Christopher Olmstead – Keselowski Is Wrong

Well by following Brian’s logic I would suppose that NASCAR is also bias against drivers like Cole Whitt, Regan Smith, David Ragan, Jeb Burton, Michael Annett and others like them. NASCAR only talks about those drivers when they wreck. When Cole Whitt and is under-funded team are running in the top-25, there is no mention of it, how bias is that?

Does Jeff Gordon have an ownership stake in HMS? Yes he does. Does that make him incapable of doing his job? No, it doesn’t.

Chase Elliott led a lot of laps on Monday at Pocono. Heck, one could argue that Monday was easily Elliott’s most dominant performance of his 2016 NASCAR season. Couple that with the fact that he is a rookie and is putting together a historically impressive rookie season, and of course the result is going to be Gordon and others talking about him. It also doesn’t help that others in the booth serve Gordon Elliott and HMS questions the entire broadcast.

Gordon drove in the Cup Series in 2015 which means that he brings with him a unique perspective with some unique stories. That being said, his stories are going to be tied to HMS and HMS people (like his former teammates and crewmen) since that’s where he raced his entire career. It would be like putting Peyton Manning in the broadcast booth and not expecting him to talk in-depth about players that he played with or coaches that he interacted with throughout his career.
