Any Solutions To NASCAR?

Posted on: March 7, 2008 9:25 am

I'm sure this will get a variety of responses, if people read it but I welcome your thoughts. In light of NASCAR's penalty to Carl Edwards for not failing post race inspection but something looking "amiss" on the car, what would do?

If you don't like NASCAR please don't respond with the "get rid of it" and things like that. I am just curious as to what people might come up with. Personally I think they should open things up a little more as I do not care for a glorified IROC series. The sport was built on who could get away with the most and breaking the law anyway so I say enough of all this politically correct BS and get back to racing...bluejay

Any Solutions To NASCAR?

Fitz - Thanks for the comment. What people need to remember is that's essentially what put NASCAR on the map in 1979. The fight between Cale Yarborough & Bobby Allsion after Donnie Allsion and Cale had tangled on the backstrecth and came to rest on the infield of turn 3 on the last lap of  the Daytona 500. After that ESPN (in the early days) had the best coverage and great announcers so the popularity grew. I can still hear Bob Jenkins calling a race along with Benny Parsons and Ned Jarrett. Then NASCAR got greedy and sold out to the highest bidder. I don't blame them for trying to make a buck but the quality has gone down hill ever since, IMO...bluejay

I fully agree Bee-Jay. They need to get back to thier roots........"Old School" racin'. Its getting out of hand,a nd it ain't as exciting as it used to be. How do you think the ratings would go if every week we got to see two drivers scrum after a wreck, and helmet throwing etc.... They would skyrocket and the sponsors would love it. Robert yates and some other teams having problems finding a sponsor would be a thing of the past. Bangin' and Bashin' baby.................
