The season is almost upon us! This will be the thread to discuss race results, rumors, news, etc. Who's ready for the Sprint Unlimited this weekend?!

Well I am ready for NASCAR to go back to the website they had last year. Their new one is sad........looks as if a middle school kid designed it for a homework assignment, and received a D- on it.

I disagree. I think it's very well laid out and more modern. It was designed for the younger generation

Should be interesting to see how the drafting goes tomorrow night, hasn't been very good so far to say the least.

So it's not just me, I thought something was wrong with my browser.

I knew there was nothing wrong with my browser!

I just plain don't like it.
It is overly graphic and I had trouble finding race times. I finally just looked at the schedule.
I liked the easy access at the top of the page last year and wish they would bring that back.

(Sorry, my "Smilies" went crazy on me.)

It hasn't been very good by design. IMO most fans don't like tandem racing and neither does NASCAR and so far it appears that the new cars don't seem to connect like they used to.
It's good to see that the cars are looking a lot more like the street versions.
As soon as they can get rid of those competition reducing restrictor plates they can get back to real racing like they have at the non restrictor tracks.

Oh, I know. I wasn't referring to the tandem racing, I'm glad it's gone as well. I was talking about how they can't seem to go very long in the draft without wrecking lol. I'd like to see them take off the restrictor plate as well, it would be cool seeing the cars going 220+

I saw Biffle really bumping o rear at last of rece ;so perhaps they are not sure and want to save equipment for real race.I don't see these cars esepcially goig 220 which is why the restrictor plates anyway.Bet with their aero they would be like on ice at that speed.they seemed to be pretty lose in rear at 197.
