first Bonehead Award for 2002 Goes to....
Network I feel the TNT network
deserves the BoneHead Award for airing 40 plus commercials during a 70-lap race. I would like to see more racing then commercials.
So here you are TNT you are the proud owners of the BoneHead Award.
Tony gets my Bonehead
Award for the blocking he pulled on Jeremy Mayfield on the last lap of the Twin 125's. I know that blocking the other driver
is all part of racing, and it would be boring if they didn't block. But I feel Tony went beyond blocking, it could have turned
out as a deadly crash, that's why I feel it was a BoneHead move by Tony. I would think that Nascar would agree with me on
Marlin I'm giving two awards
from the 2002 Daytona 500.
Stering gets one for jumping out of his car during a red flag stop and working on his car.
Not a smart move
NBC gets the other one for using the lame ass bubble pointer that shows were a driver is on the track,
and it blocks all the other cars from view. As race fans we don't need the dam bubbles to show us where they are.
I give this award to DW and Larry for their lame assed announcing of the race, Why do we have
to sit here and listen to them two spout off about how much they think they know about racing. DW remarked that the yellow
flag being thrown had "No Affect" on the outcome of the race. Come on Darrell, how could you say such a dumb ass remark like
that? There were 6 laps to go and quite a few cars that could have won. But DW said it didn't matter because Matt was so fast
no one could pass him, and Larry agreed with the whole remark. I think they were watching a different race then what we all
saw, But then again what could we aspect from Fox.
NascarNascar gets my Bonehead Award this week for calling
Jimmy Spencer, chief Doug Randolph and team owner Chip Ganassi to the NASCAR trailer after the race.Why?
They were called to the trailer after the incident on pit row with Bobby Labonte. The way I saw it was Jimmy was just pulling
from his pit spot when Bobby was turning into his and got hit by Jimmy and spun around. So why was Jimmy and the team called
to the trailer. I don't think it was Jimmy's fault, and there should not have been any call made on it. I still haven't heard
what Nascar did or said, but I think it's bullshit. Jimmy was pulling out and Bobby was coming in Shit Happens. So Nascar
gets my award for being unfair again.
No not Jeff and Brooke. This week I give Jeff Gordon and Robby Gordon the BoneHead Award
Jeff gets one for the way he started the Food City 500 at Bristol. Jeff has pulled this slow start before and someday
it will cause a crash were someone will be killed, then maybe Nascar will do something about the way some drivers start or
restart a race. Yes I know what you all will say, the pole sitter can start the race anyway they want to, a fast start or
a slow start. But Jeff seems to do this all the time, and nothing is done about it. Just a few weeks ago we saw what happens
when he pulls that shit, he was bumped by Marlin and it backed-up the whole field. I know Rusty Wallace has complained about
the way he starts before. Nascar needs to make a rule that the driver must start the race without making the rest back off
to avoid hitting the car in front of them. It's a dirty way to start, just get out there and start the races no playing games.
I know that Jeff is not the only one to do this, I've seen others do it, but Jeff doe's it a lot more then most.
Now for Robby Gordon, he gets the BoneHead for being a Bonehead. There is no reason for him to take his car onto
pit row and bump into another car, causing that car to spin out. It's a bullshit and very dangerous act. There are way too
many people on pit row at that time to do something so dumb. Robby got pissed at Dale Earnhardt Jr for the contact they had
during the race, and when they came on pit row after the race ended, Robby rammed into Jr causing he to spin. Lucky no one
was hurt from this BoneHead move.
This has been happening more then Nascar likes and they have done something about it by giving the drivers fines
and probation. I just hope the drivers learn just what this act can do, if they continue. I
know the tempers flare when shit on the track happens, but take 5 and get over it or someone will pay.with their lives.
