    I tried Shayne! I LOVE me some Junior, but KK is a cutie pie too. I’m glad MTJ is in round 3. I really like him too.

    Go Clint!!

    Of course if he wins over Mears, and Truex wins over Edwards, it will pit the teammates against each other.

    I agree with Darlene, I can’t believe Tony Loss. I think he’s hot..

    This is not right! I will never ever believe Newman fatty beat Jeff Gordon. NOWAY, then this was tied up and u couldn’t get on. What’s going on? I will not vote any more! None of these should b n this except Kahne

    OK, Sandy……don’t believe that beautiful-bright eyed-wonderful smile-with the best cause in all of NASCAR-Ryan Newman beat out your old timer Jeff Gordon…….but he did!!!! Don’t vote anymore if you don’t want to……we don’t need your vote around here!! If you HONESTLY cannot see Ryan for how perfectly gorgeous he is in looks and heart, than you HONESTLY don’t follow NASCAR at all!! Obviously going on looks alone, Newman could beat old man JG out easily, but throw in there his foundation’s work across our country to make sure people are preserving our natural resources and taking care of our animals……he and Krissie, as well as everyone that works within their foundation are the most attractive people this country could ask for!!! Ask JG himself…..he was featured in Ryan’s PRP book! :)

      come on. old man? Fattie is a couple years younger than Jeff & has NEVER beat him at anything! i repeat there is no way. & believe me you can have him. This whole thing is BULL. THERE WAS ALREADY 5000″VOTES” BEFORE THEY EVEN LET ANYONE ON IT TUESDAY. I dont vote on somee thing that is a farce. C U

    animals r a better cause than a childrens hospital and feeding people? Yeah I c why you want him.

    I see you came back to vote Sandy…….the voting started Monday morning, not Tuesday so that is prob why there were already 5000 votes when YOU got on it on Tuesday. How do you know what the vote count is anyway? There isn’t anywhere on here that shows the vote count! He has beat him at something now though :) hasn’t he?! Haha! In all actuality, this contest is about which driver is the hottest, and JG doesn’t hold a candle to Ryan in that category! I’m sure many poeple are voting based on other criteria as well (as am I), but that is not what the contest is. The truth of the matter is…….there is not a single male NASCAR driver out there that is HOT……attractive ones, yes, but hot, no. Danica is the only driver that could be put into a category of hot. To each there own tho….everyone that comes on here has the right to vote for who they want and if you are unhappy with others votes, then come on more often and try to change the direction of the vote!

      Did not vote Melissa! No way! And for ur info. It wouldn’t let me on Monday & Tuesday it said on here 5000 votes already counted. Danica hot? U r confused. Jeff is always second to Jr in most popular contest & Newman isn’t even n top 10. So someone besides me thinks Jeff is hot. Newman is just— fat.

    Melissa and Sandy need to chill-out.

    I’m proof right here that some people (or should i say most?) find Newman more attractive than Gordon. I have NEVER understood why anyone would find Jeff attractive. Maybe if you’re old enough to have seen him in his heyday and think the whole moustache thing was hot but nowadays…hell no. He doesn’t hold a candle to 90% of the drivers out there imo.

      I’m definitely with you on that one Lindsay!

    Ryan is definitely the HOTTEST & SWEETEST driver on the NASCAR circuit.!!! I have met Ryan several times & he has been nothing but nice & friendly!!! And oh, lets not forget that :D that will make you melt!! lol… Thanks Ryan for being so awesome to your fans!!! :)

    As far as I’m concerned Jeff should have been out in round one right along with Jimmie Johnson…….
