The Interviews

If you're not in a car, I don't want to hear it.

Once again NASCAR fans are debating the latest Carl Edwards and Brad Keselowski on track battle over real-estate. Who did what to whom and when and if it was safe or not... blah, blah, blah.

My issue is with the interviews of driver's parents. I'm all for interviewing the drivers who were actually involved in the on track incident. However, I don't really see the need to interview the parent or spouse or the second cousin's aunt's uncle's best friend's sister of the driver to get their reaction. The reaction of a relative is going to be an emotional one no doubt, but not a professional one. 

Keep the interviews to the people who are actually paid to participate. The opinions of bystanders are going to be emotional not informational. On a side note, when being interviewed about an on track incident try to keep the relatives of the person with whom you have an issue with, out of it. 

If you're not in a car, I don't want to hear it.

  1. preach on sista! Brads dad is a punk. Brad likes to dish things out, but cries fowl when oeople push back. Carl is not the bully. Brad needs to learn quickly that when youpoke the bull with a stick, he's gonna give you his horns
