I wonder if the inbred hicks that run NA$CRAP will fine Shelmerdine for holding a fire sale? I mean, there must be some idiotic NA$CRAP rule that says he should be docked at least 200 owner points for this infraction. If not, NA$CRAP can simply make up a penalty (like they usually do) and demand that Shelmerdine's children pay the fine since Kirk is broke.

Shelmerdine is going to sell off the residue of his team for pennies on the dollar because the real value of a race team is virtually nothing. Any real estate involved is going to be the only thing worth anything. This situation exists because NASCAR is too stupid to realize that franchising is the only way to give value to the teams and provide a future for the sport. With franchising the strangle hold that the mega teams have can be broken because new people will be interested in coming into the sport once they know by buying a franchise they will be in the race every week. Sponsors will be easier to obtain because with franchising their logo will be there every week. Where would the other major sports be without franchising?
