Kevin Harvick

13 posts in this topic

I am sure I miss spelled his last name, but he will live.

Kevin has asked to be released from his RCR contract to be allowed to sign a deal with Stewart-Hass Racing.

Childress has responded with a "NO, a deal is a deal, and you signed a deal to run untill the end of 2010."

Wow, trouble in paradise. What has become of RCR?

It is going to be an interesting silly season coming up. Kahne, Harvick, and Kurt Busch are 3 drivers that I believe will be free at the end of next season. I also think there are a couple more good ones. Right now there are not a lot of consistant performing teams out there. I hust wonder if this might put some pressure on the #24 driver to retire?

24 retire? Isn't he in second place?

Gordon is far from done. All of the above drivers are good but not on a Jeff Gordon level.

I agree with you 100%.

Jeff has nothing left to prove. Jeff will make it to the Hall of Fame on day.

But, Jeff is not done yet and I do not see Mr Hendrick getting rid of Jeff for one of the drivers mentioned or for that matter any other driver.

Soon it will be where it is almost at.

All owned by 1 person, no seperate owners, and a big show.

All the single car teams are on their way out, it will be down to Hendricks, Rousch, Gibbs, Stewart-Haas, and Childress, pretty soon 1 by 1 will be gone and presto.

well not if they get strict on the 4 race cars team deal

that would only be 24 cars or so

They are getting around the 4 car limit by using "satelight" teams. ie: Stewart-Haas is basically just another Hendrick operation.

I'm not quite sure that is totally accurate.

Are they part of HMS or do they just purchase cars or motors from them?

Many team do business with other teams as they cannot afford to do the R&D. Some also cannot afford the larger shops with wind tunnels and such.

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.   
    • I put a few miles on this weekend as well. Out on the lake and back a few times. But, I was about a mile out!
