Question of the Day ! ! !

Recommended Posts

Let's open this one up for debate....In the wake of the "cheating" and suspension scandals of Speedweeks. Let me throw this out to you.....DO YOU BELIEVE THAT A DRIVER IS AWARE HIS TEAM IS "CHEATING" OR DO YOU BELIEVE THEY ARE KEPT IN THE DARK??? confused.gif

I'll start by saying I think Mikey knew what his team was up to. I am not so sure about Kenseth, Kahne, Riggs, and Sadler, but believe they had some type of idea. I am sure Gordon did not know as it appears that was an installation mistake.

I simply find it odd, that in today's NASCAR where every bolt, nut, and wire is checked, they had no clue that someone had bolted on a shock wrong???? I know people are human and make mistakes, but.....


Which position are you taking here?

I think it depends on the team if the driver is hands on in the attempt to gain a racing advantage. wink.gif

I think it all depends if the driver is hands on or if they're a hired gun who just drives the car.

Maybe it's just the hype this year, but there seems to be more cheating this year. I think Nascar is slowly moving towards spec cars(car of tomorrow), crate engines, basically an IROC type of series.

Somebody said it. In Nascar there is only cheaters and losers. I think the drivers know, but they don't want to know. With today's racing engineering (except for Ryan Newman and some others), I think the advancement in the places where rules are bent (aka cheating). are beyond the scope of many driver's comprehension. Kind of like, I ain’t saying, I'm just saying.

Pier,

I'm taking the position that while I find it very odd that a shock was mounted wrong on Gordon's car, I will give them the benefit of the doubt that they were not blatantly cheating. And, I am saying I do not think Gordon knew about it either way. Obviously he didn't if it was an installation error. Does that answer your question? I am trying to stay on the fence on this one... grin.gif

I don't think the drivers always know what's up. They don't have the time to sit there and watch a car get built from scratch....to watch every nut and bolt, every minute adjustment, etc etc. They have sponsors committments and other committments to be at, and are not in the garage, under the hood, under the car for every waking minute like the rest of the crew would be.

    • Tomorrow is my day to shut everything down, turn water off and say good by tell  next May, boy that hurts!    
    • First problem: work.  Had something come up last minute on Tuesday that required I come in Wednesday.  Finally out and ready to get some rest before hitting it for 4 days instead of 5, but I’m here!   Birds have been disappearing this week on the strong winds but there are still pockets and presumably more on the border areas/ice line.  Nice weather predicted for tomorrow and a good bunch of birds were scouted today.  We’ll see what happens.  I hear we’re in for a big blow this weekend.
    • Well may be next year I'll try and creep by!  Depending who wins in Midterms and if we are still talking to each other then!! 😋
    • Anyone care to help out on this topic?
    • Blue Jays don't chew holes in my soffit But I only have a couple and they don't seem to bother the other birds.   One reason might be that they are too big to sit on the perches on the feeders, so they get to scratch for spillage.  
    • Yeah, of that deer farm and the ag boys who allegedly supervise them.  Or maybe we will get the story of how it has been around for many decades and nobody noticed it until now...
    • Seeing good numbers of birds so far this year.  
    • I went up north to our seasonal spot this past weekend and winterized the camper. 😥   We also ended up moving it to a different spot in the campground that is larger and more private and has a deck! I already can't wait for next years camping season! Still waiting for a visit from @leech~~ too. 😉   I might still go up again this fall if the weather ever warms up but this Saturday looks like it will be cold again up there. 35 degrees and windy is the forecast. We can still use our camper but there is no water in the campground so it is not conducive for bringing the wife. If we would still get a warmer weekend (above freezing at night) they will turn the water on in the shower houses at least so we could have a bathroom.
    • That's his story and he is sticking to it.
