(Hampton, GA) - After the tire that Goodyear brought to Atlanta Motor Speedway made for a boring race too watch and drew the ire of some drivers only Tony Stewart is getting criticized. Jimmy Spencer said Tony had it wrong but then seemed to change his stance when he heard a Dale Earnhardt Jr. interview that said pretty much the same thing.
I challenge the arguement that some say (Dave DeSpain for one) there were no tires imploding so it made for a safer race. While agree they can't have tires imploding like there was at Las Vegas, the reason it was safer was drivers were afraid to "get after it" so to speak, in fear of wrecking because they couldn't get through the turns. He also said he doesn't see NASCAR changing. Of course they won't change since The Ringmaster (Brian France) and Goodyear are joined at the hip!
Tony Stewart had the guts to say what most drivers felt, so he's a whinner? Let see how many people do a Jimmy Spencer when they find out Dale Earnhardt Jr. said the same thing. What's wrong with bringing back Hoosier & Firestone? Isn't it the Amercan Way to have a choice and free enterprise? What are you thoughts on the issue?...bluejay
