What If Jr. Wins...
« on: February 17, 2008, 01:45:58 PM »
What if Jr. wins, and the rest of the HMS teams fail this year?

When the announcement was made that Dale Earnhardt Jr was joining Hendrick Motorsports, the big question on everybody's mind was "How will Jr's fans react?".  Nobody spent more than 30 seconds wondering how the Gordon and Johnson fans would react. We were all pretty sure they would see this as a possible break from all the Gordon hate going around.  So far, Jr fans seem to happy. Johnson fans seem to be happy.  Gordon fans seem to be happy.

But... WHAT IF (that's a BIG "what if") Dale Jr. experiences tremendous success with HMS, and the rest of the HMS teams fail?  I think we all know this simply ain't gonna happen. It's just interesting to think about how Gordon and Johnson fans would react if such a thing were to occur. Talk about a blindside!  This is something that nobody would have seen coming.

Now, I say we know this isn't going to happen... And it isn't... Long term.  But, what if things go this way for the first 5 races?  Stranger things have happened in NASCAR. Bad luck happens.  Jr. is already 2-0 in non-points races.  What if the planets align just right (or wrong) and, after 5 races, Jr. is in the top 3, and Jeff and Jimmy are sitting at #13 and #15 in the points?

How would the Gordon/Johnson fans react?

How would the Jr. fans react?

Who wants to find out?

IF, after 5 races Earnhardt is in the Top 3 and the #24 and #48 are in 13th and 15th, I'd be perfectly fine with that.

If we're talking the first 5 races, no biggie. We have seen JG and JJ come back and kick a$$ and I am sure they would again. Sure, Rick wants Jr. to succeed in a BIG way, but I think if Jeff and Jimmie started falling too far behind they'd be getting a hell of a lot more focus to get them back in the top. Rick's a business man, he's smart, he is going to do whatever it takes to win with all of his teams.

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
