    Time to look at playoff format?

    I'll say it again. I hate the whole system and would dump it in a heartbeat, but since that is not going to happen, just increase the number of points for a win and then take the top 16 on points. Make the number enough to give wins REAL value, but not enough to automatically vault the fluke...

    I’ve been to a lot of races, and I have NEVER seen a sea of fans wearing KB merch. A respectable amount? Sure, but a fraction of the amount of whoever is the most popular at the time. The thing is, most drivers have a percentage of fans and a much larger percentage that could care less about...

    Go ahead and think that if you want, but it’s just the opposite. Kyle’s fan base is a vocal MINORITY, and much of that is all the kids that love M&M’s. Among the NASCR fans that I interact with, he is the most hated driver by. WIDE margin. The initials KFB didn’t happen.

    Can (and Should) NASCAR's Culture Of Cheating Change?

    The Cup Series is a big boy game. Put on your pants and get to work. If Brad or anyone else doesn’t like it, go field a team in Spec Miata. The owners that pushed for all this spec crap are the first ones to break the rules, so I just tune them out. I have yet to see a sport where somebody...

    You have just accurately described the plot of 50% of all their shows. The other 50% are split between woman playing amateur detective and woman somehow meets the prince or king of some tiny European country and they fall in love despite differences in culture and the objections of the royal...

    I think part of the attraction to Chase is that is kind of the anti-version of what many other drivers are. That doesn't mean he is right and they are wrong, just that his "brand" appeals to certain people more than maybe some of the others do. If you want my honest opinion of the drivers...

    They are disliked by enough people that they need not ever worry about being elected MPD. What more do you want me to say?

    I listen in my office at work, I listen in the car, I listen out in the shop working, I listen when I'm mowing the grass or pulling the weeds, or whatever. Sometimes sitting on the couch with the dogs while my wife watches the Hallmark Channel......... I just got done listening to part one of...

    Well, five of those guys are considered unlikable by a LARGE block of fans, and Truex and Larson don't have much more personality than Chase does. Blaney could possibly be the MPD, but he hasn't had the on track stats to really break through.

    True, if his name was Clyde Smith, he probably wouldn't have half as many fans, but you don't get to choose who your parents are. You can't knock a guy because of the accident of birth. At least he has chosen to try to live up to the example set by his dad in the sport and not act like a...

    Well, some of us are quite content to pull for a driver that shows up, does his job, keeps his mouth shut, goes home, minds his own business and doesn't actively court attention or adulation. That probably explains why some of my all time favorite drivers were guys like Johnny Rutherford, Rick...

    Well, I can't speak for the rest of the Elliott fans, I really don't come into contact with many. As for me, I've never thought the media was unfair, but as much as the haters seem to think the media fawns over him, he seems to get ignored sometimes. I've lost count of how many times he has...

    Hate is probably too strong a word, but they never go out of the way to give him credit for anything. Whenever something good happens to him, they usually find a reason for it other than him being a pretty damn good race car driver. After his 2020 Phoenix championship victory, they did just...

    Is that because you think they are bad people, or you just don’t like their politics?

    It can if they are all properly funded. I don’t think it matters to them how many cars they run as long as the money is there.

    Hamlin and Busch Diqualified?

    And they will make damn sure we don’t know jack, because they treat every situation like this as if it were a military secret. You want to make two totally different penalties for two very similar infractions, then tell us and SHOW us why. Nascar THRIVES on secrecy, vagary, circular logic and...
