Ya know I've been rhuminating on this all day... I just don't think I can stomach NASCAR anymore. JAC said it best... its like they are running the sport with a focus group of soccer moms.
Listen clearly... Safety is not the number one consern you morons. Competition is. If saftey is the most important thing... what the hell are we doing racing in the first place? The danger is part of the appeal.
NASCAR got where it is by being a spectacle. It was the risk... the unknown... it was the idea that anything could happen.
Now its a sport that is choking to death on its own growth. Its just like anything else... the more people you try to appeal to... the more bland your product has to be.
Piss on it.
