Things I hate about Nascar

Teams

"The Chase"

Cookie Cutter cars

Cookie Cutter tracks

aerodynamics to the max on the cars

Lucky Dog

Not racing back to the flag during a caution

restrict plates

shutting down tracks like North Wilkesboro for places like Kansas and Chicago

they have ruined the "racing" part of racing. You can watch the first and last 10 mins of a race and get all the action, the rest is for curing insomnia

I agree with the punishment. Truex got in specifically because his teammate cheated so he should be out.

 

I can see Jeff Gordon's point about Bowyer. Was Gordon mathematically in the chase before the wreck? If so I think he should be included in the chase. Maybe make it a 13 car chase as not to punish Logano

Mostly agree. Some of these new tracks are half empty, like Vegas and California. Of course Nascar doesn't care because of the TV revenue which i think was just extended. The tracks could be empty for all they care.

 

I don't mind restrictor plate racing when they have it set up right and I like the chase.

I agree.  I don't think they should take Logono out though.  This years chase should be 13 cars because of the cheating and manipulating the field.  Boyer and Gorden do have some bad blood and this whole nonsense shouln't be allowed.

Teammates were pitting under green so as to help Logano gain spots, then wrecking to help Truex.

Gordon and Newman were knocked out and Truex, Logano were in.

To me, things like the "chase" were invented to help put excitement back in the sport. Gimmicks will last only so long.

I don't mind having some sort of championship, but that is all Nascar can talk about now. The racing is dull, cars going 20-30 mph too fast which does not allow racing any longer. Get the splitters out from under the front end, loosen em up, and then see who can drive and who cannot.

I love a just a few weeks ago the show nascar hub did a special on cheating. They gave praise to somkey yunik and junior johnson. Yet when someone does it today they become public enemy #1. I know they cheated in different ways but still you get my point. I think think the bigger problem with the new format is the point system. I feel that the way things are now you are punished more for a bad finish..ie wreck, blown engine than you are for a win or doing well. I also think if the races were all cut by 100 miles it would make for more aggresive racing. Also the emphasis on areo has gone overboard. Go on youtube and watch some races from the 70's and 80's. The drivers actually drive and you see them sawing the wheel In the turns, today its too ...I dont wanna say easy because its not but its more smooth.

And just think about doing it without power steering!!

I remember when Bobby Allison was the first to use power steering in his car. Talk about a brutal afternoon at Dover. 5 hour race in 140 degree car and your arms are cramping because of the constant pressure and pull of the steering wheel.

Would not hurt to change the engines also and go with like a 300CI engine. That would slow them down a bit, maybe help lose the plates on big tracks, etc.

I hope Kenseth can get one more championship, but I don't think it'll be this year. He just hasn't been consistent enough. He had the most wins, but was like sixth in points before the reset, that poo won't cut it in the Chase.

So, now NASCAR is investigating Joey Logano because the radio transmissions made public indicate another Ford team ordered their driver to slow down and allow Logano to pass, securing him the 22nd pot in the race and a spot in the Chase.

 

This crap is so funny, WWE couldn't even write this script.

Doesn't JJ have a history of running like crap after securing a spot in the Chase? And they've admitted to "working on some set-ups and engineering" in an effort to get everything in order for the Chase.
