NASCAR Diveristy goes up in flames at Daytona

“If we don’t get diversity right, this sport will not achieve what it needs to achieve from a popularity standpoint,”-Brian France  [NASCAR Seeks Diversity But Finds the Goings Slow , By Seth Livingstone, USA Today, April 27, 2007]

Well Mr. France; Did you get this “diversity thing” right? Did you achieve what you wanted to for this sport?

Because if your Drive to Diversity program was rolled out so that Latin-Americans could roll into dryer trucks filled to the brim with jet fuel you can give yourself a pat on the back.

As one writer for Pennsylvania’s ‘Fan Line’ blog put it:

“WHAT A SPLENDID display of driving, Mr. Montoya. No worries, you can still probably get a job driving an 18-wheeler in Pennsylvania.

I HAVE SEEN Juan Pablo Montoyas name been abbreviated as J.P.in the past. Does it now stand for jet propellent?”

It is lucky that no one was killed in this ongoing social experiment, but we should all count our blessings that “diversity” persevered.  Can you imagine what might have happened if they had let the General Lee on the track during the opening ceremonies? I shudder when I think about the possible consequences.- Webmaster
