More on the 66 Team….
after looking at this subject more and more, I have a real issue with the way NASCAR has handled this. I mean NASCAR says that because the 66 car driven by Dave Blaney, qualified 5th and even led 3 laps before retiring to the pits, that they think something may be up. Well it may be, like the team worked hard, got a good driver who could drive and they done good. But if you read between the lines it seems like NASCAR thinks the team may not be on the up and up… WOW really? What about some of the other teams who may not be on the up and up? Like the 48 car? To me a car that is always up front week in and week out, regardless of the track are the ones that should be looked at. Especially one that has been caught cheating before, like the 48 car. All the HMS teams share information “so they say” but you don’t see the other 3 Hendricks teams up front every week do you? Nope you don’t, and the ordeal with the 48 beating the 31 car out of the pits last week leaves a little to make you think, I have rewound the tape and Fox never showed the light or when the caution actually came out with regards to when the 48 car pitted, now NASCAR and the 48 team say they were in the pit stall before the yellow came out, it was never proven, and Fox likes to go back and show things that seem to be in question, but for some reason they over looked this one. if the 48 team got a lucky break every now and then, it would be one thing, but it seems that every week they are on the receiving end of some kind of break, and never on the bad end, always the good end. To some it may not be such a big deal, but apparently it was to some since that seemed to be one of the most popular questions on the post race interview…..makes you wonder….
Now far be it for me to judge how NASCAR does things but it does make one wonder…….
Off of the NASCAR topic for a second, in the coming weeks I am going to be highlighting some of our local drivers who will be running at the newly revamped North Georgia Speedway (http://www.northgaspeedway.net/) also some who will be running at the dirt track just north of us, Boyd’s Speedway (http://www.boydsspeedway.com/) letting everyone see just what kind of drivers we got here in the hills of North West Georgia. Look for these to start in the next week or so, and I hope to get better at posting the pictures……
