    i love nascar

    I give you credit you are a dying breed. Look in the stands and you'll see. I predict that the fan base will continue to shrink until tracks start getting dropped and seasons get shorter and shorter. I would say it will go back to being a southern sport but they've burnt that bridge beyond repair. Question? Would you want to pay 15 to 20 million to put your name on a car so that less people can see it than last year? How about 12 to 15 million? Maybe but if the viewers keep dwindling, probably less the year after and so on and so on. I dont see how anything other than less viewing = less sponsorship money and the chopping goes down the tree.
    Am I bitter? Yes I am. But not because of Johnson, heck nascar made all these girly drivers the way they are. I'm mad because I used to moan when a commercial came on because I thought I might miss something and now I can't stand to watch anything more than the first 10 minutes and last 25 laps without thinking spongebob would be more fun to watch with the kid. How can I argue with the kid when she says nascar is boring? I cant anymore!

    • thats too bad you feel that way.
      nascar is a middle to lower class fan based sport where alot of people cant afford to go and pay bills.so we buy a car or a hat or shirt of our favorite driver and buy the products they sell on the side of their cars.the sport aint goin to dry up.there is billions of dollars invoved in nascar just to sweat over some ticket sales.ticket sales dont pay noone in nascar.it all adds up in the end.
      and i think the way the nba and nfl handle their athletes will ruin their sports before a bunch of honest non criminal,non drug usin,non sexual assulters,non dog killin,non gun shootin,non drunk drivin non killin,race car drivers will ever do.
