But, what is the fasination of wanting the open wheel drivers to enter NASCAR? Has anyone paid any attention to what Dario Franchitti, Sam Hornish Jr., hell even Casey Mears has done with top 20 teams? Sam Hornish Jr. is 4 points from taking a top 10 team to a go or go home ride in just five races. Dario has to qualify on time now, Casey is knocking on the door at 33rd place in the standings.. Driving for Rick Hendrick no less! For God's sake Juan Pablo (the next coming of Earnhardt.. YEAH RIGHT!!!) hovers around 20th place constantly. Now almost everyone talks of wanting more road courses, there is a series that will give you all the road racing you can stomach, keep it out of our NASCAR please.. Buy some batteries for your remote and change the channel if that's what you like!! Owners like Chip Ganassi destroyed CART, now they have their sights set on NASCAR.. Holy Schnike's!! I say rip their fenders off and make 'em feel at home!

I think it was Tony George and his mommy that ruined CART. Chip Ganassi sent Jamie McMurray a go or go homer packing and that looks like a good payoff for Chip! I don't care much for road courses either. And JP could never even be a pimple on #3's ass!!

Meh, personally I'd trade one or two of the 1.5-mile cookie-cutters for another run on a road course, just to mix things up. and yeah, some of the recent converts from open-wheel haven't been that great, but let's not forget tony stewart came from open-wheel racing - and it's still too soon to count juan pablo out. He was the rookie of the year last year and i wouldn't be stunned if he wins on an oval this year.

Hey Kevin, Riverside is the track that claimed the life of popular NASCAR driver Little Joe Weatherly in(1964). He won back to back championships, ('62 &'63). It was speculated he would have won three in a row, making him the first NASCAR driver to do so. However, his fate was sealed in the opening race of the ('64) season. To show how quickly NASCAR acted in the wake of a tragic death then, compared to action taken now, is a perfect example of how far NASCAR has come. Weatherly died from head injuries because his head and upper body were not restrained . In ('64) shoulder harness restraint was not mandated. It was not mandated until ('65) can you believe it? A whole season had passed. It took from 1964 - 1971 before a window net was invented and mandated. Now, look at what happened after the fatal accident with Dale Earnhardt. Even more recent is Jeff Gordon's accident. Can you see NASCAR waiting a whole season to do something about that opening in the wall? Things are different today. I'ts not your father's NASCAR. As for the racing...It isn't Road America ...YET. So I'm going to accept what it is.
