....but is Bakersfield really California?
But is California really America?
And how do you know KyBu's image is authentic? The way he has talked about "brands" and "Rowdy Nation" is indicative of his awareness of market manipulation. Plus, plenty of interviews where he is biting his tongue or holding back -- you know "Everything Is Great"...
I'll take Harvick over KyBu all day long...
I didn't say it was...I said it was consistent. For the sake of argument.....How do you know it's not?
I don't care if it's authentic or not.
KyBu is a sports personality looking out for his "brand", which provides for his family, and includes JGR and Sponsors -- he can act out as he likes, and might get punished as he sometimes does. He's got you on the hook for what he's "selling", and that is the point -- he's taking care of business. Whether he's being a renegade, brat, one-man riot, smug sippy-cup interviewee, or holding his tongue from other observations while mouthing off "Everything is Great" -- that's his schtick, real or character or both.
But unlike you, I don't think less of Harvick who has diversified into broadcasting with his radio show and in the booth on FS1 with Adam Alexander. I don't believe it's inauthentic so much as Harvick is doing what the Race Broadcast requires, without dragging all his other Race Baggage into that booth.
They all have a brand. I don't think less of Harvick, honestly. I just think his work in the booth comes off as an eighth grader delivering his first oral report. All I said was that I want my brand to be consistent. I think that Kez as an example is pretty consistent in terms of his brand delivery from the race car to the booth. I like that. I really am not a huge fan of drivers in the booth anyway, but I am way less of a fan when a driver tries to be a Mike Joy or something when he is emphatically not.
I like Harvick in the booth. He really showed he is professional when he was couple with the grandson and did a good job of making the kid sound OK.
Some of the finest country music ever recorded was birthed in Bakersfield California. Merle Haggard and Buck Owens roots can be traced to Bakersfield. There was a lot of talent there in the fifties and sixties.
Who is this boards biggest Kevin Harvick fan. Seriously I would like to know.
I thought there was only one Harvick fan on here...
I was just curious. I really don't know.
I'm a fan of Harvick. but also a fan of SHR..and Penske, and Hendrick on and on.
This board has a lot of undercover fans I think lol.
We have some others like @slash14 but the Harvick contingent here keeps pretty lowkey.
I'm a harvick fan since 2001.
I knew that there were quite a few on here but like @FLRacingFan said, ya'll are kinda low key.
The quiet ones are the ones you gotta worry about
Closet Kyle Busch fans abound
The Nation is loyal, strong and aware
Kevin has the long run speed this week and will get his first win of the season.
Damn straight. If they would just admit their allegiance, then the NASCAR.com Superstore to stock accurately....but nooooooooo. #Backordered
This could very well be the case. We shall see. That track is going to change again, so good today may not mean much tomorrow.
My 200 Win T-shirt is on backorder. I am not joking. Completely pissed.
Some folks got lucky and got theirs, it will take awhile for others Waiting for my 210 shirt
Love Harvick and Rodney's explanation for the problems in Bristol. Kevy talked about how teams get tangled up in correcting issues identified by OSS, and then other things are thrown off. Problem is that his is the only team that failed four times this year. This stuff happens, but it only happened to them. Four fans must get tired of all of that smoke blown up your dark places. Comical.
It was the first time that I know of that any team told the public the decimal amount value of plus/minus tolerances they were over or under on. This four fan thought that was awesome.
...and you trust the guys who ran "the blade?"
I’m one of those rare Kyle Busch/Kevin Harvick hybrid fans
