I think NASCAR would be happier if their were no drivers in the sport... Then they could just sell 3 hours of ads, not have to bother showing any racing or bother trying to control their drivers. Pure profit.

Hey pemberton, why don't you just give the drivers "canned notes" so they will say the correct (nascar)wording. Its rather obvious that you DO NOT like constructive criticism. How else are you going to find out the problems with your NEW cars. It is very difficult to get them right the first time. Just look at the COT junk you shoved down our throats. All the drivers should get together and not say anything to the reporters. Just direct them to you and "wisdom".

Seems like the USA is a land of freedom UNLESS you are a nascar driver-here you may NOT be truthful. Seems as though nascar i getting pset with the drop in attendance/loss of interest and is trying to bully their way back. Won't work a lot of fans have analegiance to the drvers-not nascar per say.

NASCAR really!! Can't you take the fact that your car is turning out to be just like The Car of the Future apiece of crap. Hamlin simply stated that he did not like the car as well as the past cars. He was not banging his chest and making nasty comments! so don't be so sensitive. Just because you spent three years building this non stock car you are so proud of that may or may not work out it is ultimately the driver's safety that you should be most concerned of not fining someone. Sit down, talk to them, and get their feedback. Last, I knew this is a country with the freedom of speech and opinion, but If a driver does not like the car that is their opinion!
