Note From The Writer - Attention Non North American Readers!


I know I have viewers from outside the United States! If possible would you email me at christiank9540@gmail.com! I'd like to feature you in an article I will have in October about NASCAR Being a World Wide Sport!! Deadline to email me is next Monday The 28th! Thanks for viewing my blog and I hope to hear from you soon!

How To Fix Qualifying

Use Group Qualifying.....

It needs tweaking but other series use it and have no complaints so why can't we? The Way I see it is that Daytona 500 Qualifying Should stick to single car qualifying because many Drivers have an opportunity to race their way in during the Thursday Night Duels. Everything else should stay group qualifying! It's a smart system at some tracks because I know personally fans enjoy seeing track records broke and when a driver feels a little more nervousness some drivers actually will go faster. Drivers like Michael McDowell, Josh Wise, and drivers like that could benefit from this because in the case with Michael McDowell he could work with his Team Penske partners to get a fast lap. So Single Car Qualifying just like the old days at Daytona and The rest of the season Group Qualifying!

No More Sending Home Because Of Rain 

Alright this is becoming an issue. Ryan Blaney was 9th in practice last week in Chicago. Guess what just because it RAINED ON FRIDAY that didn't mean anything. Its been a spit in the face of drivers like Ryan Blaney, Michael McDowell, Josh Wise, Travis Kvapil, etc. These drivers are really beggining to waste their time and money by trying just to be shunned away because a little sprinkle falls. Ok Chicago was Monsoon type rain but was their really a reason we couldn't have qualified on Saturday? Daytona we had this same issue. In Fact we've had this issue numerous times this season. My idea is that if we can't qualify on Friday move it to the next day just like we do with races or Lock in the top 35 then have a duel like for the final 8 spots.

Attempts Need To Go!

Another Issue is that when it rains the guys with the least amount of attempts normally head home. No not normally ALWAYS! NASCAR needs to look at how these drivers run compared to the ones who seem to be just field stuffers I'm not saying any names but as of late its been one certain team. Michael McDowell and Leavine Family Racing would rather run a limited schedule and go in and be the best of the Underfunded drivers instead of running a full season and just being one of those field stuffers. I hate field stuffers because they take competitors out of the race. I say eliminate attempts and lock the Top 43 in Owners points if were not going to do the shootout style.
