Well, dang, finally, a good, thoughtful reply to the old "NASCAR is dead or dying" lament.
Very nice, Jake.
Also, You're the only person on this board other then myself I've seen mention NASCAR and "dirt track" together. I doubt the COT could handle such an event, and it would pro'bly be too expensive to have a separate car to run dirt tracks, but they used to be a staple of the NASCAR season, long ago (I've only seen the tapes myself...). Every time someone says"more road courses", I reply "add dirt track events" - but I am purty sure NASCAR is beyond dirt tracks at this point.
But, Tony Stewart does get the guys together to run at Eldora once a year for charity, and it is some awesome dirt-tracking...
And - I sure would like to see a good ol' track/schedule myself.
A lot of fans and even the racers themselves say the season is too long...wouldn't it be awesome if they shortened the sanctioned race season and did some exhibition races at tracks not currently on the schedule. Put an end to the "boredom" we hear so much about?
