Biffle, Harvick and now Newman seem to have it in for him.

1. Is it because he fell into his ride without paying his dues?

2. Or because the veterans feel threatened by him?

3. Or because he's been involved in a few wrecks and took out a bunch of other cars? (that can't be it. just look at Ragan or Hornish)

4. Or is it the Toyota thing?

5. Or maybe just because he's a little guy and looks easy to bully?

6. Or all of the above?

What do you think? Any opinions?

IMO it's the rookie vs. the verteran mentality. The rookie wants to prove himself while the vet commands respect because he's been around the longest. Same deal with Edwards/Keselowski. Two dogs pissing on the same hydrant.

#2 and #5. He's certainly paid his dues and earned his ride winning in lesser series multiple times.

I think he had kind of a big head when he came into the Sprint Cup series because he was the "next big thing" Kind of like he expected to get respect and win races just because. He's pissed off even more drivers, you just don't hear about it unless you listen to the race scanners.

he thinks his crap doesnt stink, and he thinks that he shouldnt have to deal with others giving him the chrome horn, even though he does it to them.

Lagano is the best of the young drivers and the vets especailly those he threatens always try to intimdate them.He just does let it get to him;smart.They do it allo teh timje with talented young drivers just as with K. Bush ;Jimmy Johnson.Jeff gordon; but its what you do on teh track that counts not your mouth.
