NASCAR announces major format changes for all three national divisions
 Nascar Series

In Reply to: NASCAR announces major format changes for all three national divisions by Marv on January 24, 2017 at 4:56pm

This latest new change does not surprise me in the least.   I have said for the past five years or so that NASCAR is leaving it's racing heritage and has become almost exclusively a made for TV entertainment package.   NASCAR realizes that they have run the historic fans away by their attempts to make all tracks look the same and expanding to other venues at the expense of the tracks that made NASCAR.   They realize that they will never get many of the older fans back and the trendy fans had the life expectancy that I pretty much expected. I had to laugh at the tracks that could not sell tickets all of a sudden made the term "Right Sizing" sound like a positive thing and not the fact that they could not sell or even give away tickets.   Now we see that for the past two or three years the TV honeymoon is pretty much over and the ratings have gone down the porcelain throne and NASCAR desperately needs to grow these numbers.   The choices were fairly few with the obvious options being making the races shorter or segmenting them.   Well time will tell, NASCAR has reduced the full field from 43 to 40 cars and last time I checked Jayski they only had 37 full time registered teams this close to Daytona.   I decided a couple of years ago that I much preferred dirt track racing and SCCA road racing so I am not effected by the changes.

By the way, The State of NASCAR is fairly obvious when Sponsor Magnet Danica Patrick is still in search of a partial sponsor for this year.
