  • Cup drivers willing to pay for a NASCAR safety team

    Jimmie Johnson said that drivers are willing to spend their own money to provide a full-time traveling safety team that NASCAR executives have steadfastly refused to pay for.
    The interview is found in the Winston-Salem paper.

    Holy loop-hole Batman!

    Great idea.

    Kinda lets NASCAR off the hook about having to supply a full time creew to every track and series under the NASCAR umbrella.

        Yes it does. That IS a rather clever thing, isn't it?

          One better:

          The drivers put the thing together.

          The drivers find a sponsor that pays for it all. What sponsor wouldn't want to have, as spokesmen, every single NASCAR driver?

          The drivers share the profits, or donate them to charity.

            Sponsorship by a nationally recognized health care or insurance provider ought to be a natural for this venture.

            Hiring Bill Simpson to manage it would be poetic justice.

              I am serious about this. Why doesn't a group of drivers approach Dr. Jerry Punch to spearhead this effort. Who knows better.

                Somebody will "squat" on this idea.:mad: I will be extreamly surprised to see the drivers given this much power. The sactionioning body will NOT accept something they donot have TOTAL control over.

                    How about a better idea? Maybe look before making a boneheaded move that sends other drivers out of the race? That way the safety teams may have a little less to do. Yes, Todd Bodine and Rusty Wallace, I'm talking to YOU....
