Lagano is the biggest bust as of late that I can think of. Well, except for Earnhardt Jr.

I was waiting on someone to name Jr. I don't know that you could consider Jr a bust. Has he lived up to his fathers name... No, but I don't think I would consider him a bust. He has won a fair amount of races just no championships.

If not having as good of a career as your legendary father makes you a bust than Kyle Petty needs to be labeled a bust before Dale Jr.

When I see Logano struggling I think of Atwood. It's almost the same scenario. A driver with great potential moved up the ranks before he is ready.

He has always had the best equipment. Always. He has won 2 races (one by fuel mileage) since leaving DEI. Take away the superspeedway races (in cars that his dad were instrumental in building) and he has less than a handful of wins. He has been over hyped his whole career. You put alot of the underfunded drivers in the equipment he has had access to and i guarantee you they would have won more than he has. He is a publicity stunt, nothing more.

I think a lot of people try to hold him to his fathers standard and that's something Jr isn't. He isn't his dad. I don't think that makes him a bust. As far as since leaving DEI I think the COT has a lot to do with it. Jr has said several times that he has ever felt right in the COT. I will be interested to see if this new car changes anything.

I doubt anybody would argue one is a bust and the other isn't. Kyle is basically a poor mans Fale Jr.

Jeff Burton is another guy that seems to think he's more important in the garage area than everyone else.

I can see Harvick having that opinion of himself, but not Burton. What gives you reason to think that he thinks that way?

Harvick would have 8-10 Cups by now if they were given away for mouth running.
