Rea White: It's time to consider cutting the Cup schedule
CONCORD, N.C. Why is the NASCAR season so long? Everyone is always talking about shortening races, but how about trimming the schedule a little.

i think that the races are better when they are 5 and 600 miles, because the drivers fatigue, and it shows who is the better driver. i would be offened if NASCAR shortened the season by more than 4 or 5 races. GO KASEY KAHNE!#9 ROCKS!

I don't want to see less races. I as a fan get a little saddened when we come upon an off week. I'd have them racing all year long. We crown a champ and then move on to the Daytona 500 after a two week break.
I know its not practical, but I love me some racing.

I get all the short races (50 laps or less) I want at local tracks. Keep the races long, but drop the dual date tracks and stick some of the old school tracks back in (Rockingham for instance).
Short tracks may not seat as many people as the "Cookie Cutter" tracks, but the racing is awesome. If they wanna keep the "Cookie Cutter" tracks uncork the cars, un-aero the cars (make them less aerodynamic) and lets get back to the Bill Elliot like speeds in the 200's flat out sling shot style racing.
The cars and tracks are safer than ever yet they are making the cars slower than ever. There is a point where the race has left the racing and safety has become the mud on our running shoes. This is racing, open them up, drop the dual date tracks, and reinstate the classic originals if they don't want to shorten the season.
Better yet, stagger the seasons so Bush (what ever, "NATIONWIDE"), Cup and Trucks don't all run at the same time. Feb-Sept = Cup, May-Dec = "Nationwide" and Aug-Apr = Trucks with ARCA in there somewhere too (gotta admit; ARCA racing is sometimes pretty good too). Since many of the Cup drivers trickle down to the lower classes we can see them run almost every weekend of the year.
