    Marty Gaunt, team manager for Toyota powered Red Bull racing was recently quoted as saying '....the ultimate goal is to win races. If we win races that will sell Red Bull.'

    Has anyone remotely associated with the UPS sponsored, Toyota powered, Dale Jarret driven, #44 car attempted to openly wish, hope, or even desire to think they can win a race this season?

    Probably not.
    Under the guise of "race car driver", DJ's job appears to be one of diplomacy and advertising. He's very photogenic in his flameproof suit emblazoned with the company logo.

    Jimmie Johnson fan here - even prefer Lowe's over Home Depot or Menards. Jarrett should think about his retirement

    Hope you're right . I was afraid DJ changed his number from 88 to 44 because he would be half as good as before.:thumbup1:

    To be honest with you. I thought if I ignored the 'BUD SHOOTOUT' my dissappointment could be delayed by another week.

    Stranger things have happened in the Shootout. Who would have thought Hamlin would win last year!

    Quit it...you're starting to needlessly get my hopes up.

    The title on your post says it all. It will be another disappointing season for Waltrip/Jarret Toyota team. We've been here before many times at the beginning of the season lately and watch our hopes fade.

    Be nice to something to cheer about since Hamllin's doing so well for our competitor.

    Toyota will be strong this year for sure. They've dumped a ton of money into it and it has already shown in testing so far. Bill Davis Racing and Michael Waltrip Racing will be very good this year. Toyota will win a race this year. I think that Bill Davis Racing will probably be the best Toyota team because they've been a team for a long time. Red Bull Racing and Michael Waltrip Racing are new and are bitting off a bit more than they can chew with 2 and 3 cars per team I think. Dale Jarrett will have a better year than last year but he still may not win. He's 50 years old or so and you just don't drive with the same reckless abandonment that you do with you're 30.

    Now my season will be dissapointing. I pull for John Andretti in the Busch series. His team just got merged with Braun Racing and they will probably not run him the full season. Plus they switched to Toyota also and had no cars built for him so what they do put together will probably stink. Oh well.

    I really think that Elliot Sadler should be in the 88 car with UPS as his sponser, since he was already in the commercials last year with Jarrett.
    In training last week for my job and the HR manager ask me what Dale's number is now, and I got it right. The Hr manager looked at the trainer and said promote her to part time sup.
    I was thinking how about just a cover driver and ya got a deal!

    GO Ward!

    If it makes you feel any better Ive been a DJ fan going all the way back to his days with Gibbs. I pull for him every weekend to perform well. I think he will have a great year and would love to see the 11 and 44 battle for the Cup :thumbup1:

    Not really I don't have any intrest watching car's going in a circle for 3-4 hr's. DJ winning does nothing for my paycheck!!! You wanna see real racing watch the NHRA this year and keep your eye on the UPS Top Fuel dragster!!!! Do the math 8000hp vs 450hp????

    I've never been to see the top dragsters, but dying to go. Nascar doesn't do much for me, but looking at the stats on the top fuels... wow. Something I have to experience eventually.
