  1. He's a journeyman. He's always been a great spokesman for his sponsors, and his teams. It's always heartfelt when he talks about getting money to run, barely getting to the track sometimes, then showing up and putting on a hell of a show. He's a class act. Old School.

    I have always enjoyed watching him race when he's got a good piece under him. Anytime he gets a chance to run up front, it always seems like he makes everyone work a little harder, giving us a better race to watch.

    Congrats to you Mike.

    Whatever happened to Chrissy? Does anyone know if she's racing anything right now?
