Should Race drivers be allowed to compete in different series events ?
Just like this past weekend, a few Nextel Cup Series teams had veteran road course drivers in thier cars, why, because they are the best at what
Is this fair ? I don't think so, I think that the car owners should have to put thier regular season driver in the car every race, unless the
driver is I'll or unable to compete for a specific reason.
Let's say this is the case, a driver is ill, then should a driver from another series or "league" be allowed to get in the car ? I say no again...
they should have to stand by for a driver who was not able to qualify for the race, let them compete in the car.
Yes, I'm saying this partially becuase of the situation of last Sundays' race.... Greg Fellows, veteran road course driver started 43rd and in a
matter of laps was in the middle of the pack and shortly there after was at the front.... with under 20 laps to go, there he was right behind the
leaders, competing for the win.
I don't think he should have been in the race to start with.
What do you guys think ?
