Don't get me wrong, I love Nascar, it's the greatest sport there is today. I just feel that some of the things the so-called management of Nascar pulls at almost every race is bullshit, and I want to bitch and complain about it. Just look how many times they change rules and don't enforce them when the Golden Boys break them. Nascar thinks they can control the world if they could only change the rules to show in their favor. I'm here to point out what I think is wrong in Nascar from the management to the drivers. And don't forget about Fox, What a joke!

Hey Dogg :)

I want to say that I am sick and tired of NASCAR changin the rules mid-stroke. If one driver does something (a'la Tony Stewart spinning JG in the pits) it should be treated the same the next time a driver does the same thing(Robby Gordon). Were those 2 penalties anything alike? NO! Too big of a difference. Slap on the wrist for Robby, but Tony gets a little more probation. Kurt ADMITTED causing a caution, potentially injuring not just one, but many drivers, and he gets a paltry fine? What a joke! I wish for equality and no more fine lines. "Actions Detrimental to the Sport" is the most bogus rule in the "imaginary" rule book to date.

Just my 2 cents!



This isn't a bitch or praise, he was just wondering.


Stuff I Wonder About...

by Matt McLaughlin, SCC Staff

How come when a driver says" My hats off to the guys back in the shop" he's usually wearing a hat at the time?

How come people in the grandstands hold up signs that read Crank it Up! They're there at the track not watching on TV so what possible difference does it make to them?

Speaking of Cranking it Up, how is turning up the volume and forgetting to mention three changes for the lead while showing a stationary camera angle improve racing coverage?

If the announcer says prior to the Invocation and the National Anthem, Ladies and Gentleman will you please rise and remove your hats. How come the drivers are usually seated in their cars wearing their crash helmets? Aren't they ladies or gentlemen?

Are we going to need a constitutional amendment to forbid selling sponsorship of the National Anthem? (I swear they said the Star Spangled Banner was presented by XM Radio prior to the Busch race at Richmond.)

How come they call it the Rockingham Spring race when it takes place during the Winter?

Why is it Mr. France and Mr. Helton but Tony Stewart and Jeff Gordon?

When George W. Bush threatens to sick the ultimate weapon on Iraq, does that mean he's thinking about sending Robby Gordon to Iraq with a cabbys license?

I saw ESPN's pit reporter kiss the winner of the Craftsman Truck race and say she loved him. Can you imagine the uproar if Dick Berggren did that to the next Cup winner?

If the Richmond race was suspended Saturday night, does that mean it faces a fine for conduct detrimental to the sport?

If NASCAR has a new one engine rule, how do the other 42 cars move and how do they decide who gets the engine?

How come the website for the Speed Channel loads so slowly?

If team owners and managers are going to call media members name's for reporting stuff that's about to happen while they deny it over and over, how come they never admit they're lying sacks of stuff when that's exactly what happens?

If Larry McReynolds brings all those pages of notes to each race how come he still hasn't found out that Mike McLaughlins last name is pronounced Mick-Glock-lin not Mick-Gloff-lin? 

Does the fact no toothpaste or toilet paper companies sponsor race cars, but three beer companies do reflect Madison Avenues view of race fans?

Isn't it somewhat ironic the diecast of Dale Earnhardt's first racecar costs his fans more than Dale actually paid to buy the real car?


 Enough of all this 'young gun' talk

Is it just me, or is the term "young guns" being shoved down your throat a lot lately?

For the past few weeks I've been sitting back and observing various forms of the media tout the "young guns" of Winston Cup like Colonel Parker used to promote an Elvis concert. Frankly, I think it's time to drop the term and quit ignoring the more experienced racers and their efforts on the track.

Now, before you get all revved up at me and send off the hate emails, let's delve into this a little further.

The history of NASCAR is what made this sport what it is today and --- being the traditionalist, I am at 37 years young --- I love to read and hear about those early days. Tales of Curtis Turner, Fireball Roberts, Cotton Owens, Smokey Yunick's tricks and the struggles and sacrifices each made to win is noteworthy.

They took equipment that was by far less technical than today's rides and drove on fueled by pure passion. The rewards were checkered flags on dirt and asphalt tracks of the East and Southeast.

I have nothing against guys like Kurt Busch, Jimmie Johnson and Ryan Newman being referred to as the next generation of NASCAR. And, I'm not saying they don't have the passion for the sport. They obviously do or they wouldn't be where they are today.

But, the constant barrage of information comparing them to Rusty Wallace, Bill Elliott and Terry Labonte --- to name a few --- during a race is getting kind of old, I think.

