Not to mention that many start-and-parkers setup their cars strictly to qualify with no intention of running the full race. . .

The NFL makes rules that protect certain players at the expense of others. They make rules to favor offense over defense, in order to make fans happy. They make rules that allow small market teams to compete on a somewhat level playing fields with the big market teams. They do that last one to keep things even, just as Nascar makes rule changes to keep things even between the different teams.

Again, you're using polar opposites to illustrate your case, but it still is not apples to apples. Offense over defense are polar opposite on the playing field. What NASCAR does to help Ford compete with Chevrolet, for example, is kind of like the NFL saying since the Steelers are so much better than the Panthers, when they play a Steeler TD is only 4 points while a Panther TD will be 6 points.

And as far as big market versus small market- the last example you want to use is NASCAR. There are what, a handful of team owners controlling the entire thing? The Wood brothers 21 car, part owned by Richard Petty with a Roush engine, yeah, there's equality.

So close yesterday...

You know that a racer has fallen off their pedestal when someone bumps a several month old thread to discuss that racer's second place finish.

I've said it a million times. not often on this board, but until Jr stops being so damn nice, he won't win any races. He was aggressive before he was injured in the fire, and I firmly believe that is why he hasn't dominated a race like he did before. Sure he won a couple of times after, but it was a couple fuel mileage wins, not racing wins. He needs to be more like his dad and quit worrying about his image, focus on racing.
