Great list. How about a new driver over the age of 25, who doesn’t sound/look like he/she just came off Madison Ave…and can actually drive a race car consistently well. Does Harry Gant come to mind?

Great List!! Nascar has gotten to be such big business, the drivers cannot afford to actually RACE FOR THE FUN OF IT!!!! Dale Sr. always raced to have fun and enjoy it. OOH for the good ole’ days!!

NFL..all that does is cut into the coverage of our racing..NBC over the last few years cut into race coverage to show some dumb football game. I don’t know why you put it on the list. Football, basketball, baseball, soccer…all interfere with race coverage…that entry makes no sense where as the rest of the list does.
