That was so overhyped on nbcnews.com it wasn't funny.. I think the title of the article was "NASCAR star caught in drug sweep". You'd be pressed to call him a star and it's a reach to consider tobacco a 'drug'.

Considering NASCAR took points away from Jr. that were earned on a race track for something he said, I'd say it all fits in.

So true burdell. In the good ol days, the driver would have told the France family and their crummy points where they could get off, in no uncertain terms. But now we can't have the sponsors offended.

This is true back in the day when the drivers were lucky to be making 50K a year they could say what they wanted.
Do you think Jr would sacrifice some of his in his millions so he could tell off France?
