Put as much spin on it as you'd like, but Cup drivers should NOT be allowed to race in the Nationwide series. I don't know of any NBA players in semi-pro games (Not allowed) or major league baseball players doing double duty in the minors. There are now as many cup drivers racing in Nationwide as there are up and comers and squeezing out the younger drivers.

The track owners want to sell tickets to the Nationwide races, so they let the Cup drivers race. That's all. No more, no less.

I never thought of it that way it now makes sense. It's more of helping the tracks sell tickets then being unfair.
