If you are a member of the NASCAR Fan Council check your inbox. Take the survey before they remove it and let your voice know about what you witnessed this past weekend. If you liked it, fine. If you didn't speak up.

Don't forget..... If you miss the deadline for the survey you can still log in any time you want and make your thoughts known.

I forgot to tell you all that I FINALLY got my acceptance email while the board was down! My "I love Brian" rant must've worked :biggrin:

Haven't received this week's survey just yet though.

I used those same words, but also used many other words that are not allowed on this forum :biggrin:

I just told them this crap better not make it to the cup series or my wife will be happy that I have free time on Sundays. I also gave them hell for the caution clock! I said I feel like I'm wasting my time and I'd never pay to go see that crap. If I wanted to see proper heats and main I'd go to my local dirt track.

I'm convinced they already have a caution clock in the cup series. It is just set a 60 mins instead of 20. That or there is a half time caution that they have instituted.
Or, bringing softer tires that degrade more leads to more wrecks.

More tire wear=more blown tires=more real cautions=no caution clock. What's so hard to understand?

The 2nd half of each race has certainly played out like that, but the first half of each race hasn't quite seen the cautions for blown tires, wrecks, etc.
I don't want the caution clock at all, but I have certainly noticed a trend that they seem to throw a caution once an hour or just before the halfway mark. Maybe once the clock hits zero they look for any excuse to throw the caution instead of immediately throwing one.

Either way, the softer tires are making the racing great. I can't tell if the racing is better because of the softer tire, or the lower downforce, or a combination of the two. Right now I'm leaning toward the softer tire that is giving us better racing.

I like the *idea* of heat races and a main for some tracks. But it won't work unless the heats have a substantial reward, such as making the main or failing to make it. And the charter system is gonna preclude doing that, I suspect.

Right, kind of hard to have eliminations when you have teams that are guaranteed to start the race, unless its just for the four open spots.

I hate the idea.

When you get to the big time, you leave heat racing behind. Besides, the nonsense going on in the B isn't heat racing. Cars have gone home ineligible to run a heat. It's an embarrassment.

Oh I completely agree, heat racing needs to stay at the local short track and not come to NASCAR's top three series , it does not belong there.

I told them to call me if they want to. I'll give them an ear full.

I'll get my call Friday morning between 10:30 and 11:30 AM. I'm practicing my speech. :D
How long did it take for them to let you know?, meaning when did you your invite to when you got confirmation?

Got my survey today about the race. Let them have it with both barrels about the confusion and lousy officiating.

However, I did offer praise about the tire fall off and the ability to pass.

Verizon messed up my email a couple of months ago so I went elsewhere. Oh my, I have neglected to forward my new Email to Nascar. Oh well, I didn't see any advantage to being a fan council member anyway

I agree , I think it's quite obvious they are going to do what they are going to do .
