Considering the announced that DE Jr will runa limited WC schedule net year
and likely a FUll one in 2000, I think your right.

So if DE JR start winning all the time, no one will Boo? Dream on!
Someone will, probably Gordon fans. No one cares about families
either. Just look at John Andretti. BTW, that wouldn't be UNLIKE
Jeff Gordon. Gordon was well supported his first two if not three
years in WC. It is only rescently, the DE/RW fans have begun
vocalizing their fears their hero's will never again see a

Well, at least since RW and DE Sr. But you're forgetting one thing,
Steve Park! Everyone seems to have forgotten that Park drove that
#3 of DE's in bush last year very impressively also and Park has
a 2 to 3 year head start on DE Sr. in WC. A three way with Park,
De Jr. and Gordon, although I'm forgetting Jeff Burton and jeremy
Mayfield seem to have come on rescently too, would be much better
