This is not a who should come back list, or an ALL-STARS list, or a list of best all round racers, or any thing else except CBS's Media take on which teams were the "Most Favorite" of "All Time".
What criteria did they use? Most requests for publicity/media opps with the team would be my #1 guess, closely followed by production's own biases, and maybe remembering feedback from the casuals at the time.
I loved many of the teams on here, some I would replace with others.
But get real...Karlyn as a "most favorite" when she was universally hated and behaved appallingly during that season? Questioning Jordan when ratings and even our traffic went thru the roof?
This is nothing but one more bit of TAR publicity...and that's okay. We need all the help we can get. But stick with the "Most Favorite" designation only and you will see better why some of these were picked.
But yeah. .maybe WE would have chosen some others. But no one asked the real fans for input right?
