    7.5 I watched more racing this year than I watched the past 5, I thought the racing was much better.

    Me too. 9.5

    If the Penske and Hendrick guys had found their competitive speed earlier in the year, I'd be rating 2018 a perfect 10. As it was, with the 4 and 18 having a leg up for much of the year, it still was a fantastic year of skill-based low downforce racing... as good as Nascar's on-track product has ever been. I'm disappointed that Nascar has decided to change completely their philosophy of low downforce/high power racing into something the exact opposite..:(

    I think I can go a 7.25 as I really enjoyed some of the races this year.

    8 overall but the last half of the year, other than the points system, reminded me of the early 2000s heyday

  12. 9 first half of the year wasn’t that good, but it really picked the 2nd half of the year.

    6 sounds like a good number, not really passing, not quite failing.
    Enjoyed Daytona, but the rest of the spring races just sucked, with talladega and martinsville being the absolute worst races I’ve ever seen at those tracks. After Sonoma, it improved a bit, Chicago had one of their better races, Watkins Glenn, Bristol, Indy, Kansas, and martinsville were good races.

    8. Racing has been just as good as it has been, fans like to whine & casuals don't care about auto racing anymore.

    7. Great racing but god there was hardly any drama between the drivers. Need something to spice it up a bit

    I’ll go with 8. There were a lot of great races this year, mixed in with a few stinkers of course.

    7, missing something...maybe we need a little less of the road race gentleman approach and some more hard knock racing.

    8.627 better than I expected. Three dominant cars, then the underdog won it all.

    wins apiece by the winningest drivers. Honestly, great season. Wish I could have watched more of it, especially in the second-half of the season. Had a lot going on.

    9 Tremendous racing, great fun. Would have been a 10 had Ford not been thrown the bone, but what the hell. Damn near beat the sons of bitches anyway. Can't wait for next year and a bigger spoiler for Rodney. He must be licking his chops.

    6. The stages suck from my perspective. I only watched about 20 races and nothing after Vegas.

    I’ve taken some time to mull it over. I give it an 8. Enjoyed the Big 3 battle the early part and middle of the year while the 22 and 9 caught up to those guys at the end. I’m nervous for next year and the aero package but I was entertained this past year. It was cool to see KDB and Harvick have career years, they were the best all year. It was nice to see Chase finally take that next step of being the lead HMS and Chevy driver.

    7.5 Not the worst, but not greatest either. Needs more rubbin' and more rivalries. On to 2019 and new package!
