I think he knows where the criticism comes from. It doesn't mean it is correct. He never pinned himself with the "real racer" moniker that you seem to be oddly infatuated with. It is absolutely a romantic ideal. One that has been thrust upon him from people who have been yearning for more of what they see weekly at their local tracks. People are in love with nostalgia and for whatever reason seem Larson as a bit of a throwback. I don't get that.I think this shows his lack of maturity. Like he doesn't know where the criticism is coming from....
Give me a list of non-Real Racers.....
It's a romantic ideal.....like the only thing that separates the common dude from a "Real Racer" is talent. The desire is the same. Yeah, okay.
I mean the stands were sold out in Bako when KB, Hemric and Jones came for the Winter Showdown.....people were buying the hell out of the KB meet and greet packs which were grossly overpriced. The stands were sold out when the WOO came into Placerville with Larson and Kahne running and the stands were again sold out in Placerville and in fact, expanded when Bell, Larson and Stenhouse came in with USAC for a Tuesday and Wednesday night race.....there was quite a bit of fanfare for those guys. I think it is safe to assume fans want to see the best in the world at every levelEh....Hard to tell who the fans are let alone what they want to see.
Very true. Very true. This one seems different though. I just have a hard time seeing Toyota let Bell go. Though, it's really his decisionTo me it looks like Bell will have a decision to make when it is contract renewal time. Will it be enough to race only Cup and probably some lower series pavement, or look for a team that has less restraint. Bell is from around my area and has been racing on dirt tracks around here for years before he moved into Nascar. Hard to tell about the "fit" yet IMO. It didn't work for Larson
Another thing about my "fit" comment. This is one of those multi car heavily Toyota factory sponsored midget teams. Bell has left them to drive for Tucker/Boat and here is a direct quote for why he left.Very true. Very true. This one seems different though. I just have a hard time seeing Toyota let Bell go. Though, it's really his decision
