Re: the "Jeff Gordon has never won this race 500"
The sport was pulling from one region of one country and had very little popularity outside that region. Now it's pulling talent from everywhere in the World and THAT'S why you see kids getting contracts now. And technology. It used to be that 3 rednecks with a toolbox could keep these cars on the tracks. No more.
It's completely counterintuitive to think that a talent pool of a few million produced better drivers than the talent pool of a few billion, but....I already know once you've made up your mind that you're right, NOTHING will change it, so why bother?
