I always liked DW and Michael, but just never could bring myself to root for Jeremy. I'm not sure why. He's seems nice enough, but just warmed up to him. I am a big Evernham fan, though, so to see either the 9 or the 19 succeed would be cool.
As for the other Owensboro boys, I liked David Green but couldn't stand his brother Jeff. For every ounce of class that David had, Jeff lacked it. Forever throwing fits and blaming someone for something.
It's amazing how one little town in northwest Kentucky has had such an impact on NASCAR.
