Radar, I agree about the young guns attracting the sponsorship money.

Level the field with equal cars and the veterans like Marlin, Rudd, Martin, Schrader and B. Labonte would dominate.

Ah dont count him out....he may have lost the edge, but you know racing is in his blood! I would like to see him get on a top team....but like you said Radar the young guys are the stuff right now! I hope the best for ole Sterling!

He's ready to go part-time anyway, but I hate that it turned out the way it did. I was a big fan of Sterlin when he was in the Coors light car. I have no doubt he would have won the championship the year he was injured.

Nemechek is out also.

Rememeber when Sterling got out of the car during a red flag stop several years ago and tried to pull a fender out ?
I saw him in town just prior to Daytona and had to bite my tongue when I told him good luck . I wanted to say "Stay in your car this time "
I also remember when greg Biffle wrecked him ,and he called Greg "bug eyed dummy" during the post wreck interview . \:D
I also rember Sterling wrecking Ryan Newman ,and Ryn said Stering probably couldn't see after his tupee slipped down over his eyes".

I think Ginn is pretty competitive. I know you like Marlin though. But he wasn't doing much in that car. Ole Mark Martin has actually run in their stuff ok.

NCST8, I just saw this post. I too was wondering why Sterling wasn't running as good as Martin and I think I've found the answer..... Many people feel that Ginn only has enough good equipment to put one competitive car on the track. Since Martin is such a huge investment ($10mil+ salary) for Ginn and they have a high dollar sponsor, the good equipment is going into the 01 car.

I think Marlin, Rudd, Schrader, Elliot, Labonte, and many other veterans can still drive the wheels off of a race car. Problem is they don't have the young face the big buck sponsors want.

Hopefully the COT will help the low-budget teams next year.
