Sprint Cup 2011: Week 7, SCAB REPORT


SCAB EARNINGS f/ TEXAS: $318,664.00
SCAB EARNINGS f/ 2011: $2,078,046.00
Four drivers disgraced professional sports and showed NASCAR’s indifference with four drivers sucking in $318.664.00 running the total up to a whopping $2,078,046 for the 2011 season. What makes this more noteworthy is that scab teams do qualify well as shown by Michael McDowell earning the 20th spot for the infamous Phil Parsons gang, and that accidents involving competing teams can happen before the “start and park” entries clear the field. They never should have been on the track in the first place.

Myth: "Start and Park" doesn't hurt anybody.

Reality: The figures provided above show a significant amount of money that is at the expense of competition. These freeloaders are operating at the expense of teams that are trying to do the right things and support their sponsors.

They cheated a team driven by Travis Kvapil out of a chance to compete with a fully sponsored ride. His teammate, David Gilliland wrecked early with only Mike Skinner having quit so far. How is NASCAR supposed to attract sponsors for their race teams when teams that refuse to make the necessary investment and effort to compete can bump legitimate teams off the track? How do the folks at Long John Silver, Travis Kvapil’s sponsor feel about making their investment to support a NASCAR team when they can’t show off their advertising when common slugs like Joe Nemechek and Phil Parsons are raking in almost $80,000 an event? NASCAR we want you to know this is seriously affecting our respect for the sport.

Let NASCAR know that YOU want them to restore integrity to the sport. You work hard for your money and want to see NASCAR teams to their jobs. Sports are for winners not quitters.
