Ford Drivers - Chevy Drivers

Post by Lawhead » Sat, 04 Sep 1999 04:00:00


The post about Ernie Irvan's retirement meaning 1 less Ford driver got me
thinking about the differences between Ford and Chevy drivers.  Simply my
Humble Opinion, and GROSS generalizations, but here's my take:

FORD Drivers:
Best represented by Dale Jarret and Mark Martin.  Throw in Jeff Burton and
you've got the 3 top points Ford drivers.  More conservative, steady. The best
Ford drivers are nice guys. These guys are great driver's, but they don't
inspire much reaction from non-fans.......    Rudd's switch from Chevy to Ford
made sense.

CHEVY Drivers:
Start with Dale Earnhardt.  Add Jeff Gordon and Mike Skinner and you've got 3
of the 4 chevy drivers in the top 10 in points.  These guys tend to be more
agressive, "whatever it takes", "drive the wheels off" kind of drivers.  Love
'em or hate 'em, there's no middle ground.  Ernie did most of his driving in a
Chevy, I'll always associate him with the Swervin' Irvan #4 Kodak car.  Ernie
didn't fit in with the Ford stable, 'cause he's got a Chevy personality!

That said, Who's miscast?
Jimmy Spenser - Belongs in a Chevy.  Go Jimmy Go!
Bobby Labonte - well, since I left Pontiac out, put him in a Ford.
Tony Stewart -Another Ponyguy.  Still young, but looks Ford to me
Bobby Hamilton - should be Ford.

NOTE that I don't mean to demean either manufacturer, nor the drivers.  All the
drivers mentioned above are super drivers, None of the suck, or are Gay or
whatever other insult is "in" today.
