Time to make all you diehards think........

15 posts in this topic

Last sunday, as I flipped between football and nascar.....at one point or another they always seem to talk about the one "great" that has played the game (football or any sport for that matter) that defines the sport, but never had the opportunity to win a ring. This got me to thinking as I flipped back to nascar....the announcers were taking a question from a fan.

Well, for someone who doesn't know a whole lot about the sport.....2 questions for you!

1)Give me your thought on the greatest nascar driver (past or present) to never win a championship

and if you thought that might be easy....next question is for extra credit!

2)Give me your thought on who might be the greatest driver to never win a race? This one might be a stretch....but there might be some good ones out there that placed plenty of seconds.

Looking forward to the replys.

I will second eyepatrol. Mark Martin should be #1 on the list.

Next year he will have a legitimate shot. It is crazy when you look at his stats the last two years as a part timer. He consistantly places in the top 10 and has more points part time than a lot of full timers.

Mark Martin is an easy easy pick.

The second question will require some thought over the weekend.

Bobby Hamilton Sr. won 4 Cup races.

Fireball is a pretty decent pick though.

Whoops....my mistake.

Tough question.

Going with Dick Trickle.

Interesting fact about Dick Trickle.

Trickle won the NASCAR "Most Popular Driver" award every year from his first season in 1989, to his last in 1998. (Dale Earnhardt was "above" ever running for such an award, as everyone knew he'd win outright. So Earnhardt removed his name from balloting every year in order to give another driver a chance.)

Martin's a good pick, but I know that Handsome Harry Gant finished 2nd, 3rd, and a couple of fourths in points back in the 80's/early 90's, so he's my choice, just to mix it up a little bit.

Best never to win a race, good question.

I would also add Jeff Burton to the list. It would be great to have him win the Championship before he retires.

I will agree Mark Martin as well, as for #2...not sure

I'm not a big Martin fan, but he'd probably fit for the first question.

Even though Kenny Schrader never has been a dominant driver in NASCAR, he's a sentimental favorite and someone who I'd like to see with the championship trophy. It's too bad it'll never happen because he's the real deal.

I'll say Martin for the first one as well. Don't know for #2.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
