CUP DRIVERS IN OTHER SERIES

Post by Kopterdoctor » Sat Aug 12, 2017 7:33 pm

This is just my 2cents worth.

This subject pissies my OFF.

They are the Pro's just like the NFL & MLB (They can't go back to college ball).

The other Series Drives need seat time there learning.

I don't care if the sponcer don't like it.
NASCAR has to put there foot down IF YOUR IN CUP THAT'S IT.

The sponcer just have to understand NO CUP DRIVERS IN OTHER SERIES.

The Young Guns need their time to race each other not have a Damn
BUSHWHACKER racing just for the money.

Nascar has tried for years to build attendance at tracks holding races, other than cup, during important weekends. One way they found was by having "Big Name" drivers in the event. Petty didn't bite, but the Allisons did. As did Waltrip, Earnhardt, Gantt, Martin, Burton...etc. the names go on and on,even to include Kyle Petty among others. Ernie, Dale Jarrett.... Through the years, the names have changed.
I listen to Fast Talk on PRN and NASCAR Today on MRN. When the younger drivers are asked,They like gauging themselves against the best drivers. They also like to see the lines their heroes are using to beat them.
I am in favor of the more experienced drivers teaching the young ones lessons! We, as fans, have seen the progression of such drivers as Kyle Larson, Blaney, Elliott, E. Jones, Suarez, to name a few, racing in this Xfinity series. And they Win! If these younger drivers had not been beaten by the best....How would they know how to beat the best?
of course there are Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Kasey Khane, Karl Edwards, (okay, Inorite?), The Dillon Brats, Denny Hamlin among others....
Now these ten drivers frequently compete in lower series...care to comment?

When these cup drivers win in lower series, it certainly isn't about money, as you imply Nascar, no longer reveals what payouts are to drivers. What these divers want are Trophies...Hardware to remember the race! The jayski site used to be informative about winnings...Now the site sux because it merged with ESPN!!!!

Alenigma

So here’s my rebuttal

Years ago I use to race RC for fun. There were 5 classis.
1. Novice
2. Beginner
3. Intermediate
4. Expert
5. Pro (These were the factory Team drives).

Now as your level of experience went UP so did you.
I became an Expert. I was not a loud to drop a class.
You could move up to the next class if you had the balls to. (Or the Money).

NASCAR has put to many rules in place.
Laser inspection, template inspection before the race.

And after again Why? Cars get damaged. They may not pass after the race.
And I know the Crew chief or Pit Crew may change something

It’s called RACING IF YOU ANT RUBBING YOU ANT RACING AND WINNING

Why, why is a driver dock points for something his Crew Chief did.

90% of the time the driver doesn’t know.
Chief tells the driver I made some changes see if that feels better.

If NASCAR want fans, Damn lower the prices to the race.
Depinning on the race it could be over a $100.00 for just one person.
The average family can’t afford to even go to a race.
Just the price to get in will kill you.
Now you can’t bring nothing in. (Maybe water).
A Soda is $5.00, Hotdog $ 5.00 a Beer $ 8.00.
Could be more depending on the track & the race.
How can an average family afford this ?????.

All Sports are now pricing themselves right out of business.

Damn put the word racing back in racing.
There should be One race no rules it’s RUN WHAT YOU BRONG.
Just like the old days. PUT UP OR SHUOT UP .

Let them race just once no holding back.
Least just see if there’s a Richard Patty or a Bobby Allison Out there.

Jimmy Johnson may win 8 championships.
BUT NO ONE WILL EVER WIN 200 RACES LIKE RICHARD DID.
He raced when racing was racing.

This is just my 3 cents taking.
