But whose idea was it? It sounds like it may have been Bowmans, because Mark was is racing hero. I know Alex is respected pretty well at HMS and he has already had a couple different things he has put together with his sponsors in the past.That's cool, but would be cooler with Valvoline. And seeing as how Valvoline is a primary sponsor of HMS, I think it would have made more sense to do a JJ throwback on the 48 and save the Martin throwback for Larson's Valvoline car.
that is YOUR idea of proper. Artistic license and the economy of such has been in play for throwbacks since they started. The whine is optional.First of all, Martin ran that scheme '92 thru '95.
Second, don't be silly. All I'm saying is that the best throwbacks either have the proper number or the proper sponsor. This has neither.
I agree. There were a few talking about it last night at my local slot car track. They thought it was pretty cool to see a driver of the their age group doing such a cool thing. It's kind of irrelevant what most of us think about it anyway. What's important is how Mark Martin feels about it...and he loved it so good Job Alex keep up the good work.There are plenty of younger/newer fans who enjoy the throwbacks.
Maybe next year, we should just throwback to the old number placement, and skip the contrived paint scheme BS?
Not really just opinions. I respect the opinions of those who appreciate all of this. I just feel it's a stretch. I mean when a guy throws back to his own micro midget.....or we go all the way back to Clints Poison Ivy car? Really?Some of you boys or girls "I don't know who is which" because this is the internet, and you can be whoever you want to be here, amazes me at some of the parades you try to rain on.
