and yet in the 80's when the sport was really gaining momentum 600 HP was the goal postAny driver that speaks out against the 550 package
Unfortunately JJ just showed up at the track to drive and he was given the best with one of the best cheating CC's. I think DE did more with less.Jimmie Johnson. I wasn't a fan of his, but you have to respect his accomplishments. He got it done at the peak of NASCAR popularity too. He set the bar of excellence.
Just had mine, you guys and girls get yours too!There are many drivers I respect, admire, and give thanks for, but today I am thinking of just one... John Andretti. One of my most favorite NASCAR drivers from the 1990's and I always felt he was the classy one of the next generation of Andretti's after Mario. A very good journeyman driver and always a classy and gracious individual. I well remember his signature win, Martinsville 1999. And his Memorial Day double, the first driver to accomplish that feat of endurance.
John's #CheckIt4Andretti charitable foundation carries on, and according to experts who should know, has moved the needle regarding public awareness of the life-saving benefits of colonoscopes after age 45.
If you are 45 or older, consult your doctor about getting screened for colon cancer. It never can be too early but it can be too late.www.checkit4andretti.org
