  • IRL about to improve!

    Hey, I've been away from the computer
    for the week and was looking forward
    to seeing some great discussion about
    the new Gen IV and about how much
    the competition level is going to improve
    in the next few races - it might actually
    look like the old IRL where 50% of
    the field had a legit shot at winning.
    That is very exciting to me.


    But, what do I see instead - alot of belly-
    aching and complaining about rule
    bending, etc. etc. Tomas' comments
    after the race were EXTREMELY
    unprofessional. I guess I shouldn't
    have really expected a mature response
    from him. As for Chip's comment - does
    anyone really think he cares about the
    future sucess of the league. No -
    Chip only cares about (1) making $$,
    (2) winning races and will cry and
    complain leveling the playing field
    impacts (1) or (2).


    Look folks, there is
    (1) a precendent for engine upgrade -
    the Nissan a couple of years back
    and (2) the engine was already approved
    and just needed an engine manufactuer
    to badge it.

    The end result is an IRL that is much,
    MUCH stronger where 1/4 the field
    can now be competitive. Please tell
    me how that is, in any way bad.

    I thought for a minute you were posting lyrics from a Dylan tune.

          I've noticed that when the B&M crowd takes over the board I tend to post a lot less.

          Let 'em whine.

          One of my friends is a recent IRL fan. She doesn't care AT ALL how/why/where the new Chevy engine came from. All that matters to her is that Sam is competitive again, and isn't handicapped by a crap engine.

              Thank goodness it isn't anything we haven't already heard about. I just couldn't stand it if the IRL got any better. It's probably too good now. We are never going to be able to be entertained by anything but blood curling action. If it gets any better I'll need a zanex before every race.

                              Do we still have that?

                              Can you drum up Eric (Dreyerfan's) gem for old times sake?

                              Something about the bugs at Kentucky, and how big they were, followed by the last line "Arrgghh". If I recall correctly

                              "And da bugs, dem bugs,
                              They are so big and they bite,
                              Arggghh"
