    What a mess they have created. I pulled out years ago, but watching the debochile they call the DAYTONA 500 weekend has confirmed what I already knew! They Suck! Fox sucks as well! Newman on his roof on fire for the second time at this race, they go to POS Hamlin playing in the grass! I have totally lost respect and bad for my homie Chase! Will no longer be on my sets as blockage is in order!

      Daytona is a wreck festival caused by under talented aggressive drivers.
      Always the main characters involved, one that comes to mind is Logano.
      Joey needs an attitude adjustment.
      The bump draft is a joke

      You Tube Cletus and the figure 8 Desoto track! NASCAR might as well go to the config!

      When I read the thread title, I figured you had been in a coma since 1971 & just woke up?

      NASCAR will never be what it once was.

          For the superspeedways, they should remove the bumpers. That would stop the bump draft and wreck fest. Hope Ryan Newman is ok.

                Yes, a miscue or faux pas.
                I didn’t know of Newman’s accident.

                It’s saying I used for about twenty years.

                    I quit watching when chrysler pulled out , after winning the championship the last year.
                    Also quit watching drag racing when they quit helping A.J. in prostock.
                    Chrysler was kicking ass in nascar trucks till toyota bought out "all" the dodge racers , I quit that too !

                      It is not what it used to be. Get rid of the restrictor plates and let them race. If you can set up your car better than the rest of the field, you should not be penalized to “even” up the field.

                        jeeze dude , give it a rest. you just don't like Joey. every single driver out there is doing the same thing. wrecky stenhouse is notorious for taking out the whole fucking field. don't forget the 22 has a championship.

                            Who enjoys the crash fest. Not me! If I was an owner I would be out. I would prefer to see honest car bodies with some engine rules for overall speed and fan protection. No deck spoiler and let’s see who can drive. Bunching them all tight with current specs leads to one thing only! We saw this all weekend in the news.

                            The manufacturer if wanting “in” will make the car work with the design, like the old days. No spoiler and let’s see who can drive!

                            Make them hard to drive enough there is separation for the skilled driver! All equal according to NASCAR. Seems they are driving more in the rear view mirror and not out the windshield! JMO!

                            The restrictor plate was introduced to slow the cars down to a safer level. Not to "even up the field" though, it did just what you said.

                              it was done for fan safety. It led to the other.

                                NASCAR chose to implement rules to make the race more about the driver and team than the car.

                                If all the cars are close to being equal, then the fans go to cheering for the driver and team rather than the machine. Machines don’t give the advantage anymore, driver and team skills do.

                                Right or wrong...like it or not...it’s how it is now.

                                It could still be that way if the cars were not mandated to be almost identical!

                                  Maybe 4 way lugs wrenches should be mandated to add some space!

                                  sorry bad idea!

                                  After King Richard retired, I lost interest. Now, it’s like “Big Time Wrestling” on wheels. It’s more of a business than a sport. Used to be the other way around.
