Hey if the Chinese are paying, go for it I say. Works for Formula 1
Majority of NASCAR fans would riot and revolt if a race was held overseas. I think on this board we sometimes forget the core demographic of NASCAR fans still has a world view like it's 1950. Remember the sh!tshow when Toyota entered...
But hey, let's alienate more core fans for the sake of producing 3 Asian fans in the sacred 18-30 year-old bracket...
So glad you speak for the majority
The majority of the core demographic will be dead before this track is built and hosts a points paying Cup event.
It has already been built. Just built Sept 2017, brand new. 950 million dollars worth. They obviously haven't been reading Racing Forums Deathbed thread tragically.
Where were the pitchforks and torches from 1996-1998?
what are the trade agreements we have with china, will all of the sponsors be able to sell their products in china? what will the cost be to each team?
Where was dipshitt media from 1996-1998?
Better yet, what were you doing from '96-'98?
I watched every lap of every race from 96-98. Don't recall anyone being upset about the exhibition race at Motegi
Are you answering for Chex?
Prolly shoulda' read it. I thought it was a CAD rendering.
Not really. I guess I don't see the point of your question. Chex is right IMO. Didn't seem to bother anyone that they ran a race in Japan in those years
The point was Chex likely wasn't watching NASCAR in 1996.
the racing in china will be no better then the racing here. some big money team will hit the set up and drive away from the rest.
For what it's worth, NASCAR decided three years in Japan was enough, and stopped going. Keep in mind this was during the sport's peak. Obviously they thought the return on investment wasn't good enough to justify it. I certainly don't see how that would be any different today. This trip to China is probably more about other business ventures IMO
Will there be stages and fake ass cautions that only the Chinese will be able to recognize?
10,000 schoolchildren in sailor suits will wave yellow flags from the infield.
I don't seem to recall anyone storming the Daytona offices with torches and pitchforks during the '90s exhibition races in Japan. Just me, I guess.
Well, heck, if that's the goal, run a race in North Korea. They really know how to organize a fan display!
I don't get the significance of your question. Are you saying fans would have protested the Japanese races if the media had publicized them? I remember watching them on TV, so I don't think that's your point.
Many short stages .... the Chinese eat often
You make me wonder if the manufacturers have a hand in this, maybe trying to increase their market share with an audience who may not realize that what wins on 星期日 is not what they're buying on 星期.
And if you win the first two stages you get an egg roll and wonton soup at the caution.
No idea, but thats hardly relevant.
Second hand viewing for sure. But Ive watched decades of seasons and races online long before my own time.
I thought it was with 3 you get egg roll
I watched reruns of the Three Stooges. Same thing, I guess. Watched I Love Lucy too.
Gives me the anticipatory piss shivers just thinking about it.
Today’s media gives people that weren’t around at the time of the events the false sense of being there.
Okay, but I don't see what that response has to do with COW's previous post noting a lack of rioting in the streets in the '90s. For what it's worth, I WAS watching at that time.
I’ve never seen riots in the streets over NASCAR.
Usually the fan base simply declines.
I can hear him.
I'm a Saints fan, @AndyMarquisLive is a Jags fan. When the Saints played the Dolphins 11 day's ago in London It looked like they had a sellout crowd. It doesn't bother me that they play over there every so often.
Yes, but you're an adult.
I really don’t know if I’d want to se NASCAR race at this track but I’d be down to see F1 or Indy Car race there, pretty races track it looks to be. I’m not opposed to a international points paying race Id be up for Mexico, Montreal, the Edmonton Airport that Indy ran at and for the hell of it Belgium. If fans won’t attend races here ...aw screw it let’s try overseas
I think the bigger problem was that NASCAR didn't have a bigger plan in mind. Now we've seen them run in Canada and Mexico in Busch/Truck recently but they also started up national series there around the same time.
