I know what you mean. How do you judge a Nascar driver? There are so many variables in judging a Nascar driver. All of them know how to drive but there's a million things that go along with that race team position!ndunn wrote:It would be difficult for me to believe Brad K because he won a championship is the best driver ever. There are so many drivers from the beginning until the chase of 2012 would disagree. Actually there is many variables that could have changed the outcome over the years.

Ryan Newman was coached by Buddy Baker back in his Penske days. They both spent a lot of time together back then. Not sure if Buddy is still helping Ryan?ndunn wrote:I have to totally agree. With the Tec men that are available it is so much more to racing than jumping into a car and wheeling around a dirt track. BUT if we did not have those days we would have nothing. My first race I ever saw was a 1/2 mile dirt track and I was addicted to watching racing at every level. Actually I loved old school drivers and everything that went with it. I read a blog from Darrell Waltrip yesterday that suggested using retired drivers as racing coaches. Something like football etc. I'm not sure I'm for that. Let the driver listen to his team and then get out on the track and race like they've always raced. I don't want to see the Elliott kid race like Jeff Gordon. Not that Jeff wouldn't be a good coach just let the racer figure it out. He'll get enough advice from his crew chief. Actually I'd like to see opinions of others on these thoughts.
