Matt Kenseth said it best last week, “This isn’t racing” and guess what? I’ve been screaming this for several years now and the BF goes back on the CEO himself, Brian France.
Weeks before, Joey Logano made a controversial but legal move and I might add for the sport, typical but (barely legal) move that wrecked Matt Kenseth and took him out of the cup chase. They reviewed it and Kenseth remained out as Joey Logano went on. Well, at Martinsville today, Kenseth wrecked Logano and what is Joey’s reply? “Matt Kenseth will have his” and so this goes on and who is really to blame here? Try FATASS Brian France who continues with ludicrous rules and the one-man suppression of a sport to make it worse and worse and worse for racing fans. So let us explore the definition of a Race and Racing, not ethnic race mind you, but rather going fast and first…the sport!
According to the Merriam Webster Dictionary which I consider to be pretty complete, here is what a race is. ‘A Contest of speed’
And what is ‘Racing?’ ‘The sport or profession of racing a vehicle’ and what is the final outcome of racing? Simple, be the first to cross a finish line at the end of the race. And how do you be the first? Be the fastest!
So why is fatso…
Making it so cars are so restricted they can no longer be fast! That is the problem here folks, remove restrictor plate racing, allow below the line cuts, allow slam as well as bump drafting. In other words, let these drivers go ‘Balls-out’ as fast as they can, bring back the wing, and finally, change the points system back to what it was. The current points system is a big pile of oil gump!
