Nascar's Man on a mission. Ernie is a man who I felt for a long time as a guy who really shouldn't be running Winston Cup cars. Now before you jump down my throat, I said felt not feel! I saw a man who was wrecking race cars, finishing in the middle of the pack, and talking things he really shouldn't. I personally blamed Ernie for knocking Davey Allison out at Atlanta in 92, even though in my heart I knew it wasn't done on purpose. I am a BIG supporter of Robert Yates Racing, and was real disappointed when it was announced than Ernie would be the new driver of the #28. I however gained a lot of respect for him, when he dedicated his first win in the 28 car to Davey. I have since found him to be at the very least remarkable. I was very disappointed in the announcement that Ernie would not be back in the 28 car in 1998.
Ernie has made a move to a new home this year. He is driving the MB2 Motorsports M & M's car.
