    works for me, big expense cutter without much effort. Some will moan the loss of the top cup teams pit crews working in the Xfinity series, not me and it isn't that many races anyway. It could be pretty interesting because teams would have more time to adjust on the car without losing spots.

    I mean honestly the stages are usually short enough that Green flag stops rarely come up I don't see much difference in doing it like breaks, they have had them in the East and West series.

    Losing and gaining spots on pit road is part of the organic nature of the sport tho. Why kill that?

    I'm sure the big money teams won't like it, but smaller teams will not be losing spots every time they pit and they might be able to find locals to pit the car.

    Maybe we can explore racing at tracks that don't have 40 pit stalls

    The truck series did not have pit stops for like the first two seasons, if I'm not mistaken.

    They haven't said it is a done deal, but as long as I am guessing, I would say the Truck series at least. The Xfinity series probably has more opposition

    the trucks maybe,but the teams use the xfinity series to train pit crews,crew chiefs and others,also the drivers learn from them.

    Most of the big teams use cup teams double duty, and they have to fly then up and back to stand alone races. Could this mean more stand alone races for Xfinity and the trucks now that they have got a solution that makes it easier to do so?

    I don't really care one way or the other, but do it the same way every week for every race in a series. Do it for all races, like the Trucks did originally, or don't change anything.

    Well the truck series still doesn't have pit stops in that context...at Eldora. :)

    Wow thanks for posting I didn’t see this yet. I’d so pay for a streaming option to watch old races but in better quality picture wise like this one is. I have something to watch when I get home later!

    If NASCAR plays their cards right, the 2020s could be a decade of resurgence for the sport, while I don't think the sport will ever get back to where it was in the 2000s, at the very least, it could be back to where it was 8 years ago in terms of popularity

    Hmmm, shill alert is starting to flash.

    Sounds like a NASCAR talking point -- were you on the distribution list?

    If Jeff & Junior start parroting this, we'll know one of the NASCAR moles in R-F. :)

    Let me know how being on the Naughty list works out for you next week.

    Don't call me a shill, I have been very critical of the dumb decisions NASCAR has made over the years.

    "decade of resurgence" --

    that is one kick ass marketing slogan going into the "20's" of our lifetime. Be proud.

    NASCAR talks changing cars, schedules, demographics, sponsorship model, venues, rules -- all with content development and distribution contracts looming. Same as it ever was, and inevitable.

    The show for me is between the Green Flag and Victory Lane -- Daytona 500 thru the checkered flag of the season ending race.

    The Social Scene of NASCAR is mostly a cringey side show distraction -- and the overly optimistic industry speak of the usual NASCAR shill mouthpieces and talking heads is all part of the same marketing circus.

    Champions of the "future"...solidifying conspiracy theories I guess.

    TikiLive is like $6.99 and has MAVTV. Or Lucas Oil Racing TV but I think you have to pay the full $99 yearly membership instead of monthly to get MAVTV.
