No it's not. The genius behind the wheel, Brian France has given up on the idea of racing as a sport and more entertainment. In the boom of the 90's went Nascar went from the hardcore fan base to the general public, all kinds of stupid things were introduced to make the "Show" more entertaining Also big money started ruling Nascar.

So now that the Nascar fad is over with, you have long time fans who are sick of,

All the new 1.5mile cookie cutter tracks while abandoning some of the great short tracks.
Spec cars
Top 35 rule
The biggest blunder of them all,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, the Chase.

So there are a LOT of old fans that couldn't give a rats hind end about Nascar.


You nailed pretty well there, there is talk of getting rid of the top 35 rule next year

Gotta agree with the Top 35 and "The Chase", just stupid. More short tracks and road courses would be great, Dad and I have gone to Toad America last three years for the Nationwide races and it's been a great event to go see............even if we sit near people who have had more booze to drink than my 200 did on the drive there, or any of the Nationwide cars running there :P

Hmm... maybe the beginning of the end for NASCAR, or maybe they're injecting some WWE style drama to generate some fresh interest.

I don't normally weigh in on the "What's wrong with NASCAR" debate, but for the love of Moses take one of the dates off Fontana to spare everyone that boring 3 hours of TV and re-open North Wilkesboro. "Everyone" (being the NASCAR elite) claim NWS has no "modern amenities". GOOD! I don't need a sky-box, falafle and champagne, I want to see people beating the heck out of their cars while enjoying a hotdog and fries. Guess that's why the local short track around here always draws a good crowd.

NASCAR has become so homogenized and plain looking that it holds no interest for me.

I say combine NASCAR and LollaPaLooza, with the cars, bands and audience all on the track at the same time.
Kind of like everyday city driving.

The France family controls everything. Get rid of the mulitple team owners.One car one owner one driver. You just can not compete against those teams . You have a field of 42 cars how many of them really have a chance agains the mulitple car teams?How many do they ever talk about duing a race? They only talk about the mulitple team owners most of the time.The rest of the cars are very seldom if at all talked about.
