Please feel free to explain your point of view.


A: Waltrip is doing a good job and should continue as an announcer for NASCAR racing.


B: Waltrip has become annoying and should be retired from announcing on TV connected to NASCAR racing.

I wish it was that easy rbohm. I really enjoy CUP racing and have for 30 years or more. but three hours of his remembering "back in the day" kind of ruins a lot of the racing fun. Same stories over and over along with loud giggling.

Anyway we all get to vote. But in the end you will win because he will never leave.

I was probably one of the biggest fans of DW driver. Wore the 88 Gatorade gear, drank Bud, flew the 17 Western Auto flag on race day, even owned some Route 66 gear.

Enjoyed his first couple of years in the booth announcing races. That Boogity, boogity, boogity crap has always been stupid. But I still liked DW.

Then it got REALLY OLD many years ago. Now he is a caricature of himself. Needs to go...

His shtick has gotten old but I think Gordon has helped. DW has been good for the sport overall so I don't like giving him too much guff. When he turns off the 'TV persona' he's better. His brother is the one that needs to go.
