Kill the Lucky Dog Rule!

Kill the Lucky Dog Rule!

Post by Thago » Wed, 16 Aug 2006 11:22:34


I'm all for the death of the Lucky Dog. The only one who can give a driver
something in the race is another driver. Not sure where this LD came to
life or why it is now being sourly contested but I can quickly see it is a
menace to good racing.

NASCAR needs to kill it now. It is causing too much contraversy, confusion  
and hard feelings. Hell some drivers are including the LD in their race
strategy!That's just too much "gimme" stuff.

Get rid of it at road courses.
Not needed there.

The lucky dog rule isn't going away anytime soon. It was installed by NASCAR
as a tool to help them help Junior be more competitive. Watch how fast the
'debris' caution comes out next time Junior is down a lap and in LD position.
If a mosquito so much as flys near the track with Junior in LD then a yellow
comes out. It's embarrassing to watch.

Indeed. That explains why 20 drivers have more lucky dogs this year
than Dale Jr. does.

Moron.

And why 2 Hendrick drivers made up NINE laps between the 2 of them in
as many weeks.

*** theories, too, huh?

How soon they forget the 3 Lucky Dog laps Earnhardt got back in the August
race at Bristol last year to get a top 10 finish.

You must be a newbie. Try watching a season or two of racing before calling
others names. At this point I'll have to write your position off as one of
ignorance of cup racing and how it really works.

No, I've been watching racing for years. However, I am cognizant enough
to realize that with something as unpredictable as racing, it is nearly
impossible to implement a rule that would solely benefit one driver.
And the stat that I quoted shows it. No, it's not because NASCAR has it
out for Junior, it's just that you hate him, and by extension, you feel
anytime he crashes, or runs bad, it shows his true ability, or that
anytime he wins or finishes well, it was because of assists by NASCAR
or by cheating and manipulating the rules. It's one thing to root
against a driver, but to make unfounded assertions like yours
diminishes the integrity of the sport at a time it needs to be building
integrity.

How about Gordon at Indy this year? Kyle Bush at Watkins Glen? Where
are all the nutjobs like Electrician saying that Nascar only put the
rule in place to benefit them?

Luck of the draw, babe, luck of the draw.  It could have been any other
two drivers in the field.

Apparently it was put in place to benefit Chevy drivers, eh?
