It's about the race. I know we don't need another thread, but why does qualifying have to be entertaining? ever? guess i'm just re-irritated by "CHANGE". once upon a time, the Daytona 500 stood on it's own. i'd like to think it still does, although I deplore restrictor plate races. start of a new season. The Great American Race. The Super Bowl of NASCAR. and yet we need a gimmick for qualifying? sorry. couldn't help myself.
