Nascar wasn't having any trouble getting fans or with slumping ratings until they started ignoring their long time and faithful fans that made it what it is today. The U.S. fans should boycott the ungrateful SOB's and then they really would be crying about ratings. Let them take their foreign cars and drivers somewhere else and then we can start over with somebody that cares about us at home.

If NASCAR is going to race outside the USA the cost of doing so should not fall on the shoulders of one of the lesser divisions. What would really be funny is for the Nationwide owners to sign up and then not show up in Mexico and let NASCAR try to put on the race with 17 or 18 cars that the Cup boys, road race ringers and Mexican drivers will be in. They could save a ton of money and make a point with NASCAR at the same time.

I'm pretty sure if they want to host a race they pay a hosting fee or they don't race there, solve that problem first! Go collect some money for your favorite track! Nascar sets the price and if they can't afford it it doesn't happen, get it? The execs want Nascar to be worldwide it's called growth.
