Well, Pro Cup is still used by NASCAR for scouting development drivers. A lot of drivers like Chase Elliott started out there. The upside to Pro Cup is that you only have to be 15 to race in it, so those that have stock car talent almost unanimously start out there.

Besides Chase, I couldn't find anyone else in the last few years who made his way up through that series.

K&N east and west are where most upcoming drivers come from, including Larson, Kwasniewski, Ryan Blaney and Darrell Wallace Jr.

Joey Logano, Trevor Bayne, Landon Cassill, and Dakoda Armstrong are a few that started in Pro Cup.

yes you're right but that's going quite a bit back now...I was just saying that in current times (within last 5 yrs), there have been very few drivers that moved up from pro cup. It would be suicide for a driver to think they could move up the ladder to nascar by racing in pro cup right now.

 

And Landon only made one pro cup start in '08, while Dakoda made two pro cup starts in' 08. The experience they got from pro cup didn't expand their careers. Dakoda shined in ARCA, which is what helped him get noticed. As for Landon, I'm just gonna say he was really rich cause in '07 he had a Hendrick ride in busch as a 17 year old lol

Goddammit! Gordon almost had that one!! So close, oh well. He's still 1st in points, which is a guaranteed spot in the Chase, win or not.

NASCAR is more entertaining in person rather than television, though a lot of sports are, such as baseball and golf.

 

I haven't been too deep into NASCAR over the last couple years but I used to be a hardcore fan. Racing in general honestly, especially dirt tracks. Sprint cars, go-karts, enduro races.. they're all pretty fun and nice to watch if you're on the track. We have a track here locally that's just superb for dirt track racing. Oglethorpe Raceway, spent many of beer fueled nights there like any redneck would, howling at the drivers, watching pit crew fights and what not.

 

NASCAR has taken a PG-13 approach over the years and has steered me away from it. I'll catch a race every now and then if I have nothing better to do on a Sunday.. either way, Gordon is the f*cking King.

Following all the headlines I'm seeing, I kind of regret skipping the race last night. I've been pretty bad at this whole "watch some nascar" thing. I'm sure I'll get stuck in when it comes to the chase yo.

Most of the tactics of nascar involve drafting. And that's pretty much it

Only drafting? Let me guess, you're one of those kids who watches the Daytona 500 and instantly assumes that everything you see must be everything. Am I assuming right?

So guess who won at Kansas for the 3rd time?

 

Gordon, bitch! Hell yeah!!

 

For once, there wasn't an idiot throwing a caution in the last 5 laps to screw it up. He was leading near the end and it was actually able to stay green all the way!

Yes no WWE caution today! Nasty accident for Gilliland though....

missed the race but I'm glad gordon won. He's probably my favorite driver and one of the few likeable drivers in nascar right now

Him and Dale Jr are my two favorite drivers.

 

Its just too bad he's really just driving around with a name.

 

Not really a fan of NASCAR but I always liked Gordan, I turned it to the race with less than 30 laps and watched it there; first time in awhile.

I think that's how most people watch NASCAR, I usually turn it on with a few laps to go or start watching it and then leave to do something then by the time I get back its over

Those Penske Fords have some seriously good chassis'. Keslowski is looking the goods IMO.

Although I've met both of them, I don't like either Penske driver.

Junior takes his 3rd win of the season and cleans sweeps Pocono. Johnson can't take a trick atm.

I'd say it'll be a Hendrick driver to win the championship this year.

People are saying Tony hit him on purpose, no he didn't.

 

Kevin Ward got out of his car and ran on the track and ran in front of Stewart's car.

 

This sucks but Tony did nothing wrong. I wonder how this is gonna affect the race tomorrow, as I doubt Tony will be in the race.

It almost kinda looked like Tony was trying to avoid him but i think he isnt going to be racing for a while.....

EDIT: Sh*t the kid died :(

Was it confirmed? I've seen people say he died and other people say he hasn't.

 

Either way I wonder who is gonna replace Tony tomorrow.

Some saying its confirmed some are saying its not but this is one sad situation. I think maybe Reagen Smith will be in the #14 tommorow but idk.

EDIT: Its confirmed by authorities :(

I saw somewhere that Max Papis was gonna do it but thinking now it would make sense to have Smith in the car as he replaced Dale Jr. for 2 races in 2012. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
