Same situation with Jamie Mac. Should have been gone years ago. I like Kasey and all but he hasn’t looked competitive in years.
This just proves that these guys can no longer relate to the struggles of the average fan.Wants to spend more time with Tanner? The "grueling" schedule? Come on Kasey, most people work 5 days a week 52 weeks a year. Some get vacation, maybe 2 - 4 weeks. You race 36 races a year in Cup with a few extra weekends. How many days/weeks do you have off?
...but, it is great he will be at the dirt track more.
Seems like he hasnt had fun since Evernham disbanded and then the team went through its troubles. I really really thought he would have come close to winning a cup with Hendrick. I liked watching Kasey watch, ill be excited to see him race on Dirt.Sorry to see him go, but honestly, it doesn't seem like he has been having fun for quite some time, beyond even the on-track struggles. When you have a certain level of financial independence, it's hard to put in the amount of effort required to run Cup schedule if you're not REALLY into it . I imagine the reality of having to work even harder to achieve a lower level of success than what he was accustomed to and getting paid FAR less to do it probably played a big part in the decision too.
No, it doesn't.This just proves that these guys can no longer relate to the struggles of the average fan.
He will get in sooner or later. They are gonna run out of Cup Champions and people who have won 30-90 cup races before long and someone will have to go in.Decent career but not even close to HOF caliber. 18 wins is OK but not when you spent the bulk of your career in top equipment like HMS.
Hopefully they will reduce the number of entrants, I can see having a large number now because so many drivers are older, but it will get really watered down after awhile.He will get in sooner or later. They are gonna run out of Cup Champions and people who have won 30-90 cup races before long and someone will have to go in.
