I agree.............8Ballin wrote:Yeah, the 1993 season may have been the best ever with Penske back with Rusty and the MGD car, it seems like when they switched to Miller Lite they were never the same. But the mid 90s is when everything started changing, HMS, Roush and others really started spending big time money and expanding, you would think Roger would have thrived in this environment but for the longest time he tried to be cheap and keep things small with his Nascar deal ("Penske Racing South") as he had a number of other ventures going on. This started the downfall of RCR and Dale Sr. as well as they could not keep up with the money of Hendrick.
Even through the early 2000s Penske was still trying to keep things small with Nascar and I think is a good reason they started to fall so far behind, along with that crap Dodge they had.
Only in recent years Penske woke up, building up a huge shop in Charlotte and moving all their racing teams there, ending his ALMS/Rolex program and ramping up a full-time Nationwide program instead, and they seemed to finally figure out you need a boatload of engineers and full-time people dedicated to Nascar, not that it should be this way, but again HMS forced this issue...

Brad may not be the greatest at public speaking,but he's for real when he's behind the wheel and i'm wondering now if HMS wishes they took on Brad over Jr.
Rusty and Ryan had the speed,not the luck,Kurt is just an idiot who lost his way.
$HIT....I'd even be willing to wager that Mr H is kicking himself in the a$$ for lettin' go of KB in light of a couple of shortcomings that I feel have since been addressed. He's superior to JOOOOOOONYER on ANY given day in ANY form of racing.....Imagine the new and improved KB in a HMS chevy, kinda scary if ya ask me.
I like BK's bluntness,You don't have to be a great public speaker, all you gotta do is show enough TRUE emotion and conviction in your interviews that eventually people overlook your speaking skills.
That gives you an advantage that others don't enjoy. L@@k at JOOOOOOOONYER, You'd get a better interview from a sponge, BUUUUUUT, people hang on his every word.
