Another American (with Gordon and Stewart levels of talent) has fallen through the cracks and gone the way of taxi cabs. Kyle Larson won in his debut in a Super Late Model in Florida tonight in the Pete Orr Memorial 100. He had never raced that type of race car before.
I'm tired of seeing diverse drivers with this kind of talent go South. STEP UP Indycar owners and help bring this sport back to the level it was when we had names like Foyt, Unser, Rutherford, etc. I'm tired of the sub par talent level. The Indycar champion was a guy who couldn't hack it in NASCAR (where they race primarily ovals which according to most here are supposed to be so much easier than road courses). Maybe its the other way around? Has anyone ever thought maybe it takes more than just outbreaking a guy to pass on an oval (dirt or pavement) hence the reason guys like Larson, Stewart, Gordon, Kahne, Newman, etc are so talented and can jump into just about any kind of race car and win? Look at how bad the Indycar guys looked in go-karts for crying out loud at the IMIS race at the Conseco fieldhouse or at Eldora during the Prelude in dirt late models. Go-karts are supposed to be THE place to learn the early skill of driving a formula car yet Stewart waxed the Indycar guys!!!
This ends my rant, of which I'm sure I'll get blasted for....oh well.
