Is it my creativeness or are tires turning into a real challenge this season? It’s getting…NO, it’s to the purpose the place nearly each week a tire unexpectedly goes down, places somebody into the wall, after which they proceed to both lose the race or contain means too many different drivers within the wreak.
I’m completely sick of tire failure inflicting all of those wrecks and dictating race winners. There are too many variables to take care of in racing already and unhealthy tires shouldn’t be one other.
Ask Joe Nemechek what he thinks about Goodyear tires this 12 months iRacing leagues. He had a half observe lead with lower than 10 laps to go (tires shouldn’t have been a difficulty) and boooooom into the wall as a result of a tire went down. At Chicagoland tire issues put Kasey Kahne into the wall, Jimmie Johnson had a tire go down (inflicting him to go down a lap) and these drivers didn’t have a number of laps on their tires.
Goodyear’s touch upon the topic “they must carry a greater tire subsequent 12 months to Chicagoland” that is good however what about all the opposite races? Granted there have been a number of tire issues at Chicagoland however tire issues have been a difficulty all season lengthy. Tires are enjoying extra of an element within the out come of races than motors this 12 months and that shouldn’t be the case.
I have no idea how a lot, or even when Goodyear pays NASCAR to be the unique supplier of tires, however regardless of the deal is it isn’t working and the standard of racing is being harm!
I’ve at all times been taught that each time a technique of doing enterprise adversely impacts the product you might be promoting you modify that technique. NASCAR lets car house owners choose drivers, cars, motors, transmissions and rear ends maybe they need to allow them to choose tires too. Possibly subsequent 12 months Nascar ought to carry a greater tire maker.
If Goodyear’s efficiency on the Nascar tracks this 12 months are any indication, using on the Wings of Goodyear may very well be hazardous to your well being.
