The one thing that apparently is a major point of contention after the Harvick/Logano dustup is Joey Logano's comment about DeLana Harvick wearing a firesuit at the track. After he felt he was wronged by Kevin Harvick, Logano brought Mrs. Harvick's race attire into the fray with a single, unforgettable zinger concerning the pecking order in the Harvick household.
I have long thought it was silly of DeLana to wear a firesuit at the track. She is not a competitor. She may be doing some 'busy' work on top of the pit box, but she is not on the team. It's almost as cute as a high school cheerleader's mother wearing a cheerleading outfit to the games to support her daughter. Nothing more than an embarrassing distraction yelling, "Look at me!"
As long as I'm in this deep, I might as well ask, "Why are wives, girlfriends, and family members even allowed to come to work with the drivers?" Are there any other jobs where you can bring a one-night-stand to work with you the next day? Who was the first driver to bring his wife into the pits during a race?
Please don't take this as chauvinistic, I would feel the same way if Danica Patrick's husband wore a firesuit around the pits. Or, if Joey Logano's father, Tom, (remember Al Bundy's favorite TV show, 'Psycho Dad'?) wore a team uni while stalking the pits.
