Talladega Knights

Well we knew coming into Talladega this weekend that one of the major stories would be the 2006 fall Talladega race where Brian won but Dale Jr. and Jimmie Johnson ended up spinning through the grass on the last lap. As you will recall, there was a lot said in the media about Brian and NASCAR fans were divided on their opinions of the incident - whether it was a racing deal or whether Brian was at fault - and even Junior and Jimmie had different thoughts on the matter. We figured since everyone would already be talking, why not have a little fun with it? As you can see from our weekly cartoon, one of our resident cartoon artists Buck Jones put his creative spin on the Talladega Nights movie poster. Let us know what you think!

If the 83 team can make it in this weekend I think they will be a threat to win! Even in the Twin 125s at Daytona they were a threat to win before they had a tire go down

Just because Jr.'s dawg is named killer does not make his fans hillbilly's.

Take that back talking badly about my boy right before my birthday.

You are a disgrace to the NASCAR community.

Obviously there are no true NASCAR fans on this site. Or you would know the truth behind Ralph Earnhardt and Ralph Earnhardt Jr.

Why would Jr's dawg (by the way it “dog”) cause me to think you are a hillbilly? It is this kind of thinking that cause me to call you a hillbilly and no the only people that are a disgrace to the NASCAR community are people like Jr. fans who think it is ok to threw full beer cans at cars on their victory lap and boo a guy for trying to give tribute to a fallen driver. I personally think Dale Jr. is pretty cool but all of his fans make me dislike him because of how they act.

Also why do people who do not like the Red Bull team or driver come to this blog? Are you that insecure that you have to cause trouble everywhere you go? Go to your favorite drivers' blog and talk about stuff there instead of ruining a blog for Red Bull fans.

Love the drawing, and I'm excited for the race this weekend. I was initally supposed to be going to the race, but there were no rooms left in Dega of course, so I'll enjoy it from my living room.

Anyways, good luck to Brian and AJ and I hope that both of them make the race, because if they do I'm sure they will give us a lot to cheer for.

And I agree, if you don't like Red Bull drivers or the team, don't post here, you're wasting your time and ours.
