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.
