rule #1) Good idea having 1 engineer from each company.
" #2) That has been a rule for decades now.
" #3) Tech Inspectors should be a huge part of the rules committee
" #4) Not going to ever happen.
" #5) I think the last race should be Thanksgiving weekend. 40 should be
min. number of races.
" #6) Um, it will ALWAYS be as is today! They own it, soooo.......
" #7) That is a complete lack of understanding dyno testing to say none
none allowed!!! Dyno'ing in many cases has nothing to do with trying to find more power as it might be a durability test, which can lead to better parts for all teams!
" #8) They have gear rules at some tracks already. Te restrictor plate should be axed!
" #9) While not pretty, depends on what you would replace it with. The old Mopar Daytona and SuperBird wings would work.
"#10) won't work in nascar where the engine is used only 1 race.

Get rid of the announcers! Personally I just would like to watch the race and not hear all the chit-chat ( yelling) in-between! Also do something about the parking around the race tracks. The reason we won't go to Charlotte Motor Speedway anymore is because it takes 4 hours just to get out of the parking lot. Insane! They need to figure out a better way to handle the traffic or to have better transportation to the race tracks.

What would be cool is if they had remote lots in surrounding towns (Harrisburg, Concord, Huntersville, Verizon Amphitheater,etc) and then had express busses running in a dedicated lane to and from the track. Obviously you can't have a dedicated lane all the way to each of the lots, but you run it for a couple of miles from the track proper. I'd ride it!

There you go! I really think they actually could have a dedicated lane for a good distance---they make all the lanes go one direction as it is so why not? Ah, we can dream. Ha! Now to lose all but one announcer and maybe a few more people would come back to watching car races again! I actually get a headache trying to hear the races nowdays. Those guys are just to loud and spend more time joking back and forth then watching the race. Half the time they don't seem to see what really happened. Oh well, it is what it is!

My last trip to CMS the parking situation had improved. Rather than "every man for himself" mentality employed by CMS the parking attendants were on hand after the race to direct race fans leaving.
Cut the wait time in half.

Give the fans water guns so they can squirt it on the turns when the guy they hate is coming down the straight away.

...and free dentistry. (true story so don't hate, I thought it was funny at the time.)

My question is, why and the hell doesn't NASCAR listen to what the fans want?

Because there is no way they could please --you--regardless what changes they made.

Quite evident from reading your posts on NASCAR.

Some people are " professional" war protestors.
Some are " professional" NASCAR bashers.
