i have no problem making it or any others shorter, but i also remember when dover went to 400 miles. the ticket was over 60 and they lowered it 100 miles and gave us back $2. with my math that meant that $10 equalled 500 miles and i was ovedr paying?!

they also used to start at 12 being over by 5, NOW,,,,, for TV!?..... they dont even start until 215 or so and its not over until 6!!!!!

that is what is worse yet! notice more and more empty seats at dover. last week they had 4 large covers over sections on the backs stretch and many seats throughout on a perfect day. can you spell stauration?!

NASCAR is much better when you watch it on TV. When you're at the race, it's hot, it's loud, you wait in line to get a $4 soda or $6 beer, then you wait in line to use the restroom. After the race, you sit in your car, fighting traffic to get out of the parking lot. Who wants to pay $60 for that?
