Didnt seem like Todd had much for Carl in round 7 til he blew a tire. Todd's comment about 'better drivers' is total crap... IMO, yeah TORC has more of the seasoned drivers than LOORS but that doesnt mean that the racing in TORC is any better than LOORS or vice versa... The majority of fans flock to this sport for the competition and action, most newcomers (fans) would say Todd who? lol
How many times has Carl kept the lead and won the race with a blown tire? I've never seen Carl lose a tire and not still be a contender. So I think beating Carl, tire or no tire is still worth being excited about.
Yeah, I remember a few times where Carl won with a flat, but from what I remember, he normally had a pretty good lead. I think its great that the LeDucs came out and won. I was hoping to hear them be a little more humble and not blast the series, Im sure they were welcomed and treated well... they even got to keep all the decals on their trucks...
I dont think Todd said anything about being treated bad or that he didn't like the Lucas series. He pretty much said Hey I beat your top guy and in the Torc series I have to fight to be in the top three. Sure it is a little bit of a poke at Carl trying to lure him to a Torc race saying hey come defend yourself. If you want to be the man you have to beat the man. I think Todd would like people to know that he went out to Lucas and beat Carl. People who follow Torc in the midwest may not know that he beat Carl. Nothing was said about how they feel about the Lucas series. Yes he said that Torc has a deeper field of better drivers but with him going out and beating every one he may have some ground to stand on.
You might be analyzing it a little too much.... I think it was more of a racer's friendly jab at Carl, and has nothing against LOORS.
If he would have just talked about beating Carl and not touch on the "Who has better drivers" subject, there wouldnt be much to discuss on the subject.
