Can we please stop disrespecting the level of competition in the stock classes in this country?

Syndrome,

I rarely read anything negative about the stock level talent in this country. I believe we *may* be world leaders at stock (not a put down) but we need to catch up and better develop the modified level (my opinion, but I am not putting anyone down). That is were most comments come from.

I think it's great that all the overseas drivers are there. Makes for a better race for sure. I think it's really good to follow the ETS series also.
