  • Cheever quote to "cab" country....

    Eddie Cheever's quote regarding driving at Richmond that "it's like flying a fighter jet in a gymnasium" was applied to driving stock cars at Bristol by Steve Park at our local Family Race night. No comparison in my way of thinking.

    Indy cars are to fighter jets as NASCAR cars are to:

    (Fill in the blanks)

    -The Spruce Goose

    -The Goodyear Blimp

    -One of those cartoon characters held by rope by twenty people in the Macy's parade?

      How about, "It's like flying a big, lumbering military cargo jet in a gymnasium"?

              I'd say all that's required is a visit to the gymnasium to compare.

                    Eddie Gossage of the Texas Motor Speedway is credited as being the first. And not when the silly appendage wavers did their best imitation of the French in WWII.

                        Not quite as fast, but still quick enough.
