NASCAR: It's About Time...

NASCAR finally opened its eyes, or it finally got its head out of its butt, whichever you prefer. I've been stating for years that the sport of stock car auto racing had become boring, at best. There was no individualism to the sport anymore. One driver couldn't out-drive another with the best man winning. NASCAR had placed too many restrictions on both the cars and the drivers. They had micro-controlled the sport to the point where it wasn't really racing anymore. It was the outdoors version of WWE, and the governing body would have loved to had victory lane set-up before the green flag dropped. It had become a complete joke. Evidently, the venting of both drivers and fans has made an impression on the "Powers That Be" in NASCAR. This season, they have declared that drivers can go back to 'racin' and feudin' the way NASCAR was in its heyday. The way it is supposed to be. Just like the old saying goes: "If you ain't rubbing, you ain't racing"!
