I think you should limit the Cup drivers to only run no more than six Busch races a year. Jr, Burton, and Tony Stewart run bout that many and i think it would get fans and still help to develop new coming drivers. Harvick and Edwards just ruined the Busch series this past year.
I agree, I was going to say five races.It would be nice for some of these young guys to maybe win a race or get a top five finish. Each week the top ten was full of cup regulars. Do they really fell good about beating the bush regulars.

I think the current format is fine. Keep the Cup drivers racing. How else are the 'young' guys going to learn if they dont race against the best drivers? Also, how many people would show up/watch tv for the Busch races without the Cup drivers...?

<quoted text>Dude ,You are missing the whole point. These young drivers do nat have the resources like the cup guys do ,therefore do not have the equipment like the cup guys do. This is bullshit when guys like Harvick and Biffle committ to a full Busch schedule just to pick on lower revenue teams. I've tried to say all along that it would be like an NFL team playing in the Arena league just to win meaningless title. Harvick ought to be ashamed of accepting that trophy. What the fuck did he prove.
Nevada I don't know how to say this but I think I agree with you. I always compare it to a great major league baseball pitcher pitching a no hitter in the minors.

Because of the format I don't watch the Bush races much because I hate watching the Cup stars enjoying the good results they get over the newcomers.

I think the cup drivers should run in some of the busch races but not have them run a whole season. How else are these young guys going to get a win? I mean come on Harvick won the title last year with a huge point lead. I understand sometimes its good for the cup guys to run them and be in them...but a full year of the cup guys running. Its all about new talent getting out there and getting a chance, you can not do that when you have the top filled with cup regulars. I watch some busch races but not all of them...its gets boring when you see the cup drivers winning most of the races over the guys with little experience.

In typical NASCAR promotional style, the cup driver driving in the Busch races are there to pull fans and add dollars to the bottom line.
IWe hear time and time again how good the cup drivers are. So, if that be the case, Why dont the organizers run qualifying as it is run today, then the fastest Busch driver starts at the front of the field with all other busch drivers behind the pole sitter as arranged now, then the cup drivers form the remainder of the field, with the fastest cup driver on the cup pole so to speak right behind the slowest Busch driver. If the cup drivers are as good as we hear they are, they will be able to drive around mishaps, the fans will see lots of passing, the Busch drivers will have an excellent opportunity of learning how to run at the front of the pack and possibly gain additional funding with a decent pay check by winning the race.

Cup drivers should be limited to so many races. If you eliminated them completely I don't even know if they could get enough to make a full field. The drivers who are up and coming deserve to get some glory too.
