This is the Statt Mann Baby. Time to Scatt a little bit.
My mind was bumping around this weekend. The fight after the NASCAR Xfinity race amused me. When they fight in a stick and ball game we complain about the thugs in those sports.
When they fight after a NASCAR race the drivers are considered passionate about winning. Unless, of course, Darryl Wallace throws water on a driver then he needs some talking too by NASCAR officials.
Funny how all that works in that sport.
Then I heard a conversation about the wind during the Cup race today in Kansas. All the talking heads had an opinion about what the wind does to a car traveling at 200 miles an hour.
It reminded me of a conversation I once had with NHRA Funny Car driver Gary Densham. He described how he had to compensate for the break in the grandstand as he traveled down a drag strip at 300 plus. All it took was the break. Forget fighting the winds on race day.
Funny where the mind goes when you actually listen to people talk.
