I'm sure there are several other drivers that haven't been on the Darlington track It sure smacks of favortism to me. I think Brian France has big $$ in his eyes for the moment when a hispanic wins a NASCAR car race.

Yeah, sure, which ones haven't raced there, besides rookies? Will you enlighten me, please?
Snow implies he's special. Well, only a special guy could say: "Something that's amazing is how clean they race. It's great. You get a run, they'll give you room. They get a run on you, you've got to give them room and you learn to play that way and it just makes the racing awesome." So, I say, give him some room, if it's not that hard. Can you grasp the word "magnanimity" or what?
Some drivers have been racing Darlington for decades. I fail to see, in my naive approach, what a difference a few laps can make on a rookie. Do you whine like this all the time? My condolences to your roommates... Now it's Brian France's fault that Montoya was 1 mph faster than the leaders for laps and laps at Atlanta on the outer line, inches from the wall. C'mon, envy its a bad adviser, men.
