I wish NASCAR would get back to its roots

Teams should show up in a city, go to the local car lot and buy 11 ford mustangs, 11 Chevy camaros, 11 Toyota camery, and 11 dodge chargers

Right off the lot, tear thr mufflers off, paint them, tune them, add a better seatbelt and send the guys out on the course

NASCAR has lost it's way, completely.

It has gone from a genuine sport to auto-racing's answer to Professional Wrestling.

Helton should just step down and let Vince McMahon run the league:

- The Lucky Dog

- 35 positions locked into the field

- Provisional positions on the grid along with the 35 guaranteed spots

- Multi-car teams and team orders

- Spec. race cars

- Phoney race-managed cautions for phantom debris

- "the Chase"

- Racing in "attractive markets" opposed to 'great race tracks'

- picking drivers on how media savy they are, not how fast they are.

NASCAR  is more a reality show and less a sport.

When will enough be enough?

Chevy got NASCAR in the early 70s to effectively ban the Ford Boss 429 and Chrysler Hemi big blocks with rule changes and restrictor plates so the boxy Monte Carlo could compete. In the 80s the Ford teams had to run recessed headlight buckets while Chevy teams got to cover theirs flush. Bill France JR. was on the General Motors Board of Directors. You have your multiple championship drivers Waltrip, Labonte, Earnhardt, Gordon, Stewart and Johnson. In their heyday with Chevrolet they would have a top 5 car every week right off the truck no matter the type or length of track like JJ does to this day.

My point? If I was a race car driver l want to drive a Chevy.

I don't get the digital ban. Trust me on this, with analog radios and that many different channels you're going to get bleed over somewhere which is a nightmare. I usually spend practice days at the track resetting radio repeaters and entire channels. Think about it, at least 43 channels for the cars, and track workers need a dozen at the VERY LEAST.

I'm hoping we can afford the digital upgrade for next season. We're getting a new communications building and all new equipment. We've really been doing a hell of a job using old gear so even if it's an analog upgrade we'll be a million miles ahead of where we are now. Only one more race with the old stuff, World Superbikes. Then we get a sledgehammer party!

To kill time, ESPN should call a race between the Jet Dryers and Air Titan.

My uneducated guess is we get 50 laps in before the next rain delay, then finish late tonight.

I did that after Talladega and had Mikey as a not entered the next race. Kinda hurts your standings when you get nothing.

I'm really hoping Truex and Bowyer use this weeks shiatstorm as motivation. Kyle seem to revel in being disliked. They should take lessons from him.

Farking Sweet: Look for a dominant Toyota win today. The truck race had Busch toying with Keselowski Fords. The Nationwide race saw Kyle's Toyota so dominant he led 195 of 200 laps. That was best at a mile + length speedway since Dale Earnhardt led 194 of 200 laps 20 plus years ago. His car was in another league. It looked like it had 50 more horsepower than anyone elses. I figure that another Toyota today got "the call" to dominate and win because remember Mr. France always has the authority to do so.


Are you implying NASCAR might be favoring one manufacturer as a way to apologize for all the MWR fines and bad PR this week?

Good. The more the merrier. That goes for the other guy upthread who has been avoiding these. Rain delay races are always silly on fark.

vegaswench: crotchgrabber: Or, for the lulz, Gordon or Bowyer. With Johnson and Logano tied for 13th. And Truex Jr picking up a couple wins in the Chase races.

I like the way you think.


I'm hoping for some incredible differences in points standings between the chase and what it would be without the chase. We need to have this thing completely obliterated.

PainfulItching: Bowyer is old school. He did what he was told by the guy who signs his paycheck. They just didn't get the code words right. This is not a new development.


Exactly.  You could tell he wasn't thrilled about having to follow orders to spin, and I feel bad for the guy for being vilified.

Hey, my ex-wife was a Jr fan. Actually, she was a #3 fan, became a Jr fan by default. I'm used to being in hostile territory.

I have nothing but respect for you JJ fans.  As a Busch brother fan, I've taken my share of flack, but it's all in good fun.  It's the Gordon fans who've irritated me this week.  Not necessarily any of the ones on Fark, but some of them on twitter and other places have been insufferable this week.
