Truex had more Grand National-style car experience by this point in his career than DJ did, though...

I've been reading this thread for a while now, and in my honest opinion, coming to a track like Dover, as a rookie, in a car you don't personally own, the #1 goal for the race has to be to finish the race with the car in one piece. DJ did that, and finishing in the top 25, that is a great finish, and congratulations to him.

Its far better to be known for bringing the car home in one piece and top 25 than bringing the car home in pieces and ticking off half the field. He's going about things the right way from a drivers point of view.

I have to agree with you. It could very well be that one of the big teams could be looking for a driver down the road, and the name D. J. Kennington will stand out and he'll get a break! Heck maybe Shrub will walk away from his car again and DJ might happen to be there this time. You never know???

My point was that some on this thread feel that DJ should not be racing to just get seat time.  And I proved my point by saying that each of those drivers openly on camera said at new tracks when they were racing them just wanted to finish the event and complete as many laps as possible.  Thus I made nothing up in regards to the comments made by the drivers, if you want I'll do some more research to provide you better examples since you didn't like my first 3.  But that will have to wait till I'm back from Pocono this weekend.LOL

  Second Carl Edwards started out racing for Danny Bost and Mike Mittler which sure weren't first class rides and were not near as well funded as what DJ has now . Martin Truex Jr ran his first two years in stuff that would be comparable to DJ (used equipment) with backing from his father (like DJ) with the exception of of a one off ride in a James Finch car and it wasn't until his third year while still running with his own stuff that he got a shot in Dale Jr's Chance 2 operation that then lead to his DEI deal .



 

   

you  got another fact very mixed up MR Pinecrest D.J.'s Bush ride is not funded by his dad but by  Dwight Kennedy of Northern Provincail Pipelines. Once again prof why none on this thread should belive  aword you say .

 Easy there needforspeed just because I had to correct you on the engine rpm , gear rule and Ganassi cars there is no reason to get bent out of shape . But if you don't think the Kennington family is partially funding DJs Busch effort I have a bridge I will sell you . My comparison to Truex is valid as Martin had other major sponsors as well .

 I realize you would like to jump on any mistake I may make in posting but your going to have to choose your spots a little better.

Pinecrest the smartest move you could ever make is making sure no body finds out your true identity, also quote First there has only been one poster on this thread who has been critical of DJs driving ability and that was JoeyW who I would very much like to distance myself from . don't be such a pussy, we both know Joey W is right ,
