The millenials didn't come from there, much smaller Asian and Euro cars with a lot of built in technology, front wheel drive, energy drinks and cell phones, a different style altogether. Changing schedules and changing rules every year is an obvious act of desperation, and it isn't likely going to help attendance. I've said before, in other threads, the sport is losing it's soul, if you want to know what I'm talking about, got to a local track and watch a race.
The way things are going we'll see Nissans,Hondas,Kia's and Hyundai's soon enough. Maybe remote controlled driverless cars in the push for safety?

What do you mean remote control? The cars will be autonomous and safe, you know, traction control, collision avoidance, automatic braking, blind spot protection. Modern NASCAR!

Did you see Kyle's interview where he threw the microphone?

The guy will always be a jerk, no matter how good he drives.

Congrats to Austin Dillon!

2016 was one of the weirdest years in sports...

Well, the weirdness decided to wait a year for NASCAR.

Good and bad.. Bubba Wallace is going to get a shot in the #43 while Almirola recovers..

Bad news is that they're suspending the #6 NXS team. So, once Almirola comes back, Bubba doesn't have a ride.

Though.. I think RPM might be able to pull something together for a second car for him. *IF* he does well.

Really hope Bubba does well and gets a new ride. Crappy way to get a shot but that's racing.
