I am constructing an analysis of Jeff Gordon's performance prior to the
Circle Track "Traction Control" article and afterward.  Here is what I need
your help with:

Gordon's finish position and qualifying position on:

2/19    Daytona
2/26    Rockingham  (I need qual. position)
3/5     Richmond
3/12    Atlanta  (I need qual. position)
3/26    Darlington
4/2     Bristol
4/9     N. Wilkes
4/23    Martinsville
4/30    Talladega
5/7     Sears Point
5/20    C***te -- Winston Select
6/11    Pocono  (I need qual. position)

I have the information for the remainder of the schedule.

** I also need the date that the Circle Track issue hit the news stands.

** I hope to have this done (and posted here) by the weekend.

How about comparing Earnhart's record with that article too?  He came on
strong after it was published.  Maybe that article incited his team to
use traction control.

Again, as in many previous replies to similar ridiculous posts, all I can
say to this is "What?"

Really, why bother?  If Circle Track (or it's source) is too gutless to
name names, why bother?  And while you're wasting your time, might as
well run your analysis for every driver.  Too much work?  Then why bother?

No, but my faith was a bit shaken by the sight of Steve Grissom
with his WWF buddy.

"Nice Pants"? Are you referring to the commercial where the
guy breaks a motorcycle or is there something more insidious
going on here? Hmmmm?

Yeah, most drivers will use the gas pedal as their traction control,
if you press too hard, you may lose grip.  

Would ya really think that RC & DE would talk about an illegal part
on the radio?!?! HAHAHA!  Everyone listens in on those things,
especially
NASCAR.  I thought it was funny as hell in Michigan when Ted Musgrave
pushed Bill Elliot after his fuel ran out.  Heard Terry Labonte on the
radio say... "well, if they're gonna do that kind of s**t they
shouldn't
discuss it on the radio!"

Later,
Darren

(snipped list of races)

Your data will show that Gordon's performance slipped signifigantly after
the article on TC. You, or someone else, might conclude that this means
Gordon was using TC and stopped. Posts will inevitably fly about this
stain on the white linen of NASCAR Winston Cup, calling for Gordon's head.
Before this happens, folks might want to consider that there could be 25
other reasons for a late season fade by the 24 car. Elliott had a late
season fade in '92. Wallace in '94. Performance data alone will not prove
that Gordon was using TC.

Pretty suspicious how DW managed to get that pole, isn't it? I mean, no
pole for 3 and a half years, and then suddenly a fast lap? With all the
talk about DW retiring, you have to wonder if NASCAR let him win one just
to keep him around for another year, don't you?  [Which smiley are you
supposed to use for that sarcasm stuff anyway?]

Congratulations. You've been accepted to the freshman class of the school for

The part that really irritates me is that I wasn't even fishing.

Any body got some pliers?

Nooooooo, That's not traction control, that's his four wheel steering!  He
steers the front with his hands, and the ass end with his right foot!  I
seen him do it on TV!
