What are they?
1. How many championships at lower levels do driver need to be qualified for any of the top three series ; Truck/Busch/Cup.

2. Should drivers HAVE to come into the series unsponsored, because money is evil, and get sponsors based strictly on performance?

3. What level of performance?

4. Any sponsors from earlier career will be forbidden from entry in upper series I assume? (spoon fed)

5. Manufacture sponsorship also would be forbidden I assume? (sponsor pressure/exposure is BAD)

Please discuss.

most of them are not going to qualify themselves, they want to be able to change their story and often. Keep it wishy washy.

Life isn't fair, never has been, never will be. There are no guarantees. People with all the advantages often fail, and people that come from nothing often succeed. In racing, unless you have totally unlimited amounts of money (Paul Menard for example) or you have one hell of a shtick (Michael Waltrip), money and or a name will only get you so far. At the end of the day, 95% of all drivers have to get it done on the track or they don't last, and there is almost nobody that hasn't benefited from a wealthy or well placed benefactor at some point in their climb up the ladder. Richard Petty stepped into a championship caliper team with ZERO racing experience. Dale Earnhardt got some opportunities because of the respect people like Humpy Wheeler had for his dad. Jimmie Johnson had GM Motorsports boss Herb Fishel opening doors for him. Darrell Waltrip may have never made it to Cup without the help of his wealthy and connected father-in-law. Jeff Gordon got his first Busch starts because a wealthy Hugh Connerly decided to back him for a few races. William Byron may have never sat foot in a NASCAR vehicle without Dale Earnhardt Jr. opening the way for him. The exact same things go on in most all of the other sports. The kids from wealthier families get to go to the schools that have better sports programs, their parents can afford to put them on the travel teams, and get them the personalized instruction that often makes a big difference. At some point, having these stupid little arguments gets pointless and tiring. At pretty much every level of the sports, entertainment or business, there are people that have made it to the top despite being less talented than others because of built in personal advantages. I work for a family owned business where people have jobs solely based on being born into the right family. It is what it is, and I knew that going in. You can either piss and moan about it, or concentrate on doing your job and let the chips fall where they may.

Yep, and if you let it consume you, or be your built in excuse for failing, you'll probably never amount to a damn thing. I personally don't like the guy, but Tom Brady has been pissed for over two decades about being drafted in the sixth round of the NFL draft, and he's been sticking it up everybody's tailpipe ever since, and you kind of have to respect that. If you're going to have a chip on your shoulder, channel that energy in a positive way.

Any silver spooned driver wanting the RF respect needs to leave home, and forsake their family when he turns 16 and make it on his on.

It may be impossibile to relocate to Siberia or to Alaska to work his way through the dog sledding and snowmobile ranks. But he can at least move to Montana or the Dakota's into a mountain ravine that's makes it impossibile to get a satellite signal with a terrain that's to harsh to put down cable lines.

He needs the isolation from the pamperd daddy's moneyed up existence and learn to be a man.
In the still of the night he needs to study the moon's orbit to learn symetrics and get his own ephinaniasms about what makes a car fast through the corners.

Then he can build his log cabin shop to build his first racing chassis along with the homemade tungsten all with a pedal powered welder.
Once he learns to win local races on used tires he could then become RF certified to apply for a ride using an alias that doesn't exploit his daddy's name.

That way he won't be some twittered up metrosexual with clean finger nails, that's disgusting enough to know all the gnarly hashtags.
No daddies moneyed charters, or driving coach will need to team him what an apex means, cause he has already became a living talking apex....

There needs to be some other credentials for a RF certification and disqualifications.

It's common knowledge that any Nascar hauler driver could win in a daddies money car, so it should not be to much to ask for a cup driver to have his own CDL and be able to back up a hauler.

Any castrated driver that is discovered to be effeminates enough to use a back up camera or driving a Mazda Miata anytime for any reason needs to be permanently banned.

Crying after winning a race should also get a driver permanently banned.
Trophy queens spiritually kissing each other in victory lane should be the only
excuse for a driver ever being touched enough to cry.
