Get rid of the moronically asinine play Bull Shite, would improve it the most.

The France boy's greed is killing it quickly.

Don't like that calendar.  There are some gaps of 5 or 6 days between races.  Can't they fill those?

 

NASCAR clearly haven't figured out that more doesn't mean better.

Mid week, single practice mid afternoon, a couple of short heats to set the grid and a single tank sprint race, no tire changes with the tires lasting until about 10 laps to go.  That would be racing.

No 'public service' penalties for shoving someone after a race....bring back the old Red Bull team (2x winner in the past) in Scott Speed footsteps?

Up until the early 1970s, NASCAR's top division ran 40-50+ races a season, often running a couple of short tracks during the week.

But I think they got full stands for those races so it was good business to proliferate and get the reward from the ticket box.  Things are different today in many ways and not just for NASCAR.

Up to 1971, there were four large regional sanctioning bodies: ARCA, IMCA, NASCAR, USAC all running dirt tracks while all but IMCA ran road course races also at one time or another.

 

Besides that there were other local racing organizations and just plain outlaw stock car races.

 

Bobby Allison won 7 short track NASCAR races in Chevy, real Chevy not a Chevy engine in a Ford based chassis, before he got ride with a major team.

They did it to prevent the situation where the championship has been decided before the last race or last couple races and therefore there is less tension and sometimes less tv viewership.  They want to make sure that the last race to really means  something every year not just some years.  It is the same reason that Indycar has tried to use a double-points final race and that F1 has talked about it in the past too.  I don't think it is an awful idea (nor a great idea either), but it goes so much against a century of global motorsport tradition that it is hard to accept.  Most people don't like double-points final races either, but that one doesn't mess with tradition as much and gets accepted a little better it seams

Unless the calendar has some 8 road circuits, it doesn't really feel like a "never seen it before" thing.

no because its appealing too the casual fanbase who have a short attention span. Nascar i bet lost a lot fans when the playoff formula was introduced as its one big GIMMICK just like the pretend fake caution flags for an imaginary piece of debris to cause "drama, excitement" all for "faux" entertainment reasons.

 

Its more interesting watching older races where they dont stop/finish every 50 laps then go too a stupid stage 2-3 too do the rest of 500 laps for that race zzzzzzzzz 

 

That would be like at Le Mans stopping and restarting the race every hour just too please the casual fans in the name of entertainment.

Nascar is natural racing. And racing of drivers better say racers, not racing of cars. Maybe a couple of fake flags over and there. But No Stewards. No DRS, Push2Pass, different tire compounds and that's GIMMICKS my friend.

 

And I love 4 best drivers going into final race to decide who is the Champion :wave:

To be fair, I think the best four drivers usually end up in the 'final four' don't they? It adds an element of unpredictability though, so someone like Almirola a couple of years ago for example, or famously Ryan Newman back in what, 2014, manage to sneak through and in Newman's case, almost win the championship. I used to hate, hate, hate the play-off system but a guaranteed four way title showdown is good - just wish that final race came at a more exciting circuit than Phoenix or (in the past) Homestead.

I became very disillusioned when Ryan Newman didn't win that first championship.

 

It's a silly way of deciding a champion but NASCAR are entitled to ru(i)n their series however they want. The drivers are still racing hard for individual race wins so at the worst I don't think fans are short-changed that much.

The odds of the best 4 are substantially improved with the stages and playoff points, which carry over until the finale. Before that you had jokes like Gordon racing for the 2015 title instead of Logano, or Johnson in 2016 with the 9th overall points. Agree ISM is a dubious venue at best. Typically one person hits the setup and it's a snoozer.

The analogy I make annually is what if the WDC was decided by a single result, potentially affected by safety cars or a single pit stop and LeClerc, Bottas, or Gasly went into the books as this year's champion.

I really want Hamlin to take a title, and if this isn’t his year I don’t think it ever will be.

But it’s basically Groundhog Day on that one, 2019 was virtually identical wasn’t it. And he didn’t do much in the finale.

This is what friend told me when I asked him

 

 

I think it scared him when Dale Earnhardt Jr. had that collision because he had a concussion and paused for a while. Plus Edwards ’wife is a doctor so I believe she made him think about retirement too.

Edwards has been one of the highest paid drivers at NASCAR for years, probably earning enough to never have to think about finances in his life again.
