And I'm not just talking crap when I say Knaus cheats. He's been caught 4-5 times. Which means he's probably gotten away with it at least twice as much. I also agree with you about Kyle. It's great to see him clean up in Trucks and Nationwide, but I think if he took at least 1 night a weekend off, he'd win a lot more Cup races, he'd probably have a title by now. I still want to see Mark Martin get a trophy before he's done. He's damn well earned it, but every time he gets screwed somehow.
To be honest, I think too much racing can to more harm than good. A lot of drivers say just one race is mentally draining. But if you do three a week on average, you have to feel like crap going into that third one. Some say doing the other divisions is good practice for the Cup series, but I think it can be overdone. I think it's better to put more focus and effort on the big series. I mean, Gordon raced full time Nationwide for what, 2-3 years? Then he went to Cup and won four championships, only racing a few Nationwide races here and there from '99-'00, and he hasn't raced in another Nationwide race since 2000 to my knowledge (but hasn't won
a Cup since '01). Heck, even Jimmie Johnson cut down on Nationwide and Truck races after he got the full time deal with Hendrick. Dale Earnhardt didn't even dedicate much of his career to Nationwide races like Edwards and Busch, and he won seven championships. Yet Busch and Edwards can win Nationwide championships and races, but not so much with Cup anymore. Unfortunately, Mark Martin has been doing the Cup-only thing for a few years and has yet to win that trophy. Poor guy...
He has a better chance than Joonyur though.
