So I'm watching the Truck Series race from Daytona and during the warmup laps the TV crew talked to Mikey in his truck. He proceeded to say "between me and DW, we accounted for 88 Sprint Cup wins and 3 championships."

Are you kidding me? DW accounted for 84 of the wins and all 3 championships. Captain Douchebag just took credit for all his brother's work.

I'm sure it was said in Jest

Has anyone's rep taken a bigger hit in the past few seasons then Waltrip's?

Ever since he went to Toyota, nobody likes the guy.

I don't dislike the guy because of his make selection, I dislike him because he's a self-aggrandizing huckster. Furthermore, the only person he has to blame for his rep taking a hit is Michael Waltrip. Between his Daytona cheating attempt, leaving the scene of an accident (because it was rumored that he was plastered), hitting a motorcyclist while driving a little tipsy, and his incessant "I'll do anything to get my mug on TV" attitude, it's no surprise he's a lightning-rod for criticism.

Doesn't matter what anyone thonks it was a amazing race and he won which is more than any of us can say. Kyle Bush ;I agree is a amazing racer after watching that race and he had the class to say Bush showed him how.Someone is always going to whine;I guess.Now if the 500 is as exciting.

Gee, little brother joking about his big brother, the nerve. Guess you don't know humor when you hear it.
I watched an interview with MW when he was discussing what came to be his last full season. During the interview he stated he knew he was not that good of a driver.

I know humor. Michael Waltrip is about as funny as a Napa pick axe to the groin. I hear he's funnier when he's trashed.

MW should maybe stick to driving trucks. He's not doing so well in a cup car. Nice pile up Mike...

It only took him looping the car in front of him 3 different times during Speedweeks before he caused the pileup.

MW causes the "Big One" at the 500 today. He is good dont get me wrong, but sometimes I wonder if he wants to be a racer or owner.
