This week in NASCAR, Silly Season edition: Here's what our readers have to say


We know that you can't read all of the amazing comments at Alt-Driver, so each week, we bring you a sampling of what people said about out most popular stories, and this week, they were the NASCAR TV ratings drops, TapeGate, Kes continuing to bash Toyota and more. The comments, as usual, were biting, sharp, insightful, and just plain funny. Here are a few:

 

ON NASCAR'S DROPPING TV RATINGS:

Kenny J Brayman If they went back to real racing instead of this romper room snowflake crap I would watch again. NASCAR has been going down nthe toilet ever since Richard Petty retired.

Al Reed I quit watching because every damn weekend the same teams win!! It's the most boring thing on TV!! Hell I used to never miss a race! Just not entertaining anymore!! Money corrupts everything!!

Carol Sutphin Too many rules and regulations! Not allowed to RACE for fear of penalties! Bad announcers on NBC! Poor management! LET them RACE!

Jay Davidson The only reason I kept cable was to watch Asscar and now got rid of cable.not missing a thing here. Will not pay for a ticket either. Wasted of money Asscar.

ON THE CHASE ELLIOTT POST-RACE PENALTIES FOR TAPEGATE

Pat Bunch-Watts I am so sick of this. Every week you just wait to hear who is getting pooped on. NASCAR let the drivers drive the cars. If the car passed pre-race inspection then let what happens happen. Pre-race inspection is hard enough all by itself

Keith Pauley It's awful strange when a team starts closing in on the Toyotas they get hammered. Yet the Toyotas go to back of the field 2-3 times and still end up winning. But they always pass inspection. Strange huh ?

Bill Poole And NASCAR wonder why ratings are down!!! Frances just a greedy family. All they care about is putting money in their pockets !!!!

ON KASEY KAHNE JOINING LEAVINE FAMILY RACING

Matthew Zerbe Tier 3 team. Hendrick ruined this guy he was just testing for Jimmy and Chase. Junior, well, he just sucks.

Jeff Johnson Field filler car that will end his so called career. Lol

Stephen Vollgraff He will never win again

ON TONY STEWART BELIEVING DANICA PATRICK WILL FIND A RIDE

Jim Powell Someone please tell me what she has done for NASCAR. She shows sex, ok cool. She has a draw from men who will look at her photos and so on. Her time is up. What has she done on the track? One thing is she whines and complains. She wanted a big boy job, she got it and is about to move on. Good.

Randall Gary Hogan If a team wants to win races he will not hire Danica Patrick. She can't win in the cup series. There r a lot of drivers better at driving than her.

Pam Burgan Senyk She can run her clothing line she's done as a driver

ON PENSKE SAYING BRAD KESELOWSKI AND HIS TOYOTA CRITICISM DON'T REFLECT THE TEAM'S THINKING

Jeffrey Kenyon I agree with Kes on this. At least he has the manhood to stand up!!!!! Penske probably working on a deal with Toyota that he ain't telling nobody

Charlene Santo Green I think that Brad is 100 percent correct!!! Because I thought that all the cars were suppose to be equal in speed and horsepower. Well it sure doesn't seem to be that way. The Turds r kicking Chevys and Fords behinds in speed. That just doesn't make sense to me

Todd Robillard Waaaaaahhhhhhh.waaaaaahhhhhh. Toyota......waaaaahhhhhhhhh. good grief people. You really have short memories. This is just a normal competition cycle of the sport. Everyone has gone through it. Toyotas dominance isn't going to last forever. So they have something figured out. Well they better enjoy it. Because the Camaro is coming next year. You think you see dominance now? Just wait.......
