After Steven Wallace I can not hate any of them anymore, everybody else is wonderful in comparison. Steven Wallace set so many lows, I am not sure that we will ever see another like him.

It has been a long slow recovery after witnessing the Steven Wallace driving. My counselors have started talking about letting me go outside and practicing some simulated conversations with some of the coaches. Maybe the nightmares will all end one day.
He ( Steven Wallace) stole a case of Coors Light from me that I had in a Cooler in the drivers Coach lot at Spencers Bus in Charlotte, after I busted him he said he was sorry and would go get me a case from his dads Hauler, yeah that didnt happen. I saw him again at Gateway a couple years later and got $25 bucks from him.

I think KDB over at RCR will solve the mystery. They were a damn good team when Harvick was driving for them. Since the Dillions showed up not so much. Reddick wins in their cars, How bout Busch? Will that prove that Austin is a seat filler or not?
Uh they honestly rarely been a good team. Earnhardt and Harvick both were really talented drivers who elevated the team. We’ve had this talk before(not saying you and me) and Earnhardt and Harvick have a good % of the teams wins. Take them away, and RCR would’ve never looked like a great team. Great drivers elevate bad teams.

That doesn't make a lot of sense to me and sets up a what came first the chicken or the egg. You have to have both to win as much as those two did IMO.

And I respect your opinion. But let’s look at how much better Harvick got after he left RCR. He clearly was caring that team. It’s either that, or every single other driver to drive for RCR just sucked.

I have to give Rodney Childers for his part in the era of aero wars that they ran in. I count that as both.

You guys act like RCR is equal to Spire or Rick Ware. It’s arguably the 2A/2B Chevy team with Trackhouse. They won 4 races between their two drivers this year.

One of Childer's failings IMO is their use or lack of how they present themselves on social media compared to Trackhouse. Trackhouse comes off as a much busier younger type team and they keep their name out there compared to RCR.

Trackhouse is one of the best things to happen to NASCAR in the last decade. They are ahead of most other teams as far as creating excitement and hype around their team and drivers. Plus they have the Project 91 car that will bring eyeballs from other motorsports fans.

It's so hard to believe there wouldn't be Coors Light in the hauler of the guy who drove the Miller Lite car.

I'm not sure I follow you. He stole my Coors light and said he would replace it. I didnt ask him with what, he left to go get it and didnt return. If you are asking why he didnt get it out of Rustys hauler instead of take mine I guess I should tell you he was with Jimmy Jr and they were at Jimmys Sr's bus and he put it on the golf cart and they took off with it.

Fair enough. I still don’t see it as a top team myself.

I never said it was bottom tier, I said mid. Yeah it’s probably like the second or third best Chevy team. But counting Chevy, Ford, and Toyota, it’s probably like 7th? Maybe 6th. But I probably lean more towards 7th.

On July 31, 2011, Menard won his first and only Sprint Cup race in his 167th start, in the Brickyard 400 at the prestigious Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Racing reference only compares drivers in races they were both in

Chase Elliott. A dozen + years ago at Loudon during a autograph session, he was arrogant, condescending, and a general entitled brat towards a number of people. Didn't set well, and I have never forgotten that .

I have a short list of those I don't root for, but I really don't dislike any driver. They suit up on the weekends and drive fast cars for my entertainment, so I respect them for that.
Not sure I even have a short list although that did change as, like fine wine, I aged. 😁
I could list drivers from the past that were less than a favorite and most, if not all, are not in the sport as drivers any longer.
Like TRL, if they have the gonads to put the suit on and drive 200 mph and take road course turns sliding on two wheels, they have my respect.
In the same vein, no matter how great the rewards, doing that NASCAR thing, sponsor appearances, testing, and everything associated with the sport is extremely demanding and time consuming and doing it year after year is hard on a marriage and family.

Ty Gibbs. I hope the CUP drivers will give him a hard reality check next year.

I don't have a lot of respect with the way Reddick switched teams and ol Hamlin either who couldn't wait to spill the beans. It worked out though for Childress after the smoke cleared. Not a fan of Kyle, but I think he has a burr under his saddle about the way he was treated by the preacher and you don't want a motivated pissed off Kyle when he sees a JGR yota on the track. I think it is going to be a fun watch..maybe he will shoot the bird when he wins at the yota pits when he wins lol.
So funny. Not a fan, but kind of a fan. Pick a lane. Childress could have locked Tyler up....but ya know....resources.....poverty.....couldn't afford it against big bad 23XI. Keep dreaming on the KB bird....When will you remind us of how little he has won over the last four years....oh yeah, we don't talk about that anymore since he left the Evil Empire. Gotcha. I am enjoying you dancing around KB. So fun. THANK YOU!

My daughter never was. My Grandkids never were.The neighbors kids aren't. I know dozens of teens who are polite. grateful, and unentitled. So your "they all are " comment falls flat.

Yet you judge someone you met once vs people you see all the time. That is not a representative sample to judge someone on let alone a child. They all can be moody, rude, or any other variety of things, no matter if they show it in front of you or not.

Ty Gibbs hasn't even made Cup full time and he is already making the list lol. IF he does run full season, I'm sure he will build on his jackassery. Of course some will act like they love him because he wins because they don't have a choice. I never have been able to excuse widespread jackassery from a driver because they win races. With his dad passing away and all, he has been given a pass for the most part by Nascar nation but it's a short leash if he continues on the way he was going.

There are a few that I don't care for, but any hatred I had for a driver subsided considerably after Stewart retired

It left a sour impression on me and that's irreversible now. Let it be...

Drivers often do dumb things that make me mad at the time, but I forget things easily, so I don't really think I have a driver that I dislike or consider my least favorite.
