“Over five years in design the NASCAR Car Of Tomorrow was designed from the ground up to be safer, more competitive and cheaper for the race teams. NASCAR has spent extensive time on the drawing board, computer simulations, in the wind tunnel and on the track to design the ideal NASCAR Sprint Cup race car for the future.”
But has it worked? Has it cut the cost of racing for the teams? Has it improved the racing? No to both questions and it is time for NASCAR to look at what it has done to the sport ……. yeah they screwed it up.
Look at how the races have come along, now when the leader gets out front he has “clean air” and he simply pulls away, this is how the C.O.T. Drives, it gives the leader an advantage and this is bad for racing, the other teams and cars can’t catch up so how does this improve racing? Thats just it…….. it don’t. From the start the teams have fought with a tight condition, the car just will not turn in the corners and NASCAR guru’s think this is the magic that NASCAR needs? What are they smoking? It must be good if they really believe this.
NASCAR has been looking at different spoilers to help cut down on the cars flying at the super speedways but they really need to look at getting the cars to race!!!! yeah now don’t get me wrong safety is very important and it should be right at the top of the list, but it should not be the only thing that they are looking at. There are lot’s of things that could be looked at, like 9:1 compression motors, and go back to the stock bodies, they got to get rid of this cookie cutter crap they are running now. NASCAR needs to improve the racing and bring the fans back, in order to do that they will need to listen to what the fans want. What is it that puts butts in the seat? Is it wonderful promotions? No is it good food at the concession stand? Hell no! It is racing! Give the fans racing! That is what they want. How long is it going to take the higher ups at NASCAR to see this? First thing they will have to do is stop looking at the $$$$ they need to look at where that $$$ comes from, the back pockets of the fans! How hard is that to see?
Look at the history of NASCAR…. it started out as a sport full of whiskey runners who would put on a show of racing, then it started catching on, and more and more people started watching it, TV got in the picture, and before long the Networks were televising races live! Just like a football game, and the throngs of fans filled the seat, the sport grew and grew, then along came Brian France….. and the bottom fell out. He started trying to capitalize on the $$$$$ and forgot about putting on a good show of racing, side by side knuckles up racing. Before long the sport was in disarray and ratings were dropping, and NASCAR couldn’t see why…. ok since NASCAr can’t see it for themselves, I will make it easy for them……. GET RID OF Brian France and his whacked way of doing things. And while your throwing him out … box up the C.O.T. And send it with him.
Now that I have vented I feel much better …. NASCAR are you listening???
