I'll give Bahre a 1/2 a credit point for his opinion on Waltrip but until he changes his view on North Wilkesboro he will be just as detrimental to the sport as he thinks DW is...

I love Bob Bahre's straight-shooting style.  We need more of that. 

But as Cheryl and Lou, I would love him even more if he gave up one of his dates back to North Wilkesboro so that I could see a NASCAR race there.  I have only heard about how good the racing was there and never got to actually see it, even on television.

Don't look for that to happen anytime soon, though.  Especially since the September race, which was there, is now part of the Chase.  And besides, it's near Boston, so it serves NASCAR to hold this event near a big city. Sad

Oh, Lou and I have no illusions that Bahre would ever give his stolen Winston Cup date back to NW.  That is not going to happen.  We'd just like to see him agree to reopen the track for any kind of racing.  Co-owner, Bruton Smith, has said more than once he'd be willing to reopen the track for late models, USAR, etc, but Bahre has gone on record saying he wouldn't open it again "during his lifetime" or something like that or that it could rot for all he cares. Because of that attitude, I'll always dislike the man.  It's just a travesty to have a short track sitting their idle and with grass growing up through the pavement because of his ego.
