I've made this comment before it's a little naive to think that it doesn't take millions of dollars to get a kid from go karts and quarter midgets to the big time. So how do you know who really has the talent. There are probably a very small percentage of kids who would love to race and get the opportunity to race. Look at Michael Jordan who grew up loving NASCAR, how did he get to the big time in basketball through the Public School System and a college athletic scholarship cost his family virtually nothing. I talked to a father last year whose kid was racing ithe 602 crates at Bridgeport, he was from NY state . His kid went from go karts to the crates, he said it was just as expensive to run crates as it was to run the go karts.
Major racing organizations could solve this problem on a local and national level, but they will not, because of a whole lot of reasons which I can't get into.
