It didn't count, but the dollars sure do. A million dollars doesn't seem like much in a sports climate in which the Major League Baseball minimum for 2011 is $414,500. But in the secretive independent contractor relationship of driver to team owner, there is no true measure to ever really know what a man is worth, or is willing to accept for his talent or willingness to risk his life every weekend. At least not for the public to view.And for Sprint Cup drivers/fathers like Carl Edwards and Matt Kenseth, every dollar helps when considering rash-free bottoms and tuition. Considering that both drive for Roush Fenway Racing, that might be a pinhole into Roush Fenway's contract negotiating process. Have a comment? Send to siwriters@simail.com.
