Worst: Martin Truex Jr whining
There was just something about the way that Martin Truex Jr whined to reporters after being outraced by Joey Logano at Martinsville that made him unlikable. Maybe it was just how Martin Truex Jr labeled the move dirty and threatened to get payback on Logano, but it just left a bad taste in a lot of fans mouths. It also made some question what kind of competitor that Truex Jr was, especially after how inspirational he has been to fans at times and it only worsened his image in the process.
In the end, fans shoudl probably forgive Truex Jr’s little meltdown and chalk it up to just being emotional in the moment, but it hard to do that when it came from someone that is usually such a honorable competitor. Think about it! If it was Kyle Busch or any other driver that usually whines about that kind of stuff, it wouldn’t be out of place, but for Truex, it was different. It was a guy not being grateful for a long fought out battle for the win and wanting to cost the man a championship over it.
