# 12 They got'em all in 33+1
And some are not happy about that 1. And one extra to go home Early,But with some extra CASH for His efforts and the cars owner.
Now thats a question that needs to be answered, What is a qualifying spot worth? Does the Driver have any say if His ride wants to be bought out from under him? Seems to Me You train all year and make the show,the owners then say heres a few bucks We dont need you any more. How would that settle with you if it happened to you?
This sort of thing has been going on for years. Specialy when it comes down to championship time. But still at the 500 MONEY talks and as they say BS walks.But I still dont like it.
I remember a race where the driver and car owner each got paid the winners share for letting a big name take over their car for a race some where else. That was double the money they would have won even if they had won it themselves.
As interesting as the Pole and Bump days were this has come to the front.
I am old school and if You didnt do it you shouldnt be part of it!
But as they say every thing has a price. But should it in this case?
It has wrong conotations for our Youngsters.
YOU CAN BUY ANYTHING! You dont have to earn it just buy it.
Enough about that, Nothing will change that.
The Gals got in. Simone had a rough weekend and still got in,Taped burned hands and all.
Even Patrick had Her moments when it was raining and she was next in line. Lots Said, pray for rain, We have had enought of Her, She is bailing next year for NASCAR Let Her go now.
There were at least 9 that got to go home early, Because they couldnt buy their way in ? That just may be truer than we would like to hear.
I didnt like all the Qualifying changes (to confusing) Some were still thinking that top 24 cars after pole day were locked in ? Not true, only top 9 were locked in.
Still 33 are now in and next up is Carb day on Fri then on to the the Greatest Spectacle in Racing!!!
This isnt the first go around about stuff lots of folks dont like that goes on each year here.And for sure wont be the last!
