The experts are tipping Kevin Harvick after his win at Kansas however with Jeff Gordon picking up pole he's always a serious contender. BTW I came across this fact this morning...This is Jeff Gordon's 74th pole in 720 NASCAR Sprint Cup races - 1 in every 10 races?? WTF is this some kind of record.
So what does it take to run Nascar Inc
Came across the reports this week of Brian France's divorce and his salary leaks.
in September 2005, documents list France's assets of more than $554 million, including over $218 million in International Speedway Corp. stock. His total income for 2004 was $9.1 million, including an $8.7 million salary from NASCAR, a privately owned company. France also was paid by ISC and NASCAR Digital Entertainment.
Wow.... I mean seriously I don't begrudge a self made go getter....but that's some serious money for running Nascar Inc. Makes you think next time you shell out high prices for some track tickets that there might be some "overhead" they can cut to reduce costs and make Nascar more viable for families.
What are your thoughts on this?
I'm assuming if found guilty he'll probably get a suspension but going to be months I guess......feel free to post your thoughts at - https://www.facebook.com/LiveNascarChat/posts/10152603485030931
NASCAR's Travis Kvapil will race despite arrest
According to court records reviewed by The Sporting News, Kvapil allegedly pulled his wife into a bedroom by her hair and struck her in the head. He is not permitted to return home and can only contact his wife by phone or email on matters concerning their three children — Kelsey, Carson and Caden. He faces a Nov. 19 court date.
Some of the comments on our Facebook page are worth reading eg
-> Disappointing. Made will suspend a driver for a racial slur, but won't do anything if a driver hits a woman.
See you all online during the races at http://www.LiveNascarChat.com this weekend or on Twitter at @LiveNascarChat before then.
