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?

Sarge51;3208303 said:Except NASCAR had to be douchebags and scare everyone into driving into a single line through a large portion of the race. But, at the end and close to the halfway mark things were getting hectic. I just wished ABC would stop interrupting my HD and that the announcers would get their heads out of Jimmy Johnson's ass. Dead last, and there's all kind of possible lead changes going on up front and they are focusing on him. Surprisingly after the final wreck he DID finally get pushed up and got a decent finish. :/Still... sorely disappointed that a FORD won Talledega.

tridentgum0;3210346 said:I'd rather see an evenly matched field than one guy dominating the whole race, every race, which is sort of the problem now.
n4sc4r;3210521 said:Ugh, talks of cookie-cutter tracks like Atlanta and Lowe's irritate me to no end. I have nothing against the races at tracks like that, and they can be fun, but those tracks just make up way to much of the schedule. I know Lowe's is close to the area many teams are located, but 3 races a year? Ridiculous. The races like these in the chase are just stupid. Wanna guess why Jimmi Johnson (Chad Knaus I shoulkd say) wins so many championships now? The chase is tailor made for him. All of his worst tracks arrive during the summer (Much like Kyle Busch).
iamtheddrman;3208747 said:What do you expect them to do? Jimmie Johnson is first in the Chase, and on the track to win an unprecedented 4-in-a-row title. They have to keep track of the points leaders or the people who actually care about that (like me) more than a boring race at a superspeedway will get mad that they aren't checking the points race. You also have to consider that he was using a strategy that required him to stay at the back of the pack. He could've moved up any time he wanted, but since he stayed in the back, he avoided the first wreck and gained over 10 positions. Then he was able to move up ahead of the second wreck for a respectable finish.Talladega and Daytona suck. Give me Fontana, Atlanta and Lowe's and I'll be happy any day.
Sarge51;3214554 said:Just saying. When there's 15 or less laps to go, don't focus on someone who is in 31st place when there's three rows of cars battling it out for first place up front. That annoys me to no end. I don't mind when they talk about him or do that split-screen thing and show him AND the leaders, though. I still think hanging back was a risk though, he could have got caught in it, but luckily he didn't. Oh no you didn't. Talladega used to be a great race, but now it's boring with all these restrictions. I love Talladega, though, it's nothing but pure speed throughout the entire race! It's also an easy track to race on in the games if you've ever played them. I was never good at tracks where you have to slow down a lot to get through the corners.
iamtheddrman;3215053 said:The superspeedway races bore me in real life (due to restrictor plates and other stupid sanctions) and in games (due to hammering the throttle non-stop for however long the race lasts). To be honest, the last NASCAR game I played was 08, and I only played it for 2 hours. The handling was TERRIBLE in that game, and I wasn't about to trade the thing back in for 18 bucks the day after release to the Evil Game Empire. I love tracks like Bristol and Atlanta in the games because it's still full throttle for a lot of the race, but you have to take a perfect line through the corners to cut through traffic (or just stay on the track ). Talladega is pretty much a "race wherever you want" track, especially in the games.
