Hasn't won a race in any series in an odd-numbered year since 2005. Don't see it changing.

Then if NASCAR isn't a sport, golf is less of a sport than NASCAR.

Didn't say the drivers weren't athletes- they are. But the NASCAR event itself is not sport.

No other sport changes its rules from one week to the next.

No other sport changes its rules to allow for a substandard product having a better chance of keeping up.

No other sport dictates one type of competitor (car) can do one thing but another competitor (car) cannot.

NASCAR doesn't change the rules weekly but several times a year. NFL does as well.

Profit sharing and luxury tax in MLB and NFL and probably other sports

I know you said week to week, and NASCAR has pretty much done that the last few years, but it's a sport based on technology and technology is constantly changing.


MLB changes
instant replay rule
changing playoff system by adding new divisions (wild card)
lowering the height of the mound

NFL changes their rules too much too to make the sport safer and to make it seem as if they are on the moral high ground.

MLB and NFL must not be a sport either due to too many rule changes.


NASCAR has to have rule changes to keep teams competitive, but the points changes and chase changes are crap. That's when it all started to go downhill. That and a lack of true individuality between racers and tracks. But constant rule changes doesn't make it not a sport.

NFL changed rules in midstream last year for fines for hits. They also increased fines during the playoffs for uniform violations.

They instituted a salary cap so teams in smaller markets could keep up with the superior teams in bigger markets.

They design special rules to protect the QB over the other competitors. They do it because he is the most marketable player on the team and losing QB's hurts the league.

I don't always agree with NASCAR's rule changes, but understand why many of them are implemented. The technology on these things changes on a regular basis. They have to walk a fine line between competitive and safe. That means they change the rules whenever the need arises. For example, the restrictor plates at Daytona were changed because they found out that the newly paved track allowed the cars to travel at an unsafe speed. So they had to slow them down.
