I beat your favorite driver.

I am not sure what your point is here....So, anything said is at least partial bull****? Cool, then I will take the JGR price increase as fact, and then you buy into what Barney said as fact. Look, man we all have our biases, and we support the narrative that feeds our favorites. The rest is all biased banter. Harmless. All good. We have pages of bull**** about Furniture Row when the man himself said it's not a story....but "common sense," blah, blah, blah....At the end of the day, I would agree with what I think you are saying.....These are rich dudes playing a game, and we should be thankful for that.....and I am.I'm not sure whether you saw it or not , but my comment contained a specific example of this, but some moderator got their feelings hurt and removed it. It perfectly illustrated the point I was trying to make in a way that MAYBE you would have understood. People in the racing business say things EVERY DAY that are for public consumption, not necessarily the whole truth, and most people are smart enough to understand that. You don't seem to believe ANYTHING Rick Hendrick says, so why should WE be forced to believe EVERYTHING Joe Gibbs, David Wilson or Barney Visser says? My experience in the racing business is that if there is ANY kind of reason not to tell the 100% truth, you are most likely not getting the 100% truth. In a sport where public relations holds more sway than pretty much any other sport, people have $millions$ of reasons to alter the facts or withhold their true feelings and opinions to suit their purpose. Take the statement that Matty D. just put out. I like the guy, but in my opinion that was enough BS to fill a manure spreader.