Knock Knock. Hello! Did anyone notice that currently nine of the top 20 drivers are in their 40s, seven in their 30s and only four in their 20s. So, four young guns are mowing down nine veterans, huh? I don't think so.

What really matters is where you finish at the end of the race; not how young vs. veteran is doing on lap 200 of a 400-lap race. Championships are won and lost where you finish, not how you were doing at the halfway point.

But, this is just my opinion. By the way, we are only 11 events into a 36-race schedule. Much too early to hand out trophies, wouldn't you say?

So, I thought I would ask a few guys who are actually of the veteran experience and see what their thoughts are on this recent "young guns" hype factor.

"Evolution, man, part of evolution," said Bill Elliott, who entered his first Winston Cup race in 1976, which was two years before Bush was born. "The key to this business is whoever gets their stuff dialed in is going to win the races.

"They don't necessarily have to be the quickest car. If a guy calls the right shot and does the right thing he can find himself in front. Last year, a lot of different people won and you kind of see the same trend this year."

In 1983, Elliott won his first of 41 races and his only championship five years later. He does remember, for the most part, his early days.

"When I came into this sport a number of years ago, I was one of the younger guys and now I'm one of the older ones. I don't remember that far back about how I was treated back then --- I've hit too many walls.

"The hype doesn't really bother me, as long as they spell my name right is what matters to me."

Fair enough, Bill E-l-l-i-o-t-t.

Our current point leader Sterling Marlin has competed in 550 Winston Cup races with 10 victories since his first start in 1976. Four of those wins have come in the last two seasons, just so you know.

He also doesn't seem bothered by the whole "young guns" hype.

"The young guys are really coming on good," Marlin said. "Ryan Newman, I knew he was going to be good last year. Jimmie Johnson and Kurt Busch and them guys are really going good, too.

"Us old guys are going to have to step it up a little bit, but we'll try to hold our own with them. I'm 44, so I still feel young.

"I'll take 'em on in football anytime."

Marlin was the team captain, quarterback and linebacker for his high school football team. He was also named the Professional Athlete of the Year for 1995 and 1996 in his native Tennessee.

Earlier this week, Ricky Rudd said he has had thoughts of retiring because he doesn't like the direction the sport is going. He commented that NASCAR racing has become more of a show and hopes that drivers won't have to wear bathing suits and flex their muscles like wrestlers.

His car owner, Robert Yates, has had some talented drivers working for him in years past. Names like Davey Allison, Ernie Irvan and Kenny Irwin drove for him during their youthful days.

Both his current drivers, Dale Jarrett and Rudd, are in their 40s. Yates said he's seen the trend from both sides.

"Everyone loves to speculate and it has a lot of interest," Yates said. "I've seen it from both ends - the young side and the older side. Our driver's abilities are certainly at a peak; they're not over the hill. So, I don't have a problem with the whole thing.

"Heck, I heard what Ricky said the other day and I went and got my hair dyed because I figured I had to "young up" here (laughing).

"A lot of this success for these younger guys has to do with equipment. Johnson and all them are great guys and drivers, too. But, they're also bringing good equipment to the race track."

Again, I am not trying to take anything away from the young crop of drivers that have been doing so well this year. I personally enjoy working and talking with each of them and was happy for Johnson's and Bush's first-time wins this year.

I just hate to see the guys who have thrilled us for so many years and drew us to NASCAR races --- and are still doing so --- get overlooked for their on-track endeavors. Have we become so complacent about Bobby Labonte, Jarrett and Wallace winning a race that it's just not impressive anymore?

Man, I hope not. That's one gun I don't want to see silenced.
I agree 100% withTim on this one, I'm sick of hearing all the "Young Gun" bullshit...Maddogg

I must say that I am very proud of the fans, drivers and team members of Tony Stewart's crew. Their support of him during this recent investigation of him shoving a fan is very admirable and goes to show how much the drivers' respect him. It upsets me that someone would make a report over a trivial incident. Someone out to make a quick buck. How very shallow. I am thinking that NASCAR needs to make a buffer zone where fans and media are not given access to protect the drivers and crews from such intrusions. It can't possibly be safe for a fan to be that close to equipment that is used to race the cars with anyways. Look for new rules and regulation in the near future. Thanks to a few rotten apples, they are ruining the barrel for all the other well intentioned fans and supporters.


Good luck Tony in proving your innocence and showing this one fan you won't be bullied into a quick settlement! From Jo.
