tridentgum0;3136303 said:It bothers me that the same guys are winning every week. NASCAR should make a bunch of equal cars and see who's actually the most talented driver instead of who has the richest owner.
Sarge51;3136342 said:I think once the chase kicks in they should stop letting the rest of the drivers, who aren't in the chase, from driving.
Sarge51;3136444 said:I think more cars = faster speeds, though. Not sure how it would be if it was just 12 cars on the track.

Mega-Tallica;3136320 said:Agreed and that's one of the factors in why I stopped watching it. The independent racing teams never win a race and I feel that all 43 cars in the field should have an equal playing surface. Every car should be setup exactly the same and only pure driver skill should play a factor in a driver winning a race or not. Weren't the IROC races setup like that? Do they still have those btw?

n4sc4r;3207155 said:I agree with this for the most part, but not entirely. While I can see what you're saying, how can the nationwide drivers be compared to cup drivers if they never get a chance to go against them on fairly equal equipment? I like having a couple drivers each race to challenge the nationwide drivers so they learn a few things. I would propose a limited schedule for each driver, like maybe 5-7 races max.
iamtheddrman;3207313 said:It should be a proving ground. The best Nationwide drivers should be able to hold their own in Sprint Cup. Sure, the cars are different and the drivers are much better in Sprint Cup, but it's still a safe bet to assume the best in Nationwide will stand the best chance of doing well in Sprint Cup. If they want a chance to prove their mettle, they should be allowed to do testing sessions in current Sprint Cup cars, either during the race weekend, or in off-season testing segments.
n4sc4r;3207416 said:I do like this idea quite a bit too. The only thing I dislike is the fact that even then it would be nearly impossible to judge a driver's skill, as they're usually given the worst of the organization's equipment. How can they prove their talent with a 35th place car?
