Age Old Question VS Money

It is 2012 two days away from the presidential election and the Almighty Buck always prevails.

There is nothing you can do about it. I know this will probably fall on deaf ears as always. I do want to know what you the race fan thinks about this and would like to read your opinion.

Saturday night with the NNS run in with Denny Hamlin and Austin Dillon brings the point up again. A Cup and NNS driver in a NNS race at Texas.

Why?

I have always and will always be against Cup drivers coming down in the lower levels of racing. First of all there is a reason the divisions are the way they are.The Camping World Truck and Nationwide leagues were intended for young drivers learning the sport and a chance to race in the Sprint Cup series.

MLB has AAA AA and A leagues. What are these for is the development of future Big League ball players. The only way you see a major leaguer go down to the minors is for a rehab stint or they aren’t ready for the big leagues. The NFL doesn’t really have a minor league but they do have Arena Ball. the NHL NBA and others all have minor leagues for this reason.

There for my thoughts go as follows; One let the younger guys race for their championship which will keep the Cup drivers out of it. Secondly if the Cup boys want to be part of Camping World or Nationwide then let them do it as car owners. Thirdly let it be the way it was intended let them work to get to the Cup level.

Now with that being said I also believe that Nationwide drivers should stay where they are and stay out of the Cup until you earn your way in. Make sure they have a full time ride before they make the jump. Now if a Cup driver is cut loose or can’t find a Cup ride then they can go back down and work their way back up. Pretty simple don’t you think?

There is only one thing that puts a wrinkle in this theory. MONEY. What? Yes we all know the reason they allow Cup drivers to go down to lower levels is so they can sell tickets.That is the bottom line after all.

Sorry still don’t buy it. It seems to me that if you let drivers battle it out on the track for the championship you will would sell more tickets.Think about it for a minute. If you awarded the points to the Nationwide or Camping World drivers the points the Cup drivers that race you would see more competitive racing. You may even have more than two or three racers closer in points. Just my opinion.

Let me know what you think?

I’m outta here!

Come On Hamlin Get real

Cliff Tanner

If you have read my blogs in the past you know how I feel about whining in racing. Saturday night’s Nationwide race is a perfect example. Yes you will even read about my feelings on Cup drivers going down to the lower level to race. The Twitter Nation lit up like a Christmas tree on Hamlin’s comments.

With just a few handful or laps left Austin Dillon, who is racing for a Championship and Denny Hamlin, who was just there to play had a run in.

The saddest part of this whole situation caused the King ESPN to really screw up. REALLY. You had a young gun who had his best career finish ever. Ryan Blaney drove like crazy and finished second to Kevin Harvick. Now because the Gods of ESPN had to hear Denny’s rant they forgot about Ryan and didn’t even interview him. Are you freakin kidding me? Sad day in broadcasting if you ask me.

Yes I know I am a little off track but it needed to be said.

Racing went four wide and Denny got pushed down on the apron with Dillon next to him. Denny backed off to stop the four wide racing. Well needless to say this didn’t make King Denny happy. So we had some post race heat.

As they were going on to pit road Hamlin smacked Dillon in the wall. Well I don’t know about you but whoever you are if you did that to me I would be ready to kick some ass. Be a man and talk to me about it don’t wreck my car. Hell in reality it was just racing!

Well, let me say this and I will talk about the comments Denny made in a few minutes, but Austin did nothing wrong here. He was trying to gain points to win the coveted NNS Cup. We all know you would be racing hard to win too. It’s the competitive nature in us all.

Now let’s explore Denny’s comments. Now this is not word for word but you will get the jest of it. He complained that Dillon was racing him hard and because he drives the #3 he is entitled to do what he wants. If it wasn’t for his grandfather Richard Childress he wouldn’t even be here. He said if he wants to race hard he is going to let him know about it. In his rage he basically called the young driver out.and called him a wussy.

Now let us kind of break this down. Now I somewhat agree with some of the comments. Now Hamlin says that if it wasn’t for who it was he wouldn’t be here. There may be some truth there but look at the history of NASCAR.

First if it wasn’t for Lee Petty there wouldn’t have been The King himself Richard Petty. If it wasn’t for Ralph Earnhardt there wouldn’t have been a Dale Earnhardt Sr. Amazing both currently are tied with the most Cups- 7. On the other side where has Dale Earnhardt Jr. been. If we took that logic we have nowhere to go or back up that statement.

 

Now you can say what you want about Ty and Austin Dillon but them boys can drive. Yes they have the advantage of a Richard Childress but they have talent. Now I have to say that I believe Ty has more talent but I’m just saying. Look at the other teams out there. There is Rousch, Gibbs, Hendricks and yes even Waltrip racing teams. They have the advantage.

Put to rest the forever argument that only one or two guys on the team get the best equipment. Believe me car owners want all of their cars to win races and championships. Get off it Hamlin.

Now we see that Hamlin thinks that Dillon is a Prima Donna. I don’t know how you feel but I believe that Denny has always believed he was God’s gift to NASCAR. Case and point look at his current ad on The Chase. “When I was ten I promised Joe Gibbs I would win him the Cup if he gave me the chance. Where is Hamlin now? How many Championships has he won? 0 Oh that’s right!

It was said in last week’s truck race someone came up to talk to him about running through him to win. Now keep in mind this has not been verified but after last night you can’t help to believe it. It was Tweeted and re-tweeted several times. Supposedly Hamlin asked the young driver if he knew who the f&&k he was. Now again it is not verified but can’t help but wonder.

Bottom line in my opinion is this’ Hamlin until you stop being who you are then lay off others. If you can’t handle the heat get off the track. Grow up and become a man. Win a championship then you can become a Prima Donna. Until then quit crying.

Now I know I said you would hear my feeling on the big boys coming down to lower levels to race but i will just write another blog. I don’t want to take away from this event.

Oh yeah, by the way Elliot Sadler and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. are now tied for the lead with two races to go. Stenhouse actually owns the tie breaker with a race win.

I’m outta here!
