P.S.People are looking for an excuse to tune out NASCAR. What are you... blind?
apparently i am. unless you have poll numbers, quit trying to impose your paranoia and heavy handed opinions on the lot of nascars fans. you won't tune out and nor will anyone else. empty talk. you'll tune in for the controversy itself.
No women drivers, no black drivers, one hispanic driver, and he loses on a humbug!
never been too many of the above and it never drove anyone away. is hockey in trouble too? nope.
Sound marketing would dictate that such a rule would not hinder his going to Victory Lane.
they have a merketing department you know. its a complex web. you like all the rocknroll they play on tv and at the track now? they have montoya front and center now - exactly what is needed to boost certain demographics! stroke of genius... well, uh, they wouldn't do that on purpose, uh forgot what i said.
take a marketing class with your logic class.
Richard Petty won his 200th race with an oversized engine! The victory stayed in place and only a fine was given as punishment!
excellent, now you are relegated to random thoughts.
Don't get holier than thou when it comes to NASCAR being UN-even when it comes to punishment.
The book on NASCAR inconsistancy is thicker than your head!
but not thicker than JPM's!
JPM is an INTERNATIONAL racing superstar. NASCAR was lucky to have him land in their laps and now due to a rule they could easily make non-existant with a one hundred buck piece of electronics, they sacrefice an historical win.
HE HAD LITTLE CHANCE OF WINNING. WATCH THE RACES CLOSER! 48 HAD HIM EASILY COVERED.
This is good business?
Just the fact that people are debating this issue, makes it bad for the sanction.
MAKE IT GOOD
Controversy can be good for any sport, but when NASCAR constantly has to rule on issues that they can easily take care of by implementing INTELLEGENCE, they madden their fanbase.
AND SO THEY TUNE IN FOR MORE TO VALIDATE THEIR LIVES WITH, INCLUDING YOU.
I ask again... This is good business?
ABSOLUTELY WITHOUT A DOUBT
Maybe for you.
NOPE, I AM IN I.T. doesn't matter to me. my company doesn;t sponsor a car. but if i worked for target, i'd be smiling right now! that car will get more air time from the non-win than it would from a win! see who gets more time next week - jpm or jimmie!
I'm tire of this issue because it should have been fixed a long time ago. I think the pit road speeding rule is about as useful as a hemmorroid, and in the case of Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing about as painful.
personal problems it seems
The team with the best car and best driver on that day got gyped because a SAFETY rule that they should not have to worry about, overruled all the hard work put into a dominant racecar.
actually the 48 DID win the race. bets car DID winfor a change. 42 got jipped from a 2nd place finish, i agree - jipped by jpm.
That is not racing.
actually, it is. pit road is a big part of every Cup race
Anybody who thinks it is, needs to work for NASCAR. Make sure to send in your resume' if they
have fun watching MM win Pocono!
You really ned to calm down or you will blow a vein.
