      so you can buy a spot with money and exposure, no skill needed? I have been going about it all wrong, all the driving schools, track time, car building, suspension dialing and all I had to do was get on TV and sell t-shirts? I feel stupid

      Stock sized back seat was compromised with the addition of the tubs but the cage didn't help any. He is either going to run one bucket in the middle or a small contoured bench.
