You agree with Dennis that the sport died when Dale did and you seem to have a problem with the decals (sponsors).
I would say that you just proved how little you do know.
The sport is bigger, better and more competitive than it was in 2001.
Sponsors (or decals as you refer to them) are what fund drivers, teams all the way from the local tracks to NASCAR.
Without sponsors you wouldn't see many cars on the track.
Take a trip to your local track, take a look at the cars. Most of these guys are just regular working stiffs. Without some funding they probably wouldn't be able to afford to race.
If racing is an issue for you, I advise to pick up your remote and change the channel.
Oh by the way, you made the effort to come here, so I would say you ARE a fan!
You're right Jim. I'm a huge racing fan but not of the current NASCAR variety. It's not about the racing anymore. Those days have been gone. What it is about is NASCAR making the almighty dollar and protecting their investors, the sponsors of the top 35 in points, NASCARS corporate bed partners. When NASCAR gives a free pass week after week to these 35 teams they're doing racing and the fans a great disservice. Imagine the racing you'd see if every week you actually had to qualify to make the show. I was a NASCAR fan for 40 years and in it's current corporate, sanitized incarnation, I find it unwatchable. In fact I don't even view it as racing, it's more of a corporate circus side show. There is hope though and I've found it in the USAR Hooters Pro Cup. There it's all about the racing and you actually have to qualify to make the show, how refreshing. PS: The decals I refer to are not the sponsors. The spec cars running around on Sunday are not Ford's, Chevy's, Dodge's or Toyota's. They're all the same. The only difference is the motor, nose and the manufacturers decals. So keep rooting for those decals folks....sickening

I think some of the infractions are rediculous its getting out of hand common..bolts and loose oil caps. I realize the cars have to be equal but its nuts, and I absolutely HATE the chase thing...I always thought the winner should be the winner Not the second chance guy and stripping the guy that did the best all season is just wrong I hate it that the best guy looses the championship now. The cup series is ruined and not fair.

It's not about the racing anymore Sonya. It's about NASCAR protecting the NASCAR brand and catering to their corporate bed partners( the 35 in points), while padding King Brian's wallet.... Pitiful

Lisa, you need to watch your potty mouth. I for one am sick and tired of reading your vulgarity. It's not a very proper way for a young lady to talk. Weren't you ever taught any better? No wonder you don't a boyfriend or any friends for that matter. It's disgusting to see someone talk that way especially a 17 year old girl.
