The reason most these kids get that good is not from exploiting talent but from exploiting their rich parents. A lot of talented racers never will be seen due to cost restrictions. Most the females racers have a man that races or some other tie to the sport. Our wives could probably compete if someone was willing to sponsor them and take the time dumping cash in

Money is definitely the issue. I don't think I'd fast enough to be competitive with the big boys, but if I had the wallet they did, I'd try my ass off. The money per weekend it takes to race is astronomical, but I can't be mad at these kids for having the opportunity.
