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

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

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'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.

    • Wetting a line for the 1st time today. Gonna hit it hard this weekend.
    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
