As the poll asks.
Short of a 'time machine' I don't know of any single or small collection of ideas that could do the trick. Certainly nothing that could be done to right this ship in short order. Set its course back to January 21, 2004 and erase about every change from there. That would be a great start.
Oh, and all of your ideas look good.
None of the above.
Honestly, the chances are, none of the above actually happens.
If all of the above happened, TV ratings and attendance would go up IMO.
I think just about any true shakeup in the sport would cause a rise in the ratings. Sustainability. That's the key. Would any of those changes actually keep people watching?
I became an avid fan by actually getting to a track to see a race for the first time. Watching it on television is okay but I don't think I ever would have remained a fan all these years without actually attending races. Now that I am no longer attending these races, I find my interest in the sport becoming less. The final straw was when they removed my seats @ Martinsville creating a 'party zone' in lieu of the best seats in the venue. Their overpriced, overhyped 'party zone' will prove to be a failed venture as many of their thinking outside of the box ideas become. At this point, I don't know what it would take to get me back to the track again.
How about they just stop screwing with stuff every 6 months? They cant go back in time but they can stop with the acts of desperation.
I voted season long point system. I also think Nascar should quit trying for excitement throughout the race BUT they should have the cameras pointed at where the excitement is at any given time and NOT try to make it all about the top 5.
IMO the broadcast hurts Nascar more than anything.
NASCAR’s challenge is to produce a product that the current fans can get behind but also attract a newer and younger fan. I have an idea of what some of us older fans would like but IDK what a 15-20-25 year old wants to see.
Am 22, want the old points system back. I don't view Logano as a true champion like I do Truex.
Some more short/road tracks would also be nice, show off the technical skills of these drivers. Move on to Gen 7 already and up the HP at most tracks again. Adding a European, probably German manufacturer like Volkswagen, Audi or BMW would be cool, but I'd settle for Nissan. Send the Waltrips and Jeff Burton to the ranch and bring Bobby Labonte and Jamie Mac to the booth. Scrap the garbage qualifying but keep the stages, they produce intense racing.
Season long points battle combined with removing this high drag package would be a good start. Get rid of the aero crap. Let them build fast cars and find advantages. Stop trying to manufacture parity, if they can't hang they can't hang.
