Hello Junior Nation! Just let me say before I say anything else, if your a die hard Dale Earnhardt Jr. fan, STOP here.

There are a lot of articles saying Earnhardt is mediocre, or he's the greatest driver alive but let me stop here. Earnhardt Jr. will never win a championship, he will win one or two races a year if the gas mileage goes his way.

Some blame it on Tony Eury Jr., some used to blame it on DEI owner Teresa Earnhardt, some said Earnhardt Jr. is in his first year with a new team, bla bla bla you Junior Nation keep making excuses for him cut the excuses out.

Plain and simple, Earnhardt Jr. is not his daddy. His daddy was the greatest driver alive and if his name was Fred Richardson no one would give him the credit they do or would make excuses for him each time he screwed up.

Earnhardt Jr. is the popular driver because his dad. If not for his dad he wouldn't be were he is today.

Earnhardt Jr. is not the driver to put your money on, or y'all would be broke.

Earnhardt Jr. has great equipment now and even Mark Martin can win in Hendrick equipment, and hasn't Jimmie Johnson won the last three championships while Earnhardt Jr. did what last year?
