There's been many conversations on here lately of who is the most talented in NASCAR and other types of motorsports. When we are growing up and play the stick and ball sports in with our friends, we can tell who has the most natural talent and athelitic ability and I wasn't one of them. When they get into the Public School System they get a chance to prove themselves at virtually no cost to themselves or their families. Everybody who wants to try out for a team can at virtually no cost . The most talented, if they want to, usually get scholarships or go into the minor leagues and eventually into the pros.
In todays world in motor sports if don't grow up in a family that has the financial assets to get you into motor sports at a very young age and you don't get major financial help, you're not getting there.
That leads me into a couple of questions:
(1) Hypothetically if Nascar was open to every kid who wanted to race a car and there was a system like they have in the public school system for developing race car drivers. What percentage of drivers that are at the top levels of NASCAR now would be there ?
(2) Of all the drivers that are now in the top class in Nascar, which ones do you feel could make it in one of the major pro sports leagues?
