Must We Fight With HANS Devices on?
So Kevin Harvick and Juan Pablo Montoya got into a little bit of a squabble Sunday at Watkins Glen. I guess Harvick was run off the track by Montoya — or something like that — which led Harvick to speak his mind and say he wanted to kick Montoya’s ass. That’s cool and all, I can certainly roll with ass kickings. One problem though, was what Tony Stewart (who won the race) pegged:
When all was said and done, there were more heated words exchanged than anything else. Even Sundayâ€™s race winner at Watkins Glen International, Tony Stewart, was disappointed.
â€œThey still had their HANS and their helmets on, so it didnâ€™t impress me,â€ he said.
Honestly, if you’re actually going to try and act like tough guys, the least you can do is drop gloves and remove the protective suits. Seriously. Even I can take an Al Iafrate slapshot to the sternum with some chestpads on, you feel me? So next time, if you’re going to act pissed off, drop gloves and let’s really throw down.
