Nobody said anything about removing uncompetitive teams.If you removed all of the teams that aren't competitive, you wouldn't have much left. I think that all of these guys are important to the sport. While Kyle isn't my driver, I would miss him in the sport. I hope that he continues as an announcer. He's been around a long time & I think that he adds allot to the broadcast.
I'm not a big fan of Junior, either.Could one substitute Dale Earnhardt, Jr. in the above statement?
I disagree totally. Kyle has added a lot to the sport and has lost a lot to the sport. I hope that Kyle and Richard do not have tension because of this. THAT would be a tragedy in and among itself.Nobody said anything about removing uncompetitive teams.
Remove Kyle Petty, and put a young up-and-comer in there instead, who has a chance to mature into a good, competitive driver.
Kyle wasn't much to begin with, and he's dead in the water now.
Shocker that you and I disagree . I think personalities make a sport. Kyle and Mikey are among the best that do not necessarily perform to expection but make it interesting. Imagine if we had Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson's personalities across the board ... how boring would NASCAR be? Makes me cringe thinking about it.I have to agree with Musicologist on that KP should have been replaced a long time ago. Even when Adam died in 2000, Kyle started 2001 in the 45 Sprint Car and missed 7 races that year. He was barely able to keep the car in the top 35 and last year he proved he didn't need to be in the car to finish in the 30's every week.
Richard Childress saw the writing on the wall back in 1979 and took himself out of his car and put someone else in it. We all see how that turned out...:shock:
Just because Kyle has managed to do great things with NASCAR and the Victory Junction Gang Camp doesn't mean he can drive a race car. His 8 wins are nice, but can they keep his job when he hasn't won a race in over 14 years?
Nope, but you could put M. Waltrip in there! If Kyle sucks, what the hell does Waltrip do? I think Kyle should have gotten out a long time ago too, but I probably wouldnt have either. As for it causing tension between Richard and Kyle, that has been there for years it seems.Could one substitute Dale Earnhardt, Jr. in the above statement?
