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.

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
