Ya gotta wanna
- May 19, 2013
I thought the racing on a whole was much better the last 2 years. Why change what is working? It makes zero sense to why NASCAR would want to do this, it's just going to push fans away rather than attract them.The joke of it all is that for me personally, the racing hasn’t been bad at all the last few years. I’ve found it to be pretty exciting actually
Unfortunately I'm not sure where it will come from. The media and Sirius have been begging for it since May, the drivers are too afraid to stick their necks out aside from maybe Brad, and the owners only care about how much money they're gonna be spending. We're all hostages to NASCAR's bull**** and it's getting real old.The backlash will be interesting, if true.
I hope that the greater racing community feels the same way as most of the fans here do. It would be really depressing to think that a majority of race fans would want to see some kind of dumbed down show that removed much of the talent and skill we see on display each week.
Yeah he's "Senior Manager of Innovation Communications" . Not the first NASCAR employee to be a knob on social media and probably not the last.I was wondering who that guy was. Does he actually work for them? Seems like a true clown. I noticed nobody really responds to him. I'm new to Reddit so I don't know if there's some background there.
I think Natural, is more preferred or organic.I seem to remember a few years ago that the buzz was Nascar would be moving to timed events and instead of that stage racing was implemented. Maybe Nascar is floating the idea of plate type racing for all races and will only implement the silliness at some of the events so we will believe that we have dodged a bullet and will still have some tracks with what is generally accepted as real racing.
The original rumor a while back was that all cookie cutters would get the ASR for a total of 14 races not including Daytona and Tally.I seem to remember a few years ago that the buzz was Nascar would be moving to timed events and instead of that stage racing was implemented.

that makes more sense than this latest tale. I would think the track owners would have some say yes or no also. With the 1.5's being similar I would think Nascar would concentrate on those first.The original rumor a while back was that all cookie cutters would get the ASR for a total of 14 races not including Daytona and Tally.
I'm thinking, Vegas x2, Texas x 2, Kansas x2, Charlotte x1, Pocono x2, Michigan x2, Chicago x1, Kentucky x1, Indy x1, which would be 14 races. If you add Auto Club and Atlanta that would be 16 races. This leaves every track a mile or less without plates.
I didnt see a mini Daytona or Dega race at Charlotte. I saw great racing, passes for the lead and cars with Throttle response.Can’t wait to see how the apologists on here will spin this as good. It’s not.....I don’t want mini Daytona and Dega races each week. It’s not racing, it’s a reality show based bastardized form of racing if you can call it racing. If this is in fact 100% true, I’ll be rooting for it to fail big time while taking my twice a year attending races money to Indy Car. What a load of crap this is, who the hell in NASCAR thinks this package is a good idea....like who gets paid to actually think this crap up? “I know what will save this sport and take it into the next 50 years....Restrictor Plate Roval Racing!!!!”
Since May, I've been posting my opposition to this dumbed down "entertainment product" that is being promoted by Nascar as the next big thing. I am not entertained by cars droning around WFO, never lifting, never braking, never testing car control skills. I am *always* entertained by top drivers in a stern test of skill... and the harder it is, the better I like it. The current rules generally produce terrific racing, and flushing that away in search of "casual fan entertainment" would be a travesty.
