Kyle Petty may not have won a pole at Daytona, but he did win the first race he was in there, in the ARCA series.

And to his own credit, KP also mentioned that he himself was not a racer either.

Lets us not forget all of these local short tracks that micro manage with inversions, redraws, handicapping and all sorts of other "gimmicks' to make the racing seem more exciting then it really would be if they did it properly. That is no doubt where the idea atrted from, but it was, is and always will be a poor idea.

They don't handicap the running or cycling races at an Olympics now do they? Fastest man wins, and that is the object of the exercise.

Maybe that multi class sportscar racing isn't so bad after all now is it? it is actually the way racing is supposed to be!
