They would get more drivers if they kicked the Sprint cup drivers out that drive every week. The nationwide teams need to raise a sink bout this.

Your the dumb one. I did read the article and expressed my opinion.
I also was told Nascar is planning to make some changes in Sprint cup drivers in Nationwide racing and may put a limit on them. You need to sharpen that HATCHET>>>>> No wonder they are having trouble filling the field some teams cannot compete with sprint cup drivers every week.

Snow, I agree with you on this one. Either get the Sprint Cup guys out of Nationwide or let their points count.

It's a lack of sponsorship dollars that keeps the field limited under 43 cars smart one.......the cup drivers bring sponsors with them to the series which without them the series would be 20 cars and a broken system. For instance, M&M's wants to sponsor Kyle not Cole Whitt....The choice is Kyle or zero sponsorship dollars. Next time you read a article do it with comprehension then post with some intelligence not stupidity instead of ignorance.

Intelligence well just wait and see Mr Hatchet. I was told by a top nascar reporter that things are going to change in Nationwide and the truck races. The regulars don't have a chance with those top Sprint cup drivers. They will be limited as to how many races they can run and that will give the nationwide teams a chance.
I can understand why sponsor ship is falling by the wayside. TheY feel they cannot win. I NOTICED kYLE LOST HIS SPONSORDHIPIN HIS NATIONWIDE CAR.

This is a double edge sword, the cup drivers DO bring in $$ to Nationwide series. Both in attendance and sponsors plus TV ratings. As previously stated some sponsors will only invest in certain drivers (usually Cup drivers).
Cost to run Nationwide is very similar to Cup, reward is quite small in comparison.
I agree it's disappointing to see Cup drivers dominating the Nationwide series, but can it survive without them?

The domination of the Nationwide Series by cup driver IS the basic cause of the decline of the series. Sure the Cup drivers come with sponsors. They're the ones that have been scooped up by the Cup team owner and would have been on the side of a legitimate Nationwide driver's car if a Cup driver wasn't in the seat. Cup teams aren't going to invest in Nationwide cars if Cup drivers, Cup pitcrews and Cup crew chiefs aren't allowed in Nationwide. Those sponsors that can only afford a Cup driver when he's in a Nationwide car will spend their money on a Nationwide driver then. Big buck cars brought in by Cup teams are just a means to improve the worth of their Cup operation.

Tonight's Nationwide race had pretty good attendance but you can expect to see bigger crowds in the coming months if the young guns like Larson and Elliott keep kicking butt. Both ran up front all night and the race ended with a stunning victory for Elliott. That makes two in a row for the 18 year old. Chip off the old block, but a better chip!

If chase Elliot keeps wheeling that racecar like he did the other night the cup guys will have their hands full in the nationwide series. Chase Elliot and Kyle Larson are what this series needed

Except Kyle Larson is a full time cup driver not a NW series driver.

True, but I foresee Larson getting seat time in nationwide just to get some additional experience. They should have left Austin dillon one more year in nationwide
