Last weeks 12 in 12 interview was with Jimmie Johnson and when asked the same question he said the best to learn from was Mark Martin and he too said stay away from Kevin Conway. Jimmie said when you asked me this question earlier in the season I said San Hornish Jr, but now I would say Conway.
Is anyone really surprised by this? I don't know a thing about Kevin Conway as a person...he may be great. But as a driver, he has done nothing to warrant being in Sprint Cup racing or Nationwide racing for that matter. He is good with sponsors and that has bought him rides. I'm not sure how many people here know this but Kevin bought a ride with Joe Gibbs Racing in the (then) Busch Series by brining Z-Line Designs to the team. Z-Line is still there today.However Kevin did not perform at all for them. I don't dislike the guy, he never has messed another driver's race up but in all honesty...he's awful. Everyone knows he shouldn't be out there.
JG should have said Dale Jr. That guy only has a ride because of his name. The reality of NASCAR is that the rich teams like convicted felon Rick Hendrick's are at the top because they have tons of cash to throw around and are pretty much buy races. Put Robby in a Hendrick car and he's in the Chase. Put Jeff Gordon in Robby's equipment and he's fighting to stay in the top 35.
