RE: The Youngest NASCAR Driver Ever
That is very interesting!

On another side note, I believe that Kyle Busch is the youngest winner in the sprint cup series. I think Joey should be able to break that record easily. Smile I think Kyle was 20 when he won, but I could be wrong.

RE: The Youngest NASCAR Driver Ever
You are correct Sir!
Kyle was in mid 2oth year and yes Joey will crush that.

Is it too early to predict Joey in 2009 Chase? I could see all three JGR cars in again.

I don't think it is too early, I think he has a great shot at making the chase.

PS: Nice new avatar, did you make it yourself? If so great job!

Yeah I made it but it's smaller. CP said it could be 100x100 but I think it squeezed it to 64x64.

We could make a handful of custom JL avatars for folks to choose from. I'm pretty good with Photoshop and would be willing to help in any way Jean.

peace

Go JGR!

I fixed it Smile

The problem was, the maximum size in the post was set to 70x70, and thus it was scaled down for viewing in the forums only. So I changed the view size to a maximum size of 100x100. After I changed it, it made a big difference. I wonder if 100x100 is too big?

Wow, that would be very nice of you Smile

I have thought about adding avatars to the selection list for the forum. Perhaps we can do this at a later point, when the forum gets a little bit more popular. Smile
