Default Pros and Cons!

What is the deal with all of the Factory guys. I mean, who really is good enough and deserve what they get and who are the ones who are Factory and never seem to win!

Just looking for some opinions from the masses.

I would say, Kinwald and Francis would be good examples of guys that deserve what they get.

Then you have people that are sponsored and they get beat by Joe Smoe on a regular basis. I dont get it. I just want to know how these no talent having scrubs end up with the Factory Ride.

Sign me up!!

So you tell me.....who are the PROS?......and who are the CONS?

If you never win, you'll never be a factory guy!

Not all sponsors require a victory,.. there is only so many races each year.. you cant win them all.. but the top ten is a different story.. there will always be a joe shmoe who will hve his day in the sun...

Factory guys are suposed to race big events, and the most important thing is to help promote the products they run, nd set a good example for the people they race with..ie new guys...


i doubt any factory guys are getting beat by joe shmoe's... maybe people with some sort of assistence... or someone is lying to you saying they are full ride factory drivers, when they are not...

To me, a factory driver doesn't have to be one of the fastest guys at the track. He just needs to be a knowledgeable guy, especially the companies he represents, goes out of his way to help other drivers, and sets a good example of etiquette at the track.
