COT is Crap On Track

Orlando, FL

#1 Oct 24, 2007
Surprised to see not posts here... had to vent... as a long time fan of all motor sports I have pretty much written off NSACAR... it has evolved into the WWF on wheels. The SCCA has had COT's in competition for years... they're called spec racers... most of you have seen spec racers before as IROC cars... sadly, all the powers at NASCAR want is to see is squeaky clean little drivers (and this irant is in no way meant to deminish the tremendous talent of the folks who compete in the series) running in tidy little circles in190 mile per hour billboards. Forget innovation, forget spending hours in a shop creating a competitive race car that might be a little faster because you found something no one else has. NASCAR has way too much control over the competitors and how they area allowed to compete. When the points race can change because a driver says the "s" word on TV or gives another driver the international driver's sign... serioulsy boys and girls. And competition yellow flags so teams can check their tires? Where did that come from? If a team isn't smart enough to manage their tires and know when to change them before rolling their car into a little ball something is wrong. Why do you have to throw a yellow flag for that? Smokey Yunich saw the handwriting on the wall when he bailed out of the NASCAR circus to go to Indy (another great tradition that has succumed to money, power struggles, and greed). I miss racing the way it used to be... just racing. Thank God for the SCCA and NASA... good, down to earth, honest to god racing being committed by racers for the love of it.
