There is a huge difference between the NFL and NASCAR. NASCAR teams are dependent on sponsors. One guy can destroy sponsorship money with his attitude and actions. (as noted by Busch being kicked off 2 teams already) One idiot in the locker room isn't going to affect sponsorship in the least, unless it's a case like Vick. (crime involved)

You can be the biggest talent and dick in the NFL and still keep you job. In NASCAR, you'll lose your sponsorship(and fans) in no time flat.

Also, Gibbs hasn't done much to subdue Busch's actions and attitude since he's came aboard the team so so much for that "Gibb can keep em in check" theory.

Re: Ricky Bobby rides again!

Sponsors care more about winning and personalities than whether guys are nice.

And I mean Hamlin is seemingly nice to the general public, but to his crew he's a total ass. Whereas many believe Tony Stewart comes across as a bit of an ass to the general public but he's super nice to his crew

Also, in reality JD Gibbs is much more the everyday guy than Joe is.

Yeah,I have not heard a bad word uttered about Hamlin,you just never know.Stewart has more of a bad reputation than Hamlin,I would think to the general public most people would think Hamlin was the nicer guy than Stewart.
Do you have any dealings with Jr? How is he regarded?
I was into Nascar when I was young and lost touch with it,didnt watch a full race till the Daytona Dale Sr died,so since then ive had a soft spot for Jr,plus hes a skin fan.
Besides Jr I pull for anybody on the Gibbs team,but I like Mark Martin,Tony Stewart and Waltrip

Re: Ricky Bobby rides again!

You know I never really dealt much with Junior or Jeff Gordon. Nothing more than just seeing them hanging around

And maybe Hamlin's changed but the thing with (at least 3 years ago) him is that everyone in racing recognizes how unbelievably hard the crews work and how important they are to the team, no one acknowledges that more than Tony Stewart, but not Hamlin.

He was a total ass to his crew. Never took responsibility for his own mistakes or gave them credit for their stellar work. It was unfortunate to witness.

Re: Ricky Bobby rides again!

Didnt Gibbs at one point hire "personal security" for Tony Stewart in the pits because Tony was getting into so much with other drivers ie Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson? This was like 7-8 years ago I want to say.

Re: Ricky Bobby rides again!

I've always liked Stewart...first when he drove for Gibbs and even now I know some don't like him but I haven't seen anything that would make me not like him. He is competitive on the track and unapologetic about it but in terms of dealing with people he seems like a pretty solid guy.

Whether he gets along with other drivers I could care less about.

I have heard Jr. is a pretty good guy too. I think he is pretty laid back. Been a fan of his too especially since he and his siblings got pushed out of DEI after Sr. passed. I hated Sr. but for no good reason other than I did. I think a lot of people hated Sr. just because. I think I'd like him nowadays.

Re: Ricky Bobby rides again!

I cannot believe they still let this asshole drive in NASCAR. Seriously, just boot this clown out right now. He doesn't need to be behind a wheel of a car driving at high speeds. Probably lucky I wasn't that reporter...lol

Re: Ricky Bobby rides again!

Lil surprised it was only 1 race. He is a flat out embarrassment to the sport.

I tell you what, you think his sissy shit woulda flown 20-30 years ago in Nascar? He woulda gotten his ass kicked on a weekly basis.
