Hi Norris: Re: NASCAR RACES TOO LONG

The media attention given NASCAR and their attendance and sponsorship problems could be remedied with the following formula.

Run Sunday like a Saturday night show

qualifying as normal....on Sunday

5 heats.....top six inverted (6 cars go to the A main)

2 B Mains....top 6 qualify plus Champion's provisional

no top 35 in points qualification....all are equal

A main lenth to be determined by total TV time and track size
Only afew select 500 mile races to be run....like Daytona

Benefits:
1. All the cars get on TV....better for sponsors

2. The start and park guys can race....shorter races cost less

3. Everyone has to race all the time....better for fans

4. The personality may return to the sport. Have at it boys

5. Greater connection to the roots of the sport. Helps promote
grass roots racing everywhere with similar format

PS:

I am not a big taxi cab supporter anyways, much preferring to stick to sprint cars and supermodifieds, but, if this helps all forms of racing, I am for it.

This still gives the guys at Speed Channel all the time they want to blabber away in the days prior to the race.....or....they could show more open wheel short track stuff!!! Trouble is they are faster than the taxi cabs
