Jeff Gordon just won the first ever group qualifying session for the Daytona 500. After which a majority of the other drivers were very angry with the All except for 2nd place, Jimmie Johnson. No doubt because who would complain about 2nd place in a new format? Gordon had said, ?"This year, with this qualifying format, the driver finally gets to play a role,".
Johnson dad also said just after his lap, "It was good enough for second. "Very interesting qualifying session to say the least."
Now even though the two top guys were pleased with their times, here's what others had to say via TwitterDenny Hamlin"Mayhem. There's no other word to describe it,"Tony Stewart"Today use to be about showcasing the hard work from the teams over the winter. Now it a complete embarrassment for our series."Kenny Wallace"I will say "This is eXciting" maybe craZy or silly or stupid BUT it is a SHOW"Tony Stewart replied to Wallace with this:
"that's not a show, it's a joke and you know it"Brad Keselowski"Today is one of those days where it Doesn't matter what I think."
I agree with the drivers. This format just doesn't work now. It seems like a stretch for more ratings. Though I highly doubt that will work.
