Where Have You Been You Ask?
I've been really uninterested at many a time, to tell the truth
But, Mark Weber Will be a loss to F1 but a thrill for Porsche sports car racing. I look forward to his new adventure and have complete faith in that he and Porsche to do well.
Of course Pirelli tires were once again a total failure and most likely determined the outcome at Silverstone. But Nico did a fine whipping of Mark Webber at the end to take the win and showing well better than his teammate Hamilton.
It seems the series has become a "catching" ground for those that can't cut it in the Cup series and for top driver's (Last year's Champion) to regularly drop down and play with the young men that are trying to make a name for themselves - and both KyB and 'Bad' Brad seem to be regular's looking to 'spoil' the races for the 'up-and-comers'.
For me personally, I'm sick of the Cup drivers in Nationwide. Attack me as you wish, but this is not where they belong. I want to see the young, upcoming drivers duke it out among themselves. Prove between each other and each team who's best. This garbage with Cup drivers has gone on too long. OH I know you're going to say it let's them test themselves with the Cup drivers. That is BS and everyone knows it. Your test of skill is when you step up to the next notch.
And please, don't come on with the ignorant concept that the Cup drivers, "draw the fans" garbage - that doesn't work anymore. When properly promoted by NASCAR the Nationwide series can stand on its on quite well. The Nationwide series is, as you know, is the major "young" driver feed to NASCAR. You can see it everywhere in the entries. If there is any failure of 'attendance' to the Nationwide races that responsibility is with NASCAR and the tracks they run on.
CUP Race At Kentucky
Once again Mr. Kenseth showed why Joe Gibbs hired him: He wanted a winner in the Cup Series. Matt has out-raced his two whining little-boy teammates from the git-go. They finally discovered they need a man, a real racer like they had with Bobby Labonte back in the day.
'Dinger' did OK in the #47, out-ran that Patrick hype-person. There were strong teams that had problems but came back to show their strength. Was a good race.
Go DaddyI now get it. With Danica is has nothing to do with performance, just like in IndyCar, it's only about media exposure, nothing more. Because there is nothing more.
