  • How many Bet 3 players really love Jeff Gordon today?

    Yeah, I thought so.

    Full results and standings will be up by tomorrow morning.

      Or, you could have said "How many Bet 3 players will be betting on Jeff Gordon after today?"

      A: Not me.

        I think that's back to back donuts for me REGARDLESS of Jeff Gordon!!:angry-smi

          I am as much the opposite of a Jeff Gordon fan as there is, but he was going for the win, I like that. I think last year the difference between Jeff Gordon's year and Jimmie Johnson's was that in that position Gordon would have parked where he was, while Johnson would have charged for the win. I think coming in 2nd in the points changed Jeff's way of thinking and racing, and I applaud that. There is nobody as dull in points racing as Matt Kenseth, so perhaps they both got what they asked for.
          It's always been about the Indy 500!

            Kenseth got what he asked for because you think his racing is dull? Interesting take.

              hmmm

              Don't care for Jeffy...not in the slightest; HOWEVER, as glad as I was to see him screw the pooch, I am SINCERELY happy that he wasn't hurt or killed from the impact of that wreck.

              HOLY DOG SNOT BATMAN!

                Maybe I said that wrong, his game is ride-around-and-collect-points, I'm an old school racer, I once traveled and raced with a guy that was the probably the original "outlaw," he probably could have won 5 NASCAR Modified championships if he stayed "home." Instead he followed the money trail to the big races, and than skipped some for "deal" money, and he never stunk up a promoter's show. He detested points chasers, and I guess I learned that from him.

                  Heh, I've just posted opinion in the points thread.

                  Kenseth a cruise and collect? Hardly, he's usually at the sharp end when it matters. If it's "cruise" it's because you have to cruise for 95% of the races. If he was cruising, how come he was overtaking Gordon for a position and looking for the win?

                    It's not Richie Evans or definitely not Jerry Cook. Bugs Stevens? Frankie Schneider?

                      I can't agree with this at all.

                      Kenseth drives hard (see his mano-y-mano duel with Jimmie Johnson at Texas last year), but he's also smart and selective on when to do it, which is fine by me since these races are ridiculously long anyway.....you gotta be there at the end, which he usually is.

                              That is a huge over-simplification. He gained that reputation the year he won the championship and I think it is wrong. He won a ton of races before getting into NASCAR. He didn't ride around in the Busch series. The year before he won the championship he had the most wins in the Cup series and in 2006 he had four wins.

                              I do believe he is generally better than some at realizing his car's limits. Perhaps it is because he worked on and repaired his own vehicles as a young racer unlike many of the drivers who wreck equipment and don't really appreciate what that means in terms of work for others.

                              Seems to me like a lot of people equate his frequently low-key demeanor with not trying to win. I doubt too many of the other Cup drivers look at it that way.
