For as long as I have watched NASCAR, the only drivers they ever talk about are the big-name ones. We never hear about where Juan Pablo Montoya is running or what about Jamie McMurray, no one is talking about if he's out at Roush or where he might go.

I believe part of the reason ratings have dropped is because the only guys we hear about are people like Carl Edwards, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Jeff Gordon. Fans get tired of hearing about the same drivers 50 freakin' times a race!

We here on B/R should write about the "little guys" for about two weeks and see how many reads each article gets. It will be an interesting change.

I think that by doing so we will get some very interesting stories. We could write personal facts about them, career stats, ect.

Lets write about the little guys like Robby Gordon for a change.

I know what you're thinking: Bad idea, or "She has lost her mind!"

But if you think about it, we would be helping these guys get sponsors.

So what do you think? Be honest.
