I bet anything that JJ and Carl are a LOT different when the media isn't around. I call Carl "the politician" because he always has that smile with the PC answers. I don't trust people like that.
But remember when he took that fake swing and the media was saying "wow, that's a side we didn't know about". But the drivers where saying "we all know how he REALLY is".
One of JJ's best friends is Sammy Hagar, and I doubt if Sammy's gonna hang around a boring vanilla person.
So do we blame JJ and Carl for their bland vanilla PC style or nascar for making drivers be this way? Remember, it was nascar who told the drivers, in a 'round about way, to shut up about the COT. And the tires. And the debris cautions. And the ......etc. etc.
Put it another way. If I were a Cup driver, I'd be the same vanilla type too. At least until I was getting close to retiring. There's too much on the line to risk being on nascar's "bad list". From what I've seen, once you get on that list it's dang hard to get off it.
The 48 team is putting everyone on notice
I don't understand why everyone hates JJ. The 48 team is putting everyone on notice that they need to step up their game. Yes I am tired of seeing him win but I am also tired of seeing Carl and Kyle win. The 48 team is doing something only one other driver has done and they deserve the respect they are due.
