The Rooks for next year
I sure hope these folks used a different tape measure than the one they used out in Phoenix!
How many analysts, booth gerbils, pit road reporters, Hotel / Pitbox / studio hosts, rules experts, and 'lifestyle' hipsters do the networks need? I like Ricky, but c'mon.
Three in the booth, three or four on pit road; let the rest go.
Why they heck should anybody care? Last time I looked, Fox is paying their salary.
Because I think they don't bring anything to the coverage. Indeed, I think many of them are distractions from the racing coverage. This includes Rutledge, anyone who's hanging out in an infield rig where they aren't facing the track, or back in a studio at the network, telling us about the same graphics for the umpteenth time. They have enough people to cover the race; whatever else they find for these other guys to do is by definition not race coverage and therefore a waste of green flag airtime.
They need quite a few to make a 3 hour show when their agenda is to show minimal racing.
I guess they are trying to make every race a "rain delay" with out driver interviews.
They should try something new like "showing the race with out showing interviewers". I agree, Rutledge is for people who can't focus on racing.
IMO people who like what Rutledge brings to the program need a care taker.
^ But but but... surely there must be some mistake. They're "throwing the book" at owner David Gilliland and driver Ty Gibbs for cheating on the testing ban. What would The Preacher say about this?
Is that a man bun or something in the background?
Joey is not old enough for these kinds of pictures to happen already
Why would he say anything, especially to the public? It's not his team or his kid.
Do you have an idea of who TY Gibbs is?
There's a new Sheriff in town
Yeah, he's Joe's grandkid. I don't see why that would require Joe to make a statement.
I'm pretty sure he had plenty to say IF he is paying for it.
Is he paying for it?
I'm sure he'll have plenty to say regardless of financial involvement, but I don't expect any of it to be said publicly.
There's got to be more to the story. If this is as blatant as it sounds -- then so be it.
But why would they be so brazen about violating the rules and testing in the open?
because they had hid an ARCA motor in a K&N car.
Can they argue it is technically neither a K&N nor an ARCA car? Or is it remain a violation just because they were turning laps, regardless of the kind of car?
you probably need to get back to work Perry. 1500 lawyers out of work sheesh.
I though I saw somewhere last night that they were going to appeal, and I'm guessing that may be their grounds.
I'll have Paul check on it.
Della get me Paul.
Yeah there really is, reading this I think Gilliland has a case.
David Gilliland, Ty Gibbs to appeal heavy penalties for violating testing rules
It isn't any more controversial than what any racing series has now..#because click bait.
Hell yes, bring it on.
Okay, I'm going to claim I pretty much nailed their side of the story.
I think IMSA generally does a good job with BoP, and that is with balancing anything from 2.0L turbo I4s to 6.2L NA V8s and everything in between, with vastly different cars and weights coming off of the assembly line. I don't see any reason why NASCAR couldn't let manufacturers play around with body styles some more (if that is indeed a sticking point for them) and fiddle around with downforce/drag numbers. It shouldn't be nearly as complicated as elsewhere.
Yeah that is what I am kinda thinking, but then looking ahead, wouldn't that be two IMSA's
Glad he is going to do another one
“(I’m) running it because of the throwback campaign they started there,” Earnhardt told NBC Sports of his Darlington Xfinity race plans. “I want to be part of it. I think it’s important.”
Black, with a square white sponsor logo on the hood, white sponsor name on the quarter panels, and red trim.
I'm almost positive it will be the 8. And the 8 car goes way back in the Earnhardt line to Ralph, so it can be about anything as far as the car goes.
Just realized my childhood hero is getting inducted into the hall tonight. Awesome!
