I know it's just the 2nd race of the season but It's time to be a professional and stop being a fan boy for Hendrick.

I don't remember Steve Letarte being such a fan boy as Gordon is. All we hear from him is Hendrick this, Hendrick that, blah, blah, blah.

Even DW stopped being a fan and is just a commentator.

Rating so far IMO D

I agree he's been harping on Hendrick too much, but I can understand it considering he left them at the top of his game. As you said it's only the second race of the season. Although I think Letarte has been a pretty big Jr fan boy as well (plus I don't think he's a good commentator anyway).

Maybe once he gets settled in he will cut back on the Hendrick love fest. You figure that is all he has known for so long it is the only information he can recite in his sleep.

It has got to be hard after being in the thick of things to just watch the race and have to come up with things to talk about for such a long and boring race......................it was only yesterday all his concentration was spent on trying to keep the car in the race.

Big Gordon fan here but have to admit his voice is not would I say announcer quality, he has always sounded like a young kid. Just my opinion

i think given time, gordon will loosen up and become a much better announcer. but like DW it will take time, perhaps a season or two. we shall see what he is like in august.

Yeah it's only race 2 and he's finding his voice. Once he's out of the loop of Hendrick for a while I'm sure it'll change some. I think he's doing fine. He has not once said 'hisself' so that's a plus. lol

Give the guy a break, geeze! He just got out of the car, this is his first gig other than as a driver so cut him a bit of slack to get into the groove of being an announcer not to mention he DOES owe Hendrick a whole lot don't you think?

If, by the end of the season he's not changed or settled in then there's room for complaining.

Why not he is the only owner ever banned by NASCAR for less than honorable business practices.

Your kind of guy I guess.

And NASCAR was invented and grown to what it is today filled with nothing but upstanding,ethical, non-cheating priest like people right? If I hated every person associated with NASCAR who'd done some thing not quite kosher then I'd have nobody to root for.

You couldn't toss a racing tire in the pits in any direction today or at any time in the past without hitting someone who's done something crooked at some point in their career.

For a rookie, he tries real hard to keep Darrell in check. He's pretty good at it too.
