Yep, me too. Love it when he is the underdog! He might even have some talent for this type of motor racing.

I saw TP in Daytona on the HD seeing how fast that new camera went, 110 mph??

TP has all kindsa shit going on right now. Seems like he is really bouncing around. Rally cars didn't go so well. Hopefully this will go better...

Um, he is a 4 or 5 time US National champ.
He hasn't had the best first season in Global Rallycross, but injury had a lot to do with it.

Let me know when they bring Jocko Flocko back to NASCAR.

Then, I'll be ready to watch.

I'm a big TP fan but don't see success for him in stock cars. Starting too late. How about sprint cars? Outlaws? Yea baby!......I loved it when he did a flip at Daytona....He rocks........Danica will NEVER cry. She's tougher than nails with bigger balls than most boys.

Where's all the clowns crying that Travis doesn't deserve this ride? I guess the fact that he's male makes it alright.

No it's not that. It is simply that he has run at the front this early season. Hard to talk him down so far. NASCAR fans don't really know TP. SX fans do, and it was not so good. But MX fans and rally fans know...

No comment on the Extreme gig, but we all know it takes a lot more than Jimmy Johnson has to offer when it comes to flipping motorcycles...

She cried when she won in Japan.

And driving a Sprint Car isn't any easier than driving a stock car as far as I'm concerned. You don't just jump in one and start running at the front, most of the shoes start in quarter midgets when they are 4 or 5 years old.

He still got the ride on name recognition not his previous accomplishments in stock car racing, just like Danica.

Isn't he part owner of the team along with Waltrip?


EDIT:

Waltrip's wiki page doesn't say anything about co-ownership, but I would surmise he brings plenty of sponsorship $$$

Not really. He's an accomplished athlete.
125 cc outdoor moto-x champion, US Rally champ, XGames gold medals.
He seems pretty much able to accomplish whatever he sets out to do, and his track record shows it.

As for name recognitition, he's not known by many regular NASCAR fans, but ALL of their kids know him.
