johnson and Jeff Gordon.

Yep, I'm going back in time to see how you all feel now that everything is and has changed.
My first thought, with the talk of Carl going to M&M's car.....Signholder, you still rooting for M&M's?

I still have the same #1 Favorite. But, the numbers on my other dislikes and favorites change periodically.

One I loved to hate, back when Jimmy Spencer knocked sense into him, Kurt Busch. He still has his moments. They all do. But, I learned a lot from him a few years ago when My Husband and I got a chance to meet him. He really wasn't that bad of guy.


How about you

My fave was Jeff Burton and my second was Carl Edwards. When Jeff retired, Carl became my number one driver.

Others I like.
JR
Trevor Bayne
Matt Kenseth
The Biff
Stenhouse Jr.

On my sh!t list.

Jimmy Johnson...Need I say more ?
Montoya (Not full time) but I still can't stand him.
Clint Boyer...Was supposed to be Jeff's teammate at RCR.. Not a very good one at that.
Denny Hamlin.... Just on general principles
Kasey Kahne... No good reason... Just don't like him
Marcos Ambrose....Don't let that smile fool ya...
Michael Waltrip..... Lisping loser

Yes Cab................. I am brand loyal, not driver loyal.
M&M's forever  :-*
With that being said, "What The Hell Are They Thinking"?  >:(

I'm sure this is more about Ky. Busch's already established relationship with Monster than M&M's wanting Edwards.
My guess is:
JGR, not wanting to lose M&M/Mars sponsorship, looked at the sponsorship $$$$$ and got the best driver they could afford.  :o
I think they should have dug a little deeper.............IMO.  ;)
Heeeer's yur sign!!!

I don't really have one at the moment. I rooted for Ward Burton when he was still racing and wish he were still out there. At least his son is in NASCAR now, though.

Careful, now. Cobwebs mean the place has likely been abandoned for quite some time.  :P

Of course it's Kyle Busch  ;D
And like Robby it's Mark Martin always.

I find the hate is a word i don't care for to use for another person, unless they do something really bad to me or my family & friends then its on.  ;)

I will say that most Jr nation fans i can not stand. I'm not talking about any Jr fan on this forum. The fact is i read too many post by Nascar or Nascar on Fox on FB and most Jr nation fans are crazy. lol
The Seattle Seahawks are SuperBowl Champions!!!!!

Hopefully Ryan Blaney can make it to Cup in a couple of years so I can have a favorite driver again. I tried rooting for Denny Hamlin, Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski all at seperate times after Ward Burton "retired", and I just lost my enthusiasm for them when they eventually just seemed to blend in with every other driver in the garage when it comes to personality.

Yep finding a driver that I like is pretty tough for me. I'm pretty sentimental on how I choose a driver I like. I'm not into the flashy types. I want a driver who does his talking with his car and not his mouth. I also want a driver who owns up to a mistake and will make his pay backs look classy when he has to do so. Basically I want a driver who can wheel a car and be mature even if he is a younger driver.

Whew, I'm so glad I'm on her "can't stand" list. LOL
But I do love the Comradery we have all formed here. No matter who our favorite is, or isn't.

I've been a Kasey Kahne fan since I started watching Nascar, and he's still my favorite.  He hasn't fulfilled all the hype he had in his earlier days, but he's still had a pretty good career so far.  I'm hopeful he'll figure things out and contend for a title at some point.

I also cheer for Jr.  I'm not a huge fan, but I know the sport has so much more buzz around it when he's contending.  I've always been a Martin Truex Jr. fan as well, and I usually cheer for Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards too.

I'm still a Carl Edwards fan........ But now that he's running for Gibbs in a Toyota, I need to find me a Ford driver. Hmmmmmmm I gotta think of one I like....
